    Cuarto stakes IBF belt against Taduran in all-Filipino title rematch

    Feb 6, 2022
    Rene Mark Cuarto and Pedro Taduran clash anew.

    ONE year after, Pedro Taduran gets a shot at reclaiming his world crown.

    Taduran challenges tormentor and reigning champion Rene Mark Cuarto in a rematch for the IBF world mini-flyweight championship on Sunday at the Digos City gymnasium in Davao.

    In the latest all-Filipino showdown for a world title, the 25-year-old Taduran will seek to regain the 105-pound belt which he lost to Cuarto last year in General Santos City.

    Cuarto, 25, won the 12-round bout by unanimous decision, all by the score of 115-113, despite a late charge made by Taduran, whose camp believed they should have won the fight.

    Taduran now gets a chance to avenge the loss in Cuarto’s first title defense.
