Nguyễn Văn Hải: A Real "Hit" at VSP PRO

Vietnam has recently seen the emergence of some great fighters, and Nguyen Van Hai is undoubtedly one of the greatest among them. The "Hanoi Hitman" is set to grace the ring once again, this time at VSP PRO #3 in HCMC. Fans are eagerly waiting for his showdown with promising young northern boxer Ha Minh Tuan, who has already made a mark with an impressive debut win in February at VSP PRO #2.

Nguyen Van Hai is a force to be reckoned with, and his appearance at Fortunes of War in Ho Tram last December was a testament to that fact. In a dominating performance, stopping unbeaten Indonesian prospect Paisal Panjaitan.

It's not just his impressive win record that makes him stand out, but his boxing skills and style that sets him apart from the rest. He has a deadly combination of speed, agility, and power that make him a dangerous opponent for anyone who dares to face him in the ring.

His upcoming bout at VSP PRO is a testament to his dedication and hard work. Fans are eagerly waiting to see him in action once again, and with his impressive track record, it's hard not to feel excited.

Nguyen Van Hai is a true icon in the world of Vietnamese boxing, and his legacy will undoubtedly continue for many years to come.

BACONAJE SET TO SILENCE GEN SAN

Arnel Baconaje takes the show on the road, when he heads to General Santos City for a national title bid on Sunday February 26th.

"The Silencer" faces top local prospect Presco Carcosia (10-2) for the Philippines national super featherweight title. Success guarantees the winner a top 10 ranking with the OPBF.

Arnel Baconaje has been in great form, having competed recently in Vietnam in December 2022.

Despite competing above his weight class, the pinoy turned in a fantastic performance in his bid for the IBF Asia Lightweight title.

In a match that could have gone either way, Baconaje lost narrowly on points on two cards, and was given a draw on another. It was an epic contest, and a valiant effort by Vietnam's Dinh Hong Quân, but there were many in attendance that thought the win should have gone to The Silencer.

You can watch the match here and judge for yourselves.  It is the brand of Arnel Baconaje action that will be heading to GenSan next week and winning a national title !

CHAMP SUAREZ DROPS IN TO SEE THE BOSS

Nation’s pride in professional boxing, the unbeaten (14-0-0) Charly “King’s Warrior” Suarez paid a courtesy call on GAB Chairman Atty. Richard S. Clarin at Games and Amusements Board (GAB) Office in Makati City.

The PH Army boxer Suarez won his fight against Indonesian Defry Palulu last December 10, 2022 in Vietnam for the vacant IBF Asia Super Featherweight Title by a Technical Knock-Out in the 2nd Round of a 12-Round bout.

Suarez (IBF no. 8 ) is slated to fight against a tough opponent Australian champion Paul Fleming (IBF no. 13) who has a record of 28-0-1. The clash of both undefeated boxers will be held in Australia on March 17, 2023.

Chairman Clarin personally praised the multi-awarded Suarez for his unblemished record. Knowing that every boxer who fights abroad has individual specific issues, Chairman Clarin pointed out that, among other assistance, GAB, through the GAB Legal Division headed by Atty. Ermar Benitez, is more than willing to provide legal support especially with contract negotiations.

Suarez openly shared his experiences in professional boxing and very much appreciate the dedication of GAB in coming up with fair contract agreement for fights abroad, simplification of  document processing, protection of boxers by fair matchmaking, and provision for other benefits to professional boxers.

Chairman Clarin concluded the meeting with words of encouragement to the boxing champ with assurance of full support to all Filipino boxers here and abroad.

PREY BECOMES THE PREDATOR!

When we enlisted @anhnquan to fight against @markjohn_yap on an exhibition match during #FortunesOfWar event at #grandhotram, we wondered if this Vietnamese debutant can even survive the first 2 rounds against a veteran boxer such as Mark John Yap who has had 48 professional fights with 31 wins and 50% KO rate! Yap also held OPBF champion title 3 times! The result was completely unexpected as Quan turned the table around and often stalked the former champion around the ring. This kid has got talents!

