Roldan Aldea was named by the Games and Amusement Board as the Boxer of the Month for February.
In a copy of GAB's official monthly ratings obtained by PNA on Tuesday night, the 24-year-old pug from Kabankalan, Negros Occidental, was given the monthly citation following his successful Philippine lightweight title conquest on Feb. 11 in Paranaque.
Aldea knocked out Nathan Bolcio for the vacant belt in the main event of a fight card organized by Elorde International Promotions and Misako Promotions at the Elorde Sports Center in Paranaque.
Aldea, who now boasts a 12-1-4 win-draw-loss record, will defend his newly-won belt against the top-ranked Philippine lightweight contender Jonel Alibio.
However, Aldea will move up a weight level for the meantime as he travels to Yokohama to face unbeaten super lightweight boxer Shawn Oda on April 15 as part of a fight card that will feature two world title fights.*PNA
