Pacquiao batters Broner
in lopsided fight

Manny Pacquiao put on a master class in elite boxing yesterday with a 12-round demolition of Adrien Broner, defending his welterweight title in his first fight on US soil in two years -- and his first as a 40-year-old.

Pacquiao easily won with an impressive display of superior hand speed and destructive power that landed him a unanimous decision victory over the much younger American at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas.

The Filipino star almost knocked Broner down twice in the seventh and ninth rounds and showed that he can still be a force in the highly-competitive division despite turning 40 last month.

Ultramarathoners set to conquer
Bacolod-Dumaguete 134-mile race

Two women, law enforcers, and two from Negros Occidental are just among those who signified their intent to conquer the 134-mile race covering Negros Island on January 25-27.

Organized by Endurance Challenge Philippines, the race will kick off in Bacolod City and will end in Dumaguete City two days later.

Two women runners, Jocelyn Ycong, a public servant from Cebu and office worker Azineth Balbuting of Quezon, Bukidnon will join the eight men in their attempt to conquer Negros and though Ycong admits she may or may not be able to finish the race, “the pride of doing it with all honesty is what she stands for.”
