World Boxing Federation (WBF) Asia Pacific Featherweight champion Jae Sung Song is ready to make the second defense of his title on February 11 in Taebaek, South Korea.
Sung Song, 4-0-1 (4), a 27-year-old puncher, will face fellow southpaw Delmar Pellio from the Philippines, who enters the fight at 9-2 (4).
The South Korean champion won the WBF title in June of last year, knocking out Kevin Aseniero in round five. In November he retained his crown with a third round stoppage of Bingcheng Zou.
For Dellio, nicknamed “Eye of the Tiger”, it will be his second straight title-opportunity. Last time out he lost a spirited effort in China for the IBF Asia Lightweight title, when local man Hong Quan Dinh defeated him by decision.
The fight will headline a show at Taebaek Gowon Stadium, promoted by Bumjin Promotion in association with Playground.
