Team Lakay s Gina Iniong and Joshua Pacio: Two paths, one goal

Lakay. It is the Ilocano word for old man.   But when you go up to Baguio, it has an altogether different meaning. You cannot miss that word when you drive down Benguet road, on a nifty sign attached to a normal-looking office building: Team Lakay.   The home of the best Philippine mixed martial arts team in history. Almost all of the big names local fight fans have come to cheer and love as our modern-day heroes trace their roots to the relatively small, packed training room down Benguet road, where mats are soaked with the sweat of the fighters.   Eduard Folayang, Kevin Belingon, Geje Eustaquio, Honorio Banario, Rey Docyogen, Roldan Sangcha-an, and Mark Eddiva are all hallowed names in the annals of Philippine mixed martial arts, disciples of Mark “The Machine” Sangiao, who established, and groomed Team Lakay to the fearsome fighting factory that it is today.   While all the names above have ensconced themselves on pedestals, Team Lakay’s pipeline includes two more who have been fighting for recognition in recent fights: lone female fighter Gina Iniong, and ONE’s current Strawweight lynchpin and youngest champion, Joshua Pacio.   Both fighters may have started their professional fighting careers for different reasons, but Iniong and Pacio still have a lot to offer and prove for mixed martial arts in the country and in the international stage, such as being prominent fighters in the prestigious cage of ONE Championship.   CHANCE OF A LIFETIME   Gina, the first female Filipino mixed martial artist to fight and win abroad, started boxing back in high school as part of her after-school activities. When she was about to graduate, she actively sought scholarships in order to finish her education. One such opportunity presented itself in the form of an athletic scholarship, concentrating on the martial art of Wushu, which has a huge following in her hometown of Baguio City, with the University of the Cordilleras having a team of its own.   “Our former boxing coach, who was a former student of Coach Mark (Sangiao), approached me one day, telling me to join the upcoming wushu competition then for the college scholarship. So I joined it, and took a chance,” Iniong shared, recounting how she got into the world of combat sports as a young lady.   However, it was too good to be true, as she had to hurdle quite a huge problem if she wants that scholarship: a fight record. Sangiao told the young Iniong it would be difficult to get her a scholarship if she does not have a record to show in active combat in Wushu.   “I was lucky because there was a Wushu National Games here in Manila and we immediately went down and made our way there. Thankfully, I got the gold after the competition, and that paved the way for my scholarship,” said Iniong.   From there, the “Conviction” was born. After competing in numerous Wushu tournaments, Iniong finally caught the eye of Sangiao, who decided to take her under his wings and train her to be his female version inside the MMA cage.   After debuting in the Universal Reality Combat Championship in 2010, Iniong hasn’t looked back in the 12 bouts she has figured in, compiling a professional record of 8-4.  As the lone female representative of the most-successful mixed martial arts team in the Philippines, she has displayed that trademark fearsome striking prowess of fighters coming from the Lakay camp.   When asked about the fact that she is one of the only five Filipinas making the country proud inside the ONE cage, the 29-year old’s face lit up, in disbelief, in honor, in humility, for she cannot believe it herself.   “I’m very proud, and humbled, of the fact that I am the lone female fighter representing Team Lakay in ONE Championship. Many very skilled female fighters dream of being part of ONE Championship, and fight under Team Lakay, yet I am the one that Coach Mark has seen with the most potential to carry the flag inside the cage,” she said.   However, what drives Gina to fight, and it has been a well-known fact, is her mother, diagnosed with a stage 5 chronic kidney disease. In her fight against Jihin Radzuan last February, Iniong dedicated the fight to her mother, who to this day, is scared of seeing her daughter mix it up in the ring.   “To this day, she hasn’t watched me fight live, not even on TV because she is quite the nervous person, and she would only watch if she knew I won, during replays. She is very unlike my dad, who has fully supported my life as an athlete, after being a boxer himself in his younger days,” she shared.   CHALLENGE ACCEPTED   Joshua “The Passion” Pacio never intended to make mixed martial arts fighting a career growing up. The 23-year old fighter deemed it impossible back then, to reach a stage as huge as ONE Championship, due to the excellence of the fighters that he used to watch with his uncle through videos.   Add to the fact that Pacio was overweight. Obese, specifically. It made it all the more difficult for the kid to follow his dream and passion to be a fighter.   It all changed when his uncle started training him in Muay Thai, the art of the eight limbs that originated from Thailand, and considered one of the deadliest forms of combat striking. It started out as training just for fitness, but as if seeing a tiny ray of light in a dark tunnel, Pacio wanted more.   “At first, it was only for fitness, with my uncle training me, and watching videos of various MMA fights, which really inspired me to push myself harder. I really wanted to test myself, compete with the best, and it all seemed impossible when I was out of shape. My uncle really pushed me starting with Muay Thai. I started competing a few months after that, but I suffered defeat after defeat in amateur competitions. I questioned myself why I still trained afterwards. But at the same time, that’s when I realized that this is really my passion, that even if I lost my last fight,” shared the ONE Championship Strawweight king, who has not looked back since then.   “The goal for me has ever been to prove to myself that I have improved in skills, and be the best fighter I can be,” Pacio added.   He made his ONE debut three years ago, finally fulfilling his lifelong dream of professional mixed martial arts, facing a more experienced Filipino fighter in Robin Catalan at the age of 20, one of the youngest to enter ONE’s cage.   “Before I got to represent Team Lakay in ONE Championship, the roster spot was actually up for grabs. Fighters of the team figured in a Team Lakay Championship, a grand-prix style tournament within the team, for the ONE Championship contract. I fought twice victoriously in one night to get it. Two weeks later, with a ONE Championship event in Manila, that’s when I found out I am making my professional debut,” said an astounded Pacio.   Everything about the man they call “The Passion” has been hard earned. He finally tasted gold last 2018 when he decisioned the famed Yoshitaka Naito, a Japanese ground and wrestling master that forced Pacio to tap via a rear-naked choke when they first met. Facing, and losing to Naito, according to Pacio, was a revelation that he has to improve his overall skills, especially his ground game in order to play with the big boys of the cage.   Striking will definitely get you somewhere, as is with Pacio’s base as a martial artist, but one has to have more tricks up his sleeve when they aspire for the pinnacle of the competition. Joshua came back with a vengeance in 2018 to show “Nobita” that “The Passion” is no longer the young kid who will be submitted easily.   However, 2019 did not start of great for Pacio and Team Lakay, after he lost the belt in January to Naito’s contemporary in Yosuke “Tobizaru” Saruta in a questionable split decision. But that did not deter the young man, who has made it his personal goal to continue improving and treat each loss as a lesson, in ONE Championship’s “Roots of Honor” fight card, where he faced Saruta once more.   This time, in front of a racous Filipino crowd inside the Mall of Asia Arena, Pacio did not let the judges’ cards decide as he detonated a right knee to the side of Saruta’s head late in the fourth round to reclaim his throne. The dreaded Team Lakay striking power knocked the lights out from the Japanese fighter as Baguio’s young lion let out a furious roar to celebrate his redemption.   TWO PATHS, ONE GOAL   One did it for education, the other for health. Nowadays, however, MMA means more to Iniong and Pacio than just a stepping stone to something else. It is their passion, their advocacy, their bread and butter.   They continue to grind each day, waiting for another opportunity to show what they got and get the win, not just for personal glory, but also for the country and their family.   Inspired by her ailing mother, the “Conviction” promises to keep her current winning streak up despite being up against a formidable foe in her next match. After tasting defeat from Brazilian Istela Nunes, Iniong bounced back with a split decision over Radzuan last February to get herself back on track. Right now, Gina has one thing in mind with their goal: chase that ONE Women’s Atomweight division title, currently held by Angela Lee, and become the Philippines’ very first female ONE world champion.   However, Iniong acknowledges that the path towards the gold may not be easy, as she is currently eyeing a rematch with Japanese tormentor Mei Yamaguchi, the number one-ranked Atomweight fighter whom she has fought with twice, in order to settle who the rightful challenger to Lee’s belt is.   “Everyone has gotten belts. My big brothers in the team have tasted championship. I felt jealous because I do not have a belt, and lost my fight that would have given me a title shot. This time, I will make sure that I will do my best to secure a title fight,” rued Iniong in a previous interview with ONE Championship prior to fighting Radzuan.   While Iniong wants hit paydirt, it’s all about keeping the belt on his waist for Pacio, the reigning ONE Strawweight champion. His most probable foe is his nemesis Yoshitaka Naito who he does not have a problem with facing for the third time.   “I really want to prove I am the champion, and if it’s by facing him (Naito), so be it. I also want to prove that I have greatly improved as well from the last time we fought,” he shared.   While Iniong and Pacio await their next fighting assignment, their teammates are in the thick of training for the upcoming “Dawn of Heroes” megafight card happening on August 2 at the Mall of Asia Arena. It features Team Lakay members, led by Edward “Landslide” Folayang, Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio, and Danny “The King” Kingad, who will face the best of the world as represented by Eddie Alvarez, Reece McLaren, and Yuya Wakamatsu.   The entire country will be cheering on them as the whole world watches. And maybe somehow, somewhere there will be new blood encouraged and inspired by them to take on the challenge of continuing the legacy of the nation’s best fighting team alongside Iniong and Pacio.   After all, Sangiao did not establish Team Lakay just to be some Bagiuo-based fitness gym down Benguet road. He made Team Lakay to provide a home, a family, for young Filipinos who have the heart to fight for their dream, their family, and the country.     Watch “ONE: Dawn of Heroes” on August 2 at the Mall of Asia Arena, to be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A and S+A HD with livestreaming on iWant for all the Pinoy fight fans to see.

