Inspired Aston Palicte training for fight vs WBC World champ
Mighty Aston Palicte made waves last year with a successful US debut, he’s now back in the states getting a reader for a December showdown with a former champion. But as Steve Angeles tells us, this fight has plenty at stake.
The Roy Jones Jr promoted fighter from Cebu City has a record of 23-and-2.
Palicte will have perhaps his toughest test of his young career — taking on former WBC World Champion Jose Alfredo Rodriguez, with a record of 32 and 6.
While the 26-year-old hopes a win can bring him closer to a world title shot, he also has a new motivation: his wife gave birth to their first child last September.
