‘Hercules’ waits for Yordan’s yes


PhilBoxing.com



Yordan.
Sportsman Elmer Anuran said Jun ‘‘Hercules’’ Doliguez is just waiting for Daud ‘‘Cino’’ Yordan and his camp’s approval so that the International Boxing Organization featherweight title fight will push though early next year at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

The youthful Anuran, founder of party-list group ALA-EH, said if Yordan is serious in testing the mettle of leading Filipino featherweights he must sign a contract to fight his ward who recently knocked out Eric Rapada in the 6th round before a highly-thrilled crowd at Agoncillo, Batangas.

‘‘Hercules is ready and it’s up to Yordan whether he wants to exchange punches with a Filipino warrior,’’ said Anuran, whose advocacy is sports development in the grassroots.

Doliguez (15-0-1), a provincemate of ring icon Manny Pacquiao, is proud owner of the WBO Oriental crown he won by flattening world-rated Ciso Morales.

Anuran, owner of the Touch Gloves Boxing Gym, expressed confidence that Yordan’s camp will agree to fight Doliguez. Dragon Fire, which is being credited for popularizing boxing in Singapore, believes that Doliguez-Yordan is going to be action-packed.

‘‘Touch Gloves Boxing Gym and Dragon Fire have verbally agreed that the fight mush happen. The ball is now in the hands of Yordan’s camp, so to speak,’’ said Anuran, who noted that the 5-foot-7 Doliguez is determined to join the elite list of Filipino boxing champions.

‘‘Here I am Cino. Fight a Filipino warrior,’’ Doliguez challenged the Indonesian boxing sensation.

The crafty Yordan threw the more accurate punches to defend his title for the second time against hard-fighting Choijiljavyn “Choi” Tseveenpurev (36-6, 24 KOs). Yordan sports a 30-2 mark.

In a statement to dragonfire.com, Yordan said “I have great respect for all Filipino fighters. Doliguez is the province mate of the one of my idols, the legendary Pinoy Manny Pacquiao so you know he is tough. I love the style of the Filipino fighters, they come to fight. ‘’ Yordan won the title after surviving an early knockdown against Filipino Lorenzo Villanueva last May.
Doliguez packs power but Yordan is expected use his ringmanship to gain the edge.

‘‘My wish is for Yordan not to run so that we can mix it up. If he’s going to run, then my team will be ready. I dream of becoming world champion someday and if given the opportunity will go for it. Rambulan na ito,’’ Doliguez said.
