Thailand-bound Pinoy boxer Melvin Jerusalem dedicates title fight to late father

WBC '9 and world Minimumweight title challenger Melvin Jerusalem leaves the country on Friday, January 20, along with coaches Edito Villamor and Michael Domingo.                                After months of training, Jerusalem feels confident going into the first title fight of his young career. Undefeated with eleven wins in as many fights the young Jerusalem is scheduled to take on  reigning WBC minimumweight world champion Wanheng Menayothin of Thailand. The defending champion also has an undefeated record of 44-0 and is now on his fifth title defense. Menayothin has held three other WBC titles since 2007.  Both Jerusalem and Menayothin have fought and won over Filipino champions Florante Condes and Jonathan Refugio. While the fight with Jerusalem could be just another one that Menayothin hopes to add to his spotless record, it’s a once in a lifetime chance a promising young fighter like Jerusalem, who's eager to make a name of his own. A win over an experienced veteran like Menayothin would open more opportunities  for the Filipino. Dedicating the most important fight of his career to his late father, Jerusalem promises to do his best and fight as long as he still can, saying “his support inspires me” and that he (Melvin’s father) “would have loved to see my first title fight for my first fight abroad”. Jerusalem added, “This is a lot of firsts for my career, and I wish he was around to see me. I guess this time he can watch me from heaven.”  The fight is set next Wednesday, January 25 in Phitsanulok, Thailand......»»

PSA to honor Diaz as 2016 Athlete of the Year

Behind her powerful arms and legs, a young petite lady gave Philippine sports a lift it badly needed in the year just passed. Weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz gave this country of 100 million people something to cheer about at the break of dawn one rainy day in August after copping an Olympic medal that was long overdue during the 2016 Rio De Janeiro Games. A combination of hard work, effort, heart, and sheer luck paved the way for the 25-year-old pride of Zamboanga City to run away with the silver in the women’s 53-kg weight division behind eventual winner Hsu Shu-Ching of Chinese Taipei. Diaz totaled a combined 200 kgs. in both the snatch and clean and jerk to the 212 of the Taiwanese bet. An Airwoman First Class at the Philippine Air Force, Diaz was only hoping for a bronze medal finish, but ended up a surprise runner up when fancied Li Yaiun of China – who earlier set an Olympic record in the snatch - failed to complete her final two attempts in the clean and jerk. “Sabi ko thank you Lord. Bronze lang ang hinihingi ko, pero silver ang ibinigay mo,” said Diaz moments after her triumph as the first-ever Filipina to win an Olympic medal. The Cinderella finish by Diaz was the first for the country in the last 20 years since boxer Mansueto ‘Onyok’ Velasco punched his way to a similar silver medal feat during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Hidilyn also became the first Filipino weightlifter to win an Olympic medal for the country and the only one to bag a silver outside of boxers Velasco and the late Anthony Villanueva (1964 Tokyo Games). In the light of her outstanding feats, the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) was one and unanimous in naming Diaz its 2016 Athlete of the Year during its traditional Awards Night presented by MILO and San Miguel on Feb. 13 at the LE PAVILION in Pasay City. Diaz is the first lady to be feted by the country’s oldest media organization with its highest individual honor after boxer Josie Gabuco and the Team Manila women’s softball team in 2012. “This one is a no-brainer. Hidilyn Diaz is truly the hands-down choice as the 2016 PSA Athlete of the Year,” said PSA president Riera Mallari, sports editor of The Standard. Last year, pro boxers Nonito Donaire Jr. and Donnie Nietes, along with young golfer Miguel Tabuena were the recipient of the coveted award annually handed out by the PSA, comprised by editors and sportswriters from the different broadsheets, tabloids, and online portals in the country. Diaz, who came home empty handed during both the 2008 (Beijing) and 2012 (London) Olympics, respectively, leads a long list of personalities and entities to be recognized during the formal rite co-presented by CIGNAL/HYPHER TV. In the coming days and weeks, recipients of the President’s Award, Lifetime Achievement honor, Executive of the Year, National Sports Association of the Year, Mr. Basketball, Mr. Golf, Mr. Football, and Ms. Volleyball will also be named as part of the two-hour program backed by Smart, Foton, Mighty Sports, Philippine Basketball Association, ACCEL, Gold Toe, SM Prime Holdings Inc., Globalport, Rain or Shine, ICTSI, and MVPSF. There will also be major awardees in different sports and citations to various personalities and entities in the annual rite backed by the Philippine Sports Commission, Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, and Federal Land. Not to be missed out is the PSA’s recognition to young promising achievers such as the Tony Siddayao Awards and the Milo Male and Female Junior Athletes of the Year, as well as posthumous awards to those dearly departed friends of the local sportswriting community.   .....»»

MVPs Oraeme and Mbala headline Collegiate Mythical Five

A pair of De La Salle University stars and three of the NCAA’s best players comprise the Mighty Sports Collegiate Mythical Five that will be feted on January 26 in the Collegiate Basketball Awards at the Montgomery Place Social Hall in E. Rodriguez Ave., Quezon City. The duo of Ben Mbala and Jeron Teng, who joined hands in leading the Green Archers to the UAAP championship last month, lead this year’s batch alongside Mapua Institute of Technology’s Allwell Oraeme, San Beda College’s Javee Mocon, and Arellano University’s Jiovani Jalalon. They earned a place in the best five selected by the UAAP-NCAA Press Corps and backed by Mighty Sports for their outstanding performances during the collegiate season.  Their inclusion in the Mythical Five also makes them as candidates for the Smart Player of the Year, one of the major awards in the event backed by Smart, Accel, Mighty Sports, MJM Productions, and Chooks to Go.  Mbala was named UAAP Most Valuable Player while Teng took the Finals MVP plum as the Green Archers won their ninth championship in near-perfect fashion, winning 16 of 17 games including a sweep of the archrival Ateneo de Manila University in the Finals. Meanwhile, Oraeme bagged his second straight NCAA MVP plum after carrying the Cardinals back to the Final Four. Mocon was one of the vital figures of the Red Lions’ successful championship run in the NCAA, sweeping Jalalon and the Chiefs in the finals held last October. Jalalon, now a PBA rookie, showed why he was one of the country’s top amateur cagers after carrying the Chiefs to their second Finals appearance in three seasons. Meanwhile, Aldin Ayo and Jamike Jarin were named Coach of the Year for leading DLSU and San Beda, respectively, to the championship of their own leagues. .....»»

San Beda's Jarin and DLSU's Ayo are Coaches of the Year

Champion coaches Aldin Ayo and Jamike Jarin are among the top achievers that will be feted on January 26 when the UAAP-NCAA Press Corps holds its annual Collegiate Basketball Awards at the Montgomery Place Social Hall in E. Rodriguez Ave., Quezon City. The two bench tacticians will receive the Coach of the Year award in the event backed by Smart, Accel, Mighty Sports, and MJM Productions for guiding their respective teams to the championship in the country’s two major varsity leagues. Ayo revived the winning tradition of the De La Salle University Green Archers who captured the UAAP title at the expense of archrival Ateneo de Manila University. This, one year after also steering his alma mater Colegio de San Juan de Letran back to the top of the NCAA. Jarin got his redemption from losing to Ayo and the Knights in 2015 by leading the San Beda College Red Lions to their ninth championship in 11 seasons after sweeping Arellano University in the title series. Ayo is the first coach in the history of the awards night to win the Coach of the Year award in both leagues, while Jarin is receiving the prestigious honor before he makes his coaching debut for National University in the UAAP next season.
