By on January 20, 2020

first_img“I’m just a back-up point guard to Mike before. Now, I’m starting to get my rhythm because I should be more of a court general. I need to be more offensive-minded, but I have to be decisive,” he said in Filipino.His time with Kaohsiung Truth in the ASEAN Basketball League did help him a lot in preparing himself to these bigger roles.

In our college days, you just run up the court and play. But there, you have to be deliberate because you have to be smart there,” said Iñigo.Iñigo struggled to get his shots going in his first game with the Seafarers, shooting 3-of-8 from the field to finish with 10 points. LATEST STORIES He did better in setting up his teammates, as he racked up six assists and hauled down two rebounds in his 30 minutes on the floor.Unfortunately, his efforts weren’t enough as Marinerong Pilipino bowed in its conference-opener to Batangas, 92-82 on Tuesday.But Iñigo is confident his team can bounce back especially after what he thought were first game jitters.“It was our first game and we still haven’t known each other that well. We haven’t jelled the same way Batangas did because we’re just together for just two months, so it’s a given that we’ll have those lapses,” he said. “We still have a long way. It’s just our first game. We’ll figure things out soon.”ADVERTISEMENT For Ina, portraying a zombie is like an ‘out-of-body experience’ MOST READ Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite Ex-Bulacan town vice mayor, village chief shot dead Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Missile-capable frigate BRP Jose Rizal inches closer to entering PH Navy’s fleet “We must be mistake-free tomorrow (Sunday),” said Rushton.Having thoroughly analyzed Pacquiao’s previous fights, Rushton is taking a cue from what Pacquiao did to Ricky Hatton in 2009, when he flattened the Briton in just two rounds.Rushton said Hatton made a mistake and paid the price.Claiming that Horn is competent and technically proficient to adapt to whatever Pacquiao will bring to the ring, Rushton promised a “Bloody Sunday.”Though they’ve stated that Pacquiao’s chin will be a prime target, owing to what Juan Manuel Marquez did to him in 2013, Rushton insists Hop has a large target area.ADVERTISEMENT To proceed with caution is what trainer Glenn Rushton wants Horn to do in the headliner of “Battle of Brisbane.”Rushton, who has charted an extensive 10-point plan to improve their chances of dethroning Pacquiao, said Horn should stick to it once the bell rings and when it ends.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

(Photo by JOHN PYE / AP)BRISBANE, Australia—There will be no rush for Jeff Horn in the first round. Instead, he’ll measure Manny Pacquiao’s distance before testing his speed and power.Afterwards, Horn will try to break down Pacquiao’s body before going for the kill on the later rounds.ADVERTISEMENT LaVine scores 42, Chicago rallies late to beat Cavs Thousands join Kalibo Ati-atihan despite typhoon devastation “We’re prepared to hit him in the head, body, and wherever,” said Rushton.Not only that, the mixed martial arts expert and self-made millionaire swears Horn has everything in hisarsenal.“He can hit from long range, middle range and short range,” said Rushton.Horn’s unpredictability will also be a key factor in his bid to stun Pacquiao, and probably send him into retirement, according to Rushton.“He throws punches from everywhere. He can turn southpaw like Manny, he can hit with right hand leads and can move and fight from angles that Manny hasn’t encountered before.”In other words, Rushton believes Horn’s so good, Pacquiao will look bad on Sunday.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite End of his agony?
