By Mike Angel Lopez
PhilBoxing.com
01 Oct 2013



This coming October 26 in the beautiful scenic view of Cebu City, Philippines, the Pinoy Pride series will headline the Panamanian hard hitting Rafael “EL TORITO” Concepcion (18-6-8KO) who will try to reclaim glory in the sweet city where he won the WBA Interim World Super Flyweight Championship by beating local hero from the tough and rough barrio of Pasil, Cebu city, AJ “Bazooka” Banal five years ago on July 26, 2008.

I had the privilege to talk to “EL TORITO” this past weekend about his upcoming fight against the fast rising star of the ALA Boxing Team, Genesis “AZUKAL” Servania (22-0-8KO).


El próximo 26 de octubre en la hermosa vista panorámica de la ciudad de Cebú, Filipinas, la serie Pinoy Pride encabezará el golpear Concepción panameña dura Rafael "El Torito" (18-6-8KO) que tratará de recuperar la gloria en la ciudad dulce donde ganó el campeonato de peso mosca AMB interino súper Mundial al vencer al héroe local del barrio difícil y áspera de Pasil, ciudad de Cebu, hace AJ "Bazooka" Banal tres años 26 de octubre 2010.

Tuve el privilegio de hablar con "El Torito" este fin de semana pasado acerca de su próxima pelea contra el aumento rápido de la superestrella del boxeo Equipo de ALA, Génesis "AZUKAL" Servania (22-0-8KO).


Q & A

Lopez - Are you excited to come back to the city where you made history and won the WBA Interim World Super Flyweight Championship?

¿Estás emocionado de volver a la ciudad en la que hizo historia y ganó el campeonato de peso mosca de la AMB interino Super World?

Concepcion – YES! I am very excited!

¡SÍ! Estoy muy emocionada!

Lopez - Have you seen videos of Servania?

¿Has visto los vídeos de Servania?

Concepcion – Yes, he is a good fighter, but he has never fought anyone as strong and tough as me. He will be in the fight of his life.

- Sí, es un buen boxeador, pero él nunca ha peleado contra alguien tan fuerte y resistente como yo. Él estará en la pelea de su vida.

Lopez - Will you bring the same team as before?

¿Va a llevar el mismo equipo que antes?

Concepcion – Yes, I will bring the same trainer Rigoberto Garibaldi. He is one of the best trainers around. He has trained many champions. Rosendo Alvarez, Carlos Murillo, Guillermo Jones, Ricardo Mayorga and the best Latino ever, the great Roberto “Manos De Pierdas” Duran. I do not have the same manager, Damon DeBella. I had to terminate my business with him as he was cheating me out of my fight purses. That really hurt me emotionally and mentally as I wasn’t focused in the fight with Fernando Montiel in our world title fight.

Sí, voy a llevar el mismo entrenador Rigoberto Garibaldi. Él es uno de los mejores entrenadores de todo. Él ha entrenado a muchos campeones. Rosendo Alvarez, Carlos Murillo, Guillermo Jones, Ricardo Mayorga y el mejor latino nunca, el gran Roberto "Manos De Pierdas" Duran. Yo no tengo el mismo director, Damon DeBella. Tenía que terminar mi negocio con él mientras me estaba engañando de mi lucha bolsos. Eso realmente hacerme daño emocional y finalmente menatally ya que no me concentro en la pelea con Fernando Montiel en nuestra pelea por el título mundial.


Roberto Duran and Concepcion.

Lopez – How long have you trained for this fight?

¿Cuánto tiempo has entrenado para esta pelea?

Concepcion – I am always training.

Yo siempre estoy entrenando.

Lopez – What is your advantage over Servania?

¿Cuál es su ventaja sobre Servania?

Concepcion – I have a heart of a lion. The Filipino fans saw that in my fight against Banal, I will never give up and I have fought better boxers than what Servania has faced. Servania was exposed in his last fight against the Japanese boxer in Macau. He doesn’t have punching power.

Tengo un corazón de león. Los fans filipinos dieron cuenta de que en mi lucha contra Banal, nunca me daré por vencido y he luchado mejores boxeadores que lo que se ha enfrentado a Servania. Servania fue expuesto en su última pelea contra el boxeador japonés en Macao. El no haber poder de golpe.



(El Torito with wife Ashley and children)

Lopez – I heard you just got married for the second time.

Me han dicho que acaba de casarse por segunda vez.

Concepcion – Yes, my beautiful wife is Ashley Juarez Concepcion and I have two children, my daughter is 6 and my son is 2. My wife supports me very much and that is what is needed in this sport of boxing.

Sí, mi bella esposa es Ashley Juarez Concepción y tengo dos hijos, mi hija tiene 6 años y mi hijo 2. Mi esposa me apoya mucho y eso es lo que se necesita en este deporte del boxeo.

Lopez – What can you say about the Filipino people?

¿Qué se puede decir sobre el pueblo filipino?

Concepcion – They have boxing in their blood. They were very nice to me the last time I was in Cebu. I know I have many boxing fans in Cebu.

Tienen el boxeo en la sangre. Fueron muy amables conmigo la última vez que estuve en Cebu. Sé que tengo muchos fanáticos del boxeo en Cebu.

Lopez – Do you have some final words for Servania and the Filipino people?

¿Tiene algunas palabras finales para Servania y el pueblo filipino?

Concepcion – The Filipino people will see a great fight. I am hungry now to win the WBO Inter-Continental Super Bantamweight Title and get another world title shot. For Servania, I will destroy Servania much worse than I did to Banal. After this fight, I will be the new son of Cebu.

El pueblo filipino verán una gran pelea. Tengo hambre ahora para ganar la OMB Inter-Continental supergallo título y obtener otra oportunidad por el título mundial. Para Servania, destruiré Servania mucho peor de lo que le hice a Banal. Después de esta pelea, voy a ser el nuevo hijo de Cebu.

Lopez – Thank You Torito, good luck in your fight and may the best man win.

Gracias Torito, buena suerte en su lucha y que el mejor hombre gane.

Concepcion – You’re welcome.
