Genesis Servania on Pinoy Pride XXIV: The Future is NowAla Boxers will once again showcase the future of Philippine boxing as they battle in the ring via “Pinoy Pride XXIV: The Future is Now” to be held at Solaire Resorts and Casino on Saturday (March 1) at 6pm.
The main card will feature Genesis Servania (23-0) as he looks to extend his winning streak against former World Boxing Association (WBA) super flyweight champion Alexander “El Explosivo” Munoz (36-5, 28 KO). Servania will not only battle against age and experience, but will face a knockout (KO) master who has KO’d 28 opponents in 36 wins.
Servania has been honing his craft since his teenage years and has found success in the sport, winning all his bouts since entering the world of boxing.
“I was pushed by my father to get into boxing.” said Servania in an interview. “My siblings were already into boxing, even my sister. He pushed me to hopefully help in the household and to stay away from vices.”
The 22-year-old Pinoy will be coming off a second-round knockout win against Panama’s Rafael Concepcion. Servania will move a step further in his career as he looks to prove his prowess in boxing against a seasoned veteran in Munoz.
“We’ve been watching tapes of our opponents and have been training non-stop,” said Servania when asked if he and his fellow ALA Boxers are ready for their respective bouts. “We’re ready for them.”
