The major networks are also helping in giving our current crop of future world champions a venue to showcase their ring savvy and potential.

caloycomment: I still remember the first time I saw a live boxing bout, it was way back in 1989 when the ALA boys were still in there 4th of 5th bouts.  I saw Gerry Penalosa, Andy Tabanas and ALA Villamor made new fans at the New Cebu Coliseum. It was like 22 years ago and I can still vividly remember how they impressed a 13 year old kid like me.  They were dubbed as future world champions.  Well, they all became world contenders but only Gerry Penalosa ended up with a world championship belt. Fast forward. Now we are going to see the next generation of boxing talents and hopefully many of them will bring honor and pride to all Pinoy fight fans. Please support the promotions if you can. Good luck and keep on punching!
