Manny Pacquiao outpunches Adrien Broner to retain WBA title

Looking like a man ten years younger, 40-year old eight-division boxing world champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao punched his way to a unanimous decision win over American Adrien "AB" Broner to retain the WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Championship at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Nevada, Sunday afternoon (Manila time). From the opening bell, Pacquiao was the aggressor as he controlled the center of the ring, shooting in and landing three-to-four punch combinations at a time. Broner, eleven years Pacquiao's junior, seemed to be content with trying to catch Pacquiao off counters and clinches. Pacquiao continued to dictate the tempo of the fight with his jabs and combinations, while Broner tried to find his timing, finding little success with his shots. The champion had a massive seventh round as he landed a couple of left hands that stunned Broner. Pacquiao began to tee off on Broner, who resorted to clinches and collar tie-ups to survive. Pacquiao again struck hard in the ninth round with a follow-up left straight that had Broner backing up. This time around however, Broner managed to defend well and roll with Pacquiao's flurry. The Filipino boxing icon continued to outstrike and outmaneuver Broner until the final bell.  After 12 rounds, the judges scored the bout 117-111, 116-112, and 116-112 in favor of Pacquiao who successfully retained his WBA welterweight title for a 15th successful world title defense in his career, while also notching his tremendous 61st career win. .....»»

Boxing: Manny Pacquiao looks for first WBA title defense against Adrien Broner

Eight-division boxing world champion and current reigning WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao returns to Las Vegas for the first time in two years as he looks to defend his title for the first time against American four-division world champion Adrien Broner at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Saturday evening (Sunday morning, Manila time).  Pacquiao, who turned 40 just last December, continues to defy age as he goes for an impressive 15th world title defense.  Many believe that even at his advanced age, Pacquiao still has what it takes to compete at the highest level of the sport.  The boxer-slash-senator is coming off one of his most impressive performances in a long while, knocking out Argentinian brawler Lucas Matthysse in seven rounds to capture the WBA's secondary welterweight world title.  Now, Pacquiao makes his highly-anticipated return to the boxing capital of the world as he looks to successfully defend the title against a tough challenger.  Broner, eleven years Pacquiao's junior, is also looking to add another milestone to his already impressive resume, as the Ohio native is looking to capture his fifth world championship in as many weight divisions.  Aside from a fifth world championship, AB is also looking to break a back-to-back streak of winless bouts after losing to Mikey Garcia and then going to a draw with Jessie Vargas.  A win for Pacquiao could mean even bigger things in the future, with the rumblings being that a rematch against Floyd Mayweather Jr. could be in the works, should the Filipno boxing icon take care of business on fight night.  For Broner, a win over Pacquiao instantly becomes the biggest on his resume and he once again holds world title gold, nearly four years after his last world champioship win. .....»»

Stronger and Faster at 40: Manny Pacquiao works out in Las Vegas

It didn't take long for Manny Pacquiao to get work in as he arrived in Las Vegas, Nevada.  The eight-division boxing world champion and reigning WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Champion immediately resumed training, less than a day after he and his entourage touched down at the boxing capital of the world, just days ahead of his world title defense against Adrien Broner.          View this post on Instagram                   Pacquiao starts 1st vegas workout #pacquiaobroner A post shared by Dyan Castillejo (@dyancastillejo) on Jan 15, 2019 at 12:53pm PST Manny footwork — DYAN CASTILLEJO (@DYANCASTILLEJO) January 15, 2019           View this post on Instagram                   Coach Freddie , BUBOY , Justin after this : You’re there Manny 👍 #pacquiaobroner A post shared by Dyan Castillejo (@dyancastillejo) on Jan 15, 2019 at 1:39pm PST It was a light day in the gym for the 40-year old, doing some shadow boxing and hitting the mitts, as training usually tapers down as the fight nears.  In an interview with ABS-CBN's Dyan Castillejo after the workout, Pacquiao said that he was ready to go.   "It’s all set, I’m ready for the fight, nothing to worry about," said the Filipino boxing icon.  With regards to his opponent, Manny says that it's all about utilizing what was worked on in training.  "Kung ano yung style niya, napag-handaan na natin, yung focus and then kailangan wag kalimutan yung ginawa sa training." At 40 years old, Pacquiao is definitely on the older side, especially in boxing. But as can be seen in his training, it doesn't seem like he's lost too much oomph in his hands and pep in his step, which he says is nothing short of a blessing.  "Yes, I feel that [I punch harder], andiyan pa yung lakas natin and yung footwork nandiyan parin, bihira lang yung ganito. We’re so blessed by God kasi iilan lang yung boxer na umabot ng 40 and ganito pa din ka-liksi gumalaw," Pacquiao shared.  In Broner, Pacquiao will be facing a man who's eleven years his junior.  The two square off at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday, January 19th (January 20th, Manila time). .....»»

