Allan Tanada (11-1-2, 5ko) of Ipil, Zamboanga, Philippines survived a tough test from Juan Ruiz (23-8, 7ko) of California.

The bout which took place on the Mandalay Bay event in Las Vegas last night was filled with Philippine boxers looking to make an impression in front of the huge fight crowd gathering in that city for tonight’s extravaganza between Pacquiao and Marquez.

Tanada started strong but was caught by a Ruiz combination of uppercuts and right hands often in the first few rounds , by the fourth, Tanada with an uppercut of his own staggered the veteran. Ruiz constantly pressured Tanada to the ropes and corner giving little regard that Tanada is trained by Pacquiao friend Buboy Fernandez.

The sixth and final round saw both fighters exchanging big hooks and uppercuts until the bell signaled the end. Judges scored the bout 58-56, 58-56 and 57 even for Tanada.
