ONE: Danny Kingad decisions Ma Hao Bin in Macau

Team Lakay flyweight contender Danny Kingad showcased his superior striking and much improved grappling skills as he grinded out a tough unanimous decision victory over Chinese contender Ma “The Southern Eagle” Hao Bin at ONE: Pinnacle of Power, Saturday evening at the Studio City Events Center in Macau. Kingad opened the bout with a thunderous body kick that reverberated throughout the stadium. It didn’t take long for Ma to go to his bread and butter, as the Chinese grappler shot in for a takedown and successfully got Kingad on the mat moments after. Throughout the bout, Kingad dictated the pace in the striking department, punishing Ma with kicks to the leg and kicks to the body. Ma found some success with his takedowns, but wasn’t able to threaten Kingad from the bottom. In the final frame, the two flyweight contenders went back and forth, trading submission attempts, with Kingad closing out the bout with a kneebar attempt. After three rounds, the Baguio City native did enough to earn the unanimous decision nod from all three judges. #ONEFightNight Danny Kingad does it!

Delarmino advances to AIMAG muay thai gold medal match

ASHGABAT, Turkmenistan – Filipino Muay Thai fighter Phillip Delarmino advanced to the finals after he scored a 30-27 win over Rusdem Bayramdurdyyew of Turkmenistan in their -57kg semifinals match in the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG) Wednesday in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. Delarmino, a silver medalist in the Asian Beach Games in 2014 and second placer during the 2013 Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar, was the more dominant fighter in the rings, throwing a deluge of punches and kicks that overwhelmed his Turkman opponent and the highly partisan crowd at the Martial Arts Arena here. The 26-year-old Delarmino from Iloilo City won in all three rounds, which secured him a spot in the finals against Thailand's Chotichanin Kokkrachai, who entered the championship match by scoring a similar 30-27 victory over Almaz Sarsembekov of Kazakhstan. The gold medal game is scheduled Thursday evening at the Muay Thai Arena. “Nahirapan din ako sa kalaban ko, pero effective naman yung game plan namin ni coach (Billy Alumno),” said Delarmino “Napag-aralan namin (Turmen) dahil sa last two fights ko ganun lang plano ko… clear na kunin namin every round. Mahirap kasi kung dumikit ang laban tapos ang kalaban host country pa,” Delarmino added. Delarmino said they have studied the moved of his Thai, and hopes that their strategy would be effective for him to finally secure a gold medal in the sport that Thailand invented. “Nakita na namin mga laban nya (Kokkrachai), meron kaming gameplan para sa kanya. Kaya naman, Sana makuha natin yung gold sa finals,” said Delarmino, who reached the quarterfinals in last August’s Muay World Games in Poland. The Philippines is running 13th overall with a medal count of 2 gold, 5 silver and 6 bronze medals. The fighters from taekwondo and belt wrestling settled for a bronze each after Francis Aaron Agojo lost to Jang Jun of South Korea (34-9) in the -58kg semifinals, while Jefferson Manatad fell to Kazakhstan’s Aldos Kulmanbetov (5-0) in the -80kg Classic Style final four. Kurash grappler Al Rolan Llamas also settled for a bronze medal after losing in the semifinals against Erkin Omurzakow of Turkmenistan, 10-0, in the men’s -60kg weight class. Wrestlers Noemi Tener (women’s classic style -60kg), Grace Loberanes (-50kg), Michael Vijay Cater (men’s classic style -55kg), Christof Hofmann Jr. (-90kg) and Jonathan Maquilan (-65kg) didn’t make it to the medal rounds. Dessa Delos Santos wound up fifth in the women’s weightlifting following a combined lift of 184kg in the women’s 58kg division. Luo Xiaomin of China (222kg) won the gold medal followed by second-placer Muattar Nabieva of Uzbekistan (212kg) and bronze performer Acchedya Jagaddhita of Indonesia (204kg). .....»»

PBA: Marqus Blakely finally practices with TNT

In order to save its season, TNT has turned to an old rival for help. The KaTropa, down 2-4 in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup, have signed their third import this conference. That import is former longtime Purefoods reinforcement Marqus Blakely. In multiple stints with the Purefoods franchise, Blakely won Best Import and two PBA championships. The two titles came during San Mig Coffee's magical Grand Slam run in 2014. Now, two years after his disappointing exit with the Hotshots, Blakely is back in the PBA, serving as TNT's third import in the Governors' Cup. Blakely, who has PBA career averages of 22.6 points and 14.9 rebounds, practiced with the team Tuesday. He will debut for the KaTropa on Sept. 22 against Rain or Shine in Passi City, Iloilo. After a respectable bounce back season last year where they made three semifinals and one Finals, the KaTropa have struggled in 2018. On top of their 2-4 start in the Governors' Cup, TNT has never made it past the first round in the playoffs, losing to San Miguel Beer in the quarterfinals of both the Philippine Cup and Commissioner's Cup.
