Magsayo retains WBO Int l Featherweight title

TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol --- A world title fight could be in the horizon for undefeated Mark 'Magnifico' Magsayo. The hometown hero did not disappoint in his homecoming in this beautiful province in the Visayas as he successfully defended his WBO International Featherweight belt against Japanese challenger Shota Hayashi in a unanimous decision win Saturday in the sold out Bohol Wisdom Gymnasium here. Magsayo got an identical 116-112 scores from the three judges to wrap up the successful staging of Pinoy Pride 43 'The Battle in Bohol'. "Nahirapan din ako kasi di ko talaga in-expect ang tibay niya saka malakas talaga," said Magsayo, who battled a very game and tough Japanese veteran. "Matibay siya sa bodega saka sa mukha kaya medyo nahirapan ako."  The 22-year old Magsayo spoiled the birthday wish of Hayashi, who turned 30 Friday, with his 18th straight win in his return to this province famous for its majestic Chocolate Hills since his seventh win back in 2014. With an impressive 18-0 (13 KOs) record and a good performance in his fight, Magsayo could be heading into a world title bout against WBO Featherweight champ Oscar Valdez or a eliminator on March 2018. Hayashi dropped to 30-7-1 win-loss-draw record. Meanwhile, 'Prince' Albert Pagara knocked out Mohammed Kambuluta of Tanzania with 2:26 in the second round. Pagara floored Kambuluta early in the second round before finishing off the Tanzanian with a right straight for his 20th KO win in 28 victories against a lone loss. Kambuluta dropped to 17-4 win-loss card. Jeo 'Santino' Santisima pummeled Indonesian Ki Chang Kim to submission just 36 seconds into the opening round to score a magnificent knockout win in their junior featherweight bout. Santisima caught Kim with two body shots that dropped the Indonesian, who never recovered from the Pinoy's devastating body blows. Santisima improved his record to 15 wins, 14 from KOs, with two losses. Kim absorbed his fifth loss against eight wins and a draw. In other undercard results, Christian Bacolod opened the night with a sensational second round TKO win over Ryan Makiputin. Bacolod floored Makiputin twice in the second round before finishing off the fight with a barrage of combinations as the referee stepped in to stop the fight, 2:50 in the round. Roli Gasca made quick work of Boholano Jason Tinampay, knocking out the home crowd bet with a thunderous right uppercut to the jaw with 1:15 in the opening round.  Rocky Fuentes edged Ryan Tampus via unanimous decision (59-55, 60-54, 59-55) while Esneth Domingo dominated the score cards, 39-36, 40-36, 40-35, for a UD win over Lowell Saguisa. Melvin Jerusalem outpointed Jestoni Racoma in a unanimous decision win, 80-72, 80-72, 78-74. Another local bet in Virgel Vitor went home  victorious after getting the identical 97-93 scores from the judges against John Ray Logatiman in their Junior Featherweight bout.   Complete Pinoy Pride 43 Results Mark 'Magnifico' Magsayo def.

ONE: Folayang needs to ‘keep winning’ as he eyes another title shot

Eduard Folayang once ruled ONE Championship's lightweight division for nearly a year until one pinpoint strike from Martin Nguyen ended that 364-day reign in 2017. Less than a year has passed since Folayang relinquished the belt to Nguyen, who is the current featherweight champion, but the old lion once again attempts to sit on the throne he once sat on. Folayang has since won his comeback fight back in May of 2018 against Kharun Atlangeriev, and he hopes that another win could catapult him to the title picture. Team Lakay's 34-year-old senior member will go up against undefeated Russian Aziz Pahrudinov, five years his junior, on July 27 and Folayang knows a win will help hi...Keep on reading: ONE: Folayang needs to ‘keep winning’ as he eyes another title shot.....»»

