Ic3 Con­ven­tion Cen­ter to host Pi­noy Pride 41

Cebu Daily News - - SPORTS - /PR

ALA Pro­mo­tions In­ter­na­tional of­fi­cially an­nounces its next Pi­noy Pride edi­tion to be staged in the new ic3 Con­ven­tion Cen­ter (for­merly IEC Pavil­ion) in Mabolo, Cebu City.

To re­call, right after the Ni­etes-Nan­tapech IBF world cham­pi­onship last April, ALA Pro­mo­tions Pres­i­dent/CEO Michael Aldeguer re­vealed that the un­de­feated Mark “Mag­nifico” Magsayo, who was fea­tured in the co-main bout against Tan­za­nian vet­eran Issa Nam­pepeche, would head­line the next Pi­noy Pride.

Cur­rently with an un­beaten record of 16 fights, Magsayo earned his Pi­noy Pride main event de­but by knock­ing Nam­pepeche out in the very first round of their sched­uled 10-round feath­er­weight clash.

Magsayo’s sta­ble mate and Philip­pines’ No. 2 Su­per Ban­tamweight Jeo “Santino” San­tisima also makes a big leap in his boxing ca­reer as he steps up and takes the Pi­noy Pride 41 stage as the card’s co­main event.

“We want to ex­plore more venues for our boxing shows here in Cebu, where boxing fans thrive, so we could reach out to a wider au­di­ence and cater to a larger, more spe­cific mar­ket. We are glad ic3 has opened its doors to dif­fer­ent types of events. With the Con­ven­tion Cen­ter’s ameni­ties, our live au­di­ence is guar­an­teed to en­joy the show com­fort­ably,” dis­closed Aldeguer when asked about the new venue.

Ini­tially built to host the 2016 In­ter­na­tional Eucharis­tic Congress, the ic3 Con­ven­tion Cen­ter has an im­pres­sive 10,000 seat­ing ca­pac­ity, fully air-con­di­tioned halls, and a spa­cious base­ment park­ing fit for large-scale events such as Pi­noy Pride.

Pi­noy Pride 41 is ALA Pro­mo­tions’ se­cond event of the year and will take stage on July 8, 2017.
