Philippines, Mexico developing boxing rivalry
I don’t believe there is a big boxing rivalry between Mexico and the Philippines just yet. Our countries are coming along with some good fighters at different weight classes and with some many good boxers from both countries it could turn out into a big rivalry in the near future.
In both our countries boxing is very important and our fans give us a lot of support. Every time we get in the ring we both have all of our countryman supporting us and we want to give them the victory at all cost.
