Filipino undefeated world-title prospect Mark Magsayo flew to Los Angeles to resume training with Freddie Roach at Wild Card Gym.

Magsayo and his wife first flew to Incheon, South Korea, before heading to Los Angeles, according to a report by RingTV.

The promising featherweight fighter went through strict health protocols before being allowed to leave the Philippines.

“I am so very grateful that I am going back to training with coach Freddie, because I enjoy training with him and I am learning a lot every time,” Magsayo said.

As a courtesy to Roach and other Wild Card members, Magsayo and his wife will undergo COVID-19 testing.

Magsayo, who is expected to fight either September or October, first trained with Roach in January.
