CONDES BEING LINED UP FOR WBA TITLE FIGHT

American Dante Ortiz who negotiated for Florante Condes to get a mandatory title fight against Raul “Rayito” Garcia which Condes lost largely due to his wrong tactics in the early rounds, is this time working on a WBA title fight against Nicaragua’s Roman “Chocalatito” Gonzalez early next year.


In an email to http://www.insidesports.ph, Standard Today and Viva Sports, Ortiz said he had a “long talk” with matchmaker Alex Marin and promoter Silvio Conrado of Promotora Prodesa in Nicaragua and said “they both welcomed the proposal” of a title defense against Condes.

Ortiz said he had promosed that Rey Labao who he manages fighting for a regional super featherweight title against a Japanese since well-known Japanese businessman-sportsman Akihiko Honda promotes Gonzales in Asia.

Ortiz said he had discussed Condes fight plans with well-known promoter Sammy Gello-ani who is flying to Manila over the weekend to meet with Condes regarding a possible ten-round tune-up fight on November 30.

Condes will need to fight since he hasn’t seen action since the loss to Garcia in Mexico last June.

Ortiz expressed the hope that Condes who is currently ranked No. 4 minimum weight by the WBA will “take advantage of this opportunity” even as he expressed confidence in the experience and power of “The Little Pacquiao” to become a world champion again.

Condes won the IBF title with a hard-fought twelve round decision of Indonesia’s Muhammad Rachman in July 2007 but problems with his manager and contractual dispute with his American promoter delayed the title defense for almost one year,
