“I want to officially challenge you, Milan Melindo for your title. Give me this chance. Don’t worry about me or how would I feel. I would be forever grateful if you accept the challenge. This is just a sport and I know this will be a very entertaining fight,” said Petalcorin (26W-2L-1D-19 KOs) in a press statement sent to Cebu Daily News.

“If you say that there are other belts out there, I will tell you this: I want yours because I believe that of the four champions, you are the best. I want to challenge the best. Also, I believe I am the highest-ranked fighter in the division in the IBF at number 4 as the first three are vacant. Don’t worry about losing. At least the belt stays in the Philippines. You say you are a warrior. Let’s fight. No more excuses,” added Petalcorin.

“Boxing fans in the country and around the world would want to come and experience this fight. This fight could inspire and bring more life to the sport in the country. This fight must happen. I will be talking to my partners and will look for solutions to make this fight happen.”

Randy Petalcorin of Davao City has a record of 26W(19KO)-2L and currently ranked no.2 contender for Melindo.

Melindo is not interested to fight Petalcorin

IBF World Light flyweight champion Milan Melindo is not interested in a Filipino vs Filipino fight.

Melindo said in the interview:
(via manilatimes.net)

He (Petalcorin) should prove his worth first. Before I became a contender, I fought different fighters and became a worthy challenger,” Melindo (36-2 win-loss record with 13 knockouts) told The Manila Times in a phone interview. “Not fighting him means I’m a coward? No of course not.”

“I’m a world champion and I fought so hard to win this belt. I don’t like that all-Filipino fight,”

Milan Melindo is now focusing on unifying belts in the light flyweight division.

“That’s my goal but it depends on my promoter. If I defend it against a foreigner, it’s okay with me but not against a fellow Filipino,” he said. “The three titles are presently held by Japanese boxers. I really wanted to go for a unification bout against anyone of them.”

There are 3 Japanese who held belts in this weight class, Kosei Tanaka has the WBO, Ryoichi Taguchi has the WBA and Ken Shiro is the champion in the WBC.

Melindo added:

“We only have four Filipino world champions right now and I believe pitting two Filipinos against each other for the title is not a good idea. If we have plenty of world champions, why not?”

Milan Melindo grabbed his first world belt after defeating Akira Yaegashi last May 21st in Japan via stunning 1st round TKO.

Improved Geje Eustaquio ready to rock Singapore

Improved Geje Eustaquio ready to rock Singapore

Even though Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio is coming off a disappointing setback and facing a familiar foe as he makes his return to the ONE Championship cage, the celebrated Filipino martial artist remains optimistic that he will have his hand raised in triumph.

Eustaquio faces fierce Thai rival Anatpong “Mak” Bunrad on the undercard of ONE: DYNASTY OF HEROES, which takes place at the 12,000-seater Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore on Friday, 26 May.
The 28-year-old Baguio City native first crossed paths with Bunrad in April 2015 at ONE: VALOR OF CHAMPIONS, where the latter took a razor-thin split decision victory.
Although he is fresh from a first-round submission loss to Finnish submission specialist Toni Tauru this past December, Eustaquio has no doubt that he could settle the score following a controversial split decision in favor of Bunrad when they first met two years ago.
“My first fight against him served as a big lesson. It’s my duty to learn from my mistakes and improve to become a better martial artist. I know what I am capable of. I can’t wait to showcase my talent this coming May 26,” he said.
“Singapore, be ready. I am bringing the fireworks to you,” Eustaquio added.
Eustaquio promises a new and improved version of himself when he steps inside the ONE Championship cage against Bunrad.
“There is always a room for improvement. I sensed the urgency to improve my skills and arsenal further after the fight against Toni Tauru. This time, we enhanced timing and precision. We added speed as well as proper executions of game plan,” he shared.
Although he expects that Bunrad will stand and bang with him in their three-round flyweight encounter, Eustaquio asserted that he made sure to fine-tune his ground game.
“My ground game is coming. My wrestling is coming. I believe if you’re going to compare it with others, it’s not very low in terms of performance in wrestling or grappling,” he said. “Honestly speaking, I am not that far behind.”
Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao believes that Eustaquio is the better cage competitor than Bunrad, noting that his valued pupil has learned his lessons from his recent outing in ONE Championship.
“Skills wise, I’ve seen an improved and better Geje, as compared to two years ago when the two fighters met. So this is going to be a good fight the fans would love to see,” Sangiao guaranteed.
