Albay VG Lagman hails PH’s newest boxing champ Mark Magsayo
Albay Vice Governor Edcel Lagman has lauded the country’s newest boxing champion Mark “Magnifico” Magsayo.
“Si Mark “Magnifico” Magsayo is our country’s newest (and 5th so far) world boxing champion at present,” said Lagman.
“Kasama niya na si Nonito Donaire, Jerwin Ancajas, John Riel Casimero and Mark Cuatro. Pero, sa lima si Magnifico ang pinaka-exciting,” he added.
Magsayo became the WBC featherweight after he defeated Gary Russell Jr. on Sunday.
“Sana lang he gets a better trainer. Freddie Roach can still be one of his trainers pero he shouldn’t be his main trainer,” said Lagman.
“My honest opinion: dapat si Nacho Beristain! Hands down the best (na buhay pa! Haha) Sobrang gagaling si Magnifico as a counter-puncher. Yan ang medyo kulang sa skills set niya sa ngayon,” he added.
