Heavy-handed “Mighty” Aston Palicte, 25, is carrying on the proud Filipino boxing tradition established years ago, later brought to the United States by living legend Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire.
A member of the Philippine National Boxing Team, Palicte represented his country all over the world as an amateur. He made his pro debut August 23, 2010, stopping Jomar Yema in the first round, and Aston went on to win his next nine fights. In his first title fight, Palicte lost for the first time to Romnick Magos, retiring after four rounds despite dropping Magos in the opening round of their 2012 vacant WBO Asia Pacific Youth flyweight title fight. Palicte rebounded with five straight wins – all by stoppage – to set the stage for his 2015 IBF Youth super flyweight championship match for the vacant title versus Detnarong Omkrathok, who Aston put to sleep in the opening round.
Later that same year, Palicte added the WBO Oriental super flyweight title to his accomplishments, dropping Vergilio Silvano (20-5-1) in the second and fifth rounds on his way to a one-sided 12-round unanimous decision (118-108, 116-110, 116-110). Palcite fought outside of the Phillipines for the second time, lost a controversial 10-round split decision (93-97, 94-97, 97-94) to Junior Granados (14-1-1) in Mexico. Palcite won a rematch with Silvano, who was floored in the fifth and seventh rounds, in which Palcite won by 7th-round knockout for the vacant IBF Pan Pacific super flyweight title.

John "The Phenom" Vera
Undefeated world middleweight challenger John “The Phenom” Vera may be one of the best kept secrets in boxing, however, he is expected to breakout on the national and international scenes in 2017.
The heavy-handed southpaw with the punishing right hook had a relatively modest amateur career, finishing with a 39-7 record that included gold-medal performances in the National Black Gloves and twice in Texas Regional Golden Gloves competition. His style, though, is obviously much more suitable and effective in the professional ranks than amateurs.
Vera made his pro debut January 28, 2012, stopping Cedric Sheppard in the second round, at home in Fort Worth. His first pro fight outside of Texas, where 11 if his 15 fights have been held, was a 2014 second-round technical knockout of Anthony Woods in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Vera’s first real notable victory was last February, in which he knocked out Avi Bruce (23-12) in the fourth round of Vera’s first scheduled 10-round bout. In two fights that aired on national television from Las Vegas, Vera registered sensational knockouts of Joey Ruelas (10-1-1) this past May for the vacant NABA USA title, and Milorad Zizic (12-1) this past September in his first title defense. In his most recent fight, Vera made another successful NABA title defense, taking a 10-round split decision from former European champion Salim Larbi (20-6-2) in Phoenix.
Vera’s marquee good-looks and devastating punching power make him a natural fan-friendly, television fighter.

Emmanuel "Renegade" Robles
Former WBC Latino junior welterweight champion Emmanuel “Renegade” Nobles has displayed world-class talent during his six-year professional career, highlighted by his 2014 decision over celebrated Cuban boxer Yordenis Ugas, who was the 2005 World amateur champion and 2008 Olympic bronze medalist.
Robles has an abbreviated amateur career (38-6), fighting out of San Diego, but he clearly demonstrated his potential by capturing a gold medal at the 2008 National PAL Championships.
In 2010, the gifted southpaw make his successful professional debut, taking a four-round unanimous decision from Luis Sandoval. He went unbeaten through his first 16 fights, including a four-round majority draw with fellow undefeated Adrian Vargas (7-0) in Chula Vista, California.

Last September in Las Vegas, Robles lost a hard fought 10-round split decision to Steve Claggett (23-4-1) for the vacant WBA NABA USA junior welterweight title. In his most recent fight January 20, 2017, Robles lost an eight-round unanimous decision to undefeated Kenneth Sims, Jr. (11-0) in a ShoBox fight at Atlantic City that was much closer than the final judges’ scoring indicated (79-72, 79-72, 78-73).
Robles is an incredibly well conditioned athlete having earned an Associate’s Degree in Sports Nutrition.

Undefeated welterweight prospect Flavio Rodriguez may be the next best-kept secret in boxing. The powerful Mexican-American isn’t a shredded-looking fighter, far from that, but he has dynamite in both hands and he remains one dangerous hombre.
An accomplished amateur who had an 88-14 record and three national titles, Rodriguez turned pro March 25, 2010, stopping Najee Hayes in the third round. Surprisingly, though, Rodriguez left boxing for the next five years when he became disenchanted with boxing.
After ballooning to more than 200 pounds, Rodriguez came back September 18, 2015 in Mexico, where he won a four-round decision over Julio Change in a junior middleweight fight.
Rodriguez fought once more in 2015, stopping Clint Coronel (4-3-2) in the second round of their welterweight match, followed by three more fights last year, in which he knocked out Mario Angeles and Yesmani Pedroso, both in the second round, and last December in Las Vegas he defeated previously unbeaten Dilan Loza (5-0), who retired after round three.
Rodriguez may not be close to retiring but, when he hangs up his gloves for good, he plans to be an investor and possibly own a gym and manage boxers.
