TERRIFIC 12: San Miguel’s title run goes through Lance Stephenson

MACAU — San Miguel Beer’s road to yet another championship will have to go through a former Los Angeles Laker in Lance Stephenson. Stephenson now plays for China’s Liaoning Flying Leopards and the Beermen will have to beat them in the semifinals here to reach the championship round of the East Asia Super League’s The Terrific 12 tournament. San Miguel swept Group B of the Terrific 12, beating China’s Shenzhen Aviators and defending champion Ryukyu Golden Kings from Japan. Import Dez Wells is for real, leading the Beermen with highlight plays on both ends of the floor. The same can be said of Stephenson, who has been simply dazzling in the Terrific 12 during a Group D sweep. In a showdown of arguably the two best teams of this year’s tournament, only one will move on to the Finals. Tip off for San Miguel-Liaoning will be at 7:00 p.m. live from the Tap Seac Multi-sport Pavillion. The other semifinals showdown feature China’s Zhejiang Guangsha Lions and South Korea’s Seoul SK Knights.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PVL: Flying Titans eye end of five-game skid

Struggling ChocoMucho tries to turn its fortune around as it attempts to repeat over winless Chef’s Classics on Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center in Bulacan. After a promising 2-1 start, the Flying Titans saw themselves spiraling down with five consecutive losses to finish the first round in seventh place. ChocoMucho looks to check its skid at 2:00 p.m. against the last team it defeated in the first round a month ago. The match will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream. The Flying Titans are coming off a sorry five-set loss to Motolite last Sunday in their first game without prized middle blocker Maddie Madayag, who joined the national team in Thailand for a training camp and to participate in the inaugural ASEAN Grand Prix from Sept. 20-22 in Nakhon Ratchasima. Her departure left league-leading scorer Kat Tolentino to shoulder most of the scoring load but her 33-point production the last time out wasn’t enough to stop ChocoMucho’s bleeding. Shannen Palec, Arianne Angustia, Cindy Imbo and Kim Gequillana must step up their game to help Tolentino on offense to duplicate their first round win over the Lady Red Spikers. Chef’s Classics is still looking for its breakthrough win after dropping its first nine games. Nieza Viray and Justine Tiu need to get as much help as they can from the rest of the Lady Red Spikers to barge in the win column.   ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Lady Troopers try to reignite win streak

PacificTown Army started the second round on a high note and the Lady Troopers hope to sustain that momentum when they take on slumping BaliPure on Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center in Bulacan. Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream. PacificTown Army defeated Chef’s Classics in straight sets last Wednesday to get back on the winning track after closing the first round with a stinging setback to Air Force last week for a 5-4 win-loss card. The Lady Troopers has fully adjusted from the absence of opposite hitter Jovelyn Gonzaga, who with head coach Kungfu Reyes joined the national team in Thailand to play in the ongoing inaugural ASEAN Grand Prix in Nakhon Ratchasima.      The trio of Honey Royse Tubino, Jem Gutierrez and Ging Balse-Pabayo, who tallied double-digit scoring the last time out, will again lead the charge of PacificTown Army against the squad they beat in four sets in the first round. On the other hand, BaliPure tries to stop a five-game bleeding behind the troika of Grazielle Bombita, Menchie Tubiera and Shirley Salamagos. The Water Defenders suffered a straight sets beating at the hands of unbeaten defending champion Creamline last Wednesday to fall to a 2-8 mark.     ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

