Randy Scales New Heights with Altitude Services

Lining up against well-credentialed Thai champion Lookrak Kiatmungmee, WBA number two ranked contender Randy Petalcorin was facing his toughest opponent yet at Malvern Town Hall on March 28th.

Someone however forgot to tell Randy that!

In what could only be described as a second round demolition fest, the young Melbourne based Filipino fighter dismantled his highly fancied Thai opponent in a consummate and polished display of boxing’s “four P’s”; poise, precision and power punching.

Randy sets up yet another knock-out victory.

Whilst manager Peter Maniatis excepted even more from the young Filipino the supportive Melbourne crowd was most impressed with Randy “UltraTune’s” performance. “Leading into the fight Randy sparred with Australian welterweight champion Mark Qoun who told me; ‘Randy hits as hard as middleweight and has unbelievable skills and speed the likes of which I’ve never seen before in a boxer’. So I’ve told Randy we expect him not only to win a World title but also to be a pound for pound champion. The pass mark for Randy must be nothing less than excellence and we will keep pushing for that til we all end up in Las Vegas” commented Maniatis after the fight.

“Going into the fight I was confident. Moving to Melbourne gave me even more time to prepare away from the hustle and bustle of the Philippines. I miss my family and friends but I want to be the next Filipino World Champion and the training and support I get here in Melbourne is fantastic. It can be really hot and humid at home, but here I can train and spar more and have regular access to my altitude training facilities for training and recovery, which has had a huge impact on my fitness and performance over the last six months” recanted Randy.

 

 

 

On the way to his destiny.
