I think so. Bakit di na lang bigyan ng govt natin ng financial assistance si Espinosa? I guess they are taking him for granted now. They can afford to give bonuses to Asian/SEAG medalists why not to Louie? So that he can start a new life.

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.

Pro boxers are not supported by the government because they are Pro. The Asian and SEAG medalists are supported thru the PSC. The funds of the PSC comes from PAGCOR.

Luisito can be somewhat of a celebrity here in Pinas since boxing was popularized by Manny. He can be a trainer, a small gym owner or a businessman of a small venture but he chose to work and live in the USA.

His wife who convinced him to migrate, left him for a caucasian when Lui was losing his fights and losing his money. His children are in Sampaloc, Manila.

i wonder why our idol Pacman can't seem to help Lui from this predicament considering MP's closeness to top government officials...??? maybe, it's a good idea for someone to lead petition for the Justice Department to expedite justice for Lui. it's almost impossible to comprehend how it could take this long and still no decision has been made.
this is one of the big reasons why our people don't trust our government no matter what they say. it's just so disappointing and frustrating for lots of people especially the poor. i truly hope, that Pacman can use his influence to persuade like Gov. Singson or Mayor Atienza to show their genuine support for true sports champions like mr. Espinosa...!!

cheers,

Boxing: Justice Delayed…Justice Denied for Luisito Espinosa
By Ron Galarpe - May 21, 2005

Freddie Roach at one time jokingly said Manny Pacquiao is the Mexican assassin. It was not actually a personal vendetta towards the Mexican boxers, it was simply more of a call to those top Mexican boxers in the featherweight division. Kidding or not, Roach may have only expressed his pride behind his ward Manny Pacquiao, especially after Pacquiao annihilated Barrera and dropped Juan Manuel Marquez to the canvas three times.

But long before Pacquiao came, there was actually a Filipino fighter that could be more suited to be called the Mexican assassin. Filipino great Luisito Espinosa who once held the bantamweight and featherweight belts had more Mexican victims that any Filipino boxers his country has ever produced.

Luisito Espinosa fought the best Mexican fighters in his prime and to name the best of them are Manuel Medina, Cobrita Gonzales, Cesar Soto and Juan Carlos Ramirez. Luisito in his 15-year career has victimized six tough Mexican fighters in his resume.

Luisito did not only beat the best Mexicans in his era, he also annihilated the best in Asia like Thailand's pride Khaokor Galaxy. In his colorful career of 15 years, Luisito held the WBA Bantamweight Title from 1989 to 1991 and the WBC Featherweight Belt from 1995 to 1999. In all his fights abroad, Luisito would always held high the Philippine Flag in enemy territory. In every victory, he made sure the Philippine Flag is wrapped around his body carrying it with pride.

Fast-forward and we want to know what happened now to the man who gave Philippine boxing so much pride in the 90's. It is very unfortunate to know that despite of the sacrifices his body gave to his country, he is not well cared of by his own people.

It was in the year 1997 when Luisito knocked out tough Argentinean Carlos Rios. In that fight, Luisito was to receive as specified in the contract $150,000 while Rios was to receive $60,000. Carlos Rios came home happily bringing with him the whole pie of his purse, but King Louie was left unpaid of the balance of around $130,000.

The said balance that the promoter promised to pay Luisito is still hanging up to now and is actually resting in the sala of Judge Rosario Cruz of the Manila Regional Trial Court.

Based on the facts I gathered, the seven-year old case only started its first hearing last year of July and the last one was November the same year. After these hearings, nothing significant has developed.

I hope the people involved will find pity on Espinosa who now stays in San Francisco doing odd jobs just to survive for his family, but the brutal part of Espinosa's life in California and the result of injustice in his ring career is the beating that he has been forced to perform again in the squared arena. Luisito is now nearing 38, two years ago he was knocked out in the 8th by Zahir Raheem, the following year he was knocked out by Carlos Navarro and this year, , Espinosa was knocked out by a younger Cristobal Cruz.