MPBL: Nimes, Teng and Manalang step upi to give Pasig big road win

The Pasig Sta. Lucia Realtors thwarted a determined Quezon City Capitals WEMSAP with a 91-82 victory in Wednesday night's main clash of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season. The crowd at the Jesus Christ Saves Global Outreach Seed Dome witnessed the Realtors obtain bragging rights over Corinthian Gardens in a game that saw great offensive performances, but was soured by an ill-tempered ending. The game was played in JCSGO instead of QC's usual home court, the Blue Eagle Gym. Pasig enjoyed big nights from three of their stars, with Robbie Manalang pumping in 22 points, Josan Nimes contributing 18 points and 6 assists, and Jeric Teng providing 17 markers as the club goes to 6-5. Black topscored for the Capitals with 21, followed by Santos with 16. Quezon City's record is now 6-4. "(We won because) we had a sense of urgency. It was the way we practiced after the loss (to Batangas last week). We put in the hard work," said Nimes.  Both offenses were in a rhythm in the first half as Pasig led QC 51-45 after 20 minutes. In the third the Capitals twice got to within two on a pair of Tweety Santos buckets but at the end of the period Pasig still had the advantage, 68-62. Santos and Mark Carongoy began the fourth with triples to tie the game but Teng answered with a triple of his own to spark a 15-3 run that put Sta. Lucia back in the driver's seat, 83-71. Tonino Gonzaga and Aaron Black put up some resistance to get to within 9, 87-78, but another Teng three-bomb in the last 3 minutes was the dagger to give the visitors an unassailable 90-78 lead. Teng was dribbling the ball out with mere seconds to go when QC's Joco Tayongtong rashly hacked at him. The former UST Growling Tiger took exception to the contact, and barked out at Tayongtong. Tayongtong was slapped a regular foul and both players, and members of the staffs of both teams were given offsetting technicals. Since Teng had fouled out, Pasig sent in Tristan Medina for the charities. After missing the first, QC player Jonathan Boholano appeared to chirp aggressively at the Pasig bench, drawing a technical and reigniting the hard feelings. Medina seemed to deliberately miss the next two free throws and Sta Lucia played no defense as QC scored an uncontested lay-up as time ran out. There were no handshakes between the two sets of players after. In the second match-up of the evening Makati Super Crunch stunned the Pampanga Giant Lanterns - ADG Group of Companies with a come-from-behind 96-94 win. The hero for Makati was Kib Montalbo, who produced two nearly-identical 17-foot jumpers, one to knot the game at 94-all with 27 seconds left and another to win it as time expired. The Giant Lanterns controlled the game for much of the second half and with four minutes left in the final quarter led 92-82 thanks to a Reil Cervantes triple and a split from the line from Mark Cruz. But triples from John Rey Villanueva and Josh Torralba, plus a lay-up from Joseph Sedurifa, helped Super Crunch claw to within two at 94-92, setting up Montalbo for his game-winning clutch baskets. The ex-Green Archer contributed only five points for Makati, but Josh Torralba hung up 27 points, a career record, to lead all scorers. Pampanga's John Maiquez led his club with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Pampanga coach Bong Ramos will rue the fact that his side had five players in double digits and still lost. Makati's slate is a gaudy 7-1 while Pampanga goes to 6-4. The match day opened with the Caloocan Supremos - Victory Liner coasting to a 90-75 victory against Paranaque Patriots - Yabo Sports. Almond Vosotros left spectators slack-jawed with a mammoth 35-point outing, shooting 12 for 16 from the field and 6 for 9 from three-point land. It's a new career-high for the former DLSU star. Incredibly he was also able to dish out 7 assists and 4 steals. Caloocan led by as much as 26 in the game and won all three quarters comfortably. Only late garbage time production from the Patriots kept the score respectable. Damian Lasco continued his fine form for Caloocan with 13 points. Yabo Sports did, however enjoy a breakout game from James Abugan, who came up with 23 points, more than quadruple his average for the season. The Supremos level their record at 5-5 while Paranaque go to 3-7......»»

