Francisco-Singwangcha presser

The dream of undefeated Filipino superflyweight Drian Francisco (20-0-1, 16 KOs) is one day to get in the ring to face Mexican warrior WBA superflyweight world champion Hugo “El Increible” Cazares (34-6-2, 24 KO’s) of Los Mochis, Sinaloa.   But for that, Francisco will have to first successfuly defend his WBA interim superflyweight title against glory hungry 23-years-old Thai challenger Tepparith Singwancha (15-2, 10KOs) in Petchaburi, Thailand this Sunday May 1st.
 
This will be the second consecutive fight of Francisco in The Kingdom of Thailand as last November the Agoncillo fighter defeated Thai Duangpetch Kokietgym (52-2-1, 21KO’s), in the northern city of Nong Khai, to earn his WBA interim title.     Prior to that title win, Drian Francisco defeated highly regarded Panama fighters two-divisions world champion Roberto “La Arana” Vasquez and WBA Inter-Continental super flyweight champ Ricardo “El Matematico” Nunez.
 
For Teeparith Singwancha, a former Muay Thai fighter and current PABA flyweight champion, this will be his first battle as a superflyweight, but he has confidence that he can pull the huge victory.     “I want to win.   I can not let down my manager (Mr. Naris Singwancha), i must win.  Its a matter of honor”, said the Thai fighter during the presscon at the 13 Coins Hotel today in downtown Bangkok.
