Ringside 01/09/2018

Ringstar Boxing, Asia’s fastest growing sports media property, headed by its Founder & CEO Scott Farrell, has just announced the first ‘Roar of Singapore’ series, which will take place at the Marina Bay Sands.

The event also heralds the first co-promotion between Ringstar and Marina Bay Sands.

‘Roar of Singapore V – The Kings of Lion City’, headlined by Singapore’s one-and-only undefeated boxer and current IBO Intercontinental Featherweight champion, Muhamad “The Chosen Wan” Ridhwan, (11-0), will go up against Paulus “The Rock” Ambunda of Namibia, former WBO World champion, and former 2x IBO World champion, for the much prized IBO World Super Bantamweight title.

According to Farrell, “As I said from my very first show, Marina Bay Sands is where Ringstar boxing will be. Now we are here, going live across the world from the Marina Bay Sands, on the 29th of September. This is a gigantic leap for ‘The Roar of Singapore’, and I am very thankful to Marina Bay Sands for co-promoting this upcoming event with us. This will guarantee a place in history for Singapore professional boxing, as a real contender for the number one boxing event in Asia, and perhaps the world.”

Farrell continues, “I have matched a strong fight card, headlined by Singapore’s boxing pride, Muhamad “The Chosen Wan” Ridhwan, who will now get to show the world what he’s made of, as he enters the ring, and goes toe-to-toe against a world class fighter in Paulus “The Rock” Ambunda, at the Marina Bay Sands, on September 29…A world class IBO world title fight, at a world class venue, that’s what Ringstar will deliver.”

Filipino world boxing champion Michael “Gloves on Fire” Dasmarinas, who conquered the IBO World Bantamweight title last April 2018, is also set to go against Ghana’s Manyo “Black Flash” Plange, who has a current record of 17-0.

While Malaysia’s very own IBO Oceania Welterweight champion Keng “The Mean Machine” Fai, and WBC Asia Continental Light Heavyweight Champion Mirage “Miracle” Khan, are both set to face their own serious contenders in French undefeated fighter Abdelelah Karroum (3-0), and former IBO Oceania Super Middleweight champion Jonathan Taylor, respectively.

There will be a total of 9 fights for ‘Roar of Singapore V – The Kings of Lion City’.
