    After taking a two-year hiatus from regular TV work, actor-director Cesar Montano is all set to stage his big television comeback and prove his mettle as a host via ABS-CBN's newest sports-reality show, Pinoy Mano Mano: The Celebrity Boxing Challenge. This is his first project in his home studio after an unsuccessful bid to become a senator during the last elections.

    "Pinoy Mano Mano is my first reality show and I am very excited to host a boxing show," says Cesar. "If I were not an actor, I'd probably be a boxer."

    Unknown to some, this TV and movie personality has been boxing since the late '80s. In fact, Cesar even won some amateur boxing tournaments in the country.

    This local version of the hit U.S. show The Contender will feature TJ Trinidad, Joem Bascon, Rico Barrera, Rico Robles, Jordan Herrera, Biboy Ramirez, and Michael Roy Jornales. After their intensive training, one of the contenders will be named the grand champion and receive P500,000 cash, a car, and house and lot.

    Pinoy Mano Mano: The Celebrity Boxing Challenge, a boxing-reality show that pits celebrities together, aims to test their character as a fighter, as a man. At the end of the season, host Cesar Montano will be pitted against another celebrity boxer for a special match.

    Cesar and his co-host Bayani Agbayani will join the celebrity fighters as they undergo professional training sessions from some of the best boxing professionals in the country.

    Pinoy Mano Mano: The Celebrity Boxing Challenge will premiere on October 27 on ABS-CBN.


    Bringing new concepts and excitement to Philippine television, ABS-CBN proudly presents a show that will cater to the needs of sports enthusiasts and reality show addicts alike, Pinoy Mano Mano: The Celebrity Boxing Challenge.

    Pinoy Mano Mano: The Celebrity Boxing Challenge, a boxing-reality show that pits TV and movie personalities together, aims to test their character as a fighter, as a man. Meet the following celebrity boxers who will compete and experience unscripted action, with no scripts, and no doubles to do stunts for them.

    In better shape after taking a break from showbiz is celebrity fighter Biboy Ramirez. Unknown to many, this 26-year old actor possesses an adventurous streak: he idolizes Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight Chuck Lidell and would like to engage in “Ground and pound” boxing.

    His claim to fame was a deodorant commercial where his group, the now defunct “Powerboys” emerged. Now Jordan Herrera is back to the boob tube, but this time demonstrating his power through the quick and strong punches delivered by his left hand.

    Radio-jock turned Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Celebrity housemate Rico Robles has the gift of gab. Most of the time, his wit is misinterpreted as overconfidence. “I’m afraid I’ll be hurting my hand, because I’ll be hurting them so much. I’m afraid they will injure their legs for going after me. I’m afraid they will injure their hand, because my defense is insane.” claims Rico. Easier said than done, but will this long-time amateur boxer prove that his performance is as good as the way he talks?

    Another PBB housemate turned TV personality is Rico Barrera. After his stint inside the house, his good looks and muscular built landed him some projects on television, but Rico insists that he joined Pinoy Mano Mano to show everyone that he can also excel in sports, and to fulfill his dream to go up in a boxing ring.

    He is tagged as Piolo Pascual’s look-alike, but 19-year old Joem Bascon wants to establish his own identity in the industry. Considered an upcoming heartthrob, fans felt that it was too risky for Joem to put his pretty face on the line. But the youngest of the celebrity fighters feel that it’s time to reveal to the viewers his competitive side.

    Former child-star Michael Roy Jornales claims that he was already a fighter even before he entered show business. Taking a break from the industry to focus on Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and represent the country in some competitions abroad, Michael Roy believes that his experience gives him the upper hand in this boxing show. Will joining Pinoy Mano Mano revive his acting career, or will he decide to stay out of the limelight for good?

    Finally, despite his hectic schedule in taping for his teleserye, dramatic actor TJ Trinidad is determined to see the end of the season and become the season’s champion. Uknown to some, this model turned actor has been training for MMA since he was 14. His participation as a fighter in this show will introduce another side of him to his fans.

    The boxers still do not know who they will be facing on the ring, but all of them has started preparing for their matches, training rigorously at the Red Corner Gym, under the supervision of Coach Ruel Velasco, of the Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines.

    Aside from the main event in each episode, another exciting match to watch out for is the match between two female celebrity boxers that will be featured in the undercard.

    Pinoy Mano Mano: The Celebrity Boxing Challenge will be hosted by actors turned boxing enthusiasts Cesar Montano and Bayani Agbayani.

    Actors and TV personalities will experience true blood, sweat and tears inside the ring in Pinoy Mano Mano: The Celebrity Boxing Challenge, starting on October 27, Saturdays on ABS-CBN.
