Sorsogon-native Ador Torres Scores 3rd KO Win in Thailand; Becomes ABF Welterweight Champion

BANGKOK, Thailand -- Ador Torres, one of the most active Filipino boxers in 2022, ended the year not only scoring his 3rd consecutive stoppage win here in the Kingdom of Thailand, but also becoming the new ABF Welterweight Champion.

His most recent knockout win over brave Thai warrior Meechaiya Kaiwiset shined bright just days ago at the luxurious SpacePlus Night Club in Thailand's capital, Bangkok, live in the Kingdom on Chic TV Channel 80.

Ador Torres Lands crushing left hook at his tough Thai opponent Meechaiya Kaiwiset, his right ready to rock as well.

Despite starting the year with a setback during a tough war in Pakistan, the brave and fully-committed 27-year-old southpaw warrior quickly regrouped, coming back with big BANGS, demonstrating steel mantle, mental toughness and improved technique.

Born in the beautiful Bungto san Santa Magdalena in the paradise Bicol Province of Sorsogon, the rather silent, but friendly and easy to smile Ador Torres (7-4-1, 4 KO's), sees with positivism this new year 2023 as a new start to more challenges in the sport that he loves.

However, the road has not being easy for the deeply religious Christian young man, who faithfully attends Church for guidance in his spiritual life towards Christ.

Because for Torres boxing is a true passion, although it is not everything.

Above all, is His love for his God our Lord Jesus Christ, as well as his commitment to Family and to his Beloved country of The Philippines, the glorious land of LapuLapu that he calls "My Home."

It is also the land from where Ador Torres would love to receive kind support and understanding. Because, sadly, sometimes he feels in his heart that his hard work, his dedication to boxing, his sweat and his tears are not really appreciated.

But being always positive, Ador Torres does not harbor hard feelings, leaving all up to our almighty God.

As such, Ador continues his life in boxing.

It's a life of much work, daily tough training and discipline. It's a life that he deeply enjoys, together with his teammates of the Highland Boxing stable, being his fellow Filipino ABF champion John Michael Zulueta his bully and best friend.

And thanks God, in his life's journey, Ador counts with the support and guidance of a group of remarkable Kababayans that care for him, as his young manager Darwin Miller Dep-ay, his dear teammate Herlan Gomez, Highland Boxing Promotions director Brico Santig, as well as coach Jomar Fajardo and coach former Pinoy world champion Joemarie Gamboa Sr.

They are Ador Torres' boxing brothers, the ones bringing out the best of him, the ones sad with his losses, and proud with his victories.

"I love my life in boxing," says the humble and appreciative, yet strong Ador Torres.

"My teammates are just like my brothers. We support each other. We Help each other during training and during fights, I appreciate them much," Ador Torres shares.

In the coming days Ador Torres will enjoy a well-deserved holiday with his dear family in his beloved hometown of Santa Magdalena.

At home, he hopes to visit his many relatives, friends and pay a humble but heartfelt courtesy visit to his municipality hall lead by Mayor Mark Jewery G. Lozano and Vice-Mayor Ramon Ragas Espela, whom have been friendly and kind towards him.

Congratulations to Ador Torres for his hard-fought triumphs in the Kingdom of Thailand, and for becoming the new ABF Welterweight champion, a victory title that brings Honor and Glory to his cherished, so much-loved Land of The Philippines.
