Magali WBC bid withheld by GAB
by Harley F. Palangchao

Benguet-based Carlo Magali, the reigning Oriental and Pacific Boxing Federation super featherweight champion, is expecting to book a fight against World Boxing Council featherweight champion Miguel Berchelt in the future.

This is after the Games and Amusement Board denied the request of BricoSantig of Highland Boxing Gym for his ward, Magali, to challenge Berchelt for the undisputed WBC world super featherweight belt tentatively scheduled in Mexico on Feb. 10 due to rest period.

Under the GAB rule, the minimum rest period for any boxer will be 45 days after a fight.

Magali has a fight record of 23 wins, nine losses, and three draws while Berchelt has an impressive record of 32 wins and one loss.

It was only last Jan. 13 that Magali stopped Masatoshi Kotani of Japan via technical knockout in his first title defense for the OPBF super featherweight belt in Tokyo, Japan.

GAB informed Santig that Magali cannot challenge Berchelt on Feb. 10, as the Filipino boxer will be 17 days shorter of the minimum rest period of 45 days.

The regulatory board stated that Magali’s last fight was not considered an easy fight or suffered or absorbed light punishment.

Even GAB’s boxing and medical division has not recommended shortening Magali’s rest period since the boxer fought hard before clinching a TKO over his Japanese opponent.

But GAB Chair Abraham Mitra acknowledged the request of Santig for a title bout between Magali and Berchelt but on a later period.

Mitra vowed to process the application of Santig but the title bout has to be rescheduled for now.

Santig said he fully respects the decision of the GAB, saying that his ward does not want also to insist on something that violates the rules of GAB.

Magali has captured the OPBF belt by stopping previously unbeaten Sandeep Balhara via a 10th round technical knockout in July 2017 at the Mid Valley Exhibition Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Kotani, on the other hand, suffered his third defeat against 22 wins.