WHO IS NEXT FOR CHAMP CHARLY SUAREZ ?

Philippines' greatest boxer Charly Suarez recently secured the IBF Asia belt, and by defeating Indonesia’s top rated Defry Palulu (WBC Asia champion) he was elevated to #8 in the world ranking by the International Boxing Federation.

Suarez has progressed through the professional ranks at breakneck speed, winning 14 in a row, and picking up WBA, IBF and RP National belts in the process. He is also now ranked at #4 in the latest OPBF rankings.

Suarez will look to defend his IBF title, and was originally mooted to meet Japan's top rated Super Featherweight Yoshimutsu Kimura.

Kimura was viewed as a solid offensive fighter with poor defense, and not a serious challenge for Suarez. This viewpoint proved accurate when Kimura was knocked out last week in a non title bout in Tokyo.

The focus has now moved to a fighter that VSP are a huge fan of - the unbeaten Australian champion Paul Fleming.

The proud indigenous prodigy dubbed "Showtime" has an amazing record of 28 and 0 with 18 knockouts,  and brings an electric brand of high octane energy to the ring that fans just love.

Fleming also holds IBF, WBA, WBC and IBO regional belts, and like the King's Warrior, is gunning for a world title shot.

Sounds perfect !

This good looking Korean boy is only 19 years old, but already racked up 9 straight professional wins, including 5 KOs.

He is fearless and rapidly improving with every fight.

Already ranked No.3 in Korea, it won't be long before his name is listed amongst the champions. He joined our last event Fortunes of War on Dec 10, 2022 @thegrandhotram and we would love to have him in our future matches.

NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION FOR PABUSTAN

Mindanao's Jetro Pabustan will kick start his 2023 campaign with a Manila bout on January 30.

The Silent Operator has made no secret of his ambitions to work toward a title fight again, and is working hard to get the year started on the right foot.

MARK JOHN YAP TO BLAST MANILA JAN 30

One of the Philippines best performed international fighters of recent years Mark John Yap will treat boxing fans to the best new year's present possible - a Manila appearance on January  30 as a prelude to looking towards bigger overseas fights in 2023.

Yap returned home and put in a high quality performance in a WBA title clash with Charly Suarez, before overcoming PNG hard man Junior Kauko Raka in October of this year.

More recently, the star pinoy featured in a big show in Vietnam where he battled young gun Phan Minh Quân. The bout was unfortunately stopped due to an accidental head clash, with the cut requiring the CDO boxer to be stitched after the fight.

Not one to be deterred easily, Mark John Yap has informed that he will be in killer form on January 30 and he advises potential opponents - beware the Journey Man!

MARK JOHN YAP GETS A TORRID WELCOME

Philippines Mark John Yap received a solid workout at Fortunes of War, a great bout unfortunately cut short in round 3 due to accidental head clash.

Yap and Vietnam opponent Phan Minh Quân both enjoyed good moments early on, with the pinoy star getting a cut above the right eye very late in round one.

The Philippines boxer got the best of the second round, and the fighters followed that with toe to toe action, only to be halted by the ring doctor shortly after.

This was a great display by former HCMC youth boxer Quân, who clearly relished the challenge of fighting an established star like Mark John Yap.

HANOI HITMAN DROPS A ROUND ONE BOMB !

Hanoi strong man Nguyễn Văn Hải made an impressive return to the professional arena, stunning unbeaten Indonesian Paisal Panjaitan with a stoppage victory.

The bout began quite evenly, with the visitor boxing carefully, and even dictating ring position, but then BOOM!

The Indonesian fighter began to launch heavy shots at Nguyễn Văn Hải, and found himself side on to his Vietnam nemesis. Quick to sieze the moment, Hải unleashed a perfect left hook to surprise the chin of Panjaitan.

