Southpaw Alvin Lagumbay of Bukidnon arrived again in Bermuda, for a rematch with tormentor Nikki Bascome on May 27th at The Shed Dockyard.
Lagumbay is accompanied by his promoter Vilma Acosta of Hardstone Monis Promotions, trainer Romart Monis and super middleweight Ronniel Tabayag, who will also fight against undefeated Andre Lambe of Bermuda.
The 28-year-old Lagumbay earlier lost by a unanimous decision to Bascome on June 29th, 2019 in Bermuda.
“Now we are sweating inside the house because it's raining. We are skipping rope and shadowboxing only,” said Lagumbay.
Lagumbay is now 147lbs already and only eats bread and fruits and drinks coffee.
“I’m under already,” said the 5-foot-9 Lagumbay.
He recently scored a technical knockout in the 1st round against Kelvin Tenorio in San Fernando City.
But after a one-year hiatus in 2021 due to a pandemic, Lagumbay had two bouts in 2022.
He first won by TKO over Atilla Layabasi of Germany in the 2nd round in Dubai.
But in the second bout, Lagumbay lost by a TKO in the 2nd round to Andy Hiraoka of Japan for the WBO Asia Pacific Super Lightweight Title in Korakuen Hall.
Lagumbay presently has a record of 14 wins with 12 knockouts against 6 losses and 1 draw.
Bascome, on the other hand, has 11 wins with 2 knockouts and 1 loss.
