First Posted 07:39:00 01/27/2011

CEBU fight fans at the Parkmall in Mandaue got a rare treat when Alejandro ?Zorrito? Barrera of Mexico and Indonesians Soffyan Effendi and Billy Sumba shadow boxed and hit the punch mitts to promote this Saturday?s Pinoy Pride 3: The Rematch.

Barrera, looking lean and sharp, again vowed to knock out Rey ?BoomBoom? Bautista when he spoke to the crowd through translator Michael Lopez.

?I trained hard, I feel good and ready to go,? Barrera said. He then posed for pictures with the fans and had another interview with a local television crew.

Effendi and Sumba also looked fit and ready to rumble with Edrin ?The Sting? Dapudong and Jason Pagara, respectively.

The event was opened by three-round sparring sessions involving amateur and professional ALA boxers, Elmo Traga vs Warren Mayorita, John Ivor vs Ryan Canillas, Arjan Canillas vs Marjohn Yap and Mark Bernaldez vs Genesis Servania. /Correspondent Rene Bonsubre Jr
