Polomolok, South Cotabato – Reigning WBC Asia Council Continental flyweight champion Fernando Lumacad (23-3-3, 10 KOs) of Zamboanga del Sur will attempt to revitalize his fight career and get back on the glory road this weekend, September 3rd, 2011 at Polomolok, South Cotabato, Philippines. On the opposite corner will be Rocky Sardido (5-9-1, 2 KOs) of Davao del Sur.
The fight is scheduled for 10 rounds at the super flyweight division.
Lumacad has figured in a number of career-defining bouts but has yet to register a win in a very important match. Lumacad’s three losses were dealt by top tier fighters – former world title contenders Wandee Singwangcha and Goofy Montes, and current WBO super bantamweight titleholder Jorge Arce. He also has a draw with the recently crowned WBC super flyweight Suriyan Sor Rungvisai.
Working with a new management headed by Jim Claude Manangquil of JM Promotions and Dexter Tan of SanMan Promotions, Lumacad is looking forward to get another chance to fight on a world stage and earn a title shot in the near future. Lumacad was managed by Ken Smith of United States before signing with JM Promotions.
“Lumacad is a different fighter now,” Manangquil told this writer. “He is more determined, more focused to become a world champion.”
“He has the tools but not the dedication,” Manangquil added. “Lumacad is now dedicated and is ready to take on all the champions from 112 to 115.”