It was a superb performance from Nguyễn Văn Hải against a confident and unbeaten opponent. His distance and timing were a big improvement on his loss in Manila, which was also against an unbeaten prospect named Jerald Into.

The Hanoi champion advances to 3 wins and 1 loss, and appears a potential professional star for Vietnam boxing.

CHARLY SUAREZ SHOWS ASIA HE'S THE BOSS

Last night in Vietnam, Philippine Army enlisted personnel Charly Suarez won the IBF Asia title with an impressive but unfortunate victory.

The King's Warrior boxed just two rounds with Indonesia’s champion Defry Palulu and undoubtedly looked all class and set the scene for a spectacular battle.

Unfortunately, in the second round, southpaw Palulu suffered some eye damage that required the ring doctor to stop the fight.

Charly Suarez is now confirmed ruler of Asia, owning both the WBA and IBF belts.

Before joining the Army's regular duty in July 2022, Private Suarez was a reserve Staff Sergeant, as may be remembered.

Private Suarez was named WBA Asia's Boxer of the Month for March 2022. Suarez competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics in Brazil and won gold medals in various boxing events at the Southeast Asian Games in 2009, 2011, 2019, and 2022.

His coach is army reservist 1st Lieutenant Delfin Boholst.

SUAREZ SCARES OFF HENRY LEBRON TEAM

The Philippines' Charly Suarez always looks great in sparring, but apparently a session where the King's Warrior was "on fire" was witnessed by the coach of Henry Lebron - and was enough for them to immediately pull out of their world title eliminator next Saturday night.
Lebron has now been consigned to the "Top Rank Scaredy Cat" bench warmers list, and will be replaced by Luis Coria 15-6 in what is Suarez return from a broken hand last August. 
A win for Suarez will guarantee him a world title eliminator at his next outing - and you can bet your bottom dollar it won't be Henry Lebron in the other corner !

SUAREZ BACK BETTER THAN EVER

The Philippines' best boxer Charly Suarez resumes next Saturday on a big Top Rank show in Corpus Christi Texas - 8 long months after sustaining a broken hand in August of last year. 
Despite looking comfortable in a lopsided decision win, Suarez actually did the damage in round one against tough Yohan Vasquez, and was forced to fight the remainder of their bout in southpaw. 
An incredible effort !
The King's Warrior Charly Suarez last fought in Vietnam in December 2022 (hence the Christmas tree !) and followed up his win at Ho Tram with a 4 title win in Australia over unbeaten star Paul Fleming. 
Suarez has been promised a world title eliminator bout if successful in next week's American bout, and all his friends at VSP wish him a career defining performance on that big stage.
Good luck Charly boy !

The countdown is on !
The Philippines' Mark John Yap and Botswana's Moabi Ngaka will be banging it out in 10 days time to decide the World Boxing Foundation International title.
And both countries are supremely confident of capturing the prestigious prize !

Those in the Yap camp say that this is the lightest they have seen the Journey Man prior to a big fight, and that his training has seen the experienced warrior ascend to new levels.
Moabi Ngaka is famed for his cardio, and has been reeling off 20km runs in amongst a torrid twice daily training schedule of sparring multiple partners at each session. 
This will very definitely be a battle of Mark John Yap's experience and power versus the speed, movement and endurance of the younger and taller Moabi Ngaka. 
But as they say, two dogs - one bone !!

VENGEANCE HAS A NEW NAME

Arnel Baconaje "The Silencer" has been one of the Philippines' outstanding boxers of recent years, and will get the opportunity to take his talents to an international stage later this month.
The Silencer will meet the man that many regard as the best prospect in Botswana - Steven Bagwasi. 
This boxing prodigy has a 9-1 record, and is touted as a future world star by those in the know.
But Arnel Baconaje is not one for reputations, and whilst respectful of his quality opponent, is certainly not daunted. The RP National champ sees a spot for himself on the world stage, and knows that an emphatic win over a star like Bagwasi will cement his position. 
Baconaje has been the victim of some horrible decisions in the last couple of years, so on the road against Steven Bagwasi, he will leave nothing to chance.
"I know I have to hurt him to get his respect. 
This is my first time to fight an African, so I'm very excited. Tell him the Silencer is coming!"

