Fernando Poe, Jr. and his seconds, Oscar Keesee, Teroy de Guzman, Andres Centenera size up their opponent in Premiere Productions' "Apollo Robles" (1961)

 





Since the movie was about a struggling boxer, the production staff headed by Director Gerry de Leon opted to consult boxing champ Flash Elorde on some boxing tips and pointers and assist them in some critical boxing scenes to make the movie more realistic.Those pointers became very crucial later in many fight scenes the actor made in his movies. He integrated part of Elorde’s styles and techniques to his own styles and came up with a unique “FPJ rapid and lightning punches” we all know. They later starred and teamed up in a 1964 movie, Mano-Mano.




REMEMBERING FPJ ON HIS 10TH DEATH ANNIVERSARY

“DA KING:” Would he have led the nation into a verdant meadow with conviction, compassion and box-office success? Would he have tempered power with grace, giving more cause to idolize him? Now, it’s goodbye to all that. (Inquirer: Filipino of the Year 2004)
