ONE: Interim champ Geje Eustaquio hopes son follows in his footsteps

While becoming a world champion is indeed motivation for Team Lakay flyweight star and reigning ONE Championship Interim Flyweight Champion Geje Eustaquio, the Baguio City native is being fueled by something...or someone else.  Meet Castiel Achilles Gerard Eustaquio, or Cage for short, Geje's four year old son.  "He’s my fuel, as I said, he’s my drive, motivation, and I’m happy and proud that he’s my son." said Eustaquio during a press conference in Macau, two days before his scheduled title unification bout against reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes at ONE: Pinnacle of Power on Satuday, July 23rd.  And while most other fighters would wish that their kids rather not follow in their footsteps, Geje believes otherwise.  It would give the 29-year old nothing but joy to see his little boy one day become a martial artist as well.  "Yeah, if he loves martial arts, I will be the happiest father in the world," "Because as I said, martial arts is not about fighting, it’s not about kicking, it’s a way of life." If Cage decided to take a different path however, daddy assures that his support will still be there, 100%  "Kung ibang sports, it depends on the sport. If he chooses basketball, if he chooses soccer, well my  support is a hundred percent."   Geje Eustaquio and Adriano Moraes battle of the undisputed ONE Championship Flyweight World Title at ONE: Pinnacle of Power, Saturday, June 23rd at the Studio City Events Center in Macau, China.  Catch it LIVE starting at 11:00 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

ONE: With title responsibilities, Geje Eustaquio’s pursuit for further learning has been put on hold

For Team Lakay flyweight star and reigning interim ONE Flyweight champion Geje Eustaquio, life is a continuous learning process. Already the holder of a Master’s Degree in Physical Education, the Baguio native admitted that he’s looking to even further expand his range of learning by either taking law or going for a Doctor’s Degree. The former teacher however admitted, that being an interim champion in Asia’s biggest mixed martial arts promotion is pretty time consuming, thus likely putting his schooling on hold. “It’s gonna be between a doctor’s degree or a law degree. We will see, I cannot say for now, most especially when you’re holding an interim belt, the responsibility is a bit harder.” Eustaquio said. “Kung before I train two, three rounds, now I train four, five, six rounds. It’s kinda tough. It’s on hold for now.” Saturday night at the Studio City Events Center in Macau, China, Eustaquio has the chance to elevate his world title status from interim to undisputed when he challenges reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes in a title unification bout. If Eustaquio pulls it off, he will carry the responsibility of being a world champion, and will have a target on his back. This could very well push his academic aspirations back even further. “Actually mas mahirap mag-isip na naman if I become the undisputed champion, because once again, sabi nga ni Spiderman, with great power comes great responsibility, so I have to maintain that belt and train more to maintain that belt.” But for someone who already has a Master’s Degree and is an accomplished mixed martial artist, what’s the motivation behind wanting to go back to school? For Geje, it’s pretty simple. “Life is learning.” “It doesn’t mean that when you have a degree, it’s so you can work, or you can have a better job. It’s about learning. When I have my doctor’s degree, it’s a long run of learning. When I have my law degree, it’s also a learning. For me, I treat as, everyday I learn, that’s why I go into this.” Eustaquio added.   Geje Eustaquio and Adriano Moraes battle of the undisputed ONE Championship Flyweight World Title at ONE: Pinnacle of Power, Saturday, June 23rd at the Studio City Events Center in Macau, China.  Catch it LIVE starting at 11:00 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

Ejercito urges PNP to clarify guidelines on ‘anti-tambay’ drive

https://youtu.be/OdP8EYrjWmM Amid continued fears of possible human rights violations, Senator JV Ejercito called on the Philippine National Police (PNP) on Thursday to come up with guidelines before enforcing its "anti-tambay" campaign.   Ejercito noted the arrests of loiterers immediately after President Rodrigo Duterte's warning against them.   "Siguro dapat i-clarify ng PNP 'yung guidelines. Dapat meron silang guidelines in the first place.

New Gin King Jeff Chan gets a warm welcome from the Barangay

Just a days after getting traded to the Ginebra Gin Kings, Jeff Chan already got some minutes in for his new team, as the sharpshooter went for four points, three rebounds, and two assists in over 19 minutes of action. The new ka-Barangay was happy to be on the floor with the words “GINEBRA AKO” emblazoned on his jersey. It was also a big help that the pro-Gin Kings crowd gave him a warm welcome to the Barangay. Ginebra, after all, has arguably the largest fanbase in the PBA. “Actually yung kanina nga, pag-pasok ko medyo namalahibo ako, kasi yung crowd, pag-welcome nila sa akin.”  Chan said after his Ginebra debut. “Siyempre masaya diba kasi welcome ako sa kanila, sa mga Barangay, so yun. excited na ulit ako sa next game. Sana nandun sila ulit.” And while it was indeed a warm welcome for ‘The Negros Sniper”, Chan admits that on the court, there was still some adjustment to be done. “I think kailangan ko pang matutunan and mapag-aralan yung system ni Coach kasi one day palang ako nakapagpractice so nangangapa pa ako doon” “Ok naman [yung experience] pero minsan sumisigaw sila sa [mula sa] bench kung saan pwesto ko dapat, kasi agai, di ko pa talaga kabisado. Medyo forgiving pa si coach Tim Cone, alam niya na first day ko palang.” Chan added. As the Gin Kings continue to try and make a push for the post-season, expect the former FEU Tamaraw to ease into Ginebra’s system and provide even more valuable minutes......»»

