Huge odds for Magali

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet — Carlo Magali attempts to mess up the grand plans of Rio Olympics veteran Charly Suarez in his bid to win the World Boxing Association Asia super-featherweight title on 23 October at the Flash Gradballroom of the Elorde Sports Complex.

The Bohol-born Magali, who has been based here, enters the ring armed with a 25-13-3 win-loss-draw record with 13 knockouts.

Magali swears he holds a big edge in experience but that alone won’t be enough to beat Suarez, who has an undefeated record of 12 wins, including seven knockouts.

“But Suarez is also good so I have to be prepared,” Magali said.

A former Orient-Pacific Boxing Federation champion, Magali, 35, became a headliner many years ago when he fought in Australia.

Magali scored a 12th-round knockout of Davey Browne Jr. with 30 seconds remaining before the end of the fight.

Browne would spend a few days in hospital while in coma before dying owing to massive head injuries.

Suarez is handled by his former teammate in the national team, Delfin Boholst.
