I will be a champion one day - Team Lakay s Danny Kingad reflects on loss to Adriano Moraes

At ONE Championship: Legends of the World in Manila, Team Lakay young gun Danny 'The King' Kingad took on the biggest challenge of his young career, facing reigning flyweight champion Adriano Moraes for the title.  In front of a partisan Filipino crowd however, the more experienced Moraes had his way with the smaller Kingad en route to a first round submission win.  While it was a quick defeat for Kingad, it was also definitely a learning experience for the 21-year old contender, who was coming off back-to-back fight cancellations.  "Yung masasabi ko lang sa kanya, talagang it’s not my time talaga." Kingad said post-fight. "I will go back to the gym again and train and train, meron din kaming pagkakataon, kukunin at kukunin namin yung belt na yan para sa ating bansa." (All I can say is that it really wasn't my time. I will go back to the gym and train and train, and we'll have our chance again. We're going to get that belt, for our country.) On his Facebook page, Kingad spoke about the experience more, saying that while he may have lost that night, his spirit has not been defeated.  "I will be a champion one day." he ended.  Kingad remains as one of ONE Championships young stars to be watched out for, especially now that he's had some experience fighting for a world championship.  Don't be surprised if 'The King' gets even better as he moves forward.   .....»»

The journey doesn t end here : former champ Eduard Folayang remains motivated following loss to Martin Nguyen

Eduard Folayang's magical run as ONE Championship lightweight world champion is over.  Friday night at ONE: Legends of the World in Manila, Folayang was on the wrong end of a brutal knockout loss to now-two division world champion Martin Nguyen. It was a painful end to what was an insipiring journey to the top for the Team Lakay superstar, and the image of seeing the Pinoy hero getting seperated from his senses is one that will remain with Pinoy fight fans for a while.  Days after the loss, Folayang released a statement via ONE Championship, reassuring everyone that he's fine after the match's violent end.  "First and foremost, I thank God for His protection. At this point, I assure my followers and the fans of Team Lakay that I am alright and there is nothing to be anxious about. I am still in good physical condition." Folayang said. "I extend my heartfelt gratitude to ONE Championship for seeing that I get the best medical attention after the match. Folayang went on to thank the Filipino fans who came and supported him and Team Lakay, Friday night.  "I take this opportunity to thank my countrymen for their support not only to me but to the entire Team Lakay athletes who competed last November 10 at the Mall of Asia Arena. My heart is overwhelmed with the outpouring of their encouragement. We hope we can pay it forward. As for Nguyen, the Baguio City native congratulated the new champion and added that this isn't the end of the line for 'The Landside." "I tip my hat off to Martin Nguyen. He did his homework well and came very prepared. Because of this, my hunger for improvement remains unsatiated. This is a big lesson learned. I believe challenges inside and outside the cage always bring out the best in us. I assure you that the journey doesn't end here." The former champion has been in the same situation before. Following a devastating KO loss to lightweight contender Timofey Nastyukhin back in 2014, Folayang went on an amazing run which led him to the top of the lightweight division.  ONE Championship chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong fully believes that the Pinoy warrior can once again rise to the top of the heap. "I expect Eduard to shine again."  Sityodtong said during the post-fight presser.  As for now, Folayang will likely take a break as he and the team prepare for what's set to be an eventful 2018. "The odds were not in my favor last Friday. Nevertheless, Team Lakay and I will exert our best efforts to wave our Philippine flag more triumphantly in 2018."     Eduard Folayang quotes courtesy of ONE Championship.....»»

PBA keeps All-Star Game format for next season

Taking the cue from last season, the 2018 PBA All-Star Event will not be confined in one city or one province. Just like the last time, the PBA mounts an island-hopping journey to showcase the All Stars in PBA Season 43.   Approved in principle is another three-leg All-Star event coming in the heels of the successful 2017 All-Star extravaganza with stops in Cagayan de Oro, Lapu-Lapu City and Lucena. This time, the PBA is playing the Luzon game in Batangas and the Mindanao tiff in Davao. Still up for bidding is the hosting right for the Visayas. “Still uncertain is the format of the All-Star Game,” said PBA director for external affairs Willie Marcial. Last year, the PBA again veered away from the regular North versus South format, instead pitting Gilas Pilipinas against PBA All Stars from Mindanao, the Visayas and Luzon in three separate matches. “The members of the PBA board were all happy with the turnout of each game, thus, they want another Luzon-Visayas-Mindanao series,” Marcial said......»»

King Arthur gets love from Mexican fans in questionable loss to WBC champ Nery in Tijuana

While Filipino boxer 'King' Arthur Villanueva put on a show, it was reigning WBC bantamweight world champion Luis 'Pantera' Nery that came away with his hand raised in his hometown of Tijuana, Mexico, Saturday evening.  Nery stopped Villanueva via TKO in the sixth round of their non-title contest, in a stoppage that some have deemed early.  The Mexican champion blitzed and stunned the Pinoy, and the referee quickly intervened, calling the fight in favor of Nery.  Villanueva however, says that he wasn't out at all.  "Hindi nawala yung isip ko, focus pa din ako sa laban, ganun. Yung na-feel ko una, parang nawala ng lakas yung paako, pero yung isip ko andun pa din." Villanueva shared with ABS-CBN News' Steve Angeles, who was in Tijuana for fight night.  While Nery eventually took the W, it wasn't without a stellar effort from Villanueva, who had his moments in the match, including a fourth-round knockdown of the champion.  Prior to the fight-ending combination from Nery, the ALA Boxing standout was finding his rythm and scoring.  Villanueva's gutsy performance managed to win over the pro-Nery crowd in Tijuana, an impressive feat in itself.  After the fight, the fans showed the Pinoy warrior some love.  "Ako mismo bilang isang boxer, masaya din ako kasi naipakita ko yung abilidad ko sa laban na yun, tapos yung mga tao, na-appreciate naman yung ginawa ko at maraming nagandahan sa laban." The Bago-City native had his third fight in the last seven months, two of them coming against champions in Zolani Tete and Nery, so 'King Arthur' will be taking some well-deserved time off to let his body get some rest.      H/T: Steve Angeles, ABS-CBN News.....»»
