Top lightweight prospect Delmar Pellio is ready to return to the ring on Saturday April 23 when he ventures to Vietnam. The match against Dinh Hong Quan (7 - 1)
will be held at the Ho Tram Casino, which sits directly in front of the beach, maybe 150km south of HCMC.
Pellio has shown huge potential in his career thus far, and despite being unbeaten in 9 fights, he struggled to get regular and meaningful opponents. He faced a considerable rise in grade last December when he faced the world class Charly Suarez, yet produced an outstanding and courageous effort that won the hearts of fans. The King's Warrior Suarez was quick to praise his young opponent, and enthused that he had a good future in the sport. Similarly, those that have sparred with the southpaw Pellio have found his workrate, timing, strength and boxing brain very hard to beat.
There is no doubt the bout with Suarez was a great learning curve for Delmar Pellio, and he will need all of that knowledge when he takes on Vietnam warrior Dinh Hong Quan.
