Robert “Inggo” Paradero who hails from Barangay San Jose, Malaybalay City is the current title holder of World Boxing Organization (WBO) – Asia Pacific Youth Champion under the minimum flyweight class.
The 21-year old pride of Malaybalay defeated Ronnie “Warrior” Tanallon of General Santos City, trained under Senator Manny Pacquiao’s stable.
Paradero dominated Tanallon and won the 10-round boxing with a unanimous decision held at Bulua, Cagayan de Oro City on October 28, 2016.
His early passion for boxing at the age of nine at Sajulga’s stable, Aglayan eventually earned him as one of the finest boxers in the City.
A two-time Silver medalist of Palarong Pambansa back in 2009 and 2014, now holds an impressive professional boxing record of 13 wins and no losses.
Our “Super Inggo” demolished his eight opponents by way of knock-out.
He will fly to Japan early next year to defend his belt.
City Mayor Ignacio W. Zubiri awarded Paradero a cash incentive for his great achievement during the Convocation Program of the City Government of Malaybalay on November 14, 2016.
