The 22 years old Pagara is undefeated in 26 fights, 18 by way of knockouts. He’s an explosive fighter that has decent power in both hands. He can stop an opponent early in the fight, but can last the distance too, if he needs to.
In his last two outings, Pagara wipe out William Gonzalez on his stateside debut at the StubHub Center, in Carson, California in October 2015. Pagara blitzed Gonzalez with powerful shots after scoring two knockdowns, one in round 2 and then another one in round 6.
Pagara came back to his native Philippines and fought Nicaraguan Yesner Talavera whose trainer was former flyweight champion Rosendo Alvarez. Pagara won a 12-round unanimous decision over Talavera who eventually came to survive.
Pagara is expected to step up in competition this year and could challenge any of the world title holder at his division.
