Rey “Boom-Boom” Bautista Heads Pinoy Pride 6: Grudge Rematch on ABS-CBN

Charismatic Filipino featherweight fighter Rey "Boom Boom" Bautista gets a crack at retribution when he battles Mexico's Heriberto "Cuate" Ruiz of Mexico for the IBF International Championship belt on PINOY PRIDE 6: GRUDGE REMATCH.

Catch the action via satellite on ABS-CBN on June 12 (Sunday) at 10:15am with replays on Studio 23 at 12nn and Balls Channel on Friday (June 24) at 6pm.

Bautista lost to Ruiz via unanimous decision during their first encounter in Las Vegas on November of 2008 wherein the counter punching Mexican floored the Boholano banger during the third round. According to experts, this fight is a must-see as both fighters are coming into the fight with different motivations. With Ruiz having the psychological edge coming into the fight, Bautista has nothing in his mind but to exact revenge over his former beater.

Ruiz promised to best Bautista "in front of his countrymen" in the same way he did three years ago fighting in the undercard of the Ricky Hatton-Paulie Malignaggi bout.

Bautista (30W-2L-23KO's) however has fully recovered from a wrist injury that hounded him in their first meeting, a fact Ruiz (46W-10L-28KO's-2D) fails to take into account in his fight projection.

Bautista recently showed his tiptop form in a public sparring session last May 28 at ParkMall in Mandaue City, where fans got the chance to meet ALA Promotions fighters like WBO Minimumweight World Champion Donnie "Ahas" Nietes, WBC International Flyweight Champion Milan "El Metodico" Melindo and AJ "Bazooka" Banal to name a few.

PINOY PRIDE 6: GRUDGE REMATCH is presented by ALA Promotions and ABS-CBN Sports.
