Another setback for the Bacolod City’s Top Prime Stable last Saturday after another prospect, Juan "Punisher" Purisima (11, 4KOs-4-1) failed to win the WBA International Flyweight belt against hometown hero Artem Dalakian (8, 5KOs-0) in Donbass Arena, Donetsk, Ukraine.
Like his compatriot, Jerry "Dangerous" Nardo (17, 8KOs-3-0), Purisima also dropped another fight in his career via unanimous decision after judges scored the fight 120-105, 120-106 and 119-106.
The 22-year old Purisima alongside Top Prime Stable’s Rhay-Rhay Guanzon is expected to return to the Philippines today.
Despite the loss of his mother last Sunday, eventual "Most Valuable Player" Jayson Panhay played one of his best games last August 21, 2013 when he anchored Dynamic Builders FC successfully defended their title against arch-rival Ceres Transport FC in the 2nd Conference of the North Football League played at the Panaad Park and Stadium in Brgy. Mansilingan.
As expected, both clubs stamped their class with remarkable performance forcing a scoreless halftime.

SEAOIL Philippines Inc. has strengthened its commitment to environmental protection through the expansion of the Adopt-a-Mangrove project, a multi-party agreement to plant and protect a two-hectare mangrove forest in Brgy. Punta Taytay. Apart from SEAO1L, five other parties, including the government of Barangay Punta Taytay, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), SEAOIL Foundation Inc., and University of St. La Salle (USLS)-College of Engineering, today signed an expanded memorandum of agreement that aims to accelerate the development of the mangrove plantation.
The original agreement for the Adopt-a-Mangrove project was signed in 2005 by four parties: Barangay Punta Taytay. DENR, SEAOIL and USLS. A brainchild of the USLS-College of Engineering, the project was put in place to replace the college’s Adopt-a-Mountain program. USLS sought the DENR’s help in identifying and providing a coastal area for mangrove planting. A two-hectare area in Barangay Punta Taytay was then identified. To help bankroll the project, USLS tapped SEAOIL as its private sector partner.
The proponents agreed to beef up the agreement this year by making each party’s responsibilities clearer and more specific, and by allowing new partners to come on board.
Bacolod-based employees of SEAOIL Philippines Inc. will be spending their Saturday giving back to Mother Nature, via a mangrove planting activity in Barangay Punta Taytay.
The activity is part of the Adopt-a-Mangrove project, a multi-party project that aims to develop a two-hectare mangrove forest along the coastline of Barangay Punta Taytay, to which SEAOIL is a part. The planting activity will add 500 new seedlings to the growing mangrove forest in the area.
Apart from SEAOIL, proponents of the Adopt-a-Mangrove project include the government of Barangay Punta Taytay, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), SEAOIL Foundation Inc., and University of St. La Salle (USLS)-College of Engineering.
