TAGPUNO JR TAKES FEROCIOUS DOWN UNDER
It's the ignominious start to a pro boxing career that many dread.
It's the reason why all managers and promoters give their fighters easybeats when they first debut as professionals.
But there was no such soft path for "Ferocious" Fernando Tagpuno, who was to suffer defeats at his first two bouts when he met top flight Jonniel Laurente (8-1) and Daniel Nicolas (7-2).
The losses would make many question their career choice, but for Tagpuno Jr, he was simply emboldened.
VSP commented at the time that the performances were great, and despite the losses, this young fighter has a big future.
But Fernando Tagpuno needed to respond, and he did so, with FEROCIOUS intent.
Tagpuno siezed those early lessons, and then used them to batter 7 subsequent opponents !!
THAT'S SEVEN KNOCKOUTS IN A ROW !
And there are some pretty decent names in that hit list !
"Ferocious" Fernando has been rewarded for his escalating displays of violence with a title shot on March 23rd in Australia.
He is slated to take on outstanding indigenous prodigy Dana Coolwell for the IBO InterContinental Featherweight title in a bout that should blow the rafters off the Caloundra RSL Club.
"Deadly" Dana Coolwell rates as one of the most precocious talents in Aussie boxing, and was controversially defeated for a World Youth title while amasssing a 12-2 record. He is skilled, slick, and reminiscent of a young Paul Fleming.
The contrasting style of Tagpuno Jr will make it interesting - he brings pressure, and when he comes to your front door, he doesn't forget to knock. And he KNOCKS LOUD !!!
Great match up - Ferocious Fernando Tagpuno Jr v Deadly Dana Coolwell. Saturday March 23rd.
