TV5 Brings The Crown and Gloves Together with BEKI BOXER

TV5 has showcased interesting new shows lately and it still on a roll with innovative new plots for Philippine television. Now it will end March with a blow as it premieres its newest primetime series Beki Boxer this March 31. 

The new series will be the biggest break for Kapatid actor Alwyn Uytingco, as he does action-packed boxing and with witty gay comedy in this show. Alwyn has done gay roles in the past and has went into training to get himself in shape for the role. There is an interesting mix of boxers and bekis  in the show which will either be entertainingly funny or 'nakakalerkey' crazy. 

It would be interesting if there will be cameos or they will feature world class pinoy boxers and/or gay athletes also which is also timely as recently there are news about boxers or other athletes who came out.

The combination of Pinoy's love for the sport of Boxing and the Gay comedy which is loved by the public shows its potential to be a hit to the viewers. The series is directed by Jade Castro who directed Zombadings Part 1: Patayin Sa Shyokot Si Remmington.


At their recently held media launch at Oasis Manila in Quezon City, TV5 gave guests a sneak-peek of Beki Boxer, which revolves around the story of Rocky Ponciano (Alwyn Uytingco), a young man who is naturally gifted with boxing prowess. When Rocky's father Max (Christian Vasquez), a former boxing champion, lost his crucial fight that eventually doomed his career and tainted his reputation for life, it has become Rocky's ultimate goal to become a world-class boxer to bring back the lost glory of his family.

However, Rocky is not your ordinary boxer. While his killer punches can knock down any opponent, he knows deep inside his heart that the king of the ring... is a queen.

Will Rocky be able to vindicate his father and his family? What will his father's reaction be when he finds out that his boxer son is a beki? And will Rocky's sexuality stop him from pursuing his dreams?

Beki Boxer proves that fighting for one's dreams and aspirations in life is possible regardless of one's social status, gender and sexual orientation.


Joining Alwyn to give life to Beki Boxer’s endearing characters are Christian Vasquez as Max, his boxing champion-father; Candy Pangilinan as Consuelo, a loving wife and mother to Rocky and Max; Cholo Barreto as Elorde, Rocky’s homophobic brother; Onyok Velasco as Ninong Onyok; his godfather/boxing coach; Joross Gamboa as Madonna, his gay friend/confidant; John Regala as the antagonist Coach Dalmacio; Claire Hartell as Venus, Kristel Moreno as Jessa, Danita Paner as Chloe and Vin Abrenica as Atong, Rocky’s co-boxer / love interest.

Beki Boxer premieres this Monday, March 31, 7PM, replacing Let's Ask Pilipinas on TV5.
