Former amateur standout Charly Suarez, fresh from a rousing victory, resurfaces in Vietnam on 10 December.
In an effort to expedite his entry into the world rankings, Suarez’s team is moving heaven and earth to stay active.
Last week, Suarez, now 34, easily outpointed Carlo Magali to raise his pro record to 13-0 with seven knockouts.
Fighting as a super-featherweight, Suarez won three gold medals in the Southeast Asian Games and a silver in the 2014 Incheon Asian Games.
During his storied amateur days, Suarez fought all over the world and faced some of today’s biggest stars, including Vasyl Lomachenko and Oscar Valdez.
Delfin Boholst, who was with Suarez in the national team, feels his longtime pal is ripe for the big time and that it’s just a matter of time before he hits paydirt.
The Vietnam fight will be held at Ho Tram, a gambling haven located two hours and 30 minutes from bustling Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon).
