MANILA, Philippines – Two Filipino fighters will see action in what should be an exciting fight night at Ringstar Boxing's "Roar of Singapore IV: Night of Champions" on April 20 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The "Night of Champions" will feature three main events, with unbeaten Singaporean boxer Muhamad "The Chosen Wan" Ridhwan (9-0) going up against 23-year-old Filipino boxer Jeson Umbal.

At stake in the Umbal-Ridhwan showdown is the vacant IBO international featherweight championship.

Another Filipino fighter, Michael Dasmariñas, will also see action in Singapore, as he faces off against French boxer Karim Guerfi in an IBO world championship event.

The final main event will witness Malaysia's Mirage Kahn against New Zealand's Chase "Hellboy" Haley, who will defend his IBO Oceania title. Also at stake is the vacant WBC Asia Continental light-heavyweight title.

"We are Asia's hottest sporting property, and we have raised the bar by having the first professional international boxing match at the Singapore Indoor Stadium – a premiere venue in Singapore," said Ringstar founder and CEO Scott Farrell.

Tickets go on sale on February 10, with prices for VVIP tables priced at SGD5,000, and with early bird rates at SGD4,000 up to March 20.

This includes a four-course dinner with free-flowing wine and beer, VVIP gift bag which includes Ringstar shirts, corporate branding on the table, half-page ad in the fight program, exclusive VIP entrance and red-carpet access and photo opportunities with top celebrities and world-renowned athletes.
