LAST November 18, 2017, Harmonito “Hammer” dela Torre saw his streak of 19 straight wins come to an abrupt end when he absorbed a unanimous decision loss to Olympian Tugstsogt Nyambayar in Las Vegas, Nevada USA.

Two weeks from now, Dela Torre will have a chance to get back on track when he battles Jovany Rota in the undercard of “Undefeated” fight card slated April 28 in Glan, Saranggani Province.

The loss to Nyambayar dropped Dela Torre’s record to 19W-1L-0D (12Kos) and the Sanman Boxing Gym fighter vowed to pull off a big bounce back win against Rota.

“I learned a lot from my first loss. I lost to a great boxer, who is a silver medalist in the Olympics. 

I thought I did well but I came up short. I will be back stronger than ever,” said Dela Torre.

Dela Torre admitted that the loss was a bitter pill to swallow but the debacle also taught him to work even harder.

“Accepting the loss was very hard at first but I realized that I have to train harder so that it won’t happen again,” said Dela Torre.

He may have faltered against Nyambayar but Dela Torre said no way that he is going to give up on his dream to become a world champion especially now that he has an inspiration.

“My daughter is my big inspiration. I need to be a champion to give her a good future. I will do everything to become a champion,” said Dela Torre.

In the upcoming card, Dela Torre said there is no room for complacency although he will be up against an opponent who has more losses than wins.

Rota has nine wins, six of them by knockouts, and 13 losses.

“I’ve seen some of his fights. I am confident but in boxing, you can never underestimate any opponent. This is very important for me as my team told me that if I win this one, I have a big fight coming,” he said.

Jim Claude Manangquil, CEO of Sanman Promotions, agreed that the duel with Rota is an important one for Dela Torre.

“This is a very important fight for Harmonito. We are confident that he can bounce back from his previous loss and return to title contention,” said Mananquil.

The upcoming card will be headlined by Jade Bornea, who will take on Danrick Sumabong in the main event.

Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game?

In the Lakers' game against the Miami Heat, there were two plays that caught my attention. One was that outlet pass by LeBron James to an open Lonzo Ball who was open for a layup. No one was even close to defending Lonzo at the point and he chose to softly lay it in which […] MoreThe post Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game? appeared first on Powcast Sports.

Details on Kiefer Ravena's PBA Salary Revealed, 350,000 a Month!

It's huge! Kiefer Ravena's salary means a lot is expected from him

If NLEX could offer him more then maybe they would but for now, Keifer Ravena would have to settle for a maximum rookie salary that's worth 8.5 million in three years. 
The 2nd overall pick of this year's draft may have waited to get into the PBA but that delay was worth it after the team who drafted him showed big confidence and locked him for three years. 
As per our source, his salary on a monthly basis will be at  P150,000 a month for the first year. Then will go to P225,000 and the last year would be at  P350,000. The salary isn't the highest as Terrence Romeo and JunMar Fajardo, two of the biggest names in the PBA is getting more or less half a million every month.








At 24 years old, however, the former Ateneo star is only one of the two players this rookie class who's getting a max deal, one of which is Rookie Christian Standhardinger.
