Nam-Joon Lee Decisions Gomera, Captures WBA Asia Title in South Korea

South Korean Featherweight Champion Nam-Joon Lee scored a 12-round unanimous decision win over tough Filipino Jelbirt Gomera to claim the vacant WBA Asia 126-lbs title on Saturday June 24 in Suncheon, South Korea.

By capturing the WBA Asia crown, the lanky 33-year-old Nam-Jom Lee (10-5-3, 4 KO's) is likely to be included among the WBA top-15 featherweights, a division where the reigning king is Mexican Leo "Terremoto" Santa Cruz (33-1-1, 18 KO's).

In contrast, the 25-year-old Jelbirt Gomera - born in Sultan Kudarat - weakens his record to 12-3, with 6 KO's, but remains committed to his boxing career, willing to quickly bounce back with a win.


Jelbirt and Nam Joom Lee now friends after 12 torrid rounds of fisticuffs. The Korean won by points.

Right after the fight, this is what the brave Gomera of Benguet's Highland Boxing had to say:

"Sa lahat po ng sumuporta sa aking laban ngyon salamat po sa inyo. Sorry po talo po ako ginawa ko po ang lahat ngunit nabigo po ako talo po ako. Natapos po namin ng 12 rounds decision lang po. Bawi nalng po tayo sa sunod po. Kahit natalo po ako proud po parin ang mga nanunuod sa akin dito sa Korea. At proud pa rin ako sa sarili ko baka hindi pa po para sa atin mga kabayan. Babangon pa rin ako sa mga susunod kong laban. At salamat sa kalaban ko pinunthan talaga ako para magpa picture sa akin."

The Nam-Joon Lee vs Jelbrit Gomera for the WBA Asia Featherweight title was a production of Korea Promotions and was broadcast live in South Korea on MBC Sports Channel.
