Battle of Victors @ HKCEC – 8 October, 2016

rex-tso

HongKongers were out in numbers to cheer on Rex ‘The Wonder kid’ Tso at The Battle of Victors fight night. After a hard fought 10 rounds against Japan’s Ryuto Maekawa, Rex won a unanimous points victory to bring his record to 20-0. The tough fight, fought with a generous amount of sportsmanship and mutual respect, saw the boxers go toe-to-toe for extended periods and had chants of Rex, Rex reverberating around the HKCEC.

The kid is growing up! He still lacks that knock-out punching power that will earn respect from the very best. Ryuto took a lot of punches, and dished out a fair few, but never looked remotely afraid of getting knocked down by Tso.

There wasn’t much on the undercard, Raymond Poon Kai-ching received a thunderous cheer after winning his second pro bout with a knock-out. But you have to feel for Australian James Gibbs on his professional debut. After giving up a career as a miner to become a boxer, he was knocked down, and almost out, by the first punch he received inside 20 seconds of the first round. He lasted less than another minute before the the referee stopped the fight.

Manny ‘Pac-Man’ Pacquiao beats Chris ‘Runaway’ Algieri

_DSC5162

Manny Pacquiao knocked Chris Algieri to the floor six times as he coasted to an easy unanimous points victory over the out-matched American. Algieri obviously thought he was at an audition for Stricly Come Dancing as this supposed boxer entered the ring, as he proudly acknowledged afterwards, with the plan of “running away” and not boxing… Surely so that in future years as a politician he can claim to have “fought the boxing legend Manny ‘Pac-Man’ Pacquiao”. That would imply he stood face to face with the Pac-man and engaged in a boxing match – something that simply didn’t happen for 35 ½ minutes of the 36 minute 12 round fight. If he had stood and boxed he’d have been knocked out – but that doesn’t make quite such an impressive sound-bite.

Boxing fans pay a lot of money to see fights – both live and on pay per view – and Algieri’s attitude in the ring and at the post-bout press conference left a sour taste in the mouth. Especially after the commitment, endeavour and never give-up attitude shown by Thai fighters Chonlatarin Piriyapinyo and Kwanpichit Onesongchaingym in their fights against Olympic Gold Medal winners Vasyl Lomachenko and Zou Shiming respectively. The two thoroughly entertaining bouts were highlighted by boxing skills and fast hands of the medal winners – both learning fast how to hurt with their punches rather than just score points – and the heart of the Thais. Who were both knocked down several times, but got up each time to fight on and let their opponents know they’d been in a tough fight. It was a great spectacle and a sold-out Cotai Arena showed it’s noisy appreciation for the winners and losers.
