Orcollo hones up for Taiwanese rematch

MANILA, Philippines – Former world No.1 Dennis Orcollo is currently in deep training for his upcoming duel with archri­val Yang Ching-shun in the Face Off Series 2-One More Time set Sept. 8 at the Club Capo in Tomas Morato, Quezon City. Orcollo practices twice a day for more than 200 racks against top Filipino cue artists in challenge matches as he hopes to reach peak form in time for the race­to-50, 10-ball match produced and or­ganized by Club Capo. The match will be shown live on Solar Sports with a live streaming over the internet through www. jbet.net. It will be the first time Orcollo and Yang will face each other since the Taiwanese ace trounced the Filipino in their race-to­60 challenge match at the Gateway Mall in Quezon City in 2007.
“I’m happy that Yang accepted my challenge for a rematch as I really want to avenge my loss against him the last time,” said Orcollo. “I will do my best to win this time and I’m confident that it’s me who will emerge the winner,” added the reigning Interna­tional 10-Ball champion.
Orcollo and Yang will dispute the $10,000 top purse. The Orcollo -Yang rematch is just the start of a series of challenge matches Club Capo is putting up. (PhilStar.com)