ONE: Kevin Belingon targeting history against Martin Nguyen as well

If making history as the first three-division world champion in mixed martial arts is what Martin Nguyen is after in his highly-anticipated encounter against Kevin Belingon, the Filipino spitfire could likewise establish a new record for the Philippines in ONE Championship should he win over his Vietnamese-Australian foe. Both men are slated to face each other in the main event of ONE: REIGN OF KINGS, which takes place at the 20,000-seater SM Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines on July 27. ONE Championship has raised the stakes of the scheduled five-round clash between Belingon and Nguyen as the ONE Interim Bantamweight World Championship will be up for grabs. If Belingon succeeds in securing the gold-plated strap at the expense of Nguyen, the Philippines will set a record of most championship wins in the seven-year history of the promotion. “The main goal for Filipino martial arts athletes like me is to bring pride, honor and glory to our country. This match against Marin Nguyen on July 27 is another opportunity to hoist the Philippine flag aloft on the world stage of this beautiful sport,” he said. To date, there have been four Filipino world champions under the ONE Championship banner since 2013. Honorio Banario became the first Philippine-rooted competitor to notch a huge prize in ONE Championship when he defeated compatriot Eric Kelly by fourth-round stoppage for the inaugural ONE Featherweight World Championship in February 2013. It was followed by Brandon Vera, who crowned himself as the first ONE Heavyweight World Champion by knocking out Paul Cheng in 26 seconds with a high kick in December 2015. Meanwhile, Eduard Folayang pulled off a major upset victory over Japanese legend Shinya Aoki in November 2016 to capture the ONE Lightweight World Championship. Geje Eustaquio joined the list of Filipino world titleholders this past January, claiming the ONE Interim Flyweight World Championship with a split decision win over Kairat Akhmetov in a rematch before becoming the undisputed division kingpin in his second meeting with Adriano Moraes last June. With the ONE Interim Bantamweight World Title on the line, having his hand raised would symbolize so much to Belingon. Ever since losing to Bibiano Fernandes for the bantamweight crown in January 2016, Belingon has won five consecutive matches, routing the best contenders that the division has to offer. For Belingon, he could finally become a mixed martial arts world champion on July 27, which is the goal that he has been chasing ever since he launched his career in June 2007. “Becoming the champion has been my goal since my career started. It is a lifelong dream for me. I need to win my next bout to turn my dream into a reality,” he stated. “This is going to be a very exciting match. To take on an elite athlete like Martin, it will only be good for my experience. I look forward to testing my skills against him,” Belingon added. Sharing the cage with a dynamic knockout artist like Nguyen, Belingon asserted that he likes his chances versus the two-division world champion and shared his thoughts as to how things would play out at ONE: REIGN OF KINGS. “Martin has very good, high-level skills. His wrestling is very strong, and so is his boxing. He is aggressive, and he punches with power. There is no underestimating this guy,” he explained. “But I think his biggest weakness is his speed, especially in this fight. He is not faster than me. I think this will come down to who gets there first.” Although he is known for his explosive striking, massive knockout power, and fearlessness to engage, Belingon assured that he is prepared to go the distance with Nguyen. “I am training very hard to make sure I am well-equipped with everything I need to face any situation. If I have the opportunity to finish him, I will not hesitate to grab that chance. But I am prepared for this fight to go full five rounds as well,” he concluded......»»

"It won't last 12 rounds," said Tepora in Filipino Wednesday while working out at a makeshift gym at Le Meridien Hotel. His trainer and older brother Jing-jing hinted that the knockout could come in the middle rounds, five to seven to be specific.

