Espinosa to finally receive his long-overdue award

Former World Boxing Association bantamweight and World Boxing Council featherweight champion Luisito "Lindol" Espinosa is finally coming back to the Philippines March 22 to receive a long-overdue award, as world boxing champion, in the 8th Gabriel “Flash” Elorde Awards Night on March 25 at the Centennial Hall of the Manila Hotel.

After a 10-year stay in the United States, Espinosa was invited to come home by promoter Johnny Elorde to receive the award when they met in San Francisco, California last December. Espinosa, who won in his WBC featherweight title defense against Carlos Rios of Argentina in 1997 in Koronadal, will be honored as a former world and international boxing champion during the 2007 Elorde Awards Night-Banquet of Champions. Espinosa, 40, is one of only four Filipinos to have won titles in two different divisions after brothers Gerry and Dodie Boy Penalosa and Manny Pacquiao.

“The honor is long overdue,” said the young Elorde, who added that Espinosa was to have been included in the roster of former world boxing champions during the first staging of the Elorde Awards in 2000. After stopping Rios in 1997, Espinosa went to the US and never returned.

I would be more happy for him if he will instead receive his purse which is also long overdue.

Yeah, give him the money that he was due. Fock the award. Honor him by paying him what he deserves.

I wonder what is the status of the case.. If I am Manny the best that I can do for Louie is to use my TRAPO friends and tell them that if Louie does not get what is due to him, I will not appear on any of your gatherings, invitations, parades and will vocally say TRAPOS are all greedy Azz.
