Default Ranee Ganoy: No Longer Just A KO Kid

Ranee Ganoy: No Longer Just A KO Kid

Australian based, Filipino born power punching Lightweight Ranee Ganoy (24 Wins, 10 Losses & 2 Draws, With 20 Wins By Knockout) was born & raised in the South Cotabato region of the Philipines in the early 1980's. His career is now beginning to flourish, however it never was that way for most of the KO Kid's career.

Ranee Ganoy began his professional boxing career when he was 20 in the Philipines, which isn't quite too young compared to some of the young boys coming out of their gyms today. Ranee began his career promisingly with 9 wins & a couple draws against the sort of opposition most boxers would hope to get when beginning out on a professional boxing career.

However, Ganoy was boxing in the Philipines without proper management & guidance which led to him taking fights on short notice (sometimes these being only a days prior to a fight). This was a great way for Ganoy to earn some quick money in the poverty stricken country. Ganoy fought opponents on short notice including a young Bobby Pacquiao, who is currently a highly ranked Super Featherweight & brother of Filpino ring idol Manny Pacquaio. Ganoy would also take fights outside the Philipines on short notice in countries such as Japan & Thailand. These foes he was facing however were often vastly more experienced, & its notoriously very difficult to gain any sort of decision victory against the home based fighters, especially in Thailand. Ganoy was fighting a losing battle at this stage in his career, & he knew it.

Ganoy was strung a lifeline however in late 2004 by the Bohol brothers - Hermie, Jeffrey & Dido Bohol. They were Filipino born trainers, that had found a new home in Australia & were looking to recruit Filipino talent that had been misguided throughout their careers. This gave Ganoy a second chance in his boxing life & get away from the poverty & misdirection of his boxing career in the Philipines. He began his Australian based career in style, winning by a 1st round knockout against a foe he was supposed to lose against. This was not however the best thing that could have happened to Ganoy at the time.

The "KO Kid" was then thrown to the wolves in bouts with top rated Australian & undefeated Lightweight Ben Cruz, then Ganoy was thrust up a weight class to face future world title challenger Naoufel Ben Rabah, in a bout upon reflection today he probably should have never even considered an option. Ben Rabah had quite a reputation however, so he was struggling to find decent opponents. So Ganoy stepped up as always out of his natural weight class, never protecting his record.

Following the Ben Rabah fight, Ganoy's career began to really take off. He caused big upsets against well credentialed Aussies Mick Shaw & Allan Luxford. This led Ganoy to a showdown with now current WBO Interim Lightweight Champ, Australia's Michael Katsidis. The Katsidis bout, was an all-out war as all Ganoy fights are. Ganoy was knocked down with a hard shot in round 2, but he showed his heart & courage to power on. Katsidis won the bout with a slightly premature 5th round stoppage. However it was evident that Michael Katsidis & Ranee Ganoy were destined for much bigger honours & maybe one day will meet again in a dream world title bout for all Australian boxing fans.

Ganoy had to restart again from yet another setback in his career, but he was far from done yet. He was taking boxing contests as high as the Welterweight division knocking out Australian champions & regional contenders at will. Ranee Ganoy's most memorable fight in this period came with Nigerian-born & former Commonwealth Welterweight Champ Fatai Onikeke. The contest was not televised at all in Australia, but is widely recognized as the 2006 Australian Fight Of The Year. If someone had looked up in a dictionary the words "Boxing" & "War", this matchup is what they would find. Onikeke was hurt numerous times in the bout, but kept on hanging on & dishing punishment back onto Ganoy. Ganoy for the record won the brutal contest with a 7th round stoppage.

The Onikeke contest sent Ganoy into a career defining matchup in early 2007 with former IBF Super Featherweight world champ, Aussie Robbie Peden. All those early bouts in his career that Ganoy had taken in higher weight classes, gave him excellent experience for this career defining fight. In a tight contest early on, Ganoy gained control knocking Peden down in round 7 & it was finally stopped in the following round when Peden couldn't take any more punishment.

This win propelled Ganoy into the top 15 Lightweight rankings with the IBF, as it was a sanctioned IBF Pan-Pacific Regional Title fight. The match opened great doors for Ganoy as far as management was concerned. The Peden fight was promoted by Ace Boxing Promotions in Queensland, headed by Angelo Di Carlo. Di Carlo became Ganoy's manager after the bout & for the 1st time Ganoy had his management side of his career in control. No more short notice fights. No more unnecessary risks. Since then Ganoy has avenged a past defeat & is now in preparation for his biggest boxing contest in his career.

Ganoy has been receiving training assistance with Aussie legend Jeff Fenech this year, as he prepares for his April 18 IBF World Title Eliminator showdown with former 2 time IBF Lightweight Champ, Mexican Julio Diaz. The fight is taking place in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates & will also feature Aussie Flyweight Hussein Hussein getting 1 last World Title opportunity. Should Ganoy come through this, a world title bout beckons with the likes of a Juan Diaz or even maybe a rematch with nemises Michael Katsidis. I guess in due time all will be revealed for the "KO Kid".

Great work Kegsy.

Angelo Di Carlo has really been a big influence on progressing Ranee's career. Without his promotions and matchmaking, Ganoy would not be in a position to challenge the top guys in th edivision.

Just to clarify, Hermie Bohol is the sole trainer of Ranee and as yet, Fenech hasn't played a part in training him.

Yeah Ganoy is a live chance no doubt. Especially with that power.
If Julio Diaz takes him lightly at all, he will get sparked early.

Peden is old.
Paulley has a weak chin and cuts up easily.
Luxford had it coming,no defense.
Kat and Rabbah were too good.Was a step up for RG.
JOEY RICARDO GOOD LIL FIGHTER.
ONAKEKE, BIGSHOTCAMP and NakBalee no need to explain.
And now Julio Diaz a former World Champion.
A Mexican warrior has been with the best.Known to be skilled,a tough hombre. MEXICAN'S ARE THE BEST IN THIS SPORT AT THESE WEIGHTS. I DONT KNOW man....BTW I saw RG jogging he looked in good shape. We'll see what happens.I favor Julio TKO though.I don't know fellas does Ganoy have what it takes?
