Doliguez challenges Chris John


PhilBoxing.com



Doliguez.
THE MOST-feared featherweight in the country today wants a piece of Indonesian boxing hero Chris John.

After failing to lure another Indon boxing hero Daud Yordan into a fight despite repeated challenges, Jun "Hercules" Doliguez said he’s ready to take it one step further and exchange punches with Yohannes Christian John or popularly known as Chris John.

"I am terribly disappointed that Yordan didn’t answer my call. I’m sure Chris John is different," said Doliguez, during a break of training at the Touch Gloves Boxing Gym in Agoncillo, Batangas.

A provincemate of boxing hero Manny Pacquiao, Doliguez earns the reputation as the "most avoided boxer" in the local boxing scene. Foes tend to shy away from the power punches of the Sarangani prizefighter.

"It’s safe to say that boxers tend to shy away from Jun’s power," said Elmer Anuran, president of the Saved by the Bell Promotion, who charts the career of Doliguez. The 5-foot-7 Doliguez is still undefeated in 17 bouts. He floored 12 foes and draw once.

The youthful Anuran believes that Doliguez is world-class. "Everybody knows that we moved heaven and earth to make the Doliguez-Yordan bout a reality. But this is boxing and you’ll never know what will happen next."

The bout didn’t push through when Yordan (30-4, 23 knockouts) suffered a stunning knockout loss to Simpiwe Vetyeka of South Africa in Indonesia. As a result, the Indon lost his International Boxing Organization featherweight title to Vetyeka.

"I was ready to dislodge Yordan. I knew I can beat him," said Doliguez, who trains under the watchful eyes of veteran trainer Benny dela Peña.

After a technical draw against Edgar Gabejan, Doliguez won his next four bouts by knockouts . He downed battled-grizzled veterans Ariel Delgado, Ciso Morales, Erik Rapada and Arlon Batingal in succession.

"Jun sent them all to dreamland," said Anuran. "I was confident that Jun could have beaten Yordan."

Doliguez admits that John is a going to be a very tough foe. A future Hall of Famer, the native of Banjarnegara kept his World Boxing Association featherweight title after escaping with a technical draw against Japanese Satoshi Hosono in Jakarta.

The 33-year-old John. dubbed as The Dragon, defended his title for the 18th straight time. John is undefeated in 51 bouts. He carries an eye-popping mark of 48 wins and three losses.

"I respect Chris John. He’s a legend but my call is for him to give me a chance. I guarantee him and the fans that it’s going to be a fight-to-remember," Doliguez declared.