After the glory days Espinosa gave to his country, he does not deserve to be brutally left out like this.

Calling Lito Mondejar and Rod Nazario, if you are not guilty as you said, at least try to do something to help Luisito. To Gov. Larry De Pedro, are you still alive? And to Judge Rosario Cruz, this case has been languishing at the Manila Regional Trial Court, I believe you know the saying that "Justice delayed is justice denied".

Oyson: Will Luisito Espinosa ever get justice?
By Manuel N. Oyson, Jr.
Counter Punch

NO ONE, it seems, is owning up the failure of former WBC boxing champion Luisito Espinosa to receive until now the remaining balance of $130,349 (roughly P8 million) of his purse in his featherweight title defense against Carlos Rios, which took place more than seven years ago. Among those he is suing before the Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 173 are boxing promoters Rodolfo Nazario, Joselito Mondejar and Gov. Hilario de Pedro of South Cotabato.

The latest twist to this tragic tale of a former world champion who has been treated shabbily by those who took advantage of him while he was in his prime is that the defendants are now pointing an accusing finger at each other. Nazario has balked. He denies that he is responsible for Espinosa’s failure to receive his entire purse.

GUARANTEE. Both the Philippine Star and the Manila Standard came out with identical stories on Espinosa’s plight last week. They played up the denial of Nazario who claimed that he was being unjustly dragged into the case. “I never signed any document personally guaranteeing the purse of Espinosa.

It was Gov. de Pedro who personally guaranteed Espinosa’s purse. I merely ‘noted’ the alleged letter of guarantee,” Nazario said in answer to the complaint which has hibernated for more than five years.

Espinosa is trying to make ends meet as a green-card holder in mainland USA, taking odd jobs to keep body and soul together and to support a family.

Even his ailing father, Deo, needs medical attention as I write this. There is now blame-tossing on the part of the promoters of that uneventful fight on Dec. 6, 1997 in Koronadal “Rumble in the Mountains.” Espinosa’s failure to receive the balance of his purse. has practically left him to fend for himself, aided only by his lawyer.

FLOP. Nazario explained that he just accommodated the request of de Pedro and Espinosa’s Japanese manager Joe Koizumi to act as promoter because the two had no license to promote fights in the country. Nazario specifically mentioned that even Espinosa’s lawyer admitted this fact during a pre-trial hearing on Aug. 31, 2004. “Kung may nangako ni Espinosa si Gov. de Pedro yun,” Nazario said.

He added that he and former GAB chairman Dominador Cepeda only acted as witnesses tot the promissory note. The fight between Espinosa and Rios was a flop, box office-wise because of a computer glitch. Telecast transmission of that fight was interrupted and even delayed. The sponsors and the advertisers balked at paying for airtime that was not completely delivered. Espinosa retained his world title via a knockout but he was not paid his purse.

FORGOTTEN. Today, almost eight years later, Espinosa, the second Filipino to own two world championships in two different divisions, besides Dodie Boy Peñalosa, is neglected and almost forgotten by boxing officials concerned.

Others also partly blamed him for climbing up the ring against Rios when his purse was not yet settled. Burt then, it is said that he was persuaded to fight because then president Fidel V. Ramos was also interested. Espinosa won but was left holding an empty bag.

He sulked at the indifference shown by the GAB and others. He then left with his wife and children as immigrants to the US. He found odd jobs. He also appeared in a number of bouts. But his fists were not as explosive and deadly as they were then. His fight record in the US is pathetic. He appealed to his ninong, Eduardo Cojuangco, to bankroll one more title fight for him to earn a little money. Another appeal to President GMA to help him collect the balance of his purse has not received a positive result. Will Espinosa ever get justice in his lifetime?

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Pacquiao lost that fight, pure and simple, because he was not prepared enough to face a superior foe…Pacquiao, eager and brave, lost because he was incompetent.” – PDI sports columnist Recah Trinidad in his May 16 column “Bare Eye,” recalling Manny Pacquiao’s fight with Erik Morales two months ago in Las Vegas
