PSC OIC Fernandez, national boxers undergo COVID-19 swab tests

Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) Commissioner and newly appointed Officer-In-Charge Ramon Fernandez led the coronavirus (COVID-19) swab testing on Thursday at the PhilSports Complex in Pasig City. Fernandez was accompanied by his wife Karla Kintanar-Fernandez and is expected to complete the 14-day quarantine while doing his OIC functions until July 17. “We will comply with the standard procedures to ensure that we are helping in curbing the spread of the virus,” shared Fernandez. Aside from Fernandez, national boxers from Baguio City, including 2021 Tokyo Olympics qualifier Irish Magno and 2019 AIBA Women’s World Champion Nesthy Petecio with 10 more boxers - six males and four females - and one coach, also went through swab testing.

‘It’s a stupid fight’ - Bob Arum says GGG fight could be dangerous for Manny Pacquiao

Add Top Rank Boxing boss Bob Arum to the list of people who aren’t too keen on seeing Manny Pacquiao go up to 160-pounds.  The former long-time Pacquiao promoter shared his thoughts on the rumours of the Filipino eight-division boxing world champion wanting to possibly rule over a ninth weight class and challenge reigning IBF and IBO Middleweight World Champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin.  “It’s a stupid fight,” Arum told Daily Mail UK's sports arm Sportsmail. 'I know Golovkin appears to be over the hill, but it’s a fight that could be very dangerous for Pacquiao.” At 38-years of age, Kazakhstan’s Golovkin (40-1-1, 35 KO) isn’t much younger than the 41-year old Pacquiao, but what makes ‘GGG’ a very dangerous matchup for the smaller Pinoy is his size and his power.  While Pacquiao may possess a speed advantage, Golovkin has a tremendous chin and his knockout power is likely unlike anything that Pacquiao has seen in his career.  Arum adds that even at welterweight, Pacquiao is already on the smaller side.  “He isn't even a welterweight really let alone a middleweight. His best fighting weight is 140, at 147 I think he’s pretty much outsized by all the good welterweights,” said Arum.  Pacquiao’s long-time coach and trainer Freddie Roach also expressed his concerns about the Filipino boxing icon going up to 160-pounds.  Pacquiao has once again become a popular dream-fight target following his 2019 performances, especially against the erstwhile-undefeated Keith Thurman.  Pacquiao, who was older than Thurman by a full decade during their July encounter, showed that he could still compete with the division’s best as he outboxed and outpointed the American for 12 rounds to capture the WBA (Super) Welterweight Championship.  Arum believes however, that the Thurman win can’t be considered a barometer for Pacquiao’s performance.  “I know he fought Keith Thurman, who had lost his desire to fight and had been out so long, but he would have a real test against Terence Crawford or Errol Spence, guys like that,” Arum stated.  “Maybe he could beat them, I don’t know. He thinks he can, but to go up any higher would be silly,” he added.  Arum previously discussed a possible welterweight superfight between Pacquiao and Crawford and hopes to be able to bring that to the Middle East......»»