Since 5 a.m. of June 13 to 5 a.m. of June 20, it has been reported that the PNP has arrested as much as 7, 291 tambaysin Metro Manila alone, rounding up nighttime idlers and loiterers in the dark streets of the city.

PBA: Mac Tallo knows he’s no Kiefer or Kevin, but he vows to go all-out for NLEX

Not even a week after getting signed, Mac Tallo made an immediate impact for NLEX on Friday at the MOA Arena. Scoring 11 points and collecting three assists and steals apiece as well as two blocks, the Cebuano helped the Road Warriors put up a fight against red-hot Alaska. In the end, they fell, 111-120, but their newcomer’s contributions were much welcome especially as they no longer have both of Kiefer Ravena and Kevin Alas for the foreseeable future. Drafted in the first round by TNT in the 2017 Draft, he was left unsigned after the first conference before getting picked up by NLEX. And so, of course, the jitters were there for Tallo in his first game since last conference. “It’s my first actual game na five-on-five after six months. Kinakapa ko pa sarili ko so nagdasal ako,” he told reporters post-game. He then continued, “Pinakita ko lang kung anong kaya kong gawin. At the same time, follow lang (kung) ano sinasabi nila coach.” And obviously, in head coach Yeng Guiao’s system, good looks should never be turned down. “Yung mga teammates ko, I asked them for advice and sabi nila na kay coach Yeng, pag-open ka, itira mo talaga. Pag-open ka tapos ‘di mo ititira, papagalitan ka talaga,” he said. He then continued, “So mas better na ititira ko talaga kaya yung kumpyansa ko, tamang-tama talaga kay coach Yeng.” Indeed, the 10th overall pick tried his best to do just that, converting five of his 11 shots. Still, he said he can do much better – especially as he isn’t too far removed from the latent tuberculosis that kept him sidelined for the first half of the year. “Nakikita ko na kulang pa talaga ako kundisyon. Nagkasakit kasi ako kaya pina-bedrest ako for two months tapos pagbalik ko, parang ang taba ko,” he shared. He then continued, “I was 94 kg (then). Nag-lose ako (ng weight) and I’m now 85 kg, pero gusto ko pa na 80 kg ako.” Once Tallo gets to do just that, bigger things should be expected from him in the Road Warriors’ shorthanded backcourt. Don’t expect him to do Kiefer Ravena or Kevin Alas things, however. “Hindi naman ako Kiefer Ravena maglaro, ‘di naman ako Kevin Alas maglaro so I’m not really pressured,” he answered when asked about the shoes he has to fill. For now, the 25-year-old just wants to keep getting better and better. “Tuloy-tuloy lan sana yung laro ko. First game ko ngayon so yun lang muna iisipin ko, (to) be consistent every night,” he remarked. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

After non-selection, Myla Pablo still leads call for PH team support

Pocari Sweat-Air Force hitter Myla Pablo wasted no time in proving that she has her fellow Filipina volleybelles' backs. Pablo, a three-time champion for the Lady Warriors in the V-League and the Premier Volleyball League, was cut from the 14-woman national team pool that is set to compete in the 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia this August. The former National University Lady Bulldog was part of the initial 20 players considered for the squad but was left off. Volleyball fans quickly jumped on social media to point out what they consider an unfair exclusion from the lineup, but Pablo was also swift in defending her fellow players.

PVL: Lady Warriors rise to top spot in quarters

Pocari Sweat-Philippine Air Force took another step forward in making sure its title defense goes through at least the semifinals of the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference. Dropping the first set before regrouping and resoundingly taking the next three, the Lady Warriors sank Iriga-Navy, 23-25, 25-18, 25-20, and 25-22, on Wednesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Reinforcements Maddie Palmer and Ari Love showed the way with 19 and 18 points, respectively. Skipper Myla Pablo was also right there with them with 14 markers to her name. The defending champions took time to get going, though, and allowed Macy Ubben and the Lady Oragons to claim the first frame. “Parang diesel (kami). Yun nga, siguro, kailangan muna nilang masaktan siguro,” head coach Jasper Jimenez shared post-game. From that point, Love took charge and led Pocari Sweat-Air Force to an 8-5 start in the second set that blew up to a lead of as much as eight, 19-11. Both the lead and the momentum would stay with the Lady Warriors for the remainder of the match. Pablo and company are now 2-0 in the round robin quarterfinals – putting them closer and closer to the semifinals. “We need two more wins. Siguro, kung makadalawang panalo pa kami, that’s it, semifinals na,” Jimenez said. Disputing the last two seats in the semifinals along with Pocari-Sweat-Air Force and Iriga-Navy are BaliPure, BanKo-Perlas, Petro Gazz, and Tacloban. “Sana, magtuloy-tuloy ‘tong ganitong performance namin,” Jimenez also remarked. The Lady Oragons fell to 0-2 in the quarterfinals even after a 27-point performance from Ubben. Lauren Whyte also added 18 markers. The top two finishers in the round robin quarterfinals will move on to the next round. Already there are Creamline and PayMaya who secured the top spots in the Final Four after their respective impressive runs in the preliminary round. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

