North American Boxing Federation super bantamweight champion Bernabe Concepcion’s planned May 17 fight in Aguascalientes, Mexico wont push through and instead he will see action on the “Lethal Combination” fight card headlined by Filipino ring idol Manny Pacquiao and WBC lightweight champion David Diaz at the Mandalay Bay Resort Hitel & Casino in Las Vegas on June 28.

Viva Sports/Manila Standard Today learned that Michael Koncz who is reportedly acting as an agent of Concepcion because of his close relationship with Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, informed Concepcion that he would not fight on May 17 and that Top Rank “will most likely put him on the undercard of the Pacquiao-Diaz fight.”

Concepcion told WBC ring physician Dr. Allan Recto that he was pleased at the decision since he “might get hurt on May 17 and may lose the opportunity of fighting in a better, bigger pay-per-view event.”

    Poor Concepcion. He is obviuosly the next star in Pinoy Boxing but Michael’s entry into the young boxer’s life will surely mess up everything. Don’t trust Koncz!!
