Gilas Pilipinas 'Un-Invited' To Jones Cup 2013

Gilas Pilipinas, the Philippine national basketball team, will not be able to defend its Jones Cup title as it has been "un-invited" to this year's tournament, coach Chot Reyes said.

"Just got word from d organizers that we have been un-invited to d Jones Cup. Di matapos-tapos ang problema ng Gilas ha," Reyes tweeted Monday.

When asked for the reason why Gilas was removed from the list, Reyes said it is because of the on-going tension between host country Taiwan and the Philippines stemming from the killing of a Taiwanese fisherman three weeks ago.

Reyes added that his team is now looking for a replacement tourney as part of their preparation for the FIBA Asia Cup in August.

Since Jones Cup's inception in 1977, the Philippines has won four times and is ranked second in the tournament's all-time list, next only to the United States, which has won fourteen titles.

Denver Cuello knocks out Thai opponent in 9th Round

WBC International minimumweight titlist Filipino boxer Denver "The Excitement" Cuello stunned Thai contender Samat Chaiyong with a 9th-round technical knockout and thus winning the fight held at the Ynares Gym in Angono, Rizal on March 26.

Samat used the entire ring to circle out of harm’s way but Cuello caught up with him in the fourth, landing a series of powerful lefts to the Thai’s head.

The Thai tried everything to stop Cuello’s attack in the fifth to eighth rounds but got trapped in a corner in the ninth and absorbed a hail of punches, forcing referee Bruce McTavish to stop the fight.

Denver Cuello, 24, suffered a loss by disqualification in his fight against Juan Hernandez last year.

Undefeated superbantamweight Ernie Sanchez beat Jog Alim via an eighth round TKO in the main supporting bout.

Alim hit the deck in the opening round but slowly worked his way back into the fight, only to fall anew in the eighth after a series of shots by Sanchez.
