It’s been two years since Mark Magnifico Magsayo’s last fight in the Philippines. This was on November 24, 2017 when he confronted veteran Japanese boxer Shota Hayashi in Tagbilaran Bohol.
Our country men, Magnifico Magsayo has been able to defeat the tough Japanese boxer via unanimous decision to defend his WBO International Featherweight Title. But after nearly half a year of inactivity, a shocking news broke. The undefeated featherweight prospect decides to leave! the ALA Boxing where he began his career as a professional boxer.
In June last year, Magsayo said he would move to another promotional company. Because according to him, his previous contract was expired in July 2017 with his former management. And even though the promotion said that Mark still had an existing contract with them, they didn’t even have a contract to show, which made Mark to sure he still had. As a result, the inactivity of the Bohol fighter continued. And that led to his world ratings dropping.
It is only until April 12 2019 that Magnifico returns to the spotlight again. His come back fight was held in Singapore against Indonesian Erick deztroyer in an 8 schedule featherweight non-title bout. Even though it’s been almost two years since his not been in the ring, you will never see weakens performance of Magsayo in the ring. In fact, in the fourth round the Indonesian falls.
Mark Magnifico Magsayo’s record of 18 wins 13 has ended unbeaten via knockout. This coming August 31, 2019 will be next scheduled fight of a 24 year old Boholano professional boxer.
His opponent was a former World Champion Panya Uthok or better known as Pungluang Sor Singyu Onesong prepared to fight for the IBF Pan Pacific and WBC Asian Boxing Council Featherweight titles. This championship will be held in Tagbilaran city.

Panya has defeated 19 Filipinos, according to his professional previous bouts. His last win was a 6 rounds unanimous Victory against 24 years old and former OPBF super featherweight champion Carlo Magali.
Although he has been dominated most of Filipino brave boxers. It doesn’t mean that Panya Uthok is unbeatable for our respective Filipinos. Because of his six lows, two of them are came from our countrymen, Czar Amonsot and Marlon Tapales.
In 2016 Marlon Tapales made Sor Singyu upset in Thailand. Although our compatriots twice fell in the 5th round, he recovered a knockdown in the next round and in the 11th round Marlon ended Sor Singyu via a knockout victory.
