This is a great opportunity for every Filipino Boxer to step up and build their names in boxing where the best of each stables within the Philippines are determined so we will get getting another good fighter that could compete with other boxers internationally.
This could be a good evaluation of current boxers that will be joining of competition if they are into the next level of the league. With the efforts and support of the Game and Amusement Board (GAB) Chairman Abraham, I am sure that the competition will be more orderly and organized.
