PINOY PRIDE XXVII: Foreign boxers band together to defeat Team Philippines


PhilBoxing.com




Manila, Philippines -- On a sunny Tuesday afternoon at Shakeys Pizza in Malate, the PSA had a press conference for the 4 of the 5 foreign boxers who will compete in the prestigious world renowned Pinoy Pride boxing series.

Leading the the pack was the headliner of the co-main event of the evening, Daniel “Canerito” Ruiz (27-5-2-19KO) of Los Mochis Mexico, the boxing capital city in Mexico were World Champions are born.

Ruiz will go up against the tough Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista for the vacant WBO International Featherweight Championship. Ruiz was quoted as saying "there will be a 'KNOCKOUT' and I will not wait for a decision. I trained hard for this fight with my trainers and we are very prepared.

In a private conversation with his trainer Luis Gonzalez, it had come to light that in his hard sparring he dropped World Champion Humberto “ZORRITA” Sotto and also Heriberto “Cuate” Ruiz. Bautista has had two fights with Cuate Ruiz, losing the first fight by unanimous decision and won his recent fight by decision after the fight was stopped due to cuts.

With his early morning jogging on Roxas Blvd, Ruiz is ready to go toe to toe with Bautista. A surprising story came out that Ruiz is a movie star in Mexico. He was on the big hit, Campeon (Champion) Azteca Reality show which is as the same format as the U.S. hit reality show, The Contender.

The third championship fight of the night will feature Miguel “Hands of Stone” Antoine of Barbados against the current WBO International Light Welterweight Champion Jason “El Nino” Pagara.

Sam Layne the chief trainer of Antoine said, “We have waited for this opportunity and we will not let this pass us by.” Layne added, after beating Pagara, their sights are set on Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao. Miguel Antoine was quoted as saying he went to school with the world famous singer RHIANNA and that the whole beautiful island of Barbados will support him.

The UBO World Bantamweight Champion Mudde Ntambe of Uganda will go against Michael “Bruce Lee” Domingo in a bantamweight fight. Domingo is a veteran fighter that many top fighters stay away from since he can be really dangerous and high risk with little return. He just needs to be patient and he will get his chance for a world title.

The fighters get up early and do their jogging together and also do their training in the beautiful Elorde Gym. The foreign fighters have made a pledge to each other to support each other in the upcoming fight.
