PEŅALOSA BENEFITS FROM JACA FIGHT CANCELLATION

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

18 Oct 2006

Former world super flyweight champion Gerry Peņalosa will benefit from the last-minute cancellation of the WBO title fight between Jimrex Jaca and former WBC/IBF featherweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas this Sunday, Manila Time.

Viva Sports/Manila Standard Today learned that HBO had decided to move Peņalosa’s crucial battle against WBO No.1 bantamweight Mauricio Martinez, the 31 year old Latino champion, to the pay-per-view card with the title defense of WBO super bantamweight Daniel Ponce De Leon against Al Seeger replacing the Marquez-Jaca fight as the main event.

Peņalosa’s wife Goody in an overseas telephone conversation with Viva Sports/Manila Standard Today said the 34 year old southpaw was in “good shape” and excited about the career-defining fight. She said Peņalosa had been training hard at the Wild Card Gym of the celebrated Freddie Roach and he would leave today for El Paso Texas . She said that at the time of her conversation with The Standard, Peņalosa was not aware that the Jaca-Marquez fight had been cancelled and that he would be on PPV.

The Standard learned that HBO wasn’t happy over the fact that Jaca didn’t have a visa as of Tuesday and even if he obtained one from the US embassy yesterday he would arrive in El Paso perhaps one or two days before the Marquez fight. There were fears that because of the jet lag and reports that Jaca was some four pounds over the 126 pound limit the fight may end in a knockout and the giant boxing network was not prepared to take a risk on a pay-per-view Event and cancelled the fight.

Peņalosa has a ring record of 50-5-2 with 33 knockouts while Martinez boasts of a record of 31-6-1 with 21 KO’s.

The fights will be telecast by Solar Sports over RPN 9 beginning at 10:00 a.m. and will be followed by Viva Sports presentation of the top rated weekly boxing show “The Main Event” sponsored by Tanduay, the No.1 Rhum. The Main Event will feature the controversial bout between undefeated Indonesian minimum weight No.1 Sofyan Efendi and southpaw Steve Dimaisip.
