Outstanding prospect Tomjune Mangubat is primed to give a career best performance on March 12th , when he headlines in Paranaque, Manila at “TIGER 2022”. Mangubat will be fighting for the WBA Asia bragging rights, and the opposition surely doesn’t get any bigger than boxing royalty himself, the “King’s Warror” Charly Suarez. The Cebu based boxer known as “War Dog” heads to Manila armed with not only an intimidating career resume, but a purple patch of recent and devastating victories.

Tomjune Mangubat grew up in the mountains of Bukidnon, Mindanao - a place that has proven to be an assembly line for producing top fighters. Mangubat was top echelon from the start, winning local and national titles before turning pro at the age of 18. And it was no surprise that he would transition seamlessly to the pro ranks. This kid was big and rangy, had plenty of grit, and was rapidly refining his amateur skills to become a hurtful puncher. War Dog quickly earned a reputation as both technical and dangerous, winning 9 of his first 10 fights with thunderous knockouts. The signs were there from the start that the Omega Boxing Gym prodigy was something special. Significantly, he has showed the ominous signs of bigger things to come, and with every match, he has shown constant improvements in all facets of his performance.

Late in 2019, we were given a valuable insight into the mettle of the rapidly improving Mangubat when he suffered a split decision loss to Korea’s #1 fighter Jong Seon Kang.

The match was quality from the opening bell, underscored by a massive work rate and constant power punching by both fighters. Whilst many consider that Mangubat was “very unlucky” not to get the decision, it is worth noting that his Korean opponent was the very same that recently knocked out top class pinoy Pete Apolinar. War Dog was most definitely the dominant fighter in this epic clash, but rather than dwell on the unfortunate scoring, he has simply gone from strength to strength!

Tomjune Mangubat shapes as another significant road block to Charly Suarez’s world title aspirations. His four wins in 2021 foreshadow the destructive form that he will bring to Manila this March. All four were top opponents, yet all received one sided beat downs - three resulting in brutal knockouts. Only the rugged Ernie Sanchez survived on his feet, but it is fair to say that he was comprehensively bashed in an unanimous win for the War Dog.

Mangubat’s most recent performance, significantly, was also his best thus far. The match was held in October last year, against the highly promising and unbeaten Allan Villanueva. This was a keenly anticipated clash in Cebu, as Villanueva had rightful claims to victory, sporting 11 and 0 (8 KO) credentials. But Mangubat was just brutal from the start, mixing technical prowess with hard core physicality. The Bukidnon boy controlled range from the opening bell, setting the tempo going forward, and also on the back foot. He really befuddled Villanueva with wis variety of high and low punches, but it was his quality body punching that really dismantled his opponent, and the match finished with another clinical stoppage for the War Dog.

In what is without doubt the biggest local derby match of the year, you have the Philippines’ best boxer Charly Suarez, taking on perhaps the Philippines’ most dangerous , young and improving fighter in Tomjune Mangubat.
