BUKIDNON DOES IT BETTER !

Lorenz Ladrada is one of the many talented Mindanao fighters to compete in Manila in recent events.

The participation of visitor fighters to Luzon, amidst the difficulties the Elorde team encountered to even create events during lockdown, definitely deserves special mention.

At TIGER 2O22, Tomjune Mangubat, Charly Suarez, and Ronnie Baldonado formed three parts of the two headline fights - all Mindanao boys.

Lorenz "Cerberus" Ladrada is a proud son of the mountains, hailing from Malitbog Bukidnon, so it is fantastic to see his family and friends get behind his journey, and even receive a salutation from the mayor.

Well done to Lorenz Ladrada and all the fighters that have managed to keep the faith and stay competitive in these hard times.

AISAH ALICO IS SIMPLY STRIKING !

Mindanao's Aisah "D'Striker" Alico returned from a long lay off, and a jump in weight class, only to put on a great showing at TIGER 2O22 last week.

Alico matched up with visiting fighter Linn Sandstrom, and the pair were a welcome attraction at a big day of quality bouts.

TESORO OUT TO ACE THE OPPOSITION

Jestine "the Aceman" Tesoro and Palawan's Lorence Rosas contested perhaps the closest match of the day at TIGER 2O22 UKC, and it was a tribute to both fighters to keep it a chess match till the final bell.

Southpaw Rosas began the bout extremely well, and was a convincing round one winner. His angles and head movement gave Tesoro big problems again in round two, but late in the round, clever adjustments by the Aceman made it anybody's round. It was clear by the third, that 22 year old Tesoro had solved the Rosas puzzle, and they were big winning rounds for the young fighter.

So now Rosas was the one having problems, trying to manage the height and reach advantage of his rival. But round five, the Pride of Palawan showed his ring acumen, landing some great shots to charge back into the contest.

The final round was up for grabs, and whilst both boxers got a little ragged, it's fair to say Tesoro did a sufficient job to stick and move to pinch the contest.

This was a really interesting bout, and a great result for a fast improving Tesoro. Lorence Rosas has skills and experience, and can be an awkward fight for anybody. Just ask Mike Plania !

Really good signs here for Lorence Rosas, and for the Aceman, looking forward to seeing what he can produce in coming fights.

COOL BELT !!

Big congrats to the "'King's Warrior" Charly Suarez for his iconic performance against Cebu star Tomjune Mangubat in the main event fight at TIGER 2O22.

The bout had the added prestige of a regional title, and the win by Suarez elevates him in the world rankings with the potential for bigger fights to come.

THANK YOU WBA ASIA -  COOL BELT !!

HARD FOUGHT, WELL EARNED !!

One of the best fights you will see all year!

Ronnie Baldonado puts on a truly TIGER performance, giving the Wonder Boy his biggest career challenge so far.

The prize?

A WBA Asia belt and a world ranking. This fight was hellfire (as predicted !) and Martin showed huge composure, determination, and fitness to redress the first half of the fight.

The performance of Baldonado was phenomenal, and he will be a big star for Philippines boxing.

Can't wait to see what's next for Carl Jammes Martin !  Very impressive !

MANEFISTO DELIVERS A WINNING PLAN

Jason Buenaobra returned to the winners list with an outstanding win against a rampaging Remon Basas at TIGER 2O22 Ultimate Knockout Challenge in Paranaque.

This match proved to be one of the best of the day, pitting Buenaobra southpaw skills and footwork against Basas relentless pressure and workrate.

These two fighters had a common previous foe in top Mindanao fighter Lorenz Ladrada,  

and it was really pleasing to see the improvements that they had made since those battles. Basas looked relentlessly bullish and dangerous, and displayed enhanced foot speed in the bout.

This was a fine performance by Jason Buenaobra, he worked nicely off a backfoot jab, made clever angles, and mitigated the advances of Bad Bad Basas with classy point scoring touches.

THANK YOU PHILIPPINES !


