OLYMPIAN Charly Suarez build up his preparation for the coming World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Featherweight title defense on three important principle  – be ready physically, mentally and the most important of all spiritually.

“Ready po tayo.  Since I was in the National team, itinuturo sa amin at tinandaan ko na laging maging handa sa laban physically and mentally. Sa karanasan ko sa boxing, idinagdag ko yung kahandaan lagi spiritually,” said the  33-year-old pride of Sawata, Davao del Norte during his visit to the Tabloids Organization in Philippine Sports, Inc. (TOPS) ‘Usapang Sports’ on Thursday at Behrouz Persian Cuisine in Quezon City.

“Importante sa ating pakikibaka sa sports at sa pamumuhay na laging kasama natin ang Panginoon. Lagi ko yan sinasabi sa mga kapwa ko boxers at sa mga kabataan na magiging maayos ang lahat basta may pananalig tayo sa Panginoon. We need to practice and train but let’s not forget to always pray,” he added.

Suarez is currently in deep training under the care of fellow former National mainstay and closed friend Delfin Boholst for his upcoming second title defense against similarly tough challenger Carlo Magali on October 23 at the Elorde Sports Center in Paranaque.

The Rio de Janeiro Olympic veteran and SEA Games multi-medalist is currently ranked No.36 in the same division of the World Boxing Council (WBC) which is currently owned by American Shakur Stevenson.

He holds a 12-0 mark, featuring seven knockouts. Despite being a ‘late bloomer’ in the pro ranks, Suarez’s campaign was soo impressive, featuring the 12th round technical knockout win over Tomjune Mangubat to claim the then vacant WBA Asia belt.

“Kami naman ni Charly (Suarez) ay matagal ng magkasama kaya kabisado na namin ang isa’t isa, basta sa training kung ano yung nakita ko na dapat pang ayusin agad namin pinag-uusapan. Sa kasalukuyan, kondisyon si Charly at magandang laban ang mapapanood ng boxing fans,”stated  Boholst.

“Malakas din si Carlo (Magal). Malaking pangalan na rin siya sa Philippines boxing kaya hindi rin kami nagpapasiguro, basta tuloy lang kami sa programa namin,” he added in the sports forum sponsored by the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC), Games and Amusements Board (GAB), Pagcor and Behrouz Persian Cuisine.

Charly Suarez retained his WBA Asia super featherweight belt with a unanimous decision win over Mark John Yap at the Elorde Sports Complex in Parañaque last  August 7.

“Halos dalawang buwan lang ang pagitan at preparasyon, pero ok lang. Handa tayo sa laban,” said Suarez

Magali holds the ring record of 25 wins (13KO). He is scheduled to fight in South Africa last Aug. 21 but his duel with Ayanda Nkosi for the World Boxing Federation (WBF) lightweight title fight was cancelled.

Suarez extends his warmest gratitude to his superior at the Philippine Army as he was  promoted from Reserve Sergeant to Staff Sergean.

Suarez is affiliated with the 1303rd Reserve Command Community Defense Center, Capital Region Regional Community Defense Group. His trainer Delfin Boholst is  Army Reservist 1st Lt.
