Rocky Fuentes KOs foe in Indonesia
By Dong Secuya

Cebu's Rocky Fuentes won his fight in Indonesia last July 26. According to a report posted at BoxRec.com, Fuentes knocked out his Indonesian rival Dolfi Lolaru in the 5th round of their scheduled 10 round light flyweight encounter. Fuentes was campaigning in Indonesia since last May racking up two knockout wins against one loss in three fights. Fuentes now improved his record to 11 wins, 3 loses and 2 draws with 8 knockouts.
Rocky Fuentes was one of ALA Boy's brightest hopes when he racked up 8 successive wins in as many starts compiling 6 knockout wins along the way. He also made headlines when his 4th victim, John Eman Juarez, was carried out from the ring unconscious after being knocked out and died in the hospital 3 days later.
But back to back loses against Thai opponents the last of which was for the vacant WBO Asia Pacific light flyweight title against Kaichon Sor Vorapin on August 27 of last year, derailed Rocky's rise to stardom. A couple of draws later and a knockout loss in his first fight in Indonesia had effectively put Fuentes away from the radar of boxing scribes.
However, his back to back knockout wins in his last two fights may again put Fuentes back to the limelight.
