PeĆ±alosa enjoys P159K prize from Wheel of Fortune
Gerry PeĆ±alosaās luck continues to pour in even after his successful defense of his WBO bantamweight belt two weeks ago as he won P159,000 during Mondayās episode of popular game show Wheel of Fortune.
"I really enjoyed Wheel of Fortune with Kris (Aquino). I hope to join the show again," said a beaming PeĆ±alosa.
Joining PeĆ±alosa during the showās Monday episode were Rey "Boom Boom" Bautista and AJ "Bazooka" Banal.
PeĆ±alosa is now also a proud owner of a newly opened gym at the Marketmall in Mandaluyong City.
The Gerry PeĆ±alosa Boxing Gym opened its doors to fight enthusiasts. The WBO champion said he plans to train future champions.
The gym is furnished with photos of PeĆ±alosaās memorable triumphs on the ring.
PeĆ±alosa, who dropped plans of joining the Mosley-Judah undercard fight on May 31, said he will enjoy his recent shower of blessings first while waiting for his next bout.
