New IPL PRO MEN’S ATHLETIC CHAMPION, Zyrian Zee Apurillo!
Zyrian Zee was out for redemption at the 2017 2nd Annual IPL Arizona Championship on May 28th in Mesa, AZ.
Apurillo competed at last year’s IPL Arizona Championship, where he placed 2nd in Men’s Athletic Open, missing 1st by one single point. In 1st was Pat Vega, who also won his IPL Men’s Athletic Pro Card at this show.
Zyrian then reappeared on the IPL stage at the 2016 Southwest Grand Prix, where he placed 1st in Men’s Athletic Open, winning his IPL Pro Card.
In May 2017, Zyrian would return to the IPL stage for the third time. And as, fate would have it, Zyrian would be facing Pat Vega, for the second time. Adding to the excitement was the fact that this rematch would be occurring on the IPL PRO STAGE.
Both men brought their A-game and traded blow for blow. Here is how the rounds went.
