Malcolm "Eagle Eye" Tunacao of Mandaue City, Cebu, Philippines, was a several time national champion in the amateur ranks while he was still under the careful watch of the eminent ALA Boxing Club. Poverty, however, compelled the Cebuano southpaw, a father of three, to venture into the pro arena, hoping to earn considerable money to sustain the daily living of his family. On August 1, 1998, Tunacao officially turned pro along with current WBC ranked #5 and then Filipino super featherweight champion Randy Suico and OPBF welterweight king Rev Santillan. They were then monickered as "The Golden Boys of Cebu Boxing", whose prominence spread like whirlwind. Tunacao wrested the Filipino flyweight crown with a 12-round unanimous decision win over Rio Sumampong on September 25, 1998 in Talisay City.
