Pinoy Pride 42 this coming September in Cebu is shaping up to be one of the most exciting cards of the year, with IBF light-flyweight champion Milan Melindo defending his championship against South Africa’s Hekkie Budler in the main event.
Another highly-anticipated matchup however, is the co-main event, a super-flyweight title eliminator match between former world champion Johnriel Casimero and ALA Boxing up-and-comer Jonas Sultan. The winner gets a shot at reigning IBF super-flyweight king Jerwin Ancajas.
With such a big prize at stake, it looks like the two Pinoys can’t wait to get at each other.
In a post from ALA Boxing head coach Edito Villamor, Casimero and Sultan have already engaged in a little social media banter.

The photo on the left is Casimero flexing and showing off his physique for the fight, with the caption “Homanda ka na…”
The photo on the right, appears to be a response in jest from Sultan, which shows the ALA boxer with a pair of fake shades and fake tattoos on, obviously taking shots at Casimero’s ink. The post is accompanied by the caption “Nakahanda na!!!!”
While this is likely just some good-natured banter between the two, it still surely makes for an interesting build-up for to fight.
Pinoy Pride 42 takes place on Saturday, September 16th at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu.