Sweden's Linn Sandstrom and Mindanao's Aisah Alico put on a great show for the fans at TIGER 2O22. For Sandstrom, it was a valuable learning fight, and for the more experienced Alico, a chance to get much needed ring time after a pandemic enforced absence. Kudos to local girl Alico, whilst short on fitness, the Swedish fighter said that she hit a lot harder than any previous opponent !

We wish the Aussie based "Sandstorm" lots of luck in her future fights, and love to see her back again in the Philippines if she is passing by.

Linn Sandstrom had a successful visit, with a round 5 win over resuming Mindanao girl Aisah Alico.

Jada made herself useful also, showing her versatility as a ring card girl for the main WBA Asia bout between Charly Suarez and Tomjune Mangubat.

The "Wonder Boy" Carl Jammes Martin about to commence his ring walk for his WBA Asia assignment with Ronnie Baldonado.

The young boxing prodigy and recent Probellum signing, advanced to 19 and 0 (16 KO) with his gritty title win.

The fight between Baldonado and Martin was a classic, with Martin overcoming an early setback, only to work back into the contest and regain ascendency later in the bout.

Big kudos to Ronnie Baldonado, he was outstanding, and he made this another memorable bout for Wonder Boy and the fans.

PHILIPPINES HAS A NEW WBA CHAMP

Charly Suarez enjoying the after glow of a super day of fights at the TIGER 2O22 Ultimate Knockout Challenge yesterday in Paranaque.

The King's Warrior played his part, winning an iconic and exciting WBA Asia title contest with freak Cebu warrior Tomjune Mangubat. It was a world class performance by the two combatants, and one that will have the world's best ducking the Philippines best fighter.

Today the champ was chilling with close friends and family of coach Delfin Boholst. And from the look of Charly's unmarked complexion, it seems coach Boholst had him pretty well trained in the art of defense !

CHARLY SUAREZ WINS KNOCKOUT

Charly Suarez is without peer in Philippines boxing.

He put on a masterclass tonight against the best young prospect in the country to claim the WBA Asia title and put the world on notice.

Tomjune Mangubat was physically imposing, and perhaps won the first two rounds of tonight's bout.

But Suarez hands and feet were so quick, and accuracy so good,  he constantly picked off an advancing Mangubat. In the end, a fatigued Mangubat was dropped in the final round, and the ref waved it off.

Suarez showed that he is far and away the best fighter in the country,  and big credit to Mangubat, he was outstanding.

He will no doubt achieve big things in the future and be a star for the Philippines.

AMAZING AND DRAMATIC !

Carl Jammes Martin pulls a Knockout in round 11 from a dominant Ronnie Baldonado in a classic.

Baldonado knocked down Wonder Boy in the second,  and dominated till the mid stages, where a resurgent Martin edged back. In the end it was Martin's fitness that prevailed, against a totally exhausted Baldonado.

BEN LIGAS WINS

Thats the way you want to see a champ defend his title!

Ben Ligas looked all class in a near shutout win over Roland Jay Biendima.  The Elorde boxer looked balanced and in control and set up beautiful combos off his enviable jab.

Biendima was one tough SOB as expected, and landed some nice shots of his own. He definitely had Ligas hurt a couple of times in this quality national championship bout.

LINN SANDSTROM WINS KNOCKOUT

Great win on foreign soil by Linn Sandstrom  against Mindanao girl Aisah Alico.

Despite showing caution, Sandstrom enjoyed the best of the action, and was the busier of the two boxers.

Aisah Alico looked comfortable Despite the fact she was largely in defensive mode, but was leveled with a decent Sandstrom body shot in the fifth round.

Nice win for the Swedish born Aussie Linn Sandstrom who says she LOVES THE PHILIPPINES !

ARNEL BACONAJE WINS

Great performance by Arnel Baconaje to win by shutout over an extremely resilient Leonardo Doronio.

Baconaje landed more frequently, and also had the power ascendancy, over a bigger opponent. He also controlled the ring with excellent movement.

