THE RING and WBC flyweight champion Sonny Boy Jaro was overjoyed on Saturday night as he made his first appearance with THE RING belt at the Angono Municipal Gymnasium in Angono, Philippines. Jaro (34-10-5, 24 knockouts), of Binangonan, Philippines, showed off the title to the audience, who were in attendance to watch the boxing event highlighted by Filipino contender Al Sabaupan’s first-round knockout of journeyman Freddie Martinez.
Jaro was flanked by his co-managers Aljoe Jaro and Naris Singwangcha, as well as his stablemate, THE RING’s No. 5-rated strawweight contender Denver Cuello.
The 30-year-old veteran became “The Cinderella Man” of the new decade when he knocked out Pongsaklek Wonjongkam in six rounds, ending the Thai legend’s nearly uninterrupted reign as the top 112 pounder in the world. Prior to the fight, Jaro had planned to take the money earned from the fight and use it to buy a motorized tricycle to earn a living taxiing pedestrians had he lost.
The upset was largely unexpected because of Jaro’s inconsistent performances in the past, which include a first-round knockout loss to Giovani Segura in a 2009 shot at Segura’s WBA light flyweight title and a second-round KO loss to Mexican Oscar Ibarra in 2010. Jaro has since won five straight by knockout.
“Being awarded THE RING belt is the greatest honor I have ever received in my life,” said Jaro, who also goes by the surname Singwangcha. “I am now in the roster of Filipino legends like Pancho Villa, Flash Elorde and Manny Pacquiao who are fellow recipients of the award. Thank you so much to the Editorial Board of The Ring. Thanks as well to my managers Aljoe Jaro and Naris Singwangcha for guiding my career and for Kuya (Tagalog for big brother) Aljoe Jaro for personally handling my training and conditioning. Thank you to my fellow Filipinos and boxing fans around the world for their support.”
Jaro is currently preparing for his first title defense, his mandatory challenger for the WBC belt Toshiyuki Igarashi (15-1-1, 10 KOs) on July 16 in Igarashi’s backyard of Winghat, Kasukabe, Saitama, Japan.
“I have been training like a mad dog in our stable,” said Jaro. “This is my most difficult training camp. I have been punishing myself in the gym and my trainer has been letting me do things I have never imagined. Fighting in Japan is a do-or-die thing. I know I need to knock Igarashi out in order to bring home my belt. That’s what I’m preparing to do.”

Sonny Boy Jaro na taga-Binangonan at Angono, bibigyan ng hero's parade at parangal bilang bayani at anak ng bayan ng Angono Rizal sa lunes, ika-12 ng Marso, 2012.Sa pangunguna ni Angono, Rizal Mayor Gerry Calderon, mainit na sinalubong ng mga kawani ng pamahalaang bayan ang boksingerong si Sonny Boy Jaro na bumisita sa munisipyo, Martes, Marso 6.

Si Jaro ang pinakabagong World Boxing Council flyweight champion ng bansa.

Naagaw niya ang korona mula sa dating kampeon na Thai boxer na si Pongsaklek Wonjongkam sa kanilang laban na ginanap sa Chonbori, Thailand noong Marso 2 matapos ang 6th round TKO. Dehado sa nasabing laban si Jaro kontra kay Pongsaklek dahil sa hometown ng Thai boxer naglaban. Labing-anim (16) na ring ulit na naidepensa ni Pongsaklek ang kanyang korona at tinagurian siya ng kanyang mga kababayan na “superstar boxer”.

Ngunit hindi umubra si Pongsaklek sa mala-maso na kamao ni Jaro.

Unang round pa lamang ay humalik na sa lona ang Thai boxer. Naulit ito sa 3rd round hanggang itigil ang laban sa Round 6.

Si Jaro ay nakabase sa boxing stable sa may Tayuman, Binangonan at bago makamit ang titulo ay lagi na ring lumalaban sa mga paboksing dito sa bayan ng Angono. (Richard R. Gappi)

LOS ANGELES—Floyd Mayweather Jr. has spoken to Filipino icon Manny Pacquiao by telephone to discuss a possible megafight next May, advisers to each fighter confirmed to several media outlets on Thursday.

Mayweather adviser Leonard Ellerbe confirmed the call to ESPN while Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum did the same to and Pacquiao himself talked with ABS-CBN in the Philippines about the short conversation.

The Philippine report quoted Pacquiao as saying there would be no problem if Mayweather would agree to a 50-50 split of income from what is expected to be the richest fight in boxing history—as much as $100 million—if it ever comes off.

Unbeaten US star Mayweather and Pacquiao, regarded as the world’s top pound-for-pound fighters, nearly made a deal for a fight once before but the American’s insistence on unique antidoping bloodtests helped kill the talks.

This time, Mayweather has a May 5 date booked at a Las Vegas arena while Pacquiao’s promoter wants a late May date to assemble a huge outdoor arena so tickets can be sold to boost profits by as much as $50 million.

“Floyd wants to fight Manny Pacquiao on May 5 and he went as far as to reach out to Manny Pacquiao personally,” Ellerbe said.

‘Step Up, Punk’

Ellerbe told ESPN that Mayweather called from Las Vegas to the Philippines after earlier this month calling out southpaw Pacquiao on Twitter, making taunts, “Step Up, Punk,” to the world welterweight champion.

“I can’t say what exactly was said but I know,” Ellerbe told ESPN. “Floyd has shown more than a willingness to get this fight done and this is really, really what he wants to do and what he wants to give to the fight fans.”

Mayweather has spoken with Pacquiao adviser Michael Koncz several times in recent weeks, according to all reports.

Outdoor arena

Pacquiao, 54-3 with two draws and 32 knockouts, has won his past 15 fights over a span of nearly seven years while Mayweather, 42-0 with 26 knockouts, must serve a 90-day jail sentence starting June 1 after a domestic violence conviction.

Arum said that the issue of who Pacquiao would next fight would be resolved this coming week.

Arum, who is chair of Top Rank promotions, presented four other possible foes for “Pacman” as next opponents, including Puerto Rico’s Miguel Cotto, Americans Lamont Peterson and Tim Bradley and Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez.

Arum earlier said a fight with Mayweather at the end of May or even early June would give the Filipino champion time to heal from a 29-stitch cut he suffered in his fight with Marquez last November.

That would also give time for a 45,000-seat outdoor arena to be built—more than twice the capacity of the MGM Grand Garden Arena, where Pacquiao has fought before. MGM Grand can hold some 17,000 people. With reports from AFP, ESPN, USA Today
