Boxing: Donnie Nietes captures WBO Super Flyweight World Championship

The second time was the charm for Filipino boxing star Donnie "Ahas" Nietes, as on his second attempt, he finally captured the WBO Super Flyweight World Championship.  Nietes outworked Japanese star Kazuto Ioka at the Wynn Palace in Cotai, Macau on New Year's Eve to earn a split decision decision win and become a four-division boxing world champion.  The younger Ioka started out strong, keeping Nietes at bay with piston-like jabs to take the first round.  Nietes began to find his rhythm in the succeeding rounds, as he slowly began to outwork Ioka, landing well-placed hooks and uppercuts and forcing the Japanese star to switch up his movement.  The 36-year old Murcia, Negros-native continued to frustrate Ioka as the fight progressed.  Sensing a bit of urgency, Ioka began to rally back in the ninth round, pushing forward and taking advantage of Nietes, who began to slow down a bit.  Ioka continued to push the pace in the tenth round as closed the gap between himself and Nietes.  Nietes regained a bit of steam in the final two rounds, keeping active as Ioka tried to end the fight strong and sway the judges' decision.  At the end of 12 rounds, it was Nietes who walked away with the split decision win (118-110, 112-116, 116-112) to capture the WBO's 115-pound title and make history at the end of 2018.  With the title win, Nietes now joins fellow legends Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire Jr. as the only Filipinos to capture four world championships in as many weight divisions. .....»»

UV s Joshua Yerro has highest ceiling in NBTC CESAFI 24

Do-it-all forward Joshua Yerro was named as the best player from the south as he grabbed the top spot in the final rankings of the Chooks-to-Go/NBTC CESAFI 24. The merit was consolation for the pride of Ormoc, whose University of Visayas was upset by University of Cebu in the recently-concluded CESAFI Finals. The 6-foot-2 forward was somehow denied of a spot in the Mythical Five in spite of averages of 18 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, and three steals, but there was no doubt that he was the best from the field this year. Two more Baby Lancers earned their way in the top three with shifty guard Gabriel Cometa at second and CESAFI slam dunk champion Popoy Actub at third. Baby Webmaster Jerick Jan Ranido, who was named the Finals MVP, settled for fourth while Kendrick Abarquez of the University of San Jose-Recoletos rounded out the top five. Completing the top 10 are Rojan Montemayor of the University of Southern Philippines Foundation, Koko Tuadles of Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu, Justin Mondares of UC, UV’s Beirn Laurente, and then Isaiah Blanco-Hontiveros from UC yet again. Here's the final rankings of the Chooks-to-Go/NBTC CESAFI 24: 1.            Joshua Yerro (UV) 2.            Gabriel Cometa (UV) 3.            Popoy Actub (UV) 4.            Jerick Jan Ranido (UC) 5.            Kendrick Abarquez (USJ-R) 6.            Rojan Montemayor (USPF) 7.            Koko Tuadles (Ateneo de Cebu) 8.            Justin Mondares (UC) 9.            Biern Laurente (UV) 10.          Isaiah Blanco-Hontiveros (UC) 11.          James Incio (UC) 12.          Matthew Paras (USJ-R) 13.          Keith Co (USJ-R) 14.          Neon Chavez (USPF) 15.          Khadshein Tagalog (USC) 16.          Joshua Canoy (Don Bosco) 17.          Jasper Pacana (UC) 18.          Clint Octaviano (USC) 19.          Vernald Almacin (CEC) 20.          Michael Cutamora (Ateneo de Cebu) 21.          LA Casinillo (Ateneo de Cebu) 22.          Matthew Flores (SWU-PHINMA) 23.          Andre Gabutero (CEC) 24.          Matthew Prince Carin (CIT-U) This year, there are three separate editions of the NBTC 24 – one for the NCAA, one for the UAAP, and one for the CESAFI – to accommodate the Juniors calendar for the whole year. After all three editions have been completed, a final list composing the top 24 players nationwide will then be chosen to participate in the annual NBTC All-Star Game in March......»»

Across time, Boholano attitude towards rice and its consumption has apparently changed. Rice, to Boholanos is as sacred as ubi, its ethno-religious root crop.

So you want to raise a sports champion

If there was one incident on the tennis court I still can't quite forget, it was one involving a father and his young daughter training, obviously for age-group events. He was screaming at her, hurling invectives and curses at her, as she hit the balls harder and harder with a trainer. Standing on the side, the dad was obviously playing coach to his daughter, oblivious to the fact that people around the tennis court were stunned by his verbal onslaught. The daughter was a varsity player and an age-group competitor, and was being groomed to go higher in the ranking. He wanted her to be very good, a co-spectator told me, sensing my disapproval. I know, I said, but must he verball...Keep on reading: So you want to raise a sports champion.....»»

Expressing his sentiments, Zuiga -- a person with disability (PWD) due to the amputation of his leg from a bombing incident during martial law -- sent Inquirer a copy of his statement: "The recent video posted by Mocha Uson and Drew Olivar had already drawn a lot of negative comments and reactions, most especially from the PWD community.