THAI HOANG HUY A VSP PRO ALUMNI

Former Muay Thai student Thai Hoang Huy ranks as one of the most active boxers in Vietnam, despite only embarking upon the sport a mere 18 months ago.
After an exhibition bout at Ho Tram, Huy decided to enter the professional ranks in 2O23, and despite his inexperience, won 4 of 6 bouts.

They say that boxing is a sport that affords you the opportunity to learn a lot about yourself whilst forging enduring friendships, and Huy has been fortunate to already share the ring with boxers from the Philippines and Africa. 
It's in that regard that he enjoyed a lucky break.

 Whilst competing in an event at Ho Tram, Huy was matched with Botswana's gun Moabi Ngaka.
Despite losing that bout, Thai Hoang Huy did enough to impress his African opponent, and he invited the Vietnam boxer to his country to compete on an international stage.
The RUMBLE IN THE OKAVANGO sees African nations take on an Asian Team comprising Vietnam, Philippines, China and India - and Thai Hoang Huy has earnt himself a "wildcard" spot at the event !

Huy will meet Zambia 🇿🇲 prospect David Kapusu, a man touted as a future African champion, in the opening bout of the show. Kapusu was a quality amateur before turning pro, and won his debut in promising fashion. 
This is a significant test for Thai Hoang Huy, but a great honour to be opening an iconic International event, and as a former alumni, VSP wishes him lots of luck in Botswana on March 30th.

TWO WEEKS TO GO - TAGPUNO IN AUSTRALIA 

Ferocious Fernando Tagpuno heads south to the sunny shores of Queensland with a singular intent - to dismantle one of the hottest prospects in Aussie boxing - Mr. Dana Coolwell.

The story goes like this :

TAGPUNO JR TAKES FEROCIOUS DOWN UNDER
It's the ignominious start to a pro boxing career that many must dread. 
Abd 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.

All three pinoy have significant tasks ahead.
JonJon Estrada takes on South African champion Jeff Magagane in the featherweight class.
Arnel Baconaje meets Steven Bagwasi, arguably the best boxer P4P in Botswana.

"BACONAJE WILL THINK HE'S IN WITH A LION"

Take that sucker !
Steven Bagwasi confirms his status as one of, if not the, hottest properties in Botswana boxing, handing out another one sided beating.
Bagwasi will face Philippines super featherweight champion Arnel Baconaje at Maun Stadium on March 30th, and he is looking forward to the task with laser focus. 
The boxer from Mahalapye was on the sidelines in 2023, but prior, had built an imposing 9-1 record. His lone loss was way back in 2018 by way of points to South Africa's champion Ayanda Nkosi (who was also WBF World Champion) 
Many in Africa have a huge opinion of Steven Bagwasi, and likewise, he is a boxer with self belief. 
"I will take Arnel Baconaje on a wild safari. When we are done, he will be thinking he is surrounded by lions. I am really looking forward to this one."

The two boxers will contest the World Boxing Foundation International title - a main event contest over 10 rounds to decide the Super Featherweight champion.
And the task for Ngaka is daunting to say the least !

Despite being a talented member of the national team in Botswana, he has literally had to jump at the very limited pro opportunities that have come his way, amassing a 3-1 record. And if you include his bouts not listed in BoxRec, he is already 7-1. 
There is no doubt that Moabi Ngaka has the makings of quality international boxer. 
But against Mark John Yap - REALLY ? 

It's just impossible to see that he has the experience to go with a man that has 17 years in the pro ranks, had an unbeaten run of 10 wins in Japan over 3 years where he tore some of their very best to shreds. Yap picked up three OPBF titles in a winning run that was finally ended in a points loss to world rated #2 Takuma Inoue.

