ABDULHAMID to Face EX-IBF Pan Pacific Champ IK YANG IN China

Adam Diu “Big Daddy” Abdulhamid


PROMISING Adam Diu “Big Daddy” Abdulhamid of General Santos City is facing another tough opponent as he fights former IBF Pan Pacific super lightweight and WBO Asia Pacific lightweight champion Ik “Wild Man” Yang of China on November 2 in Chongquing.

“The fight is scheduled for 8 rounds in the junior welterweight division,” said Sanman Promotions Chief Executive Officer Jim Claude “JC” Manangquil.

Adbulhamid (11W-4L-0D, 4 KOs), who fights for the Sanman Boxing Gym will be going to China together with chief trainer Romeo “Dodong” Desabille.

“Adam is ready and excited for the big opportunity ahead of him,” said Manangquil.

The 22-year old Abdulhamil is currently training very hard at the Sanman Boxing Gym for his only second fight for this year.

“He is now in great shape,” Manangquil said.

Abdulhamid is coming off from a unanimous decision loss to the undefeated Thai Apinan Kongsong (9-0) held August 23 in Bangkok.

Ik Yang (19W-2L-0D, 14KOs), on the other hand, has been inactive since he suffered a 6th round TKO loss to Leonardo Zappavigna last July 23, 2106 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. 

It was Yang’s second straight loss after dropping a UD to Cesar Rene Cuenca in their battle for the vacant IBF World super lightweight title last July 18, 2015 in Macao.

Yang bounced back from a first-round knockdown to also send down Cuenca in the 5th round. But Yang was deducted in the 12th round. 

Yang won the vacant IBF Pan Pacific super lightweight title by stopping Surasak Makordae in the 5th round on Dec. 16, 2014 in Shanghai. He retained it via a 6th round TKO over Komsan Polsan on March 7, 2015 at the Cotai Arena in Venetian Resort, Macao.

Yang also earlier captured the vacant WBO Asia Pacific lightweight crown with an 8th round TKO win against Sukpraserd Ponpitak in 2014 in Shanghai.

“I think Adam has a big chance against Ik Yang who has not fought more than a year already,” said Manangquil.

Just what you can do or buy with the bonuses given to the players?
Last week, Ginebra captured their first back to back Governors Cup Championship. A few days ago,  they celebrated with the fans and today, Ginebra players are either buying a new car, a vacation house or enjoying their hard earned bonus money. 
But just how much money did the players actually get?

According to a good friend and a Ginebra insider, each players were given different amounts of bonuses depending on their salaries and performances during the finals. So, you can safely say that Justin Brownlee and LA Tenorio are the most fortunate. The rest of the players, however, seems very happy as well with what they got.

We were told that the equivalent amount could be 10x more their…
