The highly successful Pinoy Pride series takes a giant hurdle this weekend. Pinoy Pride 27th installment will takes place in the international stage. The first of its kind and it will be in Dubai.
ALA Boxing mainstays Genesis Servania, “King” Arthur Villanueva and Rey Boom Boom Baustista will be up against their Latino counterpart.
This boxing event dubbed “Duel in Dubai” will be held at the Dubai World Trade Center. The Filipino Channel (TFC) has been promoting this card in the Middle East. TFC is part of ABS-CBN TV network, the biggest TV network in the Philippines. Through its vast subscribers, this event gets a lot of leverage in exposure.
There are around 2.5 million Filipinos around the Middle East especially in the GCC area.
In Dubai, there are 931, 562 Filipinos.
If Mr. Tony Aldequer’s venture in Dubai will come out successful, I think there will more boxing card coming up in the future. As a boxing fan, I’m willing to spend my hard earned dinar. And I will travel to Dubai if world class fights will be staged there.
Well, for the first Pinoy Pride International show in Dubai gives us world rated boxers. And here they are: The Pinoy Pride 27 fight card in Dubai.
