Undefeated Sanman protege in Jade Bornea will see action in Sanman’s Bubble Series facing Roland Jay Biendima in a super flyweight showdown on April 30 at the Sanman Gym. Bragging a record of W15-L0, Bornea is one of the treasured gems of the Gensan based boxing stable headed by JC Manangquil.
Bornea started his boxing journey with a colorful amateur career winning an Asian youth gold medal and a bronze in the prestigious AIBA Youth World Championship. In his amateur runs, he has beaten current IBF and WBA Superbantamweight Champion Murodjon Akhmadaliev who was also an Olympic silver medalist.
Jade has also started his professional boxing journey with a bang having bagged the WBO Oriental Youth and IBF Youth Superflyweight titles and the NABF title which he won the USA. Bornea has continually climbed the ranks and has kept his focus in becoming a legit world champion. He acknowledges the brilliant management of Sanman in handling his career. “ I have always been well guided and disciplined by my team. I do my part by working hard in the gym. As my coaches keep on telling me, fights are won in training camps. I am always itchy to fight. This pandemic fight is a big break for me”, Bornea stated."
Last night in Washington fight fans had the chance to see rising Filipino hopeful Jade Bornea (15-0, 10) score his most notable win to date, taking a split decision over Ernesto Delgadillo (11-0-2, 2). Not only did Bornea take the win but also the NABF Super Flyweight title.
The talented Bornea seemed to struggle to land cleanly early on when fighting out of the orthodox stance, but switched to southpaw after the first few rounds and started to have more success.
In round 6 the Filipino was ruled down from what appeared to be more of a push than a clean shot, securing Delgadillo a 10-8 round. That seemed a harsh call against the Filipino but one that ultimately didn't make a different with Bornea taking enough rounds overall to secure the decision.
The scorecards were 96-93 Bornea, 96-93 Delgadillo and 96-93 Bornea, giving him the split decision and the win.
Despite the win the 24 year old Filipino, who holds notable amateur wins over Kosei Tanaka and Murodjon Akhmadaliev, didn't really impress, didn't really impress in the way many had anticipated. He seemed to do enough for the win, but didn't look like a new Pinoy prodigy as many had hoped. This was, however, his US debut and the hope is he will look better next time out.
Last week the WBSS finally announced the date of the Bantamweight final, between Naoya Inoue (18-0, 16) [井上 尚弥] and Nonito Donaire (40-5, 26), which will take place on November 7th at Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
Today we saw various small stories emerge in regards to the bout, including the fact that their will some tickets made available through the Ohashi Gym lottery system and the arena is not expected to hold it's maximum capacity, instead being configured for around 22,500 seats.
What was more interesting than the ticket lottery was what Inoue was doing in to prepare for the bout, sparring with two solid Filipino fighters as he looked to amp up his preparations for the November bout.
The Filipino fighters in question were the unbeaten Jade Borena (14-0, 10) and the under-rated Jhon Gemino (20-12-1, 10), who will both bring different things to the ring to test Inoue.
In front of the press today Inoue took part in a 4 round spar with Bornea , showing fantastic crispness to his shots, notably his left hand to the body and left hook.
Gemino and Bornea, who holds a a very notable amateur win over Kosei Tanaka, are scheduled to be in camp with Inoue for around 2 weeks, likely sparring with other Ohashi gym fighters whilst in Japan, before an American is due to join Inoue as he looks to see more styles and more partners in the ring.
