Ringstar Boxing will hold “Ridhwan Ambunda II-The Rematch” on March 29, 2019 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. On the card are five Filipino boxers led by International Boxing Organization World Bantamweight Champion Michael “Gloves on Fire” Dasmarinas, 26, of Pili, Camarines Sur, Philippines.

“Ridhwan Ambunda II-The Rematch” marks the fourth Ringstar Boxing bout of Dasmarinas, who holds a professional boxing record of 28 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw.
