Mayor Maloney Samaco of Maasin City in Southern Leyte took pride on the recent boxing win of brothers Albert and Jason Pagara, young boxing champions in their city.

Samaco said “It surely is Pinoy Pride and our own Maasin Pride,” referring to the “magnificent win” of the Pagara brothers during the “Pinoy Pride 32: Duel in Dubai 2” at the Dubai World Trade Center, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on Saturday. Samaco then congratulated the two for making it on their reported first overseas fight. According to Samaco, they will host a “heroes welcome” for the two during its scheduled fiesta boxing event on August 16. The city’s fiesta day is on August 15. , Albert Pagara was named as one of the Outstanding Southern Leyteño due to his contribution in the sporting event in the province.

Albert’s elder brother Jason also won against Mexican boxer Ramiro Alcaraz by unanimous decision in their non-title bout.

Jason Pagara (36-2 record with 22 knockouts), the elder brother of Prince, also won via eighth-round technical decision over Mexican Ramiro Alcaraz after the heads of the two boxers clashed before the eighth round. The ringside physician ruled that the nasty cut Pagara suffered above his left eyelid would hamper his vision prompting the referee to stop the contest. Judges Robert Dale Bridges, Dan Nietes and Greg Ortega favored Pagara 77-73, 78-72 and 76-74 respectively.