From humble origins in GenSan, Manny Pacquiao s MPBL is now a nation-wide league

With the second season of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League kicking things off, Tuesday evening, its steady rise to popularity continues Following a successful inaugural season with ten teams, the playing field has expanded exponentially in the second season, now with 26 teams vying for the title of MPBL National Champion, as well as a very, very valuable piece of hardware. (READ ALSO: MPBL: National Champions to get trophy worth ten million pesos) And as the semi-professional league continues to grow, it’s amazing to think that it all started with a ‘pa-liga’ in General Santos City. The brainchild of eight-division boxing world champion-turned Philippine Senator and avid basketball enthusiast Manny Pacquiao, the MPBL wasn’t always a nation-wide league. “Itong MPBL kasi, the original name is Manny Pacquiao Basketball League, and we piloted it sa GenSan,” Pacquiao explained during the opening day of the 2018-2019 MPBL Anta Datu Cup, Tuesday at the Araneta Coliseum. “Nag-pilot kami ng ten seasons, parang pa-liga ko lang doon tapos open siya and maraming sumali. Nagkaroon kami ng 18 teams, hanggang ten seasons yun, ang premyo namin ay 1 million.” After seeing that the league had potential, Senator Manny decided to take it to another level. “Maganda naman yung resulta, tapos pinag-aralan ko ng mabuti kung ano yung mga dapat gawin, yung titignan natin, and then nung na-complete ko yung ten seasons, in-apply ko sa national.” “[Pwede na ‘to] sa national, i-apply ko, ila-live ko sa TV.” Pacquiao added. After two years of brainstorming and preparation, the MPBL as we know it now was born. Pacquiao added that he decided to replace “Manny Pacquiao” with “Maharlika Pilipinas” so as not to stir anything up, given his political status. From a simple league in General Santos to a nation-wide league that features 26 teams from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, all bannered by former professionals, collegiate hoop stars, and homegrown talents, the MPBL is definitely living up to what Pacquiao envisioned it to be: a platform for even more FIlipinos to showcase their basketball skills at a high level. "Nagsimula lahat sa isang pangarap, na mabigyan ng pagkakataon ang mas maraming Pilipino na makapaglaro ng basketball sa professional level..." Sen. @mannypacquiao speaking at the opening of the 2018 MPBL Datu Cup. @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/7PjRARV0bU — Santino Honasan🎈 (@honasantino) June 12, 2018   You can catch the exciting MPBL action on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23!  .....»»

Gerald Anderson on MPBL stint: ‘Mas pangarap ko ‘to kaysa mag-artista’

Gerald Anderson was alongside ABL champion and UAAP MVP Ray Parks Jr. as one of the faces of the 2018 Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Anta Datu Cup. Come opening day on Tuesday at the Araneta Colseum, however, unfortunately, the Kapamilya star was unable to make his long-awaited debut. Anderson stood from the sidelines in street clothes as the rest of the Marikina Shoemakers downed the General Santos Warriors, 88-81. Asked why he wasn’t suited up post-game, he answered, “Yung usual injury ng player. Nagkataon lang na nangyari sa akin week before (first game ng MPBL).” As it turns out, the Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin star suffered a hamstring injury not even a week before the MPBL’s opening day. “Sinubukan ko gawin lahat. Medyo malungkot at broken-hearted nga ako kanina,” he shared. He then continued, “Matagal ko ‘to inabangan, but ganun talaga.” And so, Anderson will have to wait nine more days to finally get to play in the semi-pro league. From now until then, Marikina will do nothing but look for big things from their Filipino-foreigner. As head coach Elvis Tolentino put it, “Aside kay Yves [Sazon], kay Gerald, malaki expectations ko.” The good news for the Shoemakers is that Anderson is only ready and raring to return their trust in him – especially as it is his dream to play with them. “Kung mataas expectation niya sakin, lalo na ako kaya nga kung walang taping, may (training) session ako sa bahay,” he said. He then continued, “Iba na ‘to e. ‘Di ‘to basta-bastang liga. Mas pangarap ko nga to kesa mag-artista e.” Hopefully, his dream finally turns into reality when Marikina takes on Muntinlupa in Laguna on June 21. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
