ONE Championship: Joshua Pacio Feels Late Takedown Won The Match For Yosuke Saruta

Joshua “The Passion” Pacio fell short in his first World Title defense, and he is not making any excuses. The 23-year-old Team Lakay prodigy lost the ONE Strawweight World Title to Yosuke “Tobizaru” Saruta in the main event of ONE: ETERNAL GLORY, which emanated from the Istora Senayan in Jakarta, Indonesia last Saturday. Pacio lost the five-round affair via razor-thin split decision and though it stings, he knows exactly where things went wrong. "I think experience played a factor, but it was also up to me. If only I upped my work rate, perhaps the decision went to my favor," admitted Pacio. "I was controlled in the final round with his ground and pound. I think that's how he got ahead on the scorecards." The La Trinidad, Benguet native was on the receiving end of Saruta's aggression the entire evening. But as the Japanese challenger kept his nonstop pace from opening bell, “The Passion” was equally impressive in tagging the veteran with clean, crisp counters. It was a close battle up until the waning moments of the final stanza, when “Tobizaru” got a huge takedown. Pacio felt that was the turning point of the match. "In round five, I had a feeling that the fight would end in a split decision, so I worked to score a takedown. We exchanged strikes in the middle of the cage, then suddenly it was me on the mat," he explained. "That was my mistake, so I have to review what happened and watch the fight again. This fight is a huge learning experience. The loss motivates me to keep training and improve my weaknesses in both my attacks and defense." It was not the kind of start that Pacio hoped for the team as he became the first World Champion from Team Lakay to drop his belt. But that loss would only make him better, and with youth on his side, Pacio vows to bounce back stronger for another title run in the future. "I really missed on a lot of things, the next time I fight, I want to be able to do everything I trained for.”.....»»

Cardi B slams pro-border wall commentator in height of US gov’t shutdown

Cardi B found herself in a heated Twitter exchange with conservative commentator Tomi Lahren after the latter poked fun at the "Bodak Yellow" rapper for sharing her opinions on the United States' government shutdown. The government shutdown began on December 2018 after Trump and Democrats failed to reach a budget agreement when it came to his demands for his $5.7 billion U.S.-Mexico border wall, meant to ward off immigrants. The impact of the shutdown has been felt throughout the country, as 800,000 federal workers missed their pay checks on Jan. 11, relying instead on various GoFundMe pages run by private citizens to pay for rent, food and other needs.

Pope visit to Central America highlights church ministry to migrants

GUATEMALA CITY --- When Pope Francis visits Panama this week, he arrives not only as the first Latin American pontiff to visit Central America but as perhaps the world's most prominent advocate for migrants at a time when migration has become a pressing political issue in the region and elsewhere. The Argentine-born son of Italian immigrants has long held the issue dear to his heart and has signaled that it will be a central theme during the trip, which comes as the latest caravan of Central Americans is wending its way toward the US-Mexico frontier and President Donald Trump's promised border wall has led to the longest government shutdown in the country's history.

China population rises 15.23 million in 2018, but rate slows

BEIJING --- China's population rose by 15.23 million people in 2018, marking a continued decrease in the growth rate of the world's most populous nation. Numbers released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday put the population at 1.395 billion in 2018, marking a growth rate of 3.81 percent over the previous year. The total included 30 million more men than women, considered a long-time outcome of the recently abandoned one-child policy under which boys were favored over girls for cultural reasons. The government estimates China's population will peak at 1.442 billion in 2029 before beginning to decline the year after. India, the world's second most populous nati...Keep on reading: China population rises 15.23 million in 2018, but rate slows.....»»
