ILOILO CITY – Ilonggo boxer Denver ‘The Excitement’ Cuello is more than ready for his 10-round non-title fight against an Indonesian challenger on Saturday, March 10, at the Jaro covered gym here.
Currently the World Boxing Council (WBC) Silver Minimumweight champion, Cuello said he is excited to fight in front of his hometown crowd.
But the boxer from Cabatuan, Iloilo admitted he felt nervous about what reaction he would receive from the Ilonggo audience eager to witness his fight against Indonesian Kid ‘El Chivato’ Suryana.
Cuello arrived on Wednesday together with two boxers, also from Iloilo, who are seeing action in the undercard and preliminary bouts.
The two boxers are Jomar Fajardo of San Miguel town and Leonil Legada of Lambunao, who will be pitted against Filipino boxers from Mindanao.
Kid Suryana and his group already arrived in Iloilo City last Tuesday.
