Press Release: April 15, 2018 by Sanman Promotions – Looking to resurrect his career after stumbling to his first career loss, super featherweight prospect Mark Vincent Bernaldez has decided to sign up with Sanman Boxing Gym in General Santos City. Bernaldez believed that Sanman, headed by CEO Jim Claude Manangquil, will help him realize his dream of becoming a world champion.
“I chose Sanman to handle my career because I can see that they are very dedicated to boxing. They give opportunities to their boxers to become world champions. Some of my stablemates in other boxing clubs are already world champions because they were given opportunities,” said the 26-year-old Bernaldez.
The 5-foot-6 Bernaldez is a former stalwart of the ALA Boxing Gym. He started his career with 15 straight wins before absorbing a technical knockout loss to Tsuyoshi Tameda last August 5, 2018 in Japan. “I think the fight in Japan was my hardest fight in my career,” said Bernaldez, who has not seen action since that loss to Tameda.
“I didn’t have enough preparation for that fight and that’s the reason why I lost. I was so disappointed that’s why I stopped boxing for a while. But now I am back and I will prove to everyone that I have what it takes to become a world champion,” said Bernaldez, owner of 10 knockout victories.
Bernaldez said having the right discipline, hard work and dedication were the traits he learned from his stint with the ALA Gym.
“I will use the things I learned from my previous gym to realize my dreams. I am hoping that my fans will continue to support me. I will do my best to give pride to my family and Sanman,” said Bernaldez. Manangquil, for his part, said Bernaldez has the qualities to become the next big thing in boxing. “Bernaldez is great a boxer and has a big chance to become a world champion. One or two fights here in the Philippines just to shake off the rust and after that maybe a regional title fight then we will bring him to the United States,” said Mananquil. Bernaldez will be ending his long hiatus when he sees action in the undercard of the upcoming “Undefeated” fight card on April 28th in Glan, Saranggani Province.