But here's the interesting footnote - Moabi Ngaka specifically asked for the task ! There were a number of easier opponents that the African boxer could have taken, but he chose the Philippines Journey Man instead. 

"I want Mark John Yap !! He is a warrior, so am I - so lets GO TO WAR ! 
I'm not here to play around, I train hard, and I fight harder. I want to test myself with real fighters, and they don't come any more real than Yap."

Those close to the Botswana boxer share his belief, and say he is ripe to pull off a big upset against his Philippines rival. Ngaka is renowned for his cardio and loose movement in the ring, and they are of the opinion that Yap will be air swinging on old legs in later rounds.

"I want everyone to tune in on March 30th - I will say that this will be a war, and I will drop Mark Yap. Maybe more than once. They will all be saying that the EAGLE HAS LANDED."

BACONAJE TO TAKE ON AFRICAN STAR

Classy Elorde boxer Arnel Baconaje will head to Botswana next month as part of a formidable Asian Team that will do battle with African nations. 
"The Silencer" will take on Steven Bagwasi - a boxer that many rate as one of the most outstanding talents in Botswana. 
Bagwasi has 8 wins on his resume, with only one loss, which was back in 2018 to South Africa's national champion Ayanda Nkosi.
But to tame a lion like Bagwasi, plenty of hard work and lots of skill will be required, and Arnel Baconaje "The Silencer" was working on both today. Mixing it up with Arnel in sparring at Elorde was Japanese visitor Reito Takahashi, a highly promising 135lb fighter.

WOLVERINE HEADS TO THE AFRICAN DELTA

Crowd pleasing brawler JonJon "the Wolverine" Estrada heads for the depths of Africa next month, when he stars at the RUMBLE IN THE OKAVANGO show on March 30th. 
Estrada will take on the sharp shooting Jeff Magagane, a man who has long been touted as one of South Africa's major talents. 
The boxer was rated as high as #1 at various stages of his career, but lack of consistency of regular bouts have conspired against him winning a major title.
Jeff Magagane goes by the ring name of "911" - which gives some obvious insights into his style, but this boxer is much much more. 
He is tall, rangy, has great hands, and is really adept out of both stances. He mixes his speed and delivery so well that when he is "on", he is equal parts deceptive as he is elusive. And with only one fight in 2023, Magagane is determined to post an emphasis performance against Estrada and get back into the world rankings. 
As for JonJon Estrada - well,it's business as usual ! 
He is well versed with taller and faster opponents - he will be a dangerous snake in the grass waiting to strike. This is a significantly important match for Estrada, and he is expected to be a heavy underdog in this bout.
But as you know with the heavy handed Wolverine - simply learn to expect the unexpected !!

VSP PRO "CLASSROOM" TO THE BIGTIME

Thai Hoang Huy gets rewarded for his improving performances in 2O23 with his first bout outside of the country. 
Huy only began boxing 18 months ago, and was inspired to try the professional game after contesting an exhibition bout with Philippines' JonJon Estrada. The Wolverine gave him encouragement to keep training and stay busy, and he took the advice from the experienced Estrada. 
Thai Hoang Huy has since won 4 from 6 in 2O23, yet it was in his most recent bout, that he got a lucky break.
Despite losing to Botswana champion Moabi Ngaka, the African liked what he saw, and requested for Huy to have an opportunity to fight abroad in Botswana. 
RUMBLE IN THE OKAVANGO affords that opportunity, and on March 30th, Huy will join 3 other Vietnam 🇻🇳 boxers in an Asian team that will tackle the African nations. 
Thai Hoang Huy meets Zambia 🇿🇲 hotshot David Kapusu, a quality prospect that won impressively at his debut.
VSP wish Thai Hoang Huy lots of luck with his fight in Botswana - draw your inspiration from the LIONS !

