“Iba ang unang depensa ko po,” explained “El Metodico” in an interview with ABS-CBN News. “Iyong iba kasi, mandatory challenger lang, ako world champion agad ang kalaban ko.”

Budler won the lightly regarded IBO light flyweight title after beating Filipino Joey Canoy last February. He sports a 31-2 record, compared to Melindo’s 36-2 card.

“Hindi na iba sa kanya ang lumaban sa Pinoy. Matapang na boxer, masuntok, pasok ng pasok. Brawler din po siya,” Melindo said.
