Prospect Adam Fiel headed to Mexico

After representing both Philippines and the United States in Olympic Trials, Adam Fiel and his team are again leaving their home turf in Vacaville, California, looking at Mexican rings as a viable way to fast track a promising career that currently reflects a 9-0-1 record (4 knockouts).

He headlines Tijuana’s “Revolucion” boxing card scheduled for November 11th in an 8-round fight.

“Revolucion” is promoted by Borizteca Boxing Promotions and will be held at the Salon Mezzanine in Tijuana, Baja California.

This will be his 6th fight in Mexican territory and the second this year after beating Alfredo Pitta at the same venue, back on February 26th.

After that fight, Fiel fought to a technical draw, after an accidental head butt that stopped the fight against Jesus Sandoval due to a cut on the Mexican fighter on September 30. After that fight, Fiel wanted to return to action immediately.
“The fight was at the USF War Memorial Gym in San Francisco, California. I was in total control of the fight and was getting close to a win by knockout. It was unfortunate that the fight was called on a cut that came from legal blows in the fight, and not because of a clash of heads,” said Fiel.
“All you can do as a fighter is go on and since I have kept in perfect shape, I opted for fighting as soon as possible after that fight,” added Fiel, who started his professional career trained by Nonito Nonaire Sr. Currently, he is under the guidance of Mateen Saifudeen Adam (formerly known as Steve Hernandez).

Donaire Senior has moved to Las Vegas to be with his son Nonito, once he regained the world championship.

Adam has said that he is comfortable with Mateen and understands why Nonito went to train his son.

In addition to Nonaire Sr, and Mateen, Adam’s father, Chris Fiel, -an engineer by trade- is also an important part of the team.
“Fighting before Mexican crowds has been stimulating to Adam and we are comfortable fighting anywhere but find fighting in Mexico very stimulating. The crowds there like aggressive fighters that put on a show. So far I have won the public in my presentations there. I thing the people of Tijuana will again welcome him as they did last time,” said Chris Fiel.
Regarding his “Filipino Fury” nickname, Adam has said that he would rather be called “The Force” as he was born in the United States and has a Mexican grandmother.
“The ‘Filipino’ tag is somewhat distorted. But most of my family is Filipino and that’s the fighting name that has stuck. I guess we will just have to go with it,” said Fiel.

The co-main event will pit two experienced warriors: Jorge “Panterita” Silva and Adriel Juzaino, scheduled for 8 rounds in the super welterweight division.
At the age of 24 and with a record of 21-12-2, Silva, born in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, has faced top opposition, including matches against well-known fighters such as Frankie Gomez, Joshua Clottey, Pablo Cesar Cano, Alfredo Angulo and Yoshihiro Kamegai.

Adriel “Zurdito” Juzaino, from Huatabampo, Sonora, Mexico is 28 and holds a record of 22-13-3.

Juzaino has matches against Ricardo Alvarez, “Canelo” Alvarez’ brother and a WBC Caribbean Boxing Federation (CABOFE) super featherweight title match against Gamaiel Diaz.

Several undefeated California fighters are making their return to the popular boxing Tijuana venue for scheduled 4-round bouts.

Robert Meza, an exciting featherweight from Temecula, California, will try to improve his 4-0 record going against Israel Pineda of Tijuana.

Edgar Valadez, from San Diego and a member of the Mando’s Boxing Gym, currently 2-0 will face Ramon Madero, from Camalu, Baja California.