THE RUMBLE JUST KEEPS ON GETTING BETTER

Team Africa just received a huge boost with breaking news that Kagiso Bagwasi will be joining the fray at RUMBLE IN THE OKAVANGO. 
Bagwasi is a 5-0 pro and a former amateur standout. 
The Botswana boxer started his professional career in blazing fashion, winning three bouts in quick succession before calamity struck.
Bagwasi was the victim of a vicious knife attack, leaving him unconscious and in need of multiple surgeries.
It was doubtful whether the talented welterweight would be able to resume his career after bicep damage incurred in the incident, but Bagwasi shed the drama like it was a second skin. It's perhaps why he has earned the ring name "Reptile" !!
Kagiso resumed in 2O22,  and has been in stunning form - a shutout victory followed up by a stunning knockout win ( both on the road in Johannesburg) endorsed that the Reptile was better than ever !
This signing is a huge coup for Team Africa, and it will take a supernatural performance from any opponent to beat Kagiso Bagwasi on his home turf !

"MARK YAP WILL DROP. THIS IS WAR !"

The main event boxer that will face the Philippines' Mark John Yap has made the bold prediction that he will drop his counterpart at least once in next month's headliner.
This is a view that's endorsed by many in Africa that think Yap will age overnight, and that he doesn't have the speed or legs to go with his younger opponent. 

"Africa is different man. It's really hot here, we are used to it. And we have lots to deal with every day, fighting is what we love, and to have old men come to our backyard and beat us ? C'mon man, that just not gonna happen. 
Yah eish we are lions and we hungry !
Yap is a good fighter, but he won't be good against me. But respect - I know he will try hard, he will do his best to make it good for the people watching"

Moabi Ngaka heads a team of 11 boxers from the African nations of Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and Zimbabwe to fight in Maun on March 30th. 
Mark John Yap and Moabi Ngaka will compete for the World Boxing Foundation title at 130lb.

HAFENI NGESHEYA: "OKAY - LET'S RUMBLE !"

The African nations are renowned for their athletic talent, and RUMBLE IN THE OKAVANGO will showcase many of the continent's best emerging stars.
Namibia 🇳🇦 Lightweight prospect Hafeni Ngesheya is known in his country as "The Mexican" - courtesy of his dogged and relentless style, and his penchant for body assaults.
The 25 year old was one of the first boxers selected for Team Africa, a squad that comprises countries South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and Zambia.
Ngesheya is unbeaten in his professional career, boasting 6-0 with 3 knockouts on his resume, and he is just getting started ! 
RUMBLE IN THE OKAVANGO presents another exciting challenge and opportunity for the Namibian prospect, who was impressive in his two wins in the back end of 2023.
And the challenge and opportunity are extremely real (and formidable) - Ngesheya will take on the "Hanoi Hitman" Nguyen Van Hai - a real cornerstone for Team Asia.
But Namibia 🇳🇦 are known for great fighters, and you have to suspect that when Hafeni Ngesheya steps into that ring on March 30th, we will be left in no doubt as to why this hot prospect is called THE MEXICAN !!

 Former opponents - Vietnam's Thai Hoang Huy and Botswana's Moabi Ngaka, will meet again next month at a huge celebration of boxing in Africa.

Moabi "The Eagle" Ngaka is scheduled to fight the main event, a WBF International title match with one of the Philippines best performed international stars - Mark John Yap. 
Thai Hoang Huy will be the least experienced of four Vietnam boxers who have been included in the TEAM ASIA squad. 
Despite taking up boxing only 18 months ago, Huy has wasted no time, racking up 4 wins in 6 bouts in the space of a year. Not one to avoid a challenge, Huy will appear in the opening match against Namibia's highly promising David Kapusu, who scored impressively at his much awaited debut.

