When the Pinoys knock out the Mexicanos…

Pilipinas: KAMPEON ng 2007 Boxing World Cup Laban sa Mexico



The Filipino Boxing Team led by Gerry Penalosa has won 5 out of the 6 bouts against an all-Mexican Boxing team. Of the five boxers only Boom-boom Baustista failed to snatch the crown of WBO world champion Daniel Ponce De Leon of Mexico.


Diosdado Gabi defeated Jose Angel Beranza


A.J. Banal defeated Eric Ortiz of Mexico City


Michael Domingo defeated Miguel Roman


Z Gorres defeated Gerson Guerrero


Gerry Penalosa versus Jhonny Gonzalez


There is a dearth of things that Filipinos can proud of these days. Our athletes never fail to lift our spirits. I just hope that this hard-earned victory by the Philippine World Cup Boxing Team will not be used by our politicians to boost their popularity.

In a country full of despair, sufferings and hopelessness even the hungry feel the pride of these victories… for most of these boxers come from the ranks of the poor.