It was definitely an improved version of Doronio today, he looked fit and imposing. He just struggled with Baconaje's movement,  and he will no doubt fare better with a less mobile opponent.

JINO RODRIGO WINS KNOCKOUT

Another closely fought and compelling fight between the experienced Roberto Gonzales and improving youngster Jino Rodrigo.

Gonzales put some great combinations together, but often gave points back due to being countered.

“WE BELIEVE THAT HE WILL RUN”

Omega Cebu coach Julius Erving Junco didn’t mince words at yesterday’s press conference. He believes that former Olympian Charly Suarez can’t mix it with their star, and if he does, he will lose every round or even worse – be KNOCKED OUT!  

TOMJUNE Mangubat looks to score a huge upset today, March 12, as he faces highly touted former Olympian Charly Suarez in a World Boxing Association (WBA) super featherweight title fight in the main event of “Ultimate Knockout Challenge: Tiger 2022” at The Flash Grand Ballroom of the Elorde Sports Complex in Parañaque City, Metro Manila.

The 24-year-old Mangubat is coming in as an underdog against Suarez, who has been impressive in his career as a pro.

Mangubat, however, hopes to derail the Suarez hype train and hand him his first career defeat.

“That’s what we want for him to go toe-to-toe. We believe he’ll run. They will have a bigger chance of winning if it goes the distance because it’s their promotion,” Mangubat’s coach Julius Erving “Jinggoy” Junco told SunStar Cebu. “If possible (we’ll knock him out). We could also win all the rounds and show the judges that we’re in control.”

Mangubat tipped the scales at 129 pounds, while the 33-year-old Suarez weighed-in a pound lighter at 128 pounds.

The winner of the fight could break into the WBA super featherweight rankings and step closer at a world title shot.

Mangubat is 15-2-1 with 12 knockouts, while Suarez is 9-0 with six knockouts.

BRONER LOOKS TO RESURRECT AGAINST COBBS

The Adrien Broner vs Blair Cobbs final press conference was even more wild than expected: "My n***as got guns with them. All I've gotta do is point and they're gonna blow."
It was hard to interpret Broner's rant.
Many saw that as a thinly veiled sexual reference from the gum chewing former prodigy, who has battled with compulsive disorder issues - even to the point of dry humping opponents during championship bouts
That aside, he tore off his shirt to show that Homer Simpson also comes in chocolate. 
All that aside, the salient question remains "do I still got it ?"
Blair "the Flair" Cobbs shapes as a credible enough opponent, with only one loss on his resume. 
The tall southpaw steps out for the first time since beating Maurice Hooker by UD back in 2022, but he has enough gravitas to help us guage whther there is a path ahead for the enigmatic Adrien Broner.
The two entertaining boxers will battle for their future at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood Florida this Friday night.
Friendly advice to Blair the Flair : Do not turn your back on Broner, he'd hump a table leg given half a chance.

HÀ THỊ LINH GIÀNH VÉ DỰ OLYMPIC 2024 TIẾP THEO CHO VIỆT NAM

Đứng trước cơ hội cuối cùng để giành thêm vé cho Boxing Việt Nam dự Olympic Paris 2024, nữ võ sĩ Hà Thị Linh đã không bỏ lỡ cơ hội khi góp mặt trong trận play-off hạng cân 60kg.

Đối đầu Vilma Viitanen (Phần Lan), Hà Thị Linh có hiệp 1 thi đấu tốt với những pha chủ động vào đòn tầm gần, giúp cô giành chiến thắng 10-9 trên 4 bảng điểm của các giám định.

Sang hiệp 2, Viitanen tăng áp lực khi biết bị dẫn điểm. Hà Thị Linh đáp trả bằng các tổ hợp đòn đánh nặng khi di chuyển lùi. Điểm số 20-18, 20-18, 19-19, 19-19, 19-19 trong hiệp 2 khiến cả hai ứng viên đều phải nỗ lực trong hiệp đấu cuối.

