3 Pinoys in Dubai card.

Another crop of promising fighters bring their act overseas as Genesis Servania and two other ALA Boxing stars take the spotlight when Pinoy Pride 27 happens on Aug. 29 in Dubai, UAE.

Servania, coming off a devastating stoppage win over Alexander 'Explosivo' Munoz of Venezuela, meets Jose 'Matador' Cabrera of Mexico in a bid to enhance his unbeaten record of 24-0 with ten KOs.

Cabrera will bring to the ring a respectable 22-4-2 slate with ten KOs.

Out to steal the thunder from the main event punchers is crowd-favorite Rey 'Boom Boom' Bautista, who faces Juan Jose Martinez, also of Mexico.

In another supporting tiff, King Arthur Vilanueva slugs it out with Henry Maldonado of Nicaragua.

ALA Boxing is joining hands with ABS-CBN in staging the huge show in the Middle East as it revs up for its initial promotion being targeted to take place in November in Los Angeles.

ALA Boxing head Michael Aldeguer hopes to present a major event there starring World Boxing Organization light-flyweight titlist Donnie Nietes.

The plan is to pit Nietes against a Mexican puncher to further heighten the intense rivalry of the Philippines and Mexico. - Nick Giongco
