Melindo leads Pinoy Pride XI

Milan Melindo, one of the most promising prize fighters in the country, leads the cast of boxers when the eleventh edition of ALA Promotions and ABS-CBN Sports’ Pinoy Pride, the Philippines vs. The World, opens 2012 with the first public sparring event at the Pacific Mall in Mandaue City at 5 p.m. today.

The public sparring will give the Filipino boxing fans a preview of what to expect come fight night on January 28 at the Pacific Grand Ballroom of the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino, ALA Promotions marketing officer Chad Cañares said.

Establishing himself as the next boxer to watch out for, Melindo’s dream for a possible world championship will be challenged by former WBC and WBO Latino light flyweight champion Mexican Juan Esquer.

Runners brace for
Cebu marathon

CEBU CITY - Runners joining the 42K Cebu City Marathon tomorrow are bracing to snag a benchmark time in the race.

Aside from the attractive finisher’s medal, a goal accomplished will be considered as the sweetest victory once they cross the finish line.

Cesar Bordalba, the campus director of Lifebox Cebu, a youth ministry under Victory Christian Fellowship, had long been wanting to run a full marathon since his first 5K run in the 10-10-10 CCM.

Three golfers share lead in Phl Am

MANILA - Jobim Carlos and Singapore’s Gregory Foo wavered coming home and settled for a pair of 70s while Clyde Mondilla birdied No. 8 on his way home to force a three-way tie for the lead at the start of the Philippine Amateur Open Golf Championship at Cangolf’s north course in Laguna yesterday.

Carlos, chasing a second straight crown after topping the NGAP National Doubles last week, nearly blew a four-under card with bogeys on Nos. 16 and 17 for a 34-36 while Foo, the reigning Singapore junior champion, missed seizing the solo lead with a final-hole bogey for a pair of 35s as the fancied bets lived up to the hype and took charge of the star-studded field in the 72-hole championship.
