PXC 46 takes place on November 15, 2014 in Manila, Philippines. The promotion’s return to the country is stacked with a title double header for the Flyweight and Lightweight divisions.
The event will be streamed on delay through Livesport here starting at 7:30om PST.
The Lightweight Championship takes the main stage as Glen Ranillo and Chuji Kato square off. Ranillo is riding a 3-fight win streak as one of PXC’s homegrown contenders. Kato jumped the Shooto ship to PXC and has been undefeated in his two fights with the promotion.
The Flyweight Championship will be contested for between Ernesto Montilla Jr and Alvin Cacdac. Monilla earned his shot at the belt with back to back rapid fire finishes of Jenel Lausa and former Flyweight Champ Ale Cali; Cacdac, the Dragon House Flyweight Champ, was given the opportunity because of a 3-1 record in PXC.
Another exciting flyweight fight is lined up between former Bantamweight Champ Crisanto Pitpitunge and Rambaa Somdet. With their respective ring names “The Slugger” and “M16″, it’s obvious that tis will be a stand up blitzkrieg. This fight has future title challenger ramifications.
In the women’s division of PXC, prodigy Gina Iniong meets amateur Tuff-N-Uff Flyweight Champion Cortney Casey in a combustible combination and should see them both ascend international rankings.