MPBL: Chad Alonzo finds home with Imus, serves as mentor to younger bigs

Three years ago, Chad Alonzo wasn't even on a basketball team. The former Adamson Soaring Falcon forward was just coming off brief stints with ASEAN Basketball League team MX3 Kings Pilipinas and KIA in the PBA. Now, the grizzled 35-year-old veteran is one of the leaders of the Imus Khaleb Shawarma/GLC franchise in the on-going Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) Lakan Season. "Thankful lang din ako at tinayo ang liga na ito. Everybody, nagkakaroon pa ng chance talaga," said Alonzo, who returned to high-level basketball in 2017 when the MPBL inaugurated. "Yung for the love of the game, andoon eh. Age is just a number. Marami pang mas beterano nga sa atin eh. Pagdating sa MPBL, lahat nabigyan ng chance e. Yung mga bata naman, nakakapag-PBA. Maganda talaga yung programa." It turned out, Imus had always kept their eyes on the 6-foot-4 bruiser. And when the squad had the chance to secure his services, they did. "After ng Bacoor Strikers, free agent ako, and then sinabihan ako ng coaching staff ng Imus, and sabi nila, Chad, punta ka sa amin," shared Alonzo. Liking what they saw, Imus team manager Lou Abad presented Alonzo his new contract. It has not been an easy route so far for the Khaleb Shawarma/GLC crew, faltering in three of their first four outings. But being among the tested veterans on the line-up, Alonzo has been quite a presence in the locker room and in practice. "Medyo nakaka-adjust na lahat. Nagg-gel na yung team kaya unti-unti, maganda na yung tinatakbo kaya maganda rin yung outcome last game," he said. "Ang pagkakaiba dito sa Imus, talagang bago yung team. Lahat ng players bago, hindi kagaya sa mga previous team ko na talagang magkakasama na. Naging responsibility dito ng mga veterans ay tulungan yung mga teammates ko lalo na't mga bago pa sila." With eight years of PBA experience in the bag, Alonzo has served as a leader to younger front-liners like Gelo Vito and Jay-R Ng Sang, and he says he finds joy being that figure for them. "Dito sa MPBL, gusto ko matulungan lang yung ibang mga players. Yung mga gustong makapag-PBA. Mayroon kaming mga gustong magpa-draft," shared Alonzo. "So pwede kaming makatulong nina Jayjay Helterbrand." Not to be outdone, Alonzo even opened up about going toe-to-toe with the youngsters in practice, keeping up with them as he would receive compliments afterwards. "Sinasabi nila, Chad, para kang college lang ah. Paunahan eh, mabibilis, pero nakakasabay pa," recalled Alonzo. "Nakakatuwa talaga kasi karamihan, mga bata. Naishe-share ko sa kanila yung kung anong na-experience ko before sa PBA." Alonzo's last game with Imus was a testament to that, as he scored a double-double performance of 15 points and 12 rebounds in a decisive 82-70 win over the Soccksargen Marlins-Armor On. Such display that he could still be of significance to an MPBL club not only helped Imus, but inspired the rest of his teammates in general to develop winning attitude. "Yung mga bata, kailangan ipakita mo rin eh kasi ikaw yung veteran. Nakakatuwa naman sila kasi ginagaya nila and nagiging habit na nila sa practice. Lahat naman, sa sipag nadadaan eh. Nage-extra na sila after practice," he said. "Kung anong mga pwedeng maitulong sa kanila, ginagawa ko. Minsan nga, ganado pa sila mag-ensayo kasi nakikita nila na nakikipagsabayan ako sa kanila." Alonzo knows it will still be a long road for them in the Lakan Cup, but finding a niche is what's vital in keeping his career going, and perhaps lead him to another championship. "Kung papalarin talaga, sana makukuha rin ng title. Sana malayo ang marating ng Imus," he remarked. About Imus-Khaleb Shawarma/GLC Bandera: Imus-Khaleb Shawarma/GLC Bandera is one of the 10 pioneering teams of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League playing in the Southern Division of the league playing at the Imus City Sports Complex in Imus, Cavite, a third-class city in the Philippines. Khaleb Shawarma/GLC hold a 2-3 record in the Southern Division of the Lakan Cup and are undefeated at home. They will next play the Paranaque Patriots-F2 Logistics on July 30 at the Muntinlupa Sports Complex.  .....»»

