IBO CHAMP REY LORETO FILES COMPLAINT OVER UNPAID PURSE

By Manny Piñol

10 Apr 2015



International Boxing Organization (IBO) world junior flyweight champion Rey Loreto has filed a formal complaint with the Philippines Games and Amusements Board (GAB) against a South African boxing promoter who failed to pay his prize money amounting to $42,000, roughly P2-M.

Loreto, 23, filed the complaint exactly 17 days after he knocked out South African challenger Nkosinathi Joyi in East London, South Africa in the first round to successfully defend his title on March 24.

It was Loreto's first defense of the title he won in February last year by a 3rd round knockout of Joyi in Monaco.

South African boxing promoter Siphatho Handi, who is also the manager of Joyi, failed to remit the amount of $45,000 representing Loreto's purse and that of another Filipino boxer, Jetly Purisima, who fought in the undercard of the championship bout but lost a 10-round bout by decision.

Games and Amusements Board (GAB) Chairman Juan Ramon Guanzon, reacting to the complaint filed by Loreto, said the Commission will immediately communicate with its South African counterpart, Boxing South Africa, and the IBO to resolve the problem.

Handi, shortly before the weigh-in on March 23, informed me, as chief executive officer of Sonshine Sports Management which is Loreto's contractual promoter, that the financial support of the Eastern Cape Government for his boxing promotion was delayed but promised that the money would be ready by March 25.

When informed by Handi of the development, I immediately asked Loreto and his trainer, Joven Jorda, and boxer Purisima to be present during a meeting called by the South African promoter.

Present during the meeting were Handi, IBO supervisor Len Hunt, Boxing South Africa supervisor Phakamile Jacobs, the representative of the Eastern Cape Government, Loreto, Jorda, Purisima and myself.

After receiving assurances from the promoter, the BSA supervisor, the IBO representative and the Eastern Cape government representative that the purse would be paid after the fight, I asked Loreto and Purisima, if they were willing to fight even without the purse being paid before the fight.

When the boxers agreed to fight, I asked the promoter to prepare a promissory note that the purse would be transferred to my Philippine bank account on March 25.

When the money was not transferred on March 25, Handi sent an email message addressed to me, IBO President Ed Levine and IBO supervisor Len Hunt that the money from the Eastern Cape government was delayed and that the new transfer date was April 7.

Sensing that Handi could not live up to his commitment, I immediately sought the help of some South African boxing men to find South African lawyers to protect the interests of the Filipino boxers.

A South African law firm, Stan Fanaroff and Associates, has agreed to represent the boxers and their managers and promoters.

Submitted to the law firm were the fight contracts signed by Loreto and his manager, Brico Santig, and Purisima, who I represented, with Handi, and the promissory note signed by Handi.
