Trench Tech Purebred's A.J. “Mini Mouse” Aldan lost his boxing debut in Guam last weekend to up-and-comer Adrienne Francisco (6-0) via unanimous decision after three rounds.
'Mini Mouse' Aldan comes up short in boxing debut
The pinweight bout was featured as part of an event headlined as Boxing At The Beach held at The Beach Bar in Tumon.
Aldan, 17, attends Saipan Southern High School and loves mixed martial arts. He is right-handed and tips the scales at 115 lbs
He said his fight handle “Mini Mouse” was inspired by Ultimate Fighter Championship flyweight champ Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson.
Aldan took the fight under a week's notice and though boxing is not really his forte, was totally up for the challenge.
Aldan has been training at Trench Tech for about five months and won his first-ever organized form of combat, which was formatted as a K-1 kickboxing match, held as part of Trench Tech's Trench Warz 14: Fire Power over Ferrick Aguon back on Dec. 14, 2012.
However, last weekend, Aldan was pitted against a very talented 15-year-old in Francisco and was simply outclassed for three rounds.
Aldan acknowledged his opponent's experience after the fact, though he knew nothing about Francisco leading into the fight.
Though he was naturally disappointed in the loss, Aldan chalked it up as a learning experience .
As for now he does not know exactly when or what type of scrap he will partake in next, but stated no plans of giving up or slowing down.
“It is what it is.I want to thank my family, my coach Cuki Alvarez, and all of my friends for supporting me,” stated Aldan in an email on Tuesday.
In related news, Mylo “Bam-Bam” Lassiter (4-1) is featured as part of Pacific Xtreme Combat's PXC 36 MMA bi-main event when he takes on Spike 22 heavyweight Roque Martinez (5-4) for top contender spoils.
“[Mylo's] training has been going great. He's in shape and everything is ready, it's now just a matter of going over there and executing what we've been working on when the time comes to break off the chain,” said Lassiter's coach Cuki Alvarez over the phone yesterday.
Technically, Saipan's Kelvin “The Big Hit” Fitial of Marianas Elite was declared PXC's last official heavyweight champion when he outright defeated Martinez in June 2011 via technical knockout due to strikes. The bout was actually a rematch that occurred following a controversial draw between the pair in January 2011.
According to Fitial, his contract became void a year after his victory and has yet to be offered a title defense.
PXC never addressed the issue as to Fitial's standing with them, despite numerous email attempts when the story originally broke.
The latter feature of PXC 36's bi-main event features Trevon Jones (2-1) squaring off against Kyle Aguon (4-3) in a bantamweight clash where the winner moves up in line for a title shot against Crisanto “The Slugger” Pitpitunge (4-1).