Le Tour rescheduled to June for SEAG preps, rehabilitation of calamity-hit Bicol Region

The organizer of the Le Tour de Filipinas (LTdF) has sought for the rescheduling of the race’s 10th edition in its effort to actively join preparations for the country’s hosting of the 30th Southeast Asian Games and to allow adequate time for the rehabilitation of calamity-stricken provinces in the Bicol Region. UBE Media Inc. President Donna Lina said the LTdF was originally scheduled for February 17 to 21 — this time as a five-stage race from the previous four stages to level up in its first decade. But because of the country’s hosting of the SEA Games from November 30 to December 11 also this year, Lina stressed the LTdF’s role in helping prepare the country’s top riders for the biennial multi-sport regional competitions that the country is hosting only for the fourth time after 1981, 1991 and 2005. UBE Media has written the International Cycling Union or UCI, the world governing body for cycling, through the Asian Cycling Confederation and PhilCycling under President Rep. Abraham Tolentino and Chairman Bert Lina to move the race to June 14 to 18. “The Le Tour organization wanted to help harness our cyclists to their best possible condition in time for the SEA Games,” Lina said. “And because of the recent calamity that struck Camarines Sur, Albay, Sorsogon and the rest of the Bicol Region, it has become more imperative that we postpone the race.” Albay, Camarines Sur and Sorsogon were declared under a state of calamity because of tropical depression Usman, which caused landslides and massive flooding in areas where the LTdF’s 10th editon would specifically pass through, particularly in the town of Sagnay which was badly hit. “In as much as we are ecstatic to celebrate 10 years of the Le Tour, we are one in prayers that our countrymen in the Bicol Region recover fast and well from the calamity,” Lina said. Last year, the LTdF was moved from February to late May after Mayon Volcano’s eruption in January. This year’s LTdF will start in Tagaytay City, main hub of all cycling disciplines—road, mountain bike and BMX—for the SEA Games—and will pass through Batangas, Quezon, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay and Sorsogon. Legaspi City will host the finish of the five-stage Category 2.2 UCI Asia Tour race. June will be a busy month for Philippine cycling with the conduct of the PhilCycling National Championships for Road, MTB and BMX and a proposed UCI National Commissaires’ Course for the three disciplines. The LTdF and national championships will principally cap trials for the selection of athletes for the SEA Games. El Joshua Carino of Philippine Navy-Standard Insurance is expected to defend his crown and will be racing alongside 2014 winner Mark John Lexer Galedo of continental team 7-Eleven Cliqq Roadbike Philippines. Newly-minted continental team Go For Gold and the National Under-23 Team of the PhilCycling are also seeing action......»»

ONE Championship Chairman Chatri Sityodtong all praise for Filipino champions Vera, Folayang, and Team Lakay

For the fourth time in 2018, ONE Championship came to Manila and delivered another exciting night of martial arts action. ONE: CONQUEST OF CHAMPIONS, which was held last 23 November at the Mall of Asia Arena was another one for the books as the event saw two Filipino stars walk out with world championship belts. In the co-main event, Team Lakay star Eduard “Landslide” Folayang achieved history by becoming a two-time ONE Lightweight World Champion with his win over Singapore’s Amir Khan. The main event saw the triumphant return of ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon Vera as he smashed Italian challenger Mauro “The Hammer” Cerilli in just 64 seconds to retain his title. It was one of the biggest nights in Filipino mixed martial arts, and ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong had nothing but praise for the night’s biggest winners. “Congratulations to Eduard Landslide Folayang on becoming the ONE Lightweight World Champion again! You inspire all of us with your courageous journey of overcoming adversity, defeating odds, and chasing dreams,” Sityodtong said on Facebook. Sityodtong has long been one of Folayang’s biggest believers, and was confident that the Filipino hero would reclaim his spot at the top of the division, even after losing to Martin Nguyen a year ago. “It was truly the best Eduard Folayang that I have seen in the almost 10 years we have known each other. You proved all of the doubters, haters, and naysayers wrong. I remember vividly how some idiot journalists were calling for your retirement exactly a year ago after you lost the belt,” Sityodtong continued. ONE Championship’s head honcho also had some kind words to say about Vera and Cerilli as well. “Congratulations to my bro Brandon Vera on another magnificent, flawless performance! Mauro Cerilli is a dangerous champion with monster KO power, and Brandon made it look easy.” “I was equally impressed by how gracious and humble you were to Mauro after your victory. I am proud to call you our ONE Heavyweight World Champion because you embody everything that is beautiful about martial arts,” he added. At the end of the night, the Philippines had control of five of ONE Championship’s eleven mixed martial arts world championships. Of those five, four were held by members of famed Benguet-based stable Team Lakay. Because of this dominance, Sityodtong went as far as calling the Filipino stable the best in the world. “I would also like to congratulate my good friend, Mark Sangiao, for building the greatest team in martial arts in the world! There is no question that Team Lakay is the #1 team in the world,” he proclaimed. “They have achieved so much on the world stage with so little. With a humble little gym in Baguio, Team Lakay has toppled some of the greatest teams and athletes in the world through its passion, tenacity, excellence, and humility.” “Thank you for showing the world that nothing is impossible and for exemplifying the true meaning of martial arts,” he concluded......»»