Boxing: Jeff Horn wants Terence Crawford rematch in Australia

After getting stopped in the ninth round by Terence Crawford in their WBO Welterweight World Championship bout, former titleholder Jeff Horn wants a rematch in his home country of Australia.  Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, former junior featherweight ruler Crawford made his welterweight debut and dominated Horn en route to a ninth round TKO to capture the WBO title. The win was Crawford's 33rd in as many fights and it made him a three division world champion.  For Horn, it was his first loss in 20 professional bouts.  After all the dust has settled, the Australian former champion wants another crack at 'Bud'. During the post-fight presser, Horn expressed his desire for a rematch, and given that he's a former champion, he believes he deserves one.  "I definitely think I can win a rematch if we have a rematch, and surely I should be allowed one, because I was the champion.” Horn said.  Horn's camp echoed the 30-year old Brisbane native's sentiments, saying that they would like to have a rematch Down Under.  "I would dearly, dearly love for Jeff Horn to fight Terence Crawford in Australia, and if we get that opportunity, I’m very confident we can turn the tables." said Glenn Rushton, Horn's trainer and manager, via BoxingScene.com's Keith Idec.  Horn's first nineteen bouts were held in Australia, where he amassed a 18-0-1 record, including a WBO title clinching win over Filipino eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao and a title defense against Gary Corcoran. Speaking of Horn's breakout fight against Pacquiao, promoter Dean Lonergan believes that if a Pacquiao-Horn bout proved to be successful in terms of crowd turnout in Australia, the same could be said for a possible Crawford-Horn rematch.  “Put it this way, if we can put on a Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn fight, we can put on a Terence Crawford-Jeff Horn fight down in Australia." said Lonergan.  “With the amount of branding we’ve built around Terence Crawford and Jeff Horn, I think it would be very easy to put a rematch together." he added.  According to the New Zealand-based promoter, Crawford is interested in fighting in front of an Aussie crowd, as long as the money was enticing enough.  How would Jeff Horn fare in a rematch in Australia? .....»»

ONE Championship: Kevin Belingon vs. Martin Nguyen for interim bantamweight title set for Manila in July

ONE Championship’s July card in Manila will be getting a big-time main event, as Team Lakay knockout artist and top bantamweight contender Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon will be taking on reigning ONE Championship Featherweight and Flyweight World Champion Martin ‘The Situ-Asian’ Nguyen for the Interim ONE Championship Bantamweight World Champion. ONE Championship CEO and Chairman Chatri Sityodtong made the announcement on his Facebook page, Thursday afternoon.  Currently riding a five-fight winning streak, Baguio City’s Belingon (18-5) is considered by many as the number one contender to the ONE Championship Bantamweight World Title, currently held by Brazilian submission specialist Bibiano Fernandes. After losing to Fernandes back in 2016, Belingon clawed his way back into the title picture by going on an impressive winning run including dominant stoppage wins over Toni Tauru and former title contenders Reece McLaren and Andrew Leone. A win over Nguyen will finally give Belingon the ONE title that he’s longed for, as well as securing his spot once again as the next to challenge Fernandes, ONE Championship’s longest-reigning world champion. (READ ALSO: With title shot in mind, Kevin Belingon says Martin Nguyen can wait.) Following a successful defense of his featherweight crown against Christian Lee, the 11-2 Nguyen drops back down to bantamweight and will try to get another chance at becoming a three-division world champion. After capturing the featherweight and lightweight belts back in 2017, Nguyen kicked off 2018 with a title shot against Fernandes in Bangkok, Thailand. While Nguyen pushed the champion to the limit, at the end of five rounds, Fernandes once again reigned supreme as he defended his bantamweight title for a record seventh straight time. Roughly two months removed from his last bout, Nguyen jumps back straight into the title picture to challenge Belingon for the number one contender spot. The Belingon-Nguyen blockbuster bantamweight title bout will serve as the headliner for ONE Championship’s third of four trips to Manila in 2018. As announced by Sityodtong, the card will also feature MMA legends Renzo Gracie and Yuki Kondo in a retirement match, as well as former champion Shinya Aoki taking on Thai star Shannon Wiratchai.  Former ONE Championship Lightweight world champion and Filipino MMA star Eduard Folayang has also been announced for the card.  ONE Championship: Reign of Kings will Friday, July 27th at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City......»»

ONE: Eustaquio-Moraes title bout moved to Macau, China

After initially being set for Beijing, it has been confirmed that ONE Championship's Pinnacle of Power card will be taking place in Macau instead.  The June 23 card is ONE's third trip to the so-called 'Las Vegas of Asia' and will feature two ONE Championship world title bouts.  Main eventing the card will be China's own ONE Strawweight World Champion Xiong Jing Nan defending her title for the first time against Argentinian Laura Balin, while co-main eventing the card will be Team Lakay star and Interim ONE Championship Flyweight World Champion Geje Eustaquio of the Philippines looking to unify the title against reigning ONE Championship Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes.  Eustaquio and Moraes first crossed paths inside a ONE Championship cage back in 2014, with Moraes submitting Eustaquio to claim the vacant ONE Championship Flyweight world title.  Also on the card will be Eustaquio's Team Lakay teammates, featherweight contender Edward Kelly as well as former title contender Danny Kingad.  Team Lakay has been part of ONE Championship's Macau cards since their first trip in 2016, which saw Eduard Folayang, Honorio Banario, and Joshua Pacio all pick up impressive victories.  A year later, Pacio returned to Macau but came up short against Japanese grappling ace Hayato Suzuki.  Macau also played witness to the coming out party of ONE Women's Atomweight contender Jomary Torres, as she shocked the world with a submission win over rising star Rika Ishige.  Macau has also been very good to reigning champion Moraes, who defeated Tilek Batyrov in 2015 to become interim champion, and then defeated Kairat Akhmetov a year later, also in Macau to become the undisputed ONE Flyweight World Champion.    ONE Championship: Pinnacle of Power will emanate for the Studio City Events Center in Macau, China.   .....»»