Sang hiệp 3, Viitanen tiếp tục gây sức ép với hàng loạt pha rượt đuổi và ra đòn tầm gần uy lực. Cú móc trái mạnh khiến trọng tài phải đếm với Linh. Thể lực cả hai đã giảm xuống sau nhiều pha đổi đòn. Các pha trả đòn sau đó của Linh khiến Viitanen không thể đạt được hiệu quả trong những pha tấn công. Chung cuộc, Hà Thị Linh giành chiến thắng tính điểm 4-1, mang về tấm vé Olympic Paris 2024 thứ hai cho Boxing Việt Nam cùng người đồng đội Võ Thị Kim Ánh (54kg nữ).

NGUYỄN VĂN HẢI JULY 23 SAINT PETERSBURG

The Hanoi Hitman is looking to make up for lost time, and will be back in the ring in Russia this coming July.
The beautiful Baltic city of Saint Petersburg will provide the backdrop to a compelling match up with outstanding Uzbekistan boxer Khurshidbek Rasuljonov (7-0 3KO)
23 year old Rasuljonov is a 3x national champ, a 2x Asian champ, and maintains a flawless professional record.
The bout will be a contested over 8 rounds, and represents another great opportunity for Nguyễn Văn Hải to make his mark abroad. 
The Hanoi boxer has no opportunity to shine in his home country of Vietnam unfortunately, where professional boxing appears to be in freefall right now.

HOW MANY CHAMPIONS TITLES AVAILABLE IN ASIA?

HOW MANY CHAMPIONS TITLES AVAILABLE IN ASIA? 

Did you know that there are over 50 global sanctioning organizations that offer various champion titles in the world? They are mostly private organizations that market their brand(s). However the four most recognized ones are : WBO, WBC, WBA, IBF.

Each of the above four organizations offer different regional championship titles and there are a lot of them! Here are some regional titles that may be available for qualified boxers in the Asia Pacific region.  

Note that considering that there are at least 17 weight divisions, there will be a minimum of 17 champions for each regional belt. If you add them all up, there are over 391 championship titles just for men alone. If you include all possible female champions, at least 690 championship titles are available.  

IBF (International Boxing Federations) 
1. IBF ASIA (male)
2. IBF ASIA OCEANIA (male)
3. IBF ASIA AUSTRALASIAN (male)
4. IBF INTERNATIONAL (male/female)
5. IBF INTERCONTINENTAL (male/female)
6. IBF YOUTH (male)

WBA (World Boxing Association)
1. WBA ASIA EAST (male)
2. WBA ASIA SOUTH (male)
3. WBA ASIA (male/female)
4. WBA OCEANIA (male)
5. WBA INTERNATIONAL (male/female)
6. WBA INTERCONTINENTAL (male/female)

WBC (World Boxing Council)
1. WBC FAR EAST (male)
2. WBC ASIAN SILVER (male) 
3. WBC ASIAN (male/female)
4. WBC ASIAN CONTINENTAL (male)
5. WBC YOUTH INTERCONTINENTAL (male)

WBO (World Boxing Organization)
1. WBO ORIENTAL (male)
2. WBO ASIA PACIFIC (male/female)
3. WBO GLOBAL (male)
4. WBO INTERNATIONAL (male) 
5. WBO ASIA PACIFIC YOUTH (male)
6. WBO INTERCONTINENTAL (male)

So which should you go for? What is available for the boxer is almost entirely dependent on the promoter and their preference in working with the sanctioning organizations. Do you have a preference?

DEVIN HANEY- WAS IT ALL JUST A DREAM ?

A hotly disputed "win" against Lomachenko showed the cracks. 
But his first foray against a similar sized, yet supposedly way lesser boxer, ended in total disaster - and confirmed what many had suspected. 
Haney : No weapons - No chin. 
The cloak of invincibility has well and truly been lifted on Devin Haney - who has campaigned with the appropriate ring monicker - The Dream.

