Vietnam’s Dinh Hong Quan (9-1) will defend his IBF Asia title at Grand Ho Tram on Saturday, December 10 on a card that will host five counties bringing their best boxers to Vietnam.
Young gunman Quan will be thrown into the spotlight, competing in the main event against Arnel Baconaje of the Philippines, a ring specialist who has scored 11 of his 15 victories.
Baconaje has put some of his country’s best to bed, so he will likely start with a big advantage over his Vietnamese opponent.
Arnel Baconaje is currently training in Japan with a man considered by many to be the best pound for pound fighter in the world – “Monster” Naoya Inoue.
In the meantime, the Vietnam boxing champion Quan is in South Korea, with the aim of meeting a great history in Manny Pacquiao.
Dinh Hong Quan will hold his camp on December 10 in General Santos City Philippines, where he will join Pacquiao’s team to fast track his progress.
Grand Ho Tram will showcase 4 titles in total, featuring fighters from the Philippines, Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
Another big news is that the country will be represented in 5 of the 8 games that have been organized.
VSP Promotions and Cocky Buffalo will be promoting this great event which will take place at the Grand Ho Tram Strip on Saturday 10th December.
Full fight card and ticket information will be available soon.
