DUNO TO GET HERO?S WELCOME IN GENSAN MARCH 22

NEWLY-CROWNED World Boxing Council (WBC) Youth Intercontinental lightweight champion Romero ?Ruthless? Duno, who recently scored a sensational second round knockout against previously unbeaten Mexican Christian ?Chimpa? Gonzales in Los Angeles, will be given a hero?s welcome in General Santos City on March 22.
Duno and Sanman Promotions Chief Executive Officer Jim Claude Manangquil are arriving at 9 a.m. aboard a Philippine Airlines from Manila.
They will fly from Los Angeles on March 20 going to Manila.
Duno?s manager Dexter ?Wang Yu? Tan, Chief Finance Officer of Sanman, who also watched the fight last week, is arriving home earlier.
?There will be a motorcade before Duno will pay a courtesy call to our beloved City Mayor Ronel Rivera,? said Manangquil in a text message.
Duno has been trained by former world champion Rodel ?Batang Mandaue? Mayol at the Wild Card Gym of Sen. Manny Pacquiao?s chief trainer Freddie Roach since December.
Duno, 21, first knocked down the hometown favorite Gonzales in the opening round with a right straight on the chin. But Gonzales of Buena Park, California, was saved by the bell.
In the second round, Duno again landed a vicious wild punch to send again Gonzales down on the canvas. Gonzalez tried to stand up but was still wobbly on his feet prompting referee Thomas Taylor to stop the fight in 57 seconds of the second round.
Duno now has a record to 13 wins with 12 knockouts and only one loss. -- LITO DELOS REYES
