Romero Duno was all but excited for Saturday night as he made his appearance in the boxers’ grand arrival at the MGM Grand, Tuesday afternoon.

“I feel excited for this fight because this is a big card,” the pride of Cotabato said.

Duno will fight the American Ryan Garcia for the vacant WBC Silver Lightweight title and will be the co-main event of the Canelo Alvarez-Sergey Kovalev fight.

The 24-year old, however, is a heavy underdog in the fight. Garcia has a clean slate of 18 wins with 15 knockouts while Duno has 21 wins including 16 KOs and one defeat.

“A lot of people said that King Ryan will beat you, King Ryan’s speed will beat your power. I said to myself maybe I can have a technique to counter that kind of speed,” he recalled.

Duno earned the alias “Ruthless” because of his power punches while Garcia is known as “the Flash” due to his speed.

Making things possible for Duno-Garcia fight was the Golden Boy Promotions led by its CEO Oscar Dela Hoya after it failed to push through on the first offer.

The fight itself will greatly boost Duno’s campaign to make his name known as Garcia is very popular in social media with his million followers. And a win from the fight could eventually draw interest for bigger names in the boxing world.

Francis Ngannou cries ‘deception’ vs Anthony Joshua camp

Former UFC fighter Francis Ngannou accused AJ camp of ‘trickery’ when he suffered devastating knockdowns in the first and second round last March 8, 2024 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The MMA fighter and former UFC heavyweight champion said that AJ camp sabotaged him by letting him go early in the arena.

“We both fought at 3am. What I think, something that’s happened is that they get me to the arena very early. Like my pickup time was 10.30pm to go to the arena. And then when we get to the arena, they tell us that we are scheduled around 1.45am. right?” Ngannou blurted.

He believed that he came exhausted, which resulted in his humiliating defeat.
