Espinosa back soon
By EDDIE ALINEA

CALIFORNIA — Tie a yellow ribbon ‘round the old, oak tree. Luisito Espinosa is coming home.

Armed with a green card and a decent job, Espinosa, former World Boxing Council featherweight champion, is looking forward to going back to Manila and be with his two children.

"Puwede ko nang makita uli ang mga anak ko," Espinosa, 39, told this writer over the phone last week. "Matagal-tagal na rin kaming magkakahiwalay at sabik na akong makita sila."

Espinosa, the first Filipino fighter to win the world bantamweight championship and the only second to capture two world titles outside of Dodie Boy Penalosa, has a son, John Louie, and a daughter, Janica, with estranged wife Mari Cherrie.

His children were left under the care of his mother in-law.

"Babalik ako, sigurado ‘yon. Maaring hindi pa sa ngayon, pero basta nakasettle down na ako sa trabaho ko, lipad ako agad. Ngayon pang may green card na ako," he vowed.

Working as a stocker at Cosco, a membership wholesale store chain, has given Espinosa’s life a semblance of normalcy after it was nearly ruined by a case involving non-payment of his purse in a title fight held in Koronadal in South Cotabato and his separation from his wife.

The death of his father, Dio, was another blow dealt .

"Namatay ang tatay ko nang hindi ko man lang nakita," he said. "Nalaman ko lang sa kapatid ko ng tumawag siya at humihingi ng tulong para sa libing."

Nine years after defending his WBC featherweight crown via a seventh round stoppage of Argentine challenger Carlos Rius, in a fight held in Koronadal, Espinosa, who for years has practically been leading a vagabond life, is still at a loss over the promoters’ inability to pay him his 0,000 purse.

"Siyam na taon na. Nagretire na ako, pati ang nakalaban ko. Siya bayad na, ako hindi pa. Paano nangyari yun?," Espinosa said.

"Sana naman bayaran na nila ako. Sana may tumulong sa akin para makasingil. Kapag nabayaran ako at nakapiling ko ang mga anak ko, mas kumpleto na ang buhay ko. Malaking halaga yun na magagamit sa negosyo para mapalaki ng maayos ang mga anak ko."

The case is pending in the sala of Judge Rosario Cruz of the Regional Trial Court and has remained undecided despite efforts from some quarters to have it settled in favor of the beleaguered Filipino fighter.

"Pinaghirapan ko yun. Pinagbasagan ko ng mukha. Bakit yung nakalaban ko binayaran? Bakit ako hindi? Kampeon ako, sa atin ginawa ang laban, ako pa ang na-agrabiyado. Ganun ba talaga ang hustisya sa atin?"he asked with bitterness.

Let this site be the voice for Luisito Espinosa!!!

Louie may not get his money but those who were involved in duping him will all get their loads of badluck.

True...
What comes around, goes around, and the sooner the better.

One good thing is Louie's now got a green card, and the chance
to see his two kids, priceless!

people behind this will only shrug their shoulders
while hiding behind the 'saya' of those who are
in power.

tatang dio will meet them someday, then they'll
see who's got the better share!

I think GAB Commissioner, Eric Buhain, should lead the efforts in trying to help Louisito. Gov. Pinol tried his part but it would take more than one person. What ever happened to the Fund Raiser event held on Louisito's behalf?

With Manny's percieved closeness to the President, has this ever been mentioned in his trips to the Malacanang?

I hope Manny realizes that as soon as his ring triumphs have subsided, he will also be treated this way by his so called friends. Thus he should be very vigilant.
