Johnriel Casimero vs Pedro Guevarra live stream today 1:00 PM August 5, 2012
Johnriel “Quadro Alas” Casimero will be defending his crown of IBF light flyweight title against the undefeated Mexican challenger Pedro Guevara today, August 5, 2012. This face off will be one of the most difficult task for Casimero as he defends his title for the first time. The live stream event is to happen at the Convention Center in the Pinoy rival’s hometown of Mazatlan in Sinaloa, Mexico but the match will be aired via satellite live streaming on AKTV channel 13 in local Philippines television network. The bout will start according to news releases at about 1:00 pm but I’m not sure if this will feature the main event or the undercard boxing bouts first.
The 23-year-old Casimero, who carries boxing ring record of 16-2 win-loss record attached with an astounding 10 KO tally on his belt. He will be going against another Mexican undefeated fighter in Pedro Guevara, who had a perfect and unblemished ring record of 19 fights with only 1 draw and 13 wins via KO / stoppage.
If you can remember, Johnriel Casimero won the interim title with a 10th round TKO over Argentina’s Luis Lazarte where the Pinoy suffered a brawl of the crowd and resulted in one of the most controversial mauling of foreign boxer in that country. The riot last February 10 was a result of dismay that the Argentinian fans did not expect their fighter to loose overwhelmingly against the Filipino boxer.
He was later on declared to become a full-pledged champion by IBF Championship Committee chairman Lindsey Tucker after champion Ulises Solis indicated he wouldn’t be unable to defend his title due to surgery. The Mexican opponent is knockout artist so the Pinoy had to overcome psychological and hometown fear as the fight is to happen in Mexico. Casimero vs Guevarra gives hopes to Pinoys in the boxing arena.
