He announced his entry with a huge block, but was subbed out soon after and did not return.

Still, Paras was appreciative of how the Filipinos' responded to him.

"I'm just blessed to have people who support me like that," said Paras. "Sa Jones Cup pa lang, ganyan na, so I expected it."

"It's not as big as the Jones Cup, kaunti lang ang mga tao dito," he added of the venue. "But the support of the Filipinos is amazing. As you saw earlier, packed 'yung gym."