Folayang s return; three title fights on deck for ONE: Unstoppable Dreams in Singapore

Three world title fights, plus the highly-anticipated return of former ONE Championship Lightweight world champion Eduard 'The Landslide' Folayang' highlights ONE Championship's Unstoppable Dreams card on Friday, May 18th at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Six months after his stunning KO defeat to Martin Nguyen for the ONE Lightweight World Championship in Manila, Folayang returns to the very place where he won his first world championship to begin his journey back to the top of the division.  The Team Lakay star's first test comes in the form of unbeaten Russian newcomer Kharun Atlangeriev, who's also looking to make a splash in his ONE debut.  A win over Atlangeriev could rocket Folayang back into the ONE Lightweight World Championhship picture, and at 33 years old, the former champ knows that at this point, opportunities won't be coming as often.  For the debuting Atlangeriev, a win over a name as big as Folayang also pushes him into the title picture.  In the main event of the evening, Singaporean superstar and reigning ONE Atomweight World Champion 'Unstoppable' Angela Lee puts her world title on the line against number one contender Mei 'VV' Yamaguchi in a rematch of their 2016 world title bout.  Originally scheduled for ONE's November 2017 card in Singapore, the Lee-Yamaguchi rematch had to be put on hold after Lee was involved in a car accident that kept her sidelined for a bit.  Since their first bout in 2016, Lee has successfully defended the ONE Atomweight World Championship twice, stopping Jenny Huang and Istela Nunes in impressive fashion. Friday in front of a pro-Lee crowd in Singapore, the champion looks to repeat history by once again beating Yamaguchi.  After her title rematch with Lee was put on hold, Yamaguchi put her top contender spot on the line against Team Lakay's Gina Iniong on short notice. Yamaguchi put on a masterful performance, beating Iniong via unanimous decision in Singapore to secure her place as the rightful number one contender to the champ Lee.  In the co-main event, two-division ONE Championship World Champion Martin 'The Situ-Asian' Nguyen puts his featherweight world title on the line against a familiar opponent in Christian 'The Warrior' Lee.  The two featherweight stars have crossed paths before, with Nguyen extending his winning streak to three straight after choking Lee out in Macau, handing the Singaporean the first and only loss in his career so far.  Since then, Nguyen has won three more bouts and capturing two world championships, while Lee has picked up four straight wins to put him in the front of the line to challenge for the featherweight title.  Follwing a tremendous debut in Manila back in April, the ONE Super Series will be crowning their first world champion in Singapore when Muay Thai legend Sam-A Gaiyanghadao meets Dutch multi-time Muay Thai world champon Sergio Wielzen for the ONE Super Series Flyweight World Championship.  A two-division Lumpinee champion with an unbelievable 365-46-9 Muay Thai record, Gaiyanghadao introduced himself to ONE fight fans back in January after dismantling Joseph Lasiri in a Muay Thai bout at ONE: Global Superheroes in Manila. He now has a chance to add a ONE Super Series world championship to his long list of accolades.  Amsterdam, Netherlands' Wielzen owns a 46-18-2, 1 No Contest Muay Thai record and has a respectable list of accolades of his own, which includes the Lion Fight Featherweight world championship. Wielzen looks to take down a massive name in Gaiyanghadao on his way to another world championship.    Catch ONE Championship: Unstoppable Dreams LIVE starting at 8:30 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23!   .....»»