Devin Haney - the over rated champ nobody wants to see again ?
*story courtesy of Boxing News 24

Devin Haney has captured world titles in two weight classes by age 25, but few fans are impressed with what he’s accomplished during his nine-year career.
Haney stepped up for the first time last month against Ryan Garcia on April 20th, and he was out of his league. He was dropped six times and lost a 12-round decision. Fans were left wondering what they had ever seen in Haney. His reputation has nosedived since, and it’s difficult for fans to view him still as a world champion. The WBC allowed Haney to keep his light welterweight title despite losing.
That performance had a devasting effect on Haney’s career, resulting in fans no longer viewing him as the #1 fighter in the 140-lb division and feeling that they’d been wrong about their previously high appraisal of him after his win against Regis Prograis last December. Before Haney’s loss to Ryan, some fans thought he’d beaten the best fighter in the weight class when he defeated the 35-year-old Prograis. I didn’t feel that way.

Watching Prograis lose to Josh Taylor in 2019 showed that he was flawed from the start. That fight showed all I needed to know about Prograis because Tyalor was always an average fighter. That’s Why Nobody Wants The Rematch Fans should want to see a rematch, but they don’t have faith in Haney that he can raise his game enough to avenge his loss to Ryan (25-1, 20 KOs).
The fans saw all they needed to, watching Ryan put Haney in trouble in the opening seconds of round one and continuing to batter him for the remainder of the fight. In the seventh, Haney was knocked down four times and seemingly saved by the referee, Harvey Dock, who inexplicably penalized Ryan for hitting on the break after he grew frustrated at the nonstop holding that was being done.
Devin was trying to stall out the round after the first knockdown, and Ryan got fed up with being held excessively and instinctively hit Haney when the referee peeled him off. No warning had been given to Ryan before the penalization.

Many fans consider Haney the weakest of the four champions at 140 because of his questionable chin and his fighting style, which involves a lot of clinching, jabbing, and moving around the ring. The other champions at 140 :
- Teofimo Lopez 
– Subriel Matias 
– Isaac Cruz 
Haney would lose to all those champions and likely get knocked out if he couldn’t clinch excessively once he was hurt, as we saw in his fight with Ryan.

GOOSEN SUPPORTS RYAN GARCIA BEING CLEAN

Acclaimed boxing trainer Joe Goosen shares his thoughts on the recent Ryan Garcia controversy. 
He also makes the interesting assertion that the talented fighter is one of the best he has ever trained ! 
*story courtesy Boxing Scene :

There is no bad blood between former fighter-trainer tandem Ryan Garcia and Hall of Fame coach Joe Goossen. 

Garcia split from Goossen after three fights last year following his knockout loss to Gervonta Davis and has since linked up with Derrick James. 

On April 20, the heavy underdog Garcia knocked down Devin Haney three times to win a majority decision. But the victory has been surrounded by controversy. 

Garcia blew weight for the 140-pound fight by 3.2 pounds, and on May 1, tests revealed that Garcia tested positive for the banned performance-enhancing substance Ostarine on the day of and the day before the fight.

Haney has since requested that the New York State Athletic Commission disqualify Garcia. 

Garcia has maintained his innocence as he awaits the results of his B-sample, and his former coach, Goossen, is backing him, too. 

“I’ve known Ryan ever since he was a teenager, and I have nothing but great things to say about him because he has a great heart,” Goossen told BoxingScene. “He’s one of the best fighters I’ve ever trained. He’s got so much talent that it’s not even funny. He’s got everything.

“I trained Ryan for two years straight and never saw anything remotely close to the same galaxy of what is being talked about now. It wasn't even talked about. Ryan would never knowingly do something like that. When he trained with me, he was dedicated. He always worked hard. Nothing about Ryan would lead me even to speculate anything in that direction. No way. Something isn't right. I can not point the finger at Ryan. None of it makes sense to me. In my wildest dreams, I cannot conceive of Ryan Garcia purposely doing anything that would endanger his career in such a way.” 

Goossen guided Garcia to wins against Emmanuel Tagoe and Javier Fortuna, but Garcia couldn’t overcome the southpaw Davis. 

