SANTISIMA DISMANTLES TANZANIAN MREMA IN ONE ROUND IN CEBU

The the co-feature of Pinoy Pride 41: New Generation Warriors, promising Filipino Jeo "Santino" Santisima (14-2, 12 KO's) punished with violent hands Tanzania Super Bantamweight champion Goodluck Mrema, 22, vaporizing him in the very first round at the IEC Convention Center in Cebu City Saturday night.
It was the then-undefeated Goodluck Mrema (now 16-1, 8 KO's) the one who started aggressively from the get-go, throwing hands at the Filipino Santisima who had to counter, which he did effectively, rocking badly the Tanzanian warrior, and finally caught him with a vicious overhand right to the jaw that fell Mrema like a tree. Mrema tried to get up but Referee Tony Pesons waived off the fight after seeing the Tanzanian unfit to continue as Mrema appeared to be in another dimension.
With the win, Santisima achieved his 12th consecutive victory, 11 of them by way of knock out; and now "Santino" needs a world-ranked opponent.
