Totoy Bato is an upcoming boxing-themed Philippine drama from GMA Network based on the award-winning graphic novel of Carlo J. Caparas starring Robin Padilla in the title role, with Regine Velasquez, Eddie Garcia and boxing-champion Manny Pacquiao. The series is set to premiere on February 23, 2009.
In preparation for the role, lead star Robin Padilla, who after losing weight for Joaquin Bordado had to top his 160 pounds to achieve 200 pounds needed for Totoy Bato. He would train through playing rugby and football to gain the shape the director wants. He will also need to do boxing, jiu-jitsu, judo, karate, kickboxing and wrestling.
For the first time, Padilla teams-up with Regine Velasquez, although they have spawned two-blockbuster films (Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw and Till I Met You) in the past. Sunshine Dizon was first attached to the role, but GMA Network moved her to star in All About Eve.
Regine Velasquez, from his last telebabad show Ako Si Kim Sam Soon, She tries to lose weight to fit for TOTOY BATO, from a fat lady pastry chef to a singer. Regine's new role is not a "new role" to her true life as we all know.
