PSA TO CONSIDER NAMING ‘BOXER OF THE YEAR’ AWARD IN HONOR OF PACQUIAO


PhilBoxing.com


The prestigious Philippine Sportswriters Association headed by its president, Tempo Sports Editor Ray Bancod will consider honoring eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao by naming the PSA “Fighter of the Year” award after him.

Bancod told the Manila Standard the PSA board will meet next week to discuss naming one of its coveted awards after Pacquiao.


The Annual Awards will be held on March 16.

Bancod also indicated they would take up suggestions from PSA members that WBO/Ring Magazine and WBC Diamond Belt champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire and WBO/WBA champion Brian Viloria be named joint “Athletes of the Year.”

Donaire was recently chosen as 2012 “Fighter of the Year” by ESPN, Ring Magazine and the widely-read internet site boxingscene.com while Viloria was chosen for “honorable mention” in the same category by boxingscene.com.

Donaire won the 122 pound belt with a comfortable victory over Wilfredo Vazquez Jr in San Antonio, Texas in February and then successfully defended the title in a unification bout with IBF champion Jeffrey Mathebula before scoring a 9th round stoppage of classy Japanese WBC super champion Toshiaki Nishioka and windup up the year with a smashing 3rd round knockout of Mexican warrior Jorge “Traviseo” Arce.

Viloria on the other hand avenged a loss to Mexico’s Omar Nino Romero some six years ago with a smashing 9th round TKO and then captured the WBA title in a “Fight of the Year” candidate against Hernan “Tyson” Marquez with a 10th round stoppage in an action-packed battle last November 17 in which he dropped Marquez in rounds 1, 5 and 10.
