MANILA, Philippines — Bantamweight prospects Kenneth Elover and Benny Canetti headlined another slim-bang blow-by-blow event over the weekend in Mandaluyong City.

Llover (8-0, 5KOs) defeated Canete (7-1, 6KOs) on points to win the Philippine Boxing Federation title in front of a large crowd at the Barangay Mauway Executive Sports Complex.

The bout headlined a 14-fight card that marked the second blow-by-blow event Manny Pacquiao revived the show last November.

Blow by blow was originally started in the 1990s when a young Pacquiao fought several times.

“It’s great to see fighters from different stables competing against each other. It’s a sign of a healthy competition,” said Pacquiao, who made sure to catch the fights from his residence in General Santos City.

Pacquiao plans to hold an event once a month, hoping to find the next Filipino world champion.

“Boxing will always be close to my heart. I know that feeling when you’re just trying to make your way,” said Pacquiao, boxing’s only eight-division world champion.

“It brings back memories of when I was still fighting mostly in Mandaluyong when I was just starting out.”
