Elorde Thailand-bound: Negotiates For WBC #6 Trongco’s Int’l Flyweight Title Defense


Promoter Gabriel “Bebot” Elorde Jr. will negotiate for the proposed unification fight between his reigning WBC International flyweight champion Renan “Little Pacquiao” Trongco (16-4, 9 KOs) and Thailand’s veteran Silver champion Noknoi Sitthiprasert (52-4, 30 KOs).

Elorde is Thailand-bound tomorrow for a five-day business trip and to celebrate his birthday in Bangkok on Feb. 10.

“We want Noknoi (Sitthiprasert), the silver champion in WBC International,” Elorde told AsianFightScene.com few minutes ago in Manila, Philippines. “This fight will determine who really the best International champion in 112 pounds division.”



Elorde is no problem to send his lefty champion to Thailand. He expects the fight in the next couple of months.

“It doesn’t matter (where ever the fight takes place). We can fight Noknoi even in his own backyard,” said Elorde.

The eldest son of the late Gabriel “Flash” Elorde, one of the greatest junior lightweight champions in history, will meet WBC International secretary Edward Thangarajah to talk about the looming “dream fight”.

Currently, the 28-year-old Sitthiprasert is ranked No. 5 in the division, higher by a notch to Trongco.

WBC International championship chairman Mauro Betti of Italy gives a green light to the title fight.

Sitthiprasert won the vacant title via a unanimous decision win over Japan’s Kenichi Horikawa in February 2013 in Thailand and defended the title once, against previously unbeaten Renoel Pael with controversial split decision a year later.

Trongco, a one-time WBC Youth Intercontinental light flyweight champion, captured the International flyweight title with unanimous decision win over Chinese Wang Xin Hua in September 2013 and defended it over Japan’s Hayato Yamaguchi with majority decision year later.
