·2 min read

CHARLY Suarez is back in action today, Dec. 4, 2021, as he takes on undefeated youngster Delmar Pellio in the main event of Ultimate Knockout Challenge at The Flash Grand Ballroom of the Elorde Sports Complex in Parañaque City.

The ex-Olympian is looking to continue his hot streak in the pro ranks by winning his fifth straight fight in 2021. The 33-year-old 2016 Rio Olympian made his pro debut back in 2019 and has proven that he belongs with the elite in super featherweight division.

Pellio is going into this fight coming off a long hiatus. The 21-year-old last stepped foot on the ring in 2019 and knocked out Ronel Sungquit in the fifth round.

Suarez is 8-0 with six knockouts, while Pellio is 9-0 with four knockouts.

On the other hand, promising Igorot prospect Carl Jammes Martin (17-0, 15 KOs) faces his toughest opponent to date in veteran Mark Anthony Geraldo (38-9-3, 19 KOs) in a Philippine super bantamweight fight.

The 22-year-old Martin is being groomed to become a future Filipino star. But he has to get past Geraldo if he wants to rise up the ranks.

Geraldo is a legitimate threat to Martin. He is the only fighter to beat current International Boxing Federation (IBF) super flyweight champion Jerwin Ancajas. He has also fought the likes of Nordine Oubaali, McJoeArroyo and Oleydong Sithsamerchai.

In the meantime, Dasmarinas (30-3-1, 20 KOs) is up against fellow former world title challenger Ernesto Saulong (22-7-2, 9 KOs) in one of the featured fights in the undercard.

Also in the undercard, Jon Jon Estrada (13-8-1, 12 KOs) trades leathers with Jestine Tesoro (5-2, 2 KOs), Roy Sumugat (12-11-1, 6 KOs) is fighting Juanito Paredes (8-7-1, 3 KOs), Ranelio Quizo (8-2, 1 KO) locks horns with Marvilo Aballe (8-1-2, 3 KOs), Lorenz Ladrada (10-2-1, 3 KOs) exchanges blows with Jason Buenaobra (7-5-3, 3 KOs), Virgel Vitor (15-2, 9 KOs) takes on Lorence Rosas (9-6-2, 3 KOs), Jules Victoriano (9-4, 6 KOs) squares off Jethro Pabustan (30-8-6, 9 KOs), Jimmy Borbon (7-9-4, 4 KOs) trades leathers with Leonardo Donorio (17-18-3, 11 KOs), Al Toyogon (10-6-1, 6 KOs) faces off with Lloyd Jardeliza (8-11-4, 6 KOs), Jufel Salin (3-3, 3 KOs) is up against Kresler Tenorio (3-4, 1 KO), and Jonniel Laurente (2-0, 1 KO) slugs it out with Marlon Bacalando (0-3-3).
