DAVAO CITY, Sept. 7 — Five of the eight boxers from the MP Davao Stable scored contrasting wins in the Tibay ng Pinoy X: Bakbakan sa Labangal held Sunday at the Barangay Labangal gym during the closing of the annual Tuna Festival in General Santos City.

Genesis Libranza survived against veteran Michael “Matibay” Rodriguez via a stopped Jilo Merlin in 2:12 of the first round in the main supporting bout.

Three others from the Davao City-based boxing gym of 8-division world champion Manny Pacquiao also won in the undercard of the free boxing show of the MP Promotions.

Six-rounder Ronie “Navarette” Baldonado connected a right body shot against Mark Marticio of Sindangan Mayor Boy Se Stable for a knockout in 2:57 of the 4th round.

“Hagtik ug kumo ning bataa ni. Kulang na lang sa depensa kay bata pa siya. Pero puedeng ma-develop,” said MP Davao Stable chief trainer Raides “Nonoy” Neri.

Baldonado, 19, a native of North Cotabato, is still undefeated with four straight wins all by knockouts.

He only won two of his six fights during his amateur days in General Santos.

“Na-develop dyud ko pagsulod nako sa MP gym tungod sa programa ni coach Nonoy Neri (My ability was developed when I entered MP gym because of Nonoy Neri’s program)

GILBERT GOMERA OF GOLINGAN STABLE MAINTAINED HIS CLEAN RECORD BUT VIA A CONTROVERSIAL SPLIT DECISION OVER RYAN REY PONTERAS OF BRAVEHEART STABLE IN THEIR EXCITING 8-ROUNDER MATCH.
