Z "The Dream" Gorres of the Philippines scored what may well be a defining victory in his young ring career when he hammered former World Boxing Federation champion Sairung Suwanasil over ten rounds to win a lopsided decision before a large crowd at the Manduae Sports and Cultural Center late Saturday.
The win earned Gorres a ticket to Los Angeles where he will train under American ace Freddie Roach at the famed Wild Card Gym. Gorres' manager, WBC founding secretary general Rudy Salud had promised to send the flashy southpaw to hone his skills under Roach and to have one or two fights in the US provided he won and in the process showed he had the talent to become a future world champion. Despite hurting his right hand in the second round after he caught Suwanasil on the head with a hard right, Gorres was in complete control of the fight and didn't appear to be bothered by the showboating tactics of the Thai slugger who was extremely durable and caught Gorres with a couple of solid punches of his own.
