Doliguez says he’s ready to fight Yordan


PhilBoxing.com



Doliguez.

‘‘Here I am Daud Yordan.’’


Jun Doliguez, nicknamed Hercules of Philippine boxing, is ready to test the mettle of the IBO featherweight titleholder anytime, anywhere.

‘‘He says that Filipinos are warriors. And I respect him for that. Let me stress that I’m ready to fight him. If our promoters will agree, then he can taste my punches,’’ said Doliguez, one of the topnotch boxers training at the Touch Gloves Boxing Gym in Agoncillo, Batangas.

The popular Indon boxer successfully defended his crown recently by beating Mongolian Choi Tseveenpurev at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. Yordan has an impressive 30-2, 23 knockouts record.

He broke the hearts of Filipino ring fans when he beat Filipino standout Lorenzo Villanueva for the world crown last May 5 in Singapore.And Doliguez, a provincemate of Filipino ring legend Manny Pacquiao, wants to avenge the loss of Villanueva and steal the world crown.

‘‘Everybody wants to be a world champion someday. I want to be a world champion and a fight against Yordan will make my dreams come true,’’ said Doliguez, who is still unbeaten in 15 fights. He knocked out his last two opponents including world-rated Ciso Morales.

Saved by the Bell Promotions president and Doliguez’s adviser Elmer Anuran said he is open to possibilities.‘‘Jun is one of the fighters mentioned by Yordan as a top prospect. We are ready as long as Yordan’s handlers and SBB can agree on terms,’’ said Anuran, who is also credited for his grassroots programs in boxing. The founder of party-list group ALA-EH also guides the career of world-rated Drian Francisco. Yordan is under the Dragonfire Promotions.

Doliguez owns the WBO Oriental featherweight title and is known for his daredevil style which should attract the fans. Packing power in both hands, Doliguez adopts the no-prisoner stance which is suited for the power-punching Yordan.

Doliguez is one of the three Filipino boxers mentioned by the Indonesian champ as a leading featherweight. Others are Boom Boom Bautista and Abe Concepcion.

‘‘I’m proud to be in the list. Now I do the hardwork,’’ said Doliguez.