Steph Curry makes faithful moves through production company

By Jonathan Landrum Jr., Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — Stephen Curry may be a sharpshooting three-time NBA champion, but he is quickly building a career away from the court to inspire the masses through his burgeoning production company. The Golden State Warriors superstar is strategically producing content that focuses on sports, family and faith through Unanimous Media, which he co-founded with Jeron Smith and Erick Peyton. The newly-formed production company already has several projects under its belt including a major studio film, network television show and a couple documentaries in just a year. Curry, 31, said he wants to “uplift people who need to be uplifted.” “We’ve been very selective about the things we want to bring to our audience,” he said. “In our first year, we really wanted to make people think, feel, laugh, cry and challenge them. When I’m out on the court, I’m all about inspiring people with my faith — win or lose. I try to do it with glory and with a smile on my face. We’re trying to take that same idea to our projects.” One of Curry’s latest projects features himself in his original docuseries “Stephen vs. The Game ” on Facebook Watch, a video-on-demand service. The six-episode series chronicles his journey through this past season, featuring behind-the-scenes footage of Curry’s intense training regiment, family life and old videos from his youth basketball career. He and his wife, Ayesha, open up about their first date, and the reasoning behind his ritual of writing the partial Bible verse “I can do all things” on his basketball shoes since his days at Davidson College. The Currys have three children. The upcoming season finale will focus on the Warriors’ injury-riddled playoff run that ended in the back-to-back champs losing the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors this month. “The finish this season was one of the most vulnerable ones,” he said. “Everybody wants the storybook ending where you have all these challenges and bumps in the road, but you end up at the finish line holding up the trophy, but it doesn’t always work out like that. But I learned a lot along the way, and I hope others can learn from watching my walk too.” Smith said it’s all a part of Curry’s plan to impact the world in a positive manner through media. “Everything is definitely by design,” said Smith, a former Nike brand manager and White House deputy of digital strategy during the Obama administration. He is the CEO, and Peyton serves as CCO for the production company. “The first thing executives at Sony told us was that this is a tough business,” he said. “But what has helped us be successful is that everything we’re doing is rooted in purpose. That purpose gives us a point of view as you’re moving forward, as opposed to how a traditional media company would do it.” The docuseries is among a slew of projects from Curry’s Unanimous Media, which is a play off him becoming the first unanimous MVP in NBA history in 2016. Last year, Unanimous Media struck a deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment to produce television and film projects. The production company will have its production headquarters on the Sony backlot in Culver City, California. So far, Curry has received executive producer credits with actress Viola Davis for the new documentary “Emanuel,” which explored life after a tragic South Carolina church shooting in 2015, and the inspirational film “Breakthrough,” a modestly budget faith-based movie that opened third at the box office earning $11.1 million in the first week. “It was powerful movie, but it wasn’t just about the money it made,” Curry said. “It was about the people who text, DM and texted me to get their take on life and faith. Those moments are special.” Unanimous is also behind a mini-golf competition show on ABC called “Holey Moley,” which drew 4.87 million viewers after it premiered June 20. The company is working on a docuseries about a storied high school basketball program in New Jersey called “Benedict Men,” which is expected to release when the streaming platform Quibi launches next year, and a documentary “JUMP SHOT,” which tells the story of Kenny Sailors, who developed the modern day jump shot in basketball. Curry is a part of a movement of NBA players who are creating production companies including LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Kobe Bryant won an Oscar for his animated short “Dear Basketball.” The Warriors point guard said he was inspired to move into the TV and film production space after seeing their success, but he wants to pave his own way with his own message. “Everybody needs examples,” Curry said. “But I’m going to do this my way. They’re doing amazing stuff. This space is big enough for everybody to win. In terms of our projects, we are going to stay true to ourselves. It’s all about changing people’s lives. I never want to get away from inspiring people.”.....»»