Goossen envisions a promising future for Garcia once he gets back into fight mode. 

“Ryan will never lose to a right-hander,” said Goossen. “He's going to be great at 147 pounds because he won't have to kill himself to make weight. He's tall and has a big frame. It's amazing and almost frightening to see him hit bags and hit people. He's one of the fastest, smartest, hardest hitters per square inch I have ever dealt with, and that's saying something.”

BOXING VIỆT NAM KHỞI ĐẦU TỐT

Trong ngày ra quân, võ sĩ Nguyễn Văn Đương phải chạm trán một đối thủ tương đối mạnh. Đó là Jean Carlos Caicedo Pachito (Ecuador), người từng tham dự Olympic Paris.

Trước một đối thủ có trình độ và kinh nghiệm thi đấu tương đương, đại diện Việt Nam đã thi đấu chủ động. Anh tấn công từ khá sớm, đồng thời giữ cự ly mỗi khi cảm thấy đối thủ muốn chờ cơ hội phản đòn.

WHEN THE WAR IS OVER

Mexican 🇲🇽 Kenbun Torres departs the Philippines today, and bumps into last night's opponent at Ninoy Aquino - champion Reymart Gaballo. 

"I spotted my opponent walking alone through the airport
It's Reymart Gaballo !
I was full of nerves and aggression when we are together at the weigh-in - that is a fighter.
But I couldn't help but shout out to the brave man who gave me an opportunity, and swapped punches in the same ring. 
I don't know the words to express my appreciation but I shook hands and hugged.
Maybe someday we can fight again, I know Reymart is a great fighter for the Philippines. 
I want to pay respect from the bottom of my heart to Reymart Gaballo and the people that were so kind to me when I visited this special place.
Thank you. "

Vasiliy Lomachenko và Georges Kambosos Jr

Cái tên Vasyl Lomachenko không phải là cái tên xa lạ gì đối với những người yêu thích quyền anh "đẹp".

Dù ở thời kỳ đỉnh cao hay hiện tại, trước khi chuyển sang chuyên nghiệp, anh đã có 2 lần giành HCV Olympic, 1 thành tích đáng tự hào mà nhiều tay đấm trẻ hướng tới. Và chẳng cần đến trận đấu thứ ba trong sự nghiệp chuyên nghiệp của mình, Lomachenko đã trở thành kẻ thách thức các đai vô địch quyền anh thế giới, một con quái vật mà bất kỳ vị vua nào cũng dè chừng.

Trận đấu với Georges Kambosos Jr vào ngày 12/5 tới là lần thượng đài đầu tiên của Vasiliy Lomachenko (17-3 Boxing, 11 KO) kể từ thất bại trước Devin Haney hồi tháng 5/2023, cuộc đối đầu xác định chủ nhân chức vô địch tuyệt đối với 4 danh hiệu WBC, WBA, IBF và WBO đã để lại nhiều tranh cãi bởi kết quả trên bảng điểm.

Ở tuổi 36, tất cả đều hiểu rằng thời gian để Lomachenko cạnh tranh ở cấp độ đỉnh cao không còn nhiều, dù anh vẫn được biết tới như một trong các võ sĩ có kĩ thuật và bộ pháp đứng đầu làng Quyền Anh đương đai. Dù vậy, bản thân Lomachenko vẫn muốn dành sự ưu tiên trong việc giúp đỡ những người dân quê nhà Ukraine trong cuộc chiến đang diễn ra, lý do khiến anh vắng bóng suốt một năm qua.

Những chấn thương vai kể từ cuộc đối đầu với Teofimo Lopez năm 2020 cũng là nỗi lo của những người hâm mộ "Hi-Tech", bởi khả năng tấn công của tay đấm từng giành 2 HCV Olympic (2008 & 2012) đến từ việc kiểm soát trận đấu bằng số lượng đòn đấm vượt trội. Và hơn thế, đối thủ Georges Kambosos Jr của anh cũng là một cái tên có phong cách thi đấu tương tự.