ESTRADA PICTURE PERFECT AT WEIGH-IN

VSP regular JonJon "the Wolverine" Estrada returns to the ring in Pasay City Manila tomorrow night. 
The cult status boxer has fought on many VSP shows in Manila, and also performed in an exhibition bout at Ho Tram Vietnam in late 2022 against local hopeful Thai Hoang Huy. 
Estrada was controversially beaten by split decision against top level Jhon Gemino at his most recent outing, after having a point deducted for landing a "low blow".
The Wolverine is desperate to make amends for that "loss", so expect carnage in tomorrow's bout with Alvin Medura.

WOLVERINE BACK AT THE "OFFICE"

JonJon Estrada in inimitable form at the weigh-in just moments ago, ahead of tomorrow night's great card in Pasay City. 

Estrada takes on the heavy handed Alvin Medura in a 6 round featherweight bout.
This is expected to be a smorgasbord of unbridled violence, as the Wolverine looks to redress a contentious last start defeat at the hands of Jhon Gemino. 
A knockout result by either fighter would be no surprise, with the Wolverine being favoured to be last man standing !

Estrada will stay busy in 2024 - next month he heads to Botswana to be part of an All Stars Asian team that will fight African nations in the RUMBLE IN THE OKAVANGO on March 30th.

BOTSWANA SET TO WELCOME THE WOLVERINE

 JonJon Estrada has some of the heaviest hands in the Philippines - and has the knockout stats to cure anyone's insomnia !
The predatory featherweight isn't known for his subtlety ot silky skills, but moreso for his ability to club opponents into submission. 
And he's good at it too - 82% of the Wolverine's 17 victims have ended in a slumber. 
Estrada fights heavy handed Alvin Medura next week in a prelude to a big international bout in the African jewel of Botswana on March 30th. And whilst it never pays to overlook an opponent, the Wolverine is planning to make Medura feel the wrath of a man who was controversially "beaten" at his most recent bout.
Estrada took on the high ranking Jhon Gemino in a rugged bout where he appeared to significantly outwork and outland Gemino, only to have a point deducted controversially for a low blow. The penalty made the difference, and the Wolverine was edged by split decision. 
The Wolverine has vowed to make a statement in Pasay City next week, and then turn his attention to the Okavango delta.
JonJon Estrada will be part of a team out of Asia that will go head to head with some of Africa's most exciting fighters. 
As for excitement, fans of the Wolverine know, he never fails to bring the BIG DRAMA SHOW !

YAP PUTTING MILES IN THE LEGS FOR AFRICA

African boxers are famed for their athleticism, their cat like reflexes, but even moreso, their crazy endurance.
Their boxers have great lungs, which makes them ever so hard to beat in longer fights.
And Mark John Yap heads to Botswana on March 30th for a leg sapping 10 round classic with local star Moabi Ngaka. 
Ngaka is fabled for his cardio, and rises at 4am to knock off 20km road runs before the sun beats hard. 
Well two can play at that game !
The "Journey Man" Mark John Yap competed in the Cagayan de Oro "marathon" earlier today, landing a top five finish in the 10km road race. And the good news is, he was doing his best work at the finish. 
Yap will spearhead a top international team in Botswana Africa next month, and is adament that he will have the legs to go with a younger and hungry Moabi Ngaka. 
Ngaka has already raised eyebrows stating he will drop Yap, and make a statement win that will shock Asia.
But dropping Yap will be no easy feat !
Mark John Yap has 34 wins on his resume, with his only losses in recent years being against unbeaten and world rated opponents. Often these were bouts taken at extremely short notice, or out of his weight class. He also has plenty of firepower of his own, sending 17 opponents to the canvas.
The war of words has only just begun !

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.

DINH QUAN vs YOJI SAITO

Kể từ "biến cố" với chiếc cân dẫn tới việc phải từ bỏ chiếc đai vô địch IBF Châu Á hạng nhẹ (lightweight, 61kg) hồi cuối năm 2022, Đinh Hồng Quân đã không có thêm một lần thượng đài nào trong hơn một năm vừa qua.

