Filipino world boxing champion Johnriel Casimero once again went viral due to a controversial statement online.
KAMI learned that Casimero threw shade at his fellow Filipino boxing champion, Jerwin Ancajas.
According to Casimero, Ancajas is still not well-known despite having eight title defenses already because he has not fought tough opponents.
He also criticized Ancajas’ promoter, Bob Arum, for allegedly using his name to raise Ancajas’ popularity.
“Eight defenses and he is yet to be very popular because you give him easy opponents.
“How can he be popular so what this is what you're going to mention him with me to be popular. Bob, what are you doing?” Casimero wrote on social media.
Johnriel Casimero is a Filipino professional boxer born in Ormoc, Leyte. He is the reigning WBO Bantamweight Champion and previously held titles in the flyweight and junior flyweight divisions.
Aside from Casimero, another Filipino who is making the country proud in the sport of boxing is none other than Senator Manny Pacquiao. He famously defeated top welterweight champion Keith Thurman in 2019 to capture the WBA crown.
Veteran fighter Nonito Donaire also made waves in the boxing scene when he and Naoya Inoue won The Ring 2019 Fight of the Year award for their epic match in Japan. Although Donaire lost, many fans praised the aging Pinoy fighter for putting up a great and gutsy effort against one of the best boxers in the world.
