Joe Noynay Eager and Excited to Become a World Champion


Young and talented Filipino boxer named Joe Noynay is eager to become a world champion like every young boxer's hero Manny Pacquiao to lift his family out of poverty.

"Nag boxing ako dahil sa gusto ko maging (world) champion katulad nila Manny Pacquiao, at gusto ko rin matulongan pamilya ko na ma iahon sa kahirapan."

Native of Bogo City in Cebu Joe Noynay is the eldest among his five siblings and a son of a municipal worker and a housewife. He began boxing at the age of 13 after turning professionally at the age of 18. When he turned pro he left his family in Bogo to train in Manila. He occasionally goes home and visits his family in Bogo after his every fights abroad.

Joe Noynay stepped into the ring for his first professional bout on September 7,2013 against fellow debutant Jestoni Autida who eventually became WBA Asia champion. Noynay won the fight in four rounds, in a unanimous decision. The victory pushed him on a 10 fights win streak.

In June 2015 Noynay won a bout against veteran Edison Berwela, taking the WBC EPBC Super bantamweight title- his first boxing title.

Following his wins, Noynay fought for another International title (WBC International Super bantamweight title) against fellow world title caliber Alie Laurel. Despite a knockdown scored by Noynay in the late rounds the fight went into the distance and ended in a draw.

Determined Noynay fought again for the same title against tough Richard Pumicpic just 2 and a half months after his 12 round war against Laurel. Unfortunately, Noynay suffered the first loss of his career by a close 8th Round Technical Decision. The scores were 76-75 (3X) and should have been another draw if he was not deducted a point due to an accidental head butt.

After his first defeat, Noynay bounced back stronger to record two consecutive wins in 2016.

In early 2017, Joe Noynay suffered his second defeat in a very competitive unanimous decision set back to Japanese Reiya Abe where Noynay impressed in a very solid performance despite the loss.

Noynay went to China where he scored an upset win over formerly undefeated hometown favorite Pan Jing Xiang (8-1,4) at Zhongshan and captured the WBO Youth Asia Pacific & WBC ABCO Silver Super Featherweight Title.

"Masaya ako nung nanalo ako sa China, hindi ko akalain na magiging Asia Champion ako ule at lalo akong nag pupursigi na maging world champion"

He also indicated that he is more comfortable in Super featherweight division (130 pounds).

"Para sa akin, komportable na ako sa, timbang na ito"

Joe Noynay (13-2-1,4) asks for support from his people of Bogo City for his upcoming title defense against Mexican Hector Garcia (12-6-2,7) this coming April 7 at Celestino Martinez Sr. Sports & Cultural Complex, in Bogo City.
