Filipino Raymond Tabugon (14-3-1, 6 KO's) scored the most important win of his boxing career by dethroning South African Luzuko Siyo (13-3, 10 KO's) to capture on points the IBO Intercontinental Jr. Flyweight (108 lbs) championship Friday night in East London, South Africa.
"It was Tabugon's first fight outside of the Philippines and he did great. Ray was motivated and in excellent shape. His win is a reward for his hard work," shared Tabugon's manager Jim Claude Manangquil of Sanman Promotions in Gensan.
The 23-year-old Cagayan de Oro native - who is also the reigning WBC Asian Flyweight (112 lbs) champ - was assisted in South Africa by coach Jose Valendez of Sanman Gym.
The card in East London was a production of South African promoter Andile Sdinile of Sijuta Promotions.
