JAYAR Inson looks to end a two-fight slump as he takes on veteran Jose Ocampo on Feb. 27, 2021 at the Bula Gym in General Santos City, Soccsksargen.

The 30-year-old Inson lost his last two fights, both in undercard of Manny Pacquiao’s fights in 2019.

Inson lost by split decision to Jonathan Steele on Jan. 19, 2019 in the undercard of the Pacquiao vs. Adrien Broner show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. He was stopped by Sergey Lipinets in the second round six months later in the Pacquiao vs. Keith Thurman event also in Las Vegas.

Inson is a former World Boxing Organization (WBO) Asia-Pacific welterweight and interim WBO Oriental lightweight champion.

Ocampo, on the other hand, is also in dire need of a win. He has dropped his last four contests and hasn’t won a fight since a unanimous decision win over Pablo Martin Barboza on Oct. 8, 2016 in Moscow.

The 31-year-old Ocampo’s last fight was a third round knockout loss in the hands of Jhunrick Carcedo in Gen. Santos City on Dec. 2, 2019.

Ocampo is a former WBO Oriental lightweight and interim WBO Asia-Pacific super featherweight champion. He won over Weng Haya and Thai Ekawat Narin.

Inson is 18-3 with 12 knockouts, while Ocampo is 20-13-1 with 13 knockouts.

The Inson vs. Ocampo fight is in the undercard of the International Boxing Federation (IBF) minimumweight champion Pedro Taduran’s (14-2-1, 11 KOs) title defense against mandatory challenger Rene Mark Cuarto (18-2-2, 11 KOs).

Also scheduled on the card is a fight between Genisis Libranza (19-1, 11 KOs) and Mark John Apolinario (20-14-3, 5 KOs). (EKA)
