Daniel "Mumbaki" Foronda

As we stated in The List, Foronda is an Igorot who excels in freestyle fighting. Know more about him in this video. By the way, the last third of the video is kinda “R-rated”. Fortunately, it is not visual so its okay to just cover the ears of the kids.

I don’t believe in amulets but faith is a very personal thing. If it works for Foronda , then I say good for him. Who am I to judge? After all, he is the champ and not me 🙂

The List, Part 3: Rey Tam

Who is Rey Tam? To answer that question, let us devote a whole blog entry of The List in his honor. Rey Tam is an Igorot boxer who was once ranked No. 1 in the superfeatherweight division by the World Boxing Council (WBC). I never heard of him until I came across his name in the website His story is fascinating and the article about him by Quinito Henson is beautifully written. In true internet style, I copied the article and pasted it here for all of us. I hope that his story will inspire other Igorots to take up boxing and, in honor of Rey Tam, win a world title.
