PostSubject: Gerry Penalosa ends career with a knockout   Sun Oct 10, 2010 2:15 pm

At the Zamboanga City Coliseum in Zamboanga City, Philippines, former two division world champion Gerry Peñalosa (55-8-2, 37KOs) stopped Yodsaenkeng Kietmangmee of Thailand (12-3) in four rounds of action. The fight was a farewell bout for Penalosa. He ends his 21-year boxing career on a winning note. Much of the proceeds from the event will go to injured Filipino boxer Z Gorres. Penalosa had lost his last two bouts as he entered the ring for this contest. He lost a controversial split decision in February to Eric Morel and in April 2009 he was stopped for the first time by current WBO featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez.

Sadly, still no mention on the ESPN site, way to honor a great career. El Gordo needs to put down the Twinkies (or at least sneak some in to Scotland for Ali)

Freddie threw in the towel Lopez never stopped him. Gerry took hellacious shots and never went down or wobbled, his chin is made out of alien steel.

Nice that they helped raise some money for Gorres. I was at that fight....scary when they get hurt like that.
