Doliguez ‘accomodates’ Negro Ramirez’s plea


PhilBoxing.com



Doliguez.
HE”s not hard-headed. Ask Saved by the Bell Promotions president Elmer Anuran and he’ll not get tired of praising the attitude of rising Filipino boxer Jun ‘‘Hercules’’ Doliguez.

Fearless is also one of Anuran’s descriptions of the hero from Malungon in Sarangani Province and Agoncillo, Batangas.

But there is also one thing which separates the 22-year-old Filipino world title prospect. He is very accommodating.

Upon learning that Jose ‘‘Negro’’ Ramirez, Rey Boom Boom Bautista’s conqueror, who recently lost to to two time Olympic Gold medalist from Ukraine Vasyl Lomachenko at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, pleaded to fight him, the 5-foot-7 Doliguez was just too glad to accommodate the request.

‘‘Let’s give in to Negro’s request of a fight. Afterall, I don’t say no to challenges,’’ said Doliguez, who created quite a stir after scoring a 6th round TKO over Mexican Giovanni ‘‘El Ruso’’ Caro. Doliguez, who is a member of Anuran’s Touch Gloves Boxing Gym, was the lone Pinoy fighter in the Tim Bradley-Juan Manuel Marquez card in Las Vegas.

Ramirez and Lomachenko, who was making pro debut, also fought in the undercard.

Ramirez (25-4-15 knockouts) rose to prominence when he broke the hearts of Filipino rings fans after besting Bautista for the WBO International featherweight championship last April 20, 2013 in Davao City.

Anuran said that he expects Doliguez (17-0-2, 13 knockouts) to exchange punches with the crafty fighter from Mexicali in Mexico first week of December.

‘‘Things are being finalized,’’ said Anuran, who said the fight will be held at the Pacgor Grand Theater and Casino in Parañaque City.

Anuran they’ve been looking for a Doliguez-Ramirez fight for quite sometime.

‘‘Now it’s going to be a reality,’’ said the well-respected sportsman-businessman.

Anuran said Doliguez will be feted with a grand parade by his townmates in Malungon.

‘‘Things are turning bright for Doliguez,’’ noted Anuran, who has a co-promotional agreement with Fernando Beltran’s Zanfer Promotion.

In an exclusive interview, Doliguez said he is very thankful for his growing number of fans and the full-support of Saved by the Bell.

‘‘Boss Elmer is all out in giving me the support. My win over Caro was proof that my training at the Wild Card Gym under coach Benny dela Pena was very effective,’’ said Doliguez.

The explosive win over Caro actually put Doliguez back into the radar as one of the Philippines solid bets to become a world champion. It was a redemption of sorts after Doliguez managed a draw against Ruben Tamayo in his first fight outside the comforts of the Philippines last July in Yucatan, Mexico. Following the draw, Anuran decided to pull all strings so that Team Doliguez would be able to train at the Wild Card Gym of Freddie Roach.

‘‘I really wanted to prove that I belong. My victory will inspire me to world doubly hard to attain my dream of becoming a world champion. But of course, I want to beat Ramirez to avenge Boom Boom and make ring fans very happy.’’

Now, that’s bad news for Negro.