Thế nhưng, có một điều chắc chắn anh đã khẳng định trong lần thượng đài tiếp theo: lên hạng super-lightweight (63,5kg).

Ở trận đấu trở lại tại WBO Title Match: War in Paradise ngày 13 tháng 1 tới đây, Quân sẽ chạm trán đối thủ Yoji Saito - võ sĩ 28 tuổi người Nhật Bản đang được xếp hạng 2,5 sao trên BoxRec. 

Nhìn qua bảng thành tích, Yoji Saito đang sở hữu 5 trận thắng - 4 trận thua cùng 2 kết quả hòa. Điểm đáng chú ý ở tiểu sử của võ sĩ người Nhật Bản chính là việc anh đều kết thúc các đối thủ trong những trận thắng của mình, và mới chỉ bị knockout một lần hồi tháng 3 năm ngoái.

Vậy, Đinh Hồng Quân có lợi thế nào trước tay đấm người Nhật.

Đầu tiên, Yoji Saito là võ sĩ thường xuyên thi đấu ở hạng super-featherweight, 59kg). Tức ở màn so tài sắp tới, anh sẽ phải tăng hai hạng cân, trong khi Quân chỉ phải lên một hạng cân.

Thứ hai, Đinh Hồng Quân đã trải qua các trận đấu kéo dài từ 10 tới 12 hiệp trong ba lần thượng đài gần nhất. Do đó, thể lực ở cuộc đối đầu kéo dài 8 hiệp sắp tới cùng Yoji Saito sẽ không phải vấn đề quá lớn.

Đó là thông tin trên bảng thành tích. Về thực tế, Yoji Saito là võ sĩ có lối đánh tấn công vũ bão ngay từ những hiệp đầu trận. Bằng chứng là 5 trận thắng knockout của võ sĩ này đều chủ yếu diễn ra trong các hiệp 1 và 2, trận thắng gần nhất cũng chỉ kéo dài tới hiệp 5.

Trái lại, hai trận thua gần đây của võ sĩ người Nhật Bản đều đến từ việc anh bị suy giảm thể lực trong các hiệp đấu cuối, dẫn tới việc mất thế trận hoặc bị knockout. 

Không quá khó để nhận ra, với một đối thủ ở hạng cân trên và thường xuyên đấu nhiều hiệp như Đinh Hồng Quân, Yoji Saito sẽ cố gắng tạo áp lực ngay từ đầu hòng chiếm lĩnh điểm số. Đây sẽ là thử thách cho võ sĩ của Việt Nam khi phải thích nghi lại với việc thi đấu 8 hiệp, nơi Quân không có nhiều thời gian để thăm do hay thích nghi chiến thuật như các trận tranh đai. 

WBO Title Match: War in Paradise sẽ bắt đầu lúc 16h00 ngày 13 tháng 1 theo giờ Việt Nam. Sự kiện sẽ được phát sóng trực tiếp trên các nền tảng của Fanpage - Youtube của Webthethao.vn

Đinh Hồng Quân

Đinh Hồng Quân là một trong những võ sĩ chuyên nghiệp nổi bật của Boxing Việt Nam. Tay đấm sinh năm 1998 từng giành chức vô địch IBF Châu Á năm 2022 với một trận bảo vệ đai thành công.

Đối thủ của Hồng Quân sẽ là võ sĩ người Nhật Bản Yoji Saito. Đây là tay đấm đã có 5 chiến thắng sau 10 lần thượng đài. Đặc biệt, tất cả các trận thắng của Yoji Saito đều bằng knock-out.

Trận đấu này sẽ đánh dấu sự trở lại của Đinh Hồng Quân ở hạng cân mới là hạng Super Lightweight (63,5kg) sau khi mất đai vô địch IBF vào cuối năm 2022. Chắc chắn võ sĩ của Việt Nam sẽ rất khao khát được thể hiện mình sẽ lấy lại niềm tin từ người hâm mộ.
