Of all the current roster of Filipino pugilists trying to make a name for himself in the boxing world, Bernabe Concepcion seem to be the odd man out. He does not speak Cebuano, he’s managed by Aljoe Jaro and is promoted by Toprank, when almost every other rising Pinoy boxer aside from Manny Pacquaio has been at one time or another affiliated with ALA and is promoted by Golden Boy.

The result, he fights mostly in the states and in Mexico now, defending his NABF and WBC youth Super bantam belts – and would continue to do so until the law of averages catches up with him and snaps his 17 win-streak. Concepcion has not been beaten in three years, and the only blemish in his record was a majority decision loss against a veteran Filipino fighter early in his career, in a fight that could have gone either way.

On April 26, Concepcion will again defend his belt against in Mexico against former US Olympian and Golden-gloves champ Torrence “Dynamite” Daniels, in a fight that on paper would seem like an easy win for Concepcion but in boxing one can never be sure, especially if one fights on hostile territory – in the heart of Mexico of all places. There is also pressure coming from the Philippines as all eyes would be fixed on his performance this weekend, including those that would love to see him lose in order to advance their own prospects’ interests. It is no secret that Bob Arum is looking forward to putting him up against one of the current top title-holders, and that would mean another two or three years of waiting for other Pinoy prospects in his division. I can only imagine how these people would love nothing more than to see Concepcion lose quite shamefully. I wouldn’t even be surprised if they have an article or post ready as of this minute calling him a “bum” whether he wins or loses

Bernabe Concepcion is indeed in the crossroads and he can only count on himself to believe that he can do this. His fans are silent, his detractors ready to pounce. The crowd would be against him and the judges cannot be trusted as always. A date with Molitor or even Vazquez looms in the horizon…all he has do is believe in himself, and make believers out of those that don’t.

So what if he doesnt speak Cebuano. I dont get it, really.

ALA gyms are based in central visayas and its only natural that their boxers
came from the same region.

Top Rank, Inc. is one of the biggest promotional companies in the world. Even Pac is under the umbrella of Bob Arum.
Ive read that Arum is planning to pit Concepcion against Molitor this year.

Fighting in Mexico will even make Bernabe a greater fighter. Too much protection is not good to a boxer. Look what
happened to Bautista.

Aljoe Jaro is a good trainer. Better than ALAs, IMO.

Aljoe Jaro good trainer, yes! but bad manager, too bad Concepcion will get only 60% or less of his purse in every fight.

Poor Concepcion managed by greedy Aljoe (Leech) Jaro.

Torrence “Dynamite” Daniels is a bum. There is no homecourt here for Daniels. He's not Mexican. BTW, I am an Abe fan. No need for this kind of hype. He's really got it unlike the other boxer.

abe already has a very good boxing skills.
however, he should improve his inside game.
i would like to see him develop like miguel cotto as he is a physically gifted fighter.
he should also improve that hook to the body.

I agree with you... Abe really seems to be the odd man out. He's not been receiving the same attention like what boom2x and the rest of our upcoming boxers are enjoying right now. But I think under-hype is better than being overhyped... he's trying to work his way up without an aid of a hyping machine... that's the difference between him and boom2x and I just hope that their fate will be different as well.8)

Abe Concepcion is in the right track, he should not be confident like the overhyped Bumx2!
So that he will not end up kissing the canvass.

After Daniels, he will be pitted to Molitor.:wink:
Probably, last quarter of this year.