Cuộc đối đầu giữa Vasiliy Lomachenko và Georges Kambosos Jr sẽ diễn ra vào sáng Chủ Nhật ngày 12/5 theo giờ Việt Nam. Webthethao.vn sẽ tiếp sóng sự kiện Boxing đáng chú ý của làng Boxing thế giới tới quý vị khán giả.

DOES MEXICAN TORRES HAVE THE "MIDAS" TOUCH ?

Without doubt the smaller man, but Mexican Kenbun Torres hits Manila in a rich vein of form, and promises nightmares for local champ Reymart Gaballo tomorrow night at the Midas Hotel and Casino.

The China boxer subsequently knocked out one of Australia's most hyped fighters - the previously unbeaten Rocky Ogden, to cement the serious claims of Kenbun Torres in tomorrow's big showdown.

DOHENY STOPS BRYL BAYOGOS IN 4TH

In the curtain raiser of the Inoue-Nery gigantic promotion at Tokyo Dome, former IBF junior feather champ TJ Doheny (26-4, 20 KOs), 121.75, decked an easy TKO victory over previously unbeaten Filipino Bryl Bayogos (7-1-1, 2 KOs), 121.5, at 2:51 of the fourth round in a scheduled eight on Monday. 
Doheny quickly caught the still nervous and stiff Filipino and dropped him with solid body shots twice in the third, and followed up so furiously that the referee called a well-timed halt in round four, when Bayogos fell down again. 
Doheny scored his fourth triumph in as many bouts in Japan since he dethroned then IBF ruler Ryosuke Iwasa on points in 2018. 
The Irishman TJ, now residing in Australia for years, is gunning for a shot at “Monster” Naoya Inoue. Doheny had been supposed to fight Inoue should Luis Nery become unavailable by any inconvenience, but it eventually didn’t materialize with Nery successfully having made weight.

Why Olympic Boxers Aren’t Wearing Headgear Anymore

SOMETHING IS MISSING from Olympics boxing this year. Did you notice? It’s lot easier to see the faces of male boxers---taunting, grimacing, or smiling in all their Olympian glory. This year, the Olympics ditched boxing headgear for the first time since 1984, making it look a lot more like professional boxing.

The decision, according to statements from amateur boxing’s governing organization---the International Boxing Association, or AIBA---came down to safety. Counterintuitively, referees had to stop matches for head injuries (aka likely concussions) more often when boxers were wearing headgear, according to an AIBA study. But whether ditching headgear actually makes boxers safer---especially from non-concussion injuries---is, well, more complicated.

“This rule change was rather surprising for lot of people. There’s still lot of research that needs to be done,” says Cynthia Bir, a University of Southern California biomechanics researcher who has evaluated boxing equipment for USA Boxing. In fact, female Olympians will still be wearing headgear in boxing, due to lack of safety data. (AIBA did not respond to requests for comment.)

What almost everyone can agree on is that foam padding does little to protect against concussions and knockout blows. Punch hard enough, and you overwhelm the foam’s ability to absorb energy. “The headgear becomes less useful and then not useful,” says Blaine Hoshizaki, a head injury researcher at the University of Ottawa.

Plus, the headgear still leaves boxers vulnerable to punches to the jaw, which are most likely to cause concussions because they whip the head around. “Boxers know that to get the knockout, you need to make the head spin,” says Bir. “Jabs aren’t going to do much.” Your brain normally sits suspended in fluid; when your head whips around, the brain whips around too, the tissue stretching and compressing. This causes concussions.

But why would wearing headgear increase the rate of likely concussions? The AIBA’s study has a few theories: Headgear makes it tougher to see, so boxers can’t dodge as well. Or perhaps headgear creates a false sense of safety and boxers take more risks. It also makes the boxer’s head a bigger target.

