One of the Philippines hottest boxing prospects Mark “Magnifico” Magsayo Magsayo (20-0, 14 KOs) and rugged Mexican southpaw Rigoberto Hermosillo (11-2-1, 8 KOs) will headline the main event FS1 PBC Fight Night card live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on October 3, and the event will be live streamed online on the Fox Sports app or Foxsportsgo.
Magsayo is an unbeaten featherweight contender who is ranked in the top five by both the WBC and IBF. He has carved out a swatch through the Philippines circuit and has also competed in Singapore.
This is Magsayo’s first fight under the mentorship of legendary multi-weight champion Manny Pacquiao. It almost seems like the coming-out party to the boxing world at large is inevitable.
Magsayo, 25, hasn’t fought in over a year when he beat Panya Uthok of Thailand by unanimous decision in August of 2019.
Like many young up and coming Filipino fighters, Magsayo gains inspiration from the success of fellow countryman and ring legend Manny “Pac-Man” Pacquiao and is ready to make his own path to boxing glory.
The undefeated Filipino prospect will be hungry to put on a show since boxing has been allowed to resume in the State of California since the Covid-19 Pandemic spread globally.
He will be taking on hard hitting Mexican slugger Rigoberto Hermosillo in a 10-round featherweight main event that will be sure to entertain the masses.
In the co-main event undefeated Philadelphia welterweight prospect Paul Kroll (7-0, 6 KOs) takes on California prospect Lucas Santamaria (11-1-1, 7 KOs) in a 10-round bout.
Kroll is quickly becoming known as a knockout artist after stopping Marcel Rivers in the fourth round in January, he is going to take on another hungry young prospect in Santamaria who recently beat Mykal Fox by decision last August.
Magsayo has been putting in work with iconic trainer Freddie Roach and a plan is being mapped out for a world championship bid. This after capturing the WBO international featherweight title and the WBC Asian Boxing Council featherweight belt in prior efforts.
His last bout was a lopsided decision win over former WBO bantamweight titleholder Panya Uthok in August of last year.
The fight card is presented by Fox Sports one, Premier Boxing Champions, and TGB promotions.
