PhilBoxing.com




Eight time Division World Champion Manny Pacquiao will be the Guest of Honor and Speaker when the 17th Gabriel “ Flash” Elorde Boxing Awards Banquet of Champions is held on Saturday , March 25 at the Tent of the Manila Hotel.

Pacquiao, now a Senator, will also lead the awardees in this annual awards night that will also honor 3 reigning world champions as Boxers of the Year in the Class of 2016. Marlon Tapales, the new bantamweight titleholder, Casimero, the IBF flyweight king, and Ancajas, the IBF super flyweight champion. The Awarding will also include giving honor and recognition to international, Regional and Philippine champions to coincide with the 82nd birth anniversary of Da Flash, the undisputed world junior lightweight champion from 1960-67.

Pacquiao, who was elevated to the Elorde Hall of Fame in 2012 is to receive an Award of Distinction together with Donnie Nietes also an Elorde Hall of Famer in 2015. Pacquiao is expected to talk about his plans of putting up a Philippine Boxing Commission that will finally take care of the boxers’ health and insuring the safety of the sports.

One of the highlights of the event is the casting of the fist of Pacquiao which will also have former WBO bantamweight titlist Gerry Penalosa, former WBC lightweight champion Rolando Pascua, former IBF world super flyweight titleholder Tacy Macalos and former IBF world flyweight king Dodie Boy Penalosa.

Laura Elorde, wife of Flash Elorde, will lead the presentation of major awards as well special citations to the best promoter (Jim Claude Manangquil), best referee (Danrex Tapdasan), best trainer (Jhun Agrabio), most promising boxer (Aston Palicte, WBO Oriental and IBF Superflyweight champion) and the best fight of the year between Kenny Demecillo and Rambo Lagos for the WBF Asia bantamweight championship on July 30, 2016 in Cebu).

To be honored as best male amateur fighter is Carlo Paalam, bronze medalist in the AIBA World Youth Championship.

The late Ronnie Nathanielsz, a noted trimedia writer, commentator and analyst who covered almost all important boxing bouts including those of Flash Elorde and Pacquiao and the Thrilla in Manila, and fellow journalist Hermie Rivera will be given posthumous awards.