Another matter to consider though: Concussions aren’t the only head injuries boxers get. “A lot of the long-term consequences of repetitive head trauma may be from many, many subconcussive blows over time,” says Charles Bernick, a neurologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Bernick has been following a group of professional boxers and MMA fighters since 2011, and he’s found that even the brains of fighters who have not reported concussions exhibit damage visible in MRI scans.

These subconcussive blows, which don’t have any immediately obvious symptoms, could also lead to chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, over time. “With concussions, you can see it and you can diagnose it,” says Hoshizaki. “The challenge is the ones you don’t see, don’t feel. This is I think the scary part.” Headgear could mitigate some of these blows. But it’s hard to study because it’s hard to measure how much brain damage these subconcussive blows actually cause; the same punch might cause damage in one person but not another because of the structure of their head or neck musculature.

The AIBA has tried to get more professional in recent years---the extra “A” in the acronym is a remnant from when it had “amateur” in its name. And the group made other changes for the Olympics this year: It changed the scoring system to bring it in line with the pro boxing and allowed professionals to qualify for the games. (Though only three are competing in Rio.) Pros have a good reason to not use headgear

TOP 5 COUNTRIES WITH THE MOST PRO BOXING EVENTS.

According to Boxrec, there were 7,191 boxing events (63,573 bouts) in the past 12 months worldwide. USA 1,598 boxing events accounting for 27% of the total. That is more than the sum of the next 4 countries combined.

Boxing events are not necessarily connected to the wealth of a nation. Argentina, Mexico, and Russia are not known for their economic strength yet hosted 676, 488, and 294 events respectively in the last 12 months.  

In comparison, Vietnam hosted 12 events in the same period. With over 100 million in population and one of the largest amateur boxer population, VBO estimates that Vietnam should be hosting approximately 100~200 events per year. That is roughly 15 events per month. 

The question should be focused around how to make it easier for people to host boxing events, starting with 4 rounds of boxing focused on debuting boxers who are beginners in professional boxing. Safety of boxers are very important but often that concept is misused to scare noninformed public.  

Most injuries that boxers sustain are from three main areas:
1. Not enough rest between fights.
2. Excessive weight reduction before the fight.
3. Previous injuries that are left unattended.  

While mismatch can be a big problem, this is the fault of the referee/supervisor for not stopping the fight when needed. Unfortunately, this is one skill that can not be learned in a classroom but through experience. This is why developing high quality boxing ring officials is so important and difficult to do. No amount of training or certificates can replace actual experience in the ring. Just like boxers, officials also need consistent events to practice and sharpen their skills.

What are your thoughts to make 15 events/month a reality in Vietnam?

MATEO TAPIA READY FOR WORLD'S BEST

Mexican born Aussie Mateo Tapia came to Vietnam as a 20 year old and took on that country's fight legend Truong Dinh Hoang - a 10 times national champion and unbeaten pro. It was a hugely exciting, if not unnerving, experience for the young fighter.
Fast forward 5 years, and 16-0 Tapia is world ranked in a very hot middleweight division. 
Mateo Tapia makes his return in Sydney tonight, and will meet Keiber Gonzalez 20-0 in what will surely be a launch towards a world title run.
Good luck Mateo.

VIETNAM GUEST WINS IN AMERICAN RETURN

Charly Suarez has been a regular visitor to Vietnam. He fought an exhibition bout with Nguyễn Văn Hải at Victory8 in Hanoi, and he won the WBC belt at Ho Tram against Indonesia’s champion Defry Palulu. 
Today he was Stateside, winning his return bout in Corpus Christi Texas on a Top Rank event. Suarez broke his hand in August of last year, but resumed in style today in a near shutout win over America's Luis Coria. 
It was an emphatic performance, and likely to earn Suarez a world title eliminator shot at his next outing.

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.

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.

"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."

NGAKA TAUNTS MARK YAP TO GO TO WAR

Botswana’s Moabi "The Eagle" Ngaka " is a man well versed with the habitat of lions, and he will need to draw on all that hometown knowledge on March 30th when he steps into the ring with the Philippines' Mark John Yap. 
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 !!
