The ten-round main event will take place at at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan City. The event is under MAG Pacman Promotions, which is run by Pacquiao, Gerry Penalosa, and businessman Anson Tiu Co.

The 29-year-old Bicolano boxer holds a record of 37-4-4, with 29 knockouts.

Meanwhile, 39-year-old Velasquez who hails from Tijuana, Mexico, has a record of 56-20-3, with 38 knockouts.

Velasquez was once defeated by People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao as well as now-deceased Edwin Valero.

For the past several years, Farenas has been under the guidance of Penalosa, who is also a boxing champion.

Penalosa says that while Velasquez lost to Pacquiao and Valero, his boxing skills should not be understimated. He is, however, confident that Farenas will win the fight. - BICOLSTANDARD.COM
