"Yung payo na binigay niya sa akin, hindi porke’t tuloy tuloy na panalo ka, panalo lahat, wala kang talo."
Jason Pagara had a front row seat when his brother Albert suffered his first career loss at Pinoy Pride 37 in California last July against tough Mexican contender Cesar Juarez.
Jason admitted to shedding some tears when he saw his brother lose for the first time, but he also said that after the fights, they had a bit of a heart to heart.
"Nagusap kami noon sa San Francisco pagkatapos nung laban na natalo siya," Jason told ABS-CBN Sports. "Pag may parating na laban, wag masyadong kumpiyansa sa sarili at dapat manalangin siya sa panginoon. Ganyan naman talaga ang boxing, may panalo, may talo"
Jason added that even the best in the business have fallen before.
"Kung si Pacquiao nga, natatalo din eh."
The 28-year old Jason is no stranger to defeat, as he's already been on the wrong end of a unanimous decision twice in his career.
The most important takeaway that Albert got from his brother though, is that there has to be something learned after every fight, win or lose.
"Yung payo na binigay niya sa akin, hindi porke’t tuloy tuloy na panalo ka, panalo lahat, wala kang talo." Albert shared. "Kailangan may lessons ka sa bawat laban mo."
Saturday night at Pinoy Pride 39 in Cebu, the Pagara brothers make their returns to the ring, as Jason meets former world champion Jose Alfaro of Nicaragua, and Albert takes on Ghana's Raymond Commey.
Pinoy Pride 39: Road to Redemption takes place on Saturday, November 26 at the Cebu Coliseum. Catch the telecast on Sunday, November 27, 3:30 PM on ABS-CBN channel 2 and 6:30 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23.
