Dodie Boy and Gerry Penalosa Fist Casting at the 17th Elorde Awards

Can brothers be legends at the same time?  Doddie Boy and Gerry Penalosa is a testament that it can. Both of them are renowned boxers and champions from the Philippines. They recently had their fist casting ceremony to immortalize their fist for future generations to remember them by.

Diosdado "Dodie Boy" Peñalosa

Peñalosa won the Philippine lightweight title on November 26, 1982 by a 12th round stoppage against Romy Austria. He defended it against Alfredo Guanzon on January 30, 1983 although the bout ended in a no-contest for unknown reasons.

In 1983, he became the first IBF light flyweight champion with a technical knockout win over Satoshi Shingaki who would later become the inaugural IBF bantamweight champion. He defended the title three times before vacating the belt. In 1986, he moved up to challenge WBA Flyweight Title holder Hilario Zapata but lost.

Peñalosa later captured the IBF Flyweight Title the following year with a knockout win over Hi Sup Shin. He lost the belt in his first defense to Chang-Ho Choi. In 1989, he would get another shot at the IBF Flyweight Title against Dave McAuley, but lost a split decision. He retired in 1995.

Gerry Peñalosa (born August 7, 1972) is a Filipino former professional boxer. He won the WBC super flyweight and WBO bantamweight titles, as well as challenged for world titles at super bantamweight.

A very good defensive boxer and a counter-puncher, Peñalosa was knocked down once in his career by Young Joo Cho at 2:45 of the first round. According to Freddie Roach and other Filipino boxing analysts, Peñalosa is the best technical boxer that ever came from the Philippines. His intelligence and excellent footwork were seen in every fight.  Source: (Wikipedia)
