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......»»

ONE champ Angela Lee to defend title against Huang in Thailand

CHRIS LINES, AP Sports Writer   BANGKOK (AP) — Hawaiian Angela Lee will defend her women's atomweight title against Taiwan's Jenny Huang when ONE Championship hosts its second mixed martial arts promotion in Thailand on March 11. The 20-year-old Canadian-born Lee improved her perfect career record to six wins when she won the title in a unanimous decision against Mei Yamaguchi in May last year. The fight in Bangkok will be her first defense. 'I had back to back fights leading up to the title fight, and after I won the belt I took some time off,' Lee said. 'The goal for 2017 is to be an active champion and to stay busy. 'Since my last fight, I've been training extremely hard, improving my skill set and I can't wait to show everyone.' Huang also has a perfect record, winning her fifth fight against April Osenio by submission last month. Five years older than Lee, Huang was later to start her MMA career than her upcoming opponent. 'I have been working so hard to come to this point in my career, and now that I'm finally here it all feels very surreal to me,' Huang said. 'Inside the cage I only have one goal and that's to win this bout at any cost. She better be prepared for what I bring to the table because I will go to battle with my full arsenal.' The event in Bangkok will be ONE's second promotion in Thailand after the inaugural event in May last year. ONE has an expanded schedule this year, including five fight nights in China and a first in Vietnam. The first event of the year will be in Jakarta this month. Marcin Prachnio has withdrawn from the middleweight title fight against Vitaly Bigdash due to injury and will be replaced by Aung La N Sang of Myanmar. Russia's Bigdash will be making the first defense of the title he won back in 2015. .....»»
