GERRY PEÑALOSA OPENS NEW BOXING GYM IN LIBIS


PhilBoxing.com




Manila, Philippines – Pinoy Boxing legend Gerry Peñalosa opened the newest branch of his self-named boxing gym at the third floor, Acropolis Building in Libis, Quezon City. The grand opening held yesterday, June 4, 2011 was attended by guests consisting of close friends of Gerry and her lovely wife Goody, and friends in the boxing circle. Notable guests were, Congressman Erbie Fabian of Zamboanga City, Mr. Ronnie Nathanielsz (ABS-CBN/Philboxing), Boxing Promoter Elmer Anuran, and International Referee Atty. Danrex Joseph Tapdasan.

This is the third branch of the Gerry Peñalosa Boxing Gym which has branches in Market Place, Mandaluyong and in Parañaque. According to owner Gerry Peñalosa, the gym aims to discover and help more Filipino boxers and the business aspect is simply secondary. The boxing gym offers world class boxing facilities with the most competent roster of trainers.

When asked if he still intends to return to the ring, the Champ from San Carlos City, Negros Occidental simply shrugged it off and said “I am done fighting, I am just continuing my mission of helping young and talented Pinoy Boxers who can bring more honor to our country.”

To Gerry and his very gracious and lovely wife Goody, congratulations and thank you for the very warm reception!
