VIVA – Daud Jordan, one of Indonesia’s proud boxers whose name has adorned the national and even world boxing rings. A number of achievements were obtained by the boxer who is familiarly called Cino, but behind it all Jordan had to pay for it with blood and tears.
Daud Yordan was born in Simpang Dua Village, West Kalimantan on June 10, 1987. Living with a farming family, the boxer with the nickname Cino tries to knit his dream of becoming a world-class boxing athlete. He thought that boxing would be a way out to elevate his mediocre family.
The opportunity came when he received an invitation from Pertina Pusat in Jakarta in 2001. At that time, Daud had just graduated from elementary school. Since junior, Daud has won many titles at the national level. Until finally representing Indonesia in the 2004 Olympic Qualifiers, while still in high school. Too bad he failed.
But the failure did not make him discouraged, the presence of Indonesian promoters made his name even more soar. He was brought to the international level by the Crown Promotion led by King Sapta Oktohari.
His career accelerated after fighting in Las Vegas, United States. At that time his opponent Antonio Meza was defeated by points. He became the first Indonesian boxer to win in the United States. After that he won a number of prestigious titles, he holds three titles namely WBO Intercontinental lightweight, IBA super lightweight and WBO Oriental.
And there was one match that caught quite the attention, namely when Cino fought a boxer king KO from the Philippines, the country of origin of the legendary boxer Manny Pacquiao. His name is Lorenzo Villanueva.
