Last week we featured Latigo Rapper's track about Rey "Boo Boom" Bautista and we mentioned he did two tracks about Filipino boxers. This is the other one, and is imaginatively named "AJ Bazooka Banal Rap", and is about AJ Banal.
Again not the most amazing of musical tracks, but it does make us wonder why we don't see more upcoming fighters, from the Philippines, which Banal was at the time, linking with musicians to have songs about them in an effort to raise their profile and give them a unique track to enter with. It seems a fun idea and something that more fighters perhaps should consider.
At one point in time it seemed like the ALA Gym was sat on a wealth of emerging talent and that the Philippines was going to have a generation of brilliant fighters. One of those fighters was Rey "Boom Boom" Bautista. He was a good looking kid, with power, an exciting style and a lot of promise and potential.
He was one of two fighters from the ALA stable to get a rap recorded for him by Latigo Rapper. The song is nothing amazing, but it is, in some ways, a sign of just how popular Bautista was at this point in his career. Sadly Bautista failed to reach the heights expected of him in the sport, but he is one of the few fighters to have a special rap recorded about him.
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
