Arnel Baconaje is a class act, who has performed at an elite level both locally and internationally. He was even the one time sparring partner of the Japanese MONSTER Naoya Inoue, and gave him the legend a torrid time!

This Elorde boxer has really nice balance and shot selection, and appears to be improving every time he steps in the ring. He resumed from a long spell in May, and had a really comprehensive win against a good boxer named Jay Lloyd Quidlat. He followed up that good effort with a combination punch knockout over the very experienced Ivor Lastrilla in July. What was particularly impressive was the patience and poise showed by Baconaje in that outing. His opponent started strongly in what was a fairly even opening round, and then attempted to turn up the heat in the second. But Arnel Baconaje was quick to identify some openings, and quickly showed such variety to the body and head, that he was able to put an end to proceedings. And the hush that you could hear? Well, that was just the beautiful sounds of silence!  

This son of Iloilo has become known as “The Silencer”, and has drawn comparisons with James Toney, Bernard Hopkins and even Canelo Alvarez. He certainly has the tools to mix and match styles depending on the style of opponent that is in front of him. Characteristically though, Baconaje is a patient fighter, that sets his shots up well, and knows when to load up on the power and turn the lights out!

Expect to hear a lot more about Arnel Baconaje in the future – he is one of Philippines best emerging talents and destined to be a world class export! Put this guy on your WATCH LIST, you are really going to enjoy the sounds of SILENCE!
