Prior to arriving in Australia, Petalcorin had been in training camp with Manny Pacquiao in General Santos at Pacquiao’s gym MP Towers.

Petalcorin will do battle with Thailand’s Samransak Singmanasak (35-20-1, 27 Kos) over 12 rounds in a defence of his PABA light flyweight title.

In the main supporting bout, Oscar Ledlin (7-0, 1 KOs) will challenge Ben Capps (7-1-1, 2 KOs) for the vacant WBC Asia Council Continental light middleweight title over 10 rounds.
