DUBAI: Glen Tapia, American professional boxer in the middleweight division, said he may be having a match in Dubai around next month or early next year.

“We are going to build something here in Dubai,” said Tapia in an exclusive interview with The Filipino Times.

Tapia, who has been Sen. Manny Pacquiao’s sparring partner, said the boxing champ “wants to sign me to a fight.”

No opponent nor venue has been finalized as of press time, he said.

“We were friends. We knew each other for a long time. We sparred in 2010. It all comes aroind. He (Pacquiao) wants to see me fight,” said Tapia,

Without elaborating, Tapia, who has recently been off the limelight said he “went at a little downfall.”

“And I can come back. I feel I can do it and he believes in me. I was going through a lot. I was young and was having a lot of pressure in me,” he said.

Tapia said he “lost everything.”

“I just want to show people that if you work hard, you can come back. Just have to be strong enough,” he said.

Tapia won his pro debut against Edward Smith on December 13, 2008. He scored a six-round decision win against Eberto Medina on March 26, 2011.

He was recently in Dubai during which he met up with Pacquiao, who at the time played a basketball tourney organized by the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League in coordination with DJMC Events.
