DOMINGO KEEPS FAIRYTALE RUN AT ALA STABLE


PhilBoxing.com




Cebu-based Mindanao brawler Michael Domingo doesn't own yet a major title, nor given a chance to fight for a world crown. All he can brag about at the moment is the Philippine bantamweight belt that is proudly strapped on his waist. But his consistent rise to the top of boxing echelon can already be considered a fairtyle story that is destined to have a happy ending.

Domingo landed on the shores of Cebu bringing along with him a record of 22 wins (8KOs), 12 losses, and two draws in 36 fights. Notwithstanding his not-so impressive credential, there must be probably something special in Domingo why well-known
international promoter Sammy Gello-ani took him as member of the highly respected ALA Boxing Gym family.

True enough, Domingo responded to the challenge and even performed beyond expectations by winning 10 of his 12 matches since he hooked up with Gello-ani, revered as the "Don King" of Cebu boxing, barely two years ago.

"When I suffered a series of defeats, I did not lose hope. I did not give up. That's the only the advise I could share to upcoming boxers. Don't be easily discouraged if you lose because that's part of the game. Instead, devote your time to the gym and practice hard just like what I did," said Domingo.

A very humble, soft-spoken Domingo credited the ALA Stable for his success as much as for himself.

"I learned so much about self discipline at the ALA Gym. You have no business of being in there if you don't know how to discipline yourself," said Domingo, who hails from Lebak, Sultan Kudarat. "At the ALA Gym, we're also taught that training hard and determination are essential to success."

Armed with that flaming dedication and desire to win, Domingo is a no non-sense ring gladiator who always deliver when presented with a challenge.

At one time, ALA top honco Antonio "Bidoy" L. Aldeguer threatened - although in jest - not to give Domingo's purse if he won't be able to knock out Alejandro Felix Montiel in the undercard of Manny Pacquiao-Oscar Larios showdown on Julye 3 last year at the Araneta Coliseum.

Like a good soldier obeying a command from an officer, Domingo knocked down Montiel in the second round and went on to finish off the Mexican in the seventh round.

In the recent Boxing World Cup, Domingo is faced with the most difficult task in his career as he is ranged against the young and unbeaten Golden Boy Promotions prospect in Miguel Roman, who boasts of a 22-0 record spiked with 16KOs prior to their ring clash.

But Domingo did not run out of tricks and stunned everyone by pulling off a unanimous six-round shutout of the fancied Mexican. All the three judges had a uniform scores of 60-54 for Domingo, who rose to 32-14-2 (12KOs).

Domingo, who turns 28 years old on August 23, is optimistic that better things have yet to come for him. And just like any other boxer of dreamt of something big, Domingo wishes to become a world champion in the future.

"If given a chance to fight for a world title, why not?" Domingo concluded.
