CLOUDFONE is presenting the 2017 PBA All-Stars Obstacle Challenge competition at the Quezon Convention Center on Friday where Rain or Shine guard Maverick Ahanmisi seeks a title-repeat against a slew of tough challengers.

Ahanmisi looks to become the fourth player to defend the Obstacle Challenge crown after Rob Johnson, Willie Miller and Jonas Villanueva.

Challenging Ahanmisi are Alaska’s Simon Enciso, Blackwater’s Roi Sumang, GInebra’s Sol Mercado, GlobalPort’s Stanley Pringle, Mahindra’s LA Revilla, NLEX’s Eman Monfort, Meralco’s Ed Daquiaog, Phoenix’s RJ Jazul, Star’s Justin Melton and San Miguel’s Alex Cabagnot.

PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa said they’re happy to partner with Cloudfone in staging the event, one of the three regular skills contests in the PBA All-Star Spectacle.

Cloudfone is a mobile phone brand introduced in 2010 and has grown tremendously in volume and in value under the leadership of Cellprime chief executive officer Eric Yu.
