By Nick Giongco

Unbeaten super-welterweight Shawn Porter of Ohio and lightweight hotshot Urbano Antillon of California arrived in the Philippines early Sunday morning after a 15-hour flight from Los Angeles. Porter and Antillon were selected by Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach to work with Manny Pacquiao, who is revving up for a Nov. 14 bout with Miguel Cotto at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Roach, who is camping out with Pacquiao in Baguio, said sparring could start as early as Tuesday afternoon. “We’re ready to go (sparring),” said Antillon, who is of Mexican lineage. Porter and Antillon are scheduled to travel to Baguio by land on Monday morning. They’ll be joined in the five-to-six hour journey by Shawn’s dad Ken. Porter, the 2007 US National Golden Gloves middleweight champion, is said to be a clone of Cotto. The Porters and Antillon were fetched at the airport by movie bad guy Cris Aguilar, who, in reality is a nice fellow. Aguilar used to be one of Pacquiao’s bodyguards. “Just give my regards to Manny,” said the hefty Aguilar. Bob Arum’s Top Rank Inc. is staging the Pacquiao-Cotto slugfest dubbed “Firepower.”

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (38-2, 37 KOs) successfully defended his world title against previously undefeated #1 ranked contender Cristobal Arreola (27-1, 24 KOs) via tenth round TKO on Saturday night at the STAPLES Arena in Los Angeles. Klitschko was able to score effectively at a distance against the aggressive Arreola, who made Vitali work very hard. The 38-year-old champion, however, was in tremendous condition and moved around the ring incredibly well for a 6’7, 250+ pound fighter at any age. Arreola could never find a tactic that worked, taking a beating in every round. The fight got more one-sided as the rounds progressed and referee Jon Schorle finally stopped the punishment at the end of round ten upon the request of Arreola’s corner.

Pendarvis-Herrera Oct 9

By Lee Bates

In an intriguing matchup Cleotis “Mookie” Pendarvis (9-1-2, 3 KOs) will square off against unbeaten Maurico Herrera (12-0, 6 KOs) on October 9th. The bout which is scheduled for eight rounds will take place at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California at a contracted weight of 142 pounds. Thompson Boxing will promote. The bout is unusual in that prospects building their careers don’t often face each other. Pendarvis feels he’s up for the challenge. “I definitely respect Herrera and know I will be in a tough fight with a very strong fighter,” he said. “Having sparred with Oscar De La Hoya, Edwin Valero and Shane Mosley, I’ve been in with strong fighters and held my own. People underestimate my power and that’s OK. I don’t believe Herrera can outbox me . We will settle who the better fighter is come Oct 9th.”
