Former Olympian Charly Suarez springs back to action this weekend, Sept. 4, 2021, in an eight-round lightweight contest against Lorence Rosas at the Urdaneta Cultural Sports Complex in Urdaneta City.
The 33-year-old Suarez has been very busy in 2021 despite the Covid-19 situation. He has already fought three times in 2021, beating Dave Barlas and Pablito Canada by technical knockout, and Jon Jon Estrada by unanimous decision.
Rosas, in the meantime, is on a long layoff and has not fought since an eighth round stoppage in the hands of veteran Mark Anthony Geraldo. He’s also on a slump, losing his last four fights.
Suarez was supposed to fight Rosas back in April, but the fight was scrapped.
Suarez, who represented the Philippines in the 2016 Olympics, is 7-0 with five knockouts, while Rosas is 9-5-2 with three knockouts.
