WBO CHAMP VIC SALUDAR ATTENDS THE “DOUBLE RUMBLE” MANDAUE WEIGH-IN


PhilBoxing.com




MANDAUE CITY,CEBU – WBO world minimumweight champion Vic Saludar was a guest during the weigh-in and press conference for the “DOUBLE RUMBLE” fight card set to be held August 18 at the Mandaue City Sports and Cultural Complex. Together with fellow world title-holder Jhack Tepora (WBA interim featherweight) they wished the participating boxers good luck.

Saludar was interviewed by this writer about his victory last month in Kobe, Japan when he dethroned Ryuya Yamanaka by unanimous decision. It was a close fight from the start, with two of the three judges scoring it even after round six. Saludar, of course, had no way of knowing the scores but he sensed it was close.

“It was only after I knocked him down in round seven that I thought I could win.” Saludar said, “Still it was a tough fight all the way.”

“He kept targeting my body,” Saludar added,” I knew that was their plan, but I was ready.”

The scores of the three judges were as follows – Daniel Sandoval (USA) – 115-113, Carlos Ortiz,Jr (USA)- 116-111 and Pinit Prayadsab (Thailand) – 117-110.

Saludar lost in his first world title attempt in 2015, when then champion Kosei Tanaka stopped him with a body shot in round six.

Saludar, a father of two, is savoring his world title win. But he has no idea who he will fight next. But he hopes for a bigger payday. “I got ten thousand dollars for that fight, I was a choice defense.” He
said.

His promoter, Kenneth Rontal is awaiting word from the Japanese camp. “I am grateful for the Yamanaka camp for giving us the title shot. I am waiting if they want a rematch, I will give it to them.But as of now, I don’t know who Saludar is fighting next.”

The 27 year old Saludar (18-3,10KO’s) hails from Polomolok, South Cotabato. He was a bronze medalist in the 2010 Asian Games but missed out on a chance to represent the country in the 2012 Olympics.

“I injured my hand and had to undergo surgery,” He showed me the scar on the dorsal side of his left hand. “So it was (Mark Anthony) Barriga who went to the Olympics.” Saludar would turn pro in 2013.

This writer asked Saludar if he would be interested to represent Philippines in the Olympics, considering that pros are now allowed to join the boxing competition of the Summer games.

“I have different priorities now, I have a manager and a promoter now, I just can’t go back to the national team again.” He replied.

His older brother, Froilan Saludar, lost to WBO flyweight champ Sho Kimura of Japan in Qingdao, China by sixth round knockout a couple of weeks after Vic’s victory.

Still Kenneth Rontal commended the brothers for making history last July. “This was still history for Philippine boxing,” Rontal said during the press conference for the Mandaue City “Double Rumble” fight card that he is co-promoting with Omega Sports Promotions,
“Two brothers fought for world titles on the same month. This is our third promotion here in Cebu, I am happy that we finally produced a world champion.”

The August 18 fight card will feature two regional title bouts - Undefeated prospect Christian Araneta (15W-0L,13KO’s) of the Omega Gym is pitted against Jerry Tomogdan (25W-9L-4D,13KO’s) for the vacant WBC Asia Silver light flyweight title while Jaber Zayani (14-0,8KO’s) of France and Filipino Eduardo Mancito (16-8-2,9KO’s) will dispute the WBO Oriental junior lightweight title.

Set to appear on the undercards are former ‘Buhay Boksingero’ champions Joebert Alverez and Gerpaul Valero, Kawelo Alcos of Hawaii vs Patrick Dakay, Ponciano Rimandiman vs Arian Lerasan, Marjun Piencenaves vs Jeffrey Stella and Carlo Bacaro vs Matthew Fondales.
