YORDAN CHALLENGES BEST FILIPINO FEATHERWEIGHTS

PhilBoxing.com




DAUD “CINO” YORDAN ASKS YOU TO VOTE FOR THE BEST FILIPINO FEATHERWEIGHT BOXER

“I want to fight the best fighters. Filipinos are warriors and I respect all Philippine fighters. I am asking the Philippine people and the boxing universe to tell me which Philippine fighter they think would give me the hardest fight in the future.”

Daud “Cino” Yordan (30-2, 23 KOs) successfully defended his IBO World Featherweight Title for the first time on November 9 at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore against the Mongolian Warrior Choijiljavyn “Choi” Tseveenpurev (36-6, 24 KOs).

His victory came by way of a unanimous decision with scores of 119-110, 117 – 111 and 118-110. It was an all-out war from start to finish but it was Yordan who was landing the cleaner and harder shots. The legendary “Colonel” Bob Sheridan, never at a loss for words, called it the fight of the night and a candidate for Fight of the Year.

Yordan won the IBO World Featherweight Title earlier this year in an explosive match up against Philippine knock out sensation Lorenzo Villaneuva during which both contestants hit the canvas in the first couple of rounds. It was 5 May, in a promotional debut for Marina Bay Sands and Dragon Fire promotions, that the man known as Cino soundly defeated “Brave Heart” Villanueva (23-0 21 KO at the time) by way of a TKO in the second round. Yordan was knocked down heavily in the first round but managed to turn it around in the second, sending the undefeated Villanueva crashing to the canvas twice and forcing referee Phil Austin to step in and stop the bout saying the Filipino had received enough punishment.

The two round fight was as good an action bout as you could ever wish for, it just needed to go longer.

Yordan was recently quoted as saying. ”Choi and Villaneuva are true warriors and I have the utmost respect for both of them and I only want to fight the best.”

“My sparring partners for my defence against Choi were Filipinos Jerry Nardo and Wilson Ogso (Weng Haya) and they were two of the nicest people I have ever met in my life and will consider them friends for the rest of my life.”

“My idols in the sport of boxing are Miguel Cotto and the legendary Pinoy Manny Pacquiao. I have big respect for all Philippine boxers, they are true gladiators and are always fighting toe to toe and have an exciting style and more importantly the Philippine people love boxing and want to see the best fights. I want the Philippine people to tell Dragon Fire which fighter they believe would give me the best fight in future. Win lose or draw I want the best fight.”

When pressed to call out a particular Filipino fighter, Yordan went on “That’s why I want the Philippine fans to tell me who is the best featherweight from the Philippines. Rey Bautista, Bernabe Concepcion, Jun “Hercules” Doliguez? You tell me.”

“I have never turned down a challenge in my career and I will not start now. I am a fighting champion and I want to be the people’s champion. I respect the Philippine people and the fighters and when the “Filipino Flash” Nonito Donaire comes to the featherweight division I will be ready and waiting for him.”
