EUMIR MARCIAL – PINOY MIDDLEWEIGHT PRODIGY

Published

on

In time for the coming Christmas, a new star was born.

A new conqueror has made his debut in the professional world — meet Eumir Felix Marcial.

He is a new breed of Filipino boxer. He is rare, a gem that will soon become expensive after being moulded by time.

Bright future is set for the Pinoy Olympian who will take part for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics after his convincing debut as a professional boxer under the supervision of Manny Pacquiao and the Manny Pacquiao Promotions.

Second, Marcial is rare because he is competing in the middleweight division. Most of our boxers are in the lower weight classes.

This is an opportunity to showcase that Filipino can fight at a high level in the higher division.

In the middleweight, you have lots of great boxers that became part of the what-if opponents for Pacquiao. Guys like Saul “Canelo” Alvarez – the current pound-for-pound king and Gennady “Triple G” Golovkin.

It’s too early to compare Marcial to those top guys, hence, let us watch his debut highlights and in-depth.

The 25-year old Marcial fought the 29-year old Andrew Whitfield. It was scheduled for four-rounds and Marcial took home the victory with a unanimous decision.

Marcial displayed an aggressive start where he connected 11 clean punches.

He likes to do body punches as well. Alvarez is known for heavy body shots too.

Although he did not knock out his opponent, it can be clearly seen that he has that power punches.

What I noticed as well is that he has the speed as a middleweight.  He can swiftly move from left to right and dodge.

Not to mention that he is being trained by legendary trainer Freddie Roach.

Eumir Marcial definitely has the potential and it’s a matter of time before they can maximize it for good.

What are your observations on his fight? Comment it below!

Ruiz downs Ortiz in heavyweight title eliminator

Andy Ruiz Jr. is slowly getting back as a heavyweight title contender after dominating Luis Ortiz.

The former unified heavyweight world champion knocked down “King Kong” Ortiz thrice to win via unanimous decision.

Next in line for the boxer who had one of the greatest upsets in boxing history is to face the former WBC king Deontay Wilder.

Wilder, who has been out of the picture since being destroyed by Tyson Fury in their rematch, will make a return to face Robert Helenius before eventually fighting the Mexican Ortiz.

The Ruiz-Wilder bout is a big chance to happen as both heavyweights are under the boxing promoter Al Haymon.

“We’re always looking for great exciting fights we love to give the fans,” said Wilder, who was on ringside during the Ruiz-Ortiz clash.

“So if that’s what is lined up next, I’ve got to handle business and after that, we can get it on.”

KSI returns and wins two fights in one night

Famous YouTuber KSI returned to the boxing ring after some time and he announced it by dominating two fights in one night.

Olajide Olatunji, his real name, first defeated Swarmz, a Briton rapper who happened to be his friend as well. The match ended in the second round and then after several other matches, KSI stepped up once more to TKO Luis Alcaraz Pineda, a true professional boxer.

But despite these wins KSI’s pro record remains at 1-0 as both fights were not given a green light as officially-sanctioned bouts.

One of the undercards in the event was Salt Papi, a Tiktok star that is a Filipino. He won easily in his first fight with an impressive knock out.

Philippines left with no boxing world champion

2022 is not yet over but we’ve already seen the fall of our boxing world champions one
by one.
And with Mark Magsayo failing to defend his WBC featherweight belt in his first title
defense, it left the Philippines with no more current world champion in the sport.
Magsayo went through a heartbreaker with a split decision loss against Rey Vargas of
Mexico.
Rene Mark Cuarto also lost the IBF minimumweight title to another Mexican boxer
named Daniel Valladares.
Just last month, it was Nonito “The Filipio Flash” Donaire who surrendered his WBC
Bantamweight belt to the Japanese Monster Noaya Inoue, his second defeat to the now
unified bantamweight champion.
Jerwin Ancajas likewise suffered the same fate while Johnriel Casimero got his WBO
bantamweightbelt stripped from him due to violation in the weight cut guidelines.
Now, the questions afloat are who will be the next Pinoy champion? Will there be
another Pinoy champ?
With Manny Pacquiao retired from professional boxer after losing his belt as well to
Yordenis Ugas, who will be the next boxer that will give the Philippines back its pride?
Up and coming star Eumir Marcial is on the list after capturing the bronze medal in the
Tokyo Olympics. Magsayo is not off the chart as well as he is still young, it’s just a
matter of bouncing back.
