The feud started when Geisler and Matos had a physical altercation during a fund-raising event for political prisoner Maricon ‘Eedom’ Montajes at a bar in Quezon City. Weeks prior to the fight, the two engaged in a lot of physical and verbal exchange.
The Geisler-Matos fight is a benefit event organized to raise the Php 2.1 million bail money needed for “Taysan 3”, a group consisting of Montajes, a UP film student, and two others, Rommiel Cañete and Ronilo Baes, a farmer.
With no clear winner this time, will there be a Baron Geisler vs Kiko Matos 2?
