LT’s Handig in Mexico for elimination fight
Jimmy Laking

La Trinidad-based Mateo Handig will take on highly-regarded Ganigan “El Zurdo” Lopez on June 29 in Mexico City in a 12-round elimination fight that will determine who fill fight next for the International Boxing Federation minimum weight world title.

The current IBF minimum weight world champion is Katsunari Takayama of Osaka, Japan whom Handig defeated by split decision in October 2012 in La Trinidad, Benguet.

Handig sports a 13-5-0 (win-loss-draw) record to Lopez’s 22-5-0 but has been in deep training to offset for the rust. He is also currently listed No. 1 in the IBF ratings.

The Mexican lost to Manila’s Denver Cuello in May last year in Mexico but has bounced back with two straight wins to line himself for the elimination fight.

Brico Santig, manager of the Highland Boxing promotions said the fight contracts with Mexican matchmaker Eddy Reynoso have also already been signed.

Handig will be accompanied to Mexico by Santig and Batangas’ boxing promoter Cayetano Gandeza, Jr.

Trainer Joven Jorda said his ward has been training hard for this important match. A victory by Handig will line him for a rematch with Katsunari who is out to make up for his loss to the former.
