WW title Calvo vs Kadestam
WW title Calvo vs Kadestam

PXC 44 takes place June 27th, 2014 at the University of Guam Field House on Guam. Showcased will be two of the best strikers in the Welterweight division as Guam’s own Josh ‘Killa’ Calvo battles Sweden’s Zebaztian ‘The Bandit’ Kadestam for the PXC Welterweight Title.

Krazy Bee’s Yusuke Yachi welcomes Ryan Mulvhill to the ‘Terror Dome’ in one of the most anticipated bouts of the night. Rising prospect Yachi faltered on his first PXC appearance, but came back with two displays of marked improvement. Sikjitsu’s Ryan Mulvihill has won most of his matches by submission, so he’ll bring a strong grappling game to Yachi.

A Philippine versus Saipan clash is set between Josh ‘Chaos’ Duenas and Crisanto ‘The Slugger’ Pitpitunge. Duenas has done well in Trench Wars but has been unsuccessful in his PXC bids, and former Champ Pitpitunge is on a two-fight losing skid. This is do or die for both men.

Troy “The Hunter” Bantiag will make his first fight outside the Philippines when he battles former Bantamweight contender Kyle Aguon. Both fighters are eager to get back into the win column, as both of them are coming off disappointing losses in their last outing.

Also previously announced will be Frank Camacho taking on Chuji Kato. Camacho just made a stunning return against Keita K-Taro Nakamura, and while Kato doesn’t have K-Taro’s grappling pedigree, he does ride back to back wins in PXC.

For the women’s bout just announced, DEEP Jewels prospect Tomo Maesawa will face the recently turned pro Cortney Casey.