ONE Championship: Brandon Vera super excited for matchup with Aung La N Sang

The world will soon witness potentially one of the greatest bouts in ONE Championship history when two of the greatest warriors, ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera and two-division ONE World Champion Aung La N Sang, square off at ONE: CENTURY in October for the light heavyweight title.   Vera made a decision to challenge Aung La earlier this year, so he sought the permission of ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong.   Aung La successfully defended his title against Ken Hasegawa at ONE: A NEW ERA last March. Vera congratulated him on his win before humbly and respectfully challenging “The Burmese Python” for the light heavyweight title.   “I wasn’t very comfortable doing that inside the cage. It was Aung La N Sang‘s time to shine, but I’ve been wanting to become a double titleholder – a champ-champ – and I’ve always wanted to challenge for the ONE Light Heavyweight World Title,” said Vera.    “I just happened to be in Tokyo, the next event I wanted to compete on is in Tokyo, and I think it would be a beautiful main event or co-main event.”     “When I went in there, I was very nervous – not about challenging, but doing it in the most respectful way that Aung La deserves – especially after he just won his ONE Middleweight World Championship bout against Ken Hasegawa,” he explained.    “It was super weird and super nerve-wracking – kind of awkward, but kind of awesome at the same time. I got to talk to Aung La after we got out of the cage and now I’m feeling more comfortable about challenging him like that.”   During that moment, Vera referred to Aung La as a “man among men,” describing him as a father, a good role model, and a true martial artist -- a person everyone can look up to and aspire to become.   “Aung La is younger than me, but as a whole, he is a man among men, and I do put him in a different category to other people. He’s very well-rounded in life. He’s an alpha male in the most respectful and polite manner. If the world was full of Aung Las, the world would be a better place,” said Vera.   The Filipino-American heavyweight is looking forward to his match with Aung La in October if they’re both healthy. Vera, who is on a four-bout winning streak, shared that he is excited to next face Aung La, whom he believes can take him past the first round.     With a professional record of 25-10-1, Myanmar’s hero is currently enjoying a six-bout winning streak through five knockouts and a submission. Vera respects Aung La’s power, skill, and heart and has studied and analyzed his fighting style.   “This is really hard to break down because I can’t really pick apart Aung La’s game. We’re almost related. His coach came from my coach. We train the same, we know the same hardships, we’ve been through that grind,” Vera said.  “His new coach [Henri Hooft] was training with my former head kickboxing coach Rob Kaman – they’ve been sparring with each other since they were 17 – so our style is almost the same.”   A win means Vera will hold both the light heavyweight and heavyweight championship titles. Having fought some of the biggest names in martial arts, he is confident that he has the upper hand in the upcoming bout.   “I think the biggest difference between us is our experience,” he said.    “During his matches, I look for those little holes he still has because of his lack of experience. I’m not going to outpace Aung La, I’m not going to outwork Aung La. I’m not going to be a bully because that’s impossible. He’s been through the same system.”   “I have to find holes in Aung La’s game and exploit them while he’s doing the same thing to me. We come from the same school, the same train of thought, so this is why I’m super excited for this match,” he added.     ONE: CENTURY will be available on multiple platforms for every Kapamilya viewer!  Catch ONE: CENTURY in it’s entirety on LIVESTREAMING on Sunday, October 13 starting at 8:00 AM (Part 1) and 4:00 PM (Part 2) via sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/one and on iWant Sports as well as on the ABS-CBN Sports Facebook Page and the ABS-CBN Sports YouTube Page!

There s more to Bibiano Fernandes than just grappling, says Mark Sangiao`

Kevin "The Silencer" Belingon has more than grappling to worry about when he takes on ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano "The Flash" Fernandes in the final chapter of their storied rivalry. For years, opponents have feared Fernandes for his jiu-jitsu. But according to Mark Sangiao – Belingon’s head coach – a lot of people have overlooked the Bantamweight World Champion’s high-level boxing. The power of “The Flash” was evident in their recent encounter when “The Silencer” was rocked with an overhand right. And it is something Sangiao he hopes his protégé will avoid when he meets the Brazilian in the co-main event of ONE: CENTURY PART II.   “Kevin was close to getting finished the last time out,” Sangiao admitted as they gear up for their fourth encounter with Fernandes on 13 October at the Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan.  “Bibiano faked going low before unleashing a wild right. That’s what I noticed in their last match.”  Fernandes' boxing goes hand-in-hand with his renowned ground game according to the Team Lakay mentor.  A well-rounded mixed martial artist, the AMC Pankration representative has perfected mixing up his offense and can attack from anywhere. “His boxing is always connected with his strategy when it comes to wrestling. When he throws something strong, expect him to come in,” Sangiao said.  “He’ll fake a shoot, then he’ll throw something strong. If you’re not ready for that then you’re in trouble.” After three previous bouts against “The Flash,” Sangiao and his 31-year-old apprentice are familiar with Fernandes – and the Filipino coach promised not to make the same mistake again. “Right now he has to be wary [about] defense,” Sangiao said.  “Kevin needs to tighten up his defense more. He also has to make Bibiano feel his power. That’s what we’re working on.”  As far as game plan and strategy, Sangiao vowed that Belingon is equipped for the test ahead of him.  “He’s in much better shape compared to last time,” Sangiao said. “Conditioning wise, I think he’s in better condition.”  Will Belingon end his rivalry against Fernandes as the winner? Find out at ONE: CENTURY on 13 October at the Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan. The Home Of Martial Arts brings fans 28 World Champions, four World Title bouts, three World Grand Prix Championship Finals, and four World Champion versus World Champion match-ups in the promotion’s two-part 100th event.    Download the ONE Super App to catch the action live and for free.   ONE: CENTURY will be available on multiple platforms for every Kapamilya viewer!  Catch ONE: CENTURY in it’s entirety on LIVESTREAMING on Sunday, October 13 starting at 8:00 AM (Part 1) and 4:00 PM (Part 2) via sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/one and on iWant Sports as well as on the ABS-CBN Sports Facebook Page and the ABS-CBN Sports YouTube Page!
