PCAP: Negros KOs Iloilo in semis, faces Davao in division finals

MANILA, Philippines — The Negros Kingsmen are close to the throne.After two years and six conferences, the Negros Kingsmen have finally gotten the monkey — the Iloilo Kisela Knights — off their backs in semifinals chess of PCAP’s Open Conference Saturday.Negros shocked Iloilo by taking blitz play of the first set, 5.5-1.5. In rapid chess, GM Joey Antonio, WFM Cherry Ann Meija, and NM Cesar Mariano scored huge points, but that was it. Their homegrown boards, long a source of strength for them, were shut down by the Kingsmen’s NM Joel Pimentel, NM Edsel Montoya, and Ellan Asuela for the crucial six points and an 8-6 win for a 13.5-7.5 win in the first set.During the second set and with a sense of urgency, if not desperation, Iloilo notched blitz play at 3.5-all. Come rapid chess, FM David Elorta, the huge difference in Negros’ ascent these last two conferences, took the two points from Antonio. Meija and Mariano still got their points but the homegrown boards were once more the difference. Only the Kisela Knights’ FM Fritz Bryan Porras scored some points as Negros took rapid chess 9-5 for an overall 12.5-8.5 win in the second set. And that sent Iloilo tumbling out of the southern division finals for the first time in their history as they made the division finals five consecutive times and the grand finals three straight. Negros will now take on the Davao Chess Eagles who beat back a spirited challenge from the Toledo Trojans — 11.5-9.5 and 2-1 in Armageddon in the second set. WNM Rowelyn Joy Acedo, NM Alex Lupian, and NM Jonathan Tan carried the Chess Eagles in the first set. In the second set, Acedo, Lupian, and FM Sander Severino provided big points in both blitz and rapid chess for the win.Like Negros, Toledo has been knocking on the door of chess greatness — perhaps, one player away from taking on Davao or Iloilo.But now, it will be Davao versus Negros for the southern division title and the right to go to the grand finals of the Open Conference. The division finals is slated for Wednesday, December 7.

Brandon Vera moves from ONE circle to big screen after retirement

MANILA, Philippines — Former ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon Vera will be trading the ring for movie sets as he announced his retirement after two decades in the sport at ONE 164 at the Mall of Asia Arena on Saturday night.Vera, 45, suffered a loss against Iran's Amir Aliakbari via TKO in the opening round of their contest in the main card of ONE Championship's return to Manila.Having been in the MMA industry since 2002, Vera said it is time to change careers."Pasensya ha. Kababayan, dito at sa buong mundo, ang tagal ko nang ginagawa ito, mga 20 plus years na. Eto ngayon, you just witnessed 'The Truth''s very last fight in MMA." an emotional Vera said after the fight."I wish I could've went out with the win, I broke my damn hand again, p********. Mahal ko kayong lahat. Salamat sa inyong pagmamahal sa akin. I love you all, thank you for everything that you've given me MMA, ONE Championship." he added.A standing ovation greeted Vera in his last exit from the ONE Circle, as he left his gloves inside — a gesture signaling the end of his MMA journey.The Fil-Am MMA icon was the Singapore promotion's first-ever heavyweight champion and reigned supreme until 2021 when he was dethroned by India's Arjan Bhullar.Vera was among the five Filipino world champions who simultaneously held their belts at the end of 2018, which marked a golden age for the country in ONE Championship.Though he won't be seeing action in the ONE Circle anymore, Vera promised his fans they would see him again — this time on a movie screen."To all my fans around the world, even though I'm not in here, you'll see me on the big screen. We just signed a 10-movie deal here in the Philippines." said Vera."Panoorin niyo yung pelikula ko." he quipped.Vera finished his MMA career with a 16-10, 1 NC record.
