It was the first professional boxing title for the Panabo City, Davao del Norte native, a boxing Olympian before entering the pros in July last year.Barriga imposed his presence early on Friday night with numerous combinations, including a stinging right straight that wobbled the much-experienced Basapaen in the middle of the match.He continued pounding on Basapaen with quick attacks in the following rounds. His performance was enough to convince the three judges to award the lopsided decision to the Filipino fighter.“Gusto ko pong ipakita sa mga boxing fans na kahit maliit ako, may sarili akong istilo,” Barriga said. “Kahit na mahirap iyong kalaban, naka-adjust ako agad at nagawan ko ng paraan para hindi ako mag-struggle.”With the victory, the 24-year-old Barriga improved to a 7-0-0 win-loss-draw record, including one stoppage win, while the 32-year-old Basapaen’s slate dropped to 33-7-0, with 12 knockout victories.In the supporting bout, fellow Filipino Ronnie Baldonado retained his WBO interim Oriental flyweight championship after knocking out the Indonesian Iwan Zoda.Baldonado, 21, also kept his record unblemished 10-0-1 while tallying his third straight stoppage victory. The 20-year-old Zoda’s record slipped 14-3-1./PN[/av_textblock][/av_one_full]

The Shoremen came to play today and dominated the possession from the beginning of the game to the end. The Shoremen created many chances on goal and in the 36th minute Sophomore Drew Del Giuduice received the ball with his back to the goal, flicked it with the outside of his right foot and nutmegged the defender. He rolled off the defender, took a touch and smashed a hard right-footed shot on goal. The goal keeper made a great save on the shot but couldn’t handle it and Junior Edison Lemanowicz finished it on goal, his 7th goal of the season. The Shoremen were up 1-0 at half.The second half was much like the first in terms of Shoremen domination. The offense was controlled by Senior Jack Lawniczak, moving the ball forward to create chances on goal and taking multiple shots himself, just missing with shots off the crossbar.The second goal came in the 76th minute when Senior Carter Chippi cleared a long ball into the box that was received by Senior Charlie Youngvirt on the outside. Youngvirt cut to the middle and slotted the ball past the keeper on the near post. This was Youngvirt’s 5th goal of the season. In all, the Shoremen had 30 shots on goal to Normandy’s 5. A strong defensive effort from the back line of Seniors Carter Chippi, Austin Baraona and Aidan Flinn, Juniors Joey Caputo and Andrew Jacobson, and Sophomore Derek Stepak kept Normandy off the board. Baraona was the anchor of the defense in this win against Normandy. Sophomore keeper Stephen Jones earned the Shoremen’s 4th shutout of the season.The Shoremen JV team were victorious as well, defeating Normandy 10-0. Two Freshmen players, Logan Allemeier and Zach Ramsey, each had hat tricks in the game to lead the team to victory.Next up for the Shoremen are the SWC Conference leaders Olmsted Falls Bulldogs on Wednesday at Avon Lake Memorial Field at 7pm.Story supplied to NEOSI by the Avon Lake VNN network and Pete Klepek.
Boks said his agency issued permits for the elephant to appear, but he tried to have them revoked late Friday on grounds of public safety. However, the revocation would need five days and the exhibit would be over by then, he said. “Permits will not be issued for such frivolous abuse of animals in the future,” he said. Tai’s owner denied that the 38-year-old Indian elephant, who lives on a Perris ranch, had been abused. “Tai has done many, many movies. She’s used to makeup,” said Kari Johnson, who with her husband co-owns the company “Have Trunk, Will Travel.” Bill Dyer, a regional director of the group In Defense of Animals, went to see the animal at the exhibit Friday afternoon. “It didn’t seem the elephant was under stress,” Dyer said. “There were carrots and things, but it’s another example of our exploitation of animals – so gimmicky and unnecessary.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The elephant, named Tai, was given a floral, nontoxic paint job for the Thursday opening of the “Barely Legal” exhibit by British artist Banksy at a warehouse near downtown. The exhibit is to run through today, with the elephant on hand. Cards handed out at the opening, which included guests such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, read: “There’s an elephant in the room. There’s a problem we never talk about. The fact is that life isn’t getting any fairer. … Twenty-billion people live below the poverty line.” “I think it sends a very wrong message that abusing animals is not only OK, it’s an art form,” said Ed Boks, head of the city’s Animal Services Department. “We find it no longer acceptable to dye baby chicks at Easter, but it’s OK to dye an elephant.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe joys and headaches of holiday travel: John Phillips
