Former Filipino Olympian Mark Barriga is slowly making his world title dreams a reality.

This after his coach Joven Jimenez announced that the mini-flyweight, who represented the Philippines in the 2012 London Olympics, will battle former mini flyweight champion Jose Argumedo as ordered by the IBF.

Jimenez said they are now finalizing the details of the fight including the date and the venue.

There are reports that it could take place in China or Mexico, but Barriga’s coach-manager said they might hold it in Manila.

A win against Argumendo will assure Barriga a shot against IBF mini flyweight champion Hiroto Kyoguchi of Japan.
