Filipino sports and boxing fans are in for a treat as ESPN5 gives you a whole day of boxing this May 13th which your friends from the Kapatid channel can bring. With their partners ESPN the global leader in sports, they will give you unadulterated Filipino fights that should be on screen, Thrilla in Manila, and even championship bouts that will be streamed from across the globe.
Coach Chot Reyes “For us just being here we should get applauded. I don’t think you’ll see anything like this, a wall to wall LIVE BOXING day on ESPN5 on May 13. Another one in Las Vegas a little later on. We started ESPN greatest fights, Thrilla in Manila, Rocky Marciano, this is really going to be a treat for Filipino boxing fans. We believe in the Filipino fighter, we believe in our boxers. Their stories will be told and we will start with Jerwin Pretty Boy Ancajas. We hope you get to see how our talented boxers started their career. All we could offer is the genuine partnership, not entirely money that the other networks have, but it weeds out those who don't really care for them, or have them in mind. We will continue to promote boxing, Manila is the best place to do that. Everybody knows we can work with other promoters and management, what we know would be good for the boxers we will do it. All of these other sports we will put them on the spotlight, as a Sports channel we will give them these opportunities. We cannot forget Manila. Maraming salamat po!”
AJ Bazooka Banal adds “Everyone in Survival Camp knows they should give their 100%, even more so you can only expect the best when the fight happens.”
Marvin Marvelous Sonsona says “Thanks to team Ancajas for giving me a chance to get this fight, to join survival camp. I promise to show everything, we’ll prepare for all the help they have given us, thank you for supporting us.”
Mark Barriga says “The improvement of power and endurance is so different. We need to last longer on the ring, not just punch it out, to learn to breathe. We work hard with our coach, I’ll also be battling a good boxer judging from what I have seen on record. This training program, I have followed it to a T because I know it will be good for me.”
Jerwin Ancajas says "We both are going to benefit in this fight, we put our name into it. Even if we're both Filipino, we are making history. In the US we will give them a good fight, a Filipino versus a Filipino, we are preparing a lot and have been eager to see who will win when that day comes."
Survival Instinct will happen on May 13 and it will be a great day for boxing but do know this will be a whole month event so they will feature more fights on different dates.
