Boom Boom to fight on the Pacquiao – Dela Hoya undercard.

Manny Pacquiao and Gerry Peñalosa will not be the only Filipino boxers fighting on December 6 at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Golden Boy Promotions (GBP), confirmed that they are going to put up Rey "Boom Boom" Bautista on the undercard of the Pacquiao-Oscar de la Hoya welterweight clash.

GBP said they had confidence in Bautista but they made it clear that they "[are] not going after a world champion for Bautista's next fight but want to do a fight that is important to set him up for his next couple of fights before fighting for the title.

Bautista is fresh from the second round TKO victory over tough Mexican Eden Marquez on Saturday, August 30, in Cebu, He retained his World Boxing Organization International super bantamweight belt in Saturday's match.

Boom boom is one of the boxers that people like to see fight because you never know what’s going to happen. Anything can happen. He could get dropped but he could also knock anybody out. That makes him an exciting fighter.
