Warlito Parrenas was no match for WBO junior bantamweight titleholder Naoya Inoue, being stopped in two rounds in Tokyo, Japan

MANILA, Philippines – Filipino boxer Warlito Parrenas fell well short in his first world title opportunity on Tuesday, December 29, as he was stopped in two rounds by WBO junior bantamweight champion Naoya Inoue at Ariake Colosseum in Tokyo, Japan. The time of stoppage was 1:20.

Parrenas (24-7-1, 21 knockouts) of Cadiz City, Philippines was no match for the speed and power of the 22-year-old Inoue (9-0, 8 knockouts), being dropped early in round two along the ropes. Parrenas, 32, rose up on unsteady legs, attempting to fight back before being dropped again by a right cross, followed by two left hooks as he was on the way down. Parrenas banged the canvas to show his frustration but was deemed unable to continue by referee Mike Ortega.

The loss is Parrenas’ first since 2012, when he was knocked out in one round by Oscar Blanquet, also in Japan. Parrenas had been unbeaten in 8 straight fights heading into the bout, but had been held to a draw by David Carmona in a fight for the interim WBO title in July.

The win was Inoue’s first fight in a year, as he was sidelined for most of 2015 due to a hand injury. In 2014 Inoue accomplished one of the most difficult of feats, winning world titles in two separate divisions. He stopped Adrian Hernandez to earn the WBC junior flyweight title, before defeating Omar Narvaez last year for the junior bantamweight title he currently owns.

One more Filipino boxer will get a crack at a world title before the year ends when former national amateur standout Vic Saludar faces WBO strawweight titleholder Kosei Tanaka on New Year’s Eve in Nagoya, Japan. –

Carmona y Parrenas por interino OMB

box_asb_carmona300x300

MÉXICO — No será el 13 de junio en Nueva York pero sí el 20 de junio en México cuando se enfrente el capitalino David Carmona y el filipino Warlito Parrenas por el cetro interino súper mosca de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo, informó a ESPN el promotor Félix ‘Tutico’ Zabala Jr., director de All Star Boxing.

La pelea se estaba negociando inicialmente para el 13 de junio, en la velada que estelarizarán Nicholas Walters y Miguel Marriaga en el Teatro del Madison Square Garden en Nueva York. Ahí mismo peleará el prospecto boricua Félix Verdejo en contra del prospecto mexicano Iván Nájera.

Sin embargo, recién se recibió el aval de parte de la OMB para el cetro interino, toda vez que el monarca de las 115 libras, el japonés Naoya Inoue, se encuentra lesionado de una mano y no regresará sino hasta en unos meses más. De acuerdo con el mandato de la OMB, el ganador de la pelea entre Carmona y Parrenas deberá unificar con Inoue (8-0, 7 KO).

Carmona, de 24 años, oriundo de la Ciudad de México, es un joven talentoso que ha sido promovido por All Star Boxing de ‘Tutico’ Zabala Jr. y Producciones Deportivas de Ricardo Maldonado. Disputó ya el cetro de la OMB en las 115 libras pero no tuvo suerte ante el argentino Omar Narváez, con quien perdió en diciembre de 2013.Sin embargo, el púgil capitalino con marca de 19-2-4 y 8 nocauts, se recuperó poco a poco y logró tres valiosos triunfos desde entonces ante rivales de la talla de Ricardo Rodríguez, Martín Casillas y Daniel Lozano. En sus últimas 18 salidas al ring tiene salgo de 15 victorias, una derrota y dos empates.

Con esos triunfos, que le valieron la faja Latina de la OMB, Carmona regresó para ubicarse en los primeros clasificados, exactamente en el segundo peldaño del organismo que dirige Francisco Valcárcel desde Puerto Rico. Parrenas, su rival en turno, es el primer clasificado.

Parrenas, de 31 años, es originario de Filipinas, tiene marca de 24-6 y un alto número de nocauts con 31. Ha hilado siete victorias de su última caída, en junio de 2012 ante el mexicano Óscar Blanquet en Japón. En sus últimas 13 salidas al ring, ha perdido solo una vez y noqueó a 11 de sus enemigos.

De acuerdo con ‘Tutico’ Zabala, la pelea se realizará el 20 de junio, probablemente en la Ciudad de México o en algún lugar de la República Mexicana, y se está negociando con Zanfer para ver si la pelea puede ir por Televisión Azteca.

Warlito Parrenas trains with altitude mask ahead of bout with David Carmona

8216679

On June 20th we will see Filipino slugger Warlito Parrenas (24-6, 21) take part in his most significant bout to date, a WBO Interim Junior Bantamweight title bout against Mexico’s David Carmona (19-2-4, 8).

The hard hitting Parrenas seems to know that this is possibly a career changing match up and one that, if he wins, will really put him on the boxing map and open up a potential major pay day against Japanese sensation Naoya Inoue (8-0, 7). He’ll also know that for this bout he needs to be at his very best.

To help prepare for the bout Parrenas has, for the first time in his career, began training with an altitude mask. The mask, which replicates the conditions of training at altitude, is often used by athletes wanting the benefit of altitude training whilst managing to train in more normal environment. It can help replicate the conditions that a fighter may find themselves in, especially if they are set to fight at altitude, like Parrenas is with his bout set to take place in the elevated Mexico city.

Parrenas has described the experience as making him “feel like a super hero” though has confessed that the training is difficult with the mask, which limits the amount of oxygen a fighter can breath in at any time. It does however seem to have been a smart decision considering the conditions that he is set to fight in.
