Boxing isn’t the only event where Filipinos are kicking serious amounts of ass.

View the match and more, with commentary from Capcom community manager Seth Killian and BLG Juicebox.
As an added bonus, here’s Filipino Champ’s previous victory over Daigo at Â the SSF IV finals of SoCal Regionals, which undoubtedly drew a lot of controversy. Well, he pretty much proved he can go toe-to-toe with Daigo Umehara. To Daigo’s credit, he didn’t go down easily and made Filipino Champ work hard for his victories.
