Taduran braces for IBF title crack

Fresh from securing a title try at the International Boxing Federation mini-flyweight crown, Pedro Taduran will report back for gym training very soon as he ramps up his chances of dethroning Japanese Ginjiro Shigfeoka.

Just before the end of 2023, Taduran, who briefly held the same title Shigeoka now holds, overwhelmed compatriot Jake Amparo in their title elimination showdown in Tagbilaran.

Banking on his incredible stamina, Taduran charged his way to a unanimous decision to get a shot at Shigeoka.

Based on the timetable of Sean Gibbons of MP Promotions, Taduran should find himself in the ring with the rugged Japanese puncher in June or July.

The victory over Amparo raised Taduran’s record to 16-4-1 with 12 knockouts.

Shigeoka, who holds stoppage wins over two boxers who Taduran found hard to beat — Mexican Daniel Valladares and Filipino Rene Mark Cuarto — has a 10-0-1 (no contest) mark with eight knockouts.

Still, Taduran swears his non-stop assault will be crucial in winning against Shigeoka, who is also a lefty.

“Conditioning is the key and that’s something I don’t compromise with,” he said in Tagalog.
