Bryan Miguel Ortiala: From Ghetto to Glory











Boxing has been one of the most popular sports in the country today thanks to Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao, Nonito ‘The Filipino Flash’ Donaire and other Filipino boxers who put our country in the global map because of this sport.

Meet the future of Philippine boxing. Born Bryan Miguel M. Ortiala on January 26, 2001 to Mr. Ernie Ortiala  and Ms. Ma. Nora Ortiala in Las Pinas City, this 5-foot-3 young flyweight boxer promises to have a greater career ahead as he is now part of the CALABARZON delegation for this year’s Palarong Pambansa in Bigan City, Ilocos Sur. He is representing Cavite province in this year’s RSC.

“This is the sports that my father taught me when I was still a kid, that is why I love the world of boxing. My grandfather is also a boxer, and I know that boxing runs in our family’s blood”, said Bryan. Coming from a family of boxers, he was inspired to be one because of his Uncle Rico, a former world boxing champion.

He has been reaping accolades in boxing in his hometown, yet this will be the first time that he is going to represent his school, his division, and now his region. “When I told them I’m going to play boxing, some of them didn’t believe at first. I am small, a little skinny, but when I showed them my medals from outside the school tournaments, and showed them my skills in the boxing ring, they did believe”, added Bryan.
                                                                                             
Aside from boxing, he also likes to play and watch basketball games. His idol in boxing is 8 time world division champion Emmanuel Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire. Eating vegetables and fruits, according to Bryan, is something that helps him to be physically fit for the game. When it comes to his training, gym and oval running are best for amateur boxers like him.

Bryan’s ambition in life is to be successful and to help his family. His advice to those young kids who also would like to become a boxer someday, “Dream big and persevere in life. Don’t forget to pray to our Almighty God”. With skills and talent combined with unceasing faith in God, this boxing lad will definitely reach his dreams in the near future.
