However, the stronger 24 year-old Tubiano, trained by veteran coach Jun Labandia, came out better focused for second chapter, clipping Gonzales with one solid uppercut to the jaw that rocked Gonzalez down to the Quibors Gym mat where the Camerines Sur boxer got counted-out by experienced third man Architect Sir Elmo L. Coloma of Quezon City. Official GAB time of stoppage was 1:51 in round 2.
Also, 20 year-old featherweight Jules Victoriano (9-1, 6 KO's) of Iloilo outclassed rough Gensan-born brawler Landy Cris Leon for stoppage win in 4th chapter as Leon surrender on his corner, not coming out for the next round.

In bantamweights, 24 year-old ATA Boxing Stable fighter Jesel Guardario (7-2-1, 3 KO's) of Pangasinan dominated Jayar "The Dominator" Diama (7-14-7, 3 KO's) of Sarangani for an 8-round unanimous decision win.

Moreover, "The Tornado" Denmark Quibido (7-0, 5 KO's) brought his damaging winds upon the very limited Dexter Dimaculangan (3-18-5, 1 KO) of San Pablo, Laguna. So brutal was the huge uppercut on the face of Dexter that worrisome amounts of blood immediately poured down the nose of the brave Dexter, a fighter who has lost all his last 14 fights, with only 3 wins in 23 fights.
The question in the mind of boxing fans is: "Would Quibido look as a dangerous as he did if pitted against a man of a higher fighting caliber?" Time will tell.

As a result, scores were close: 58-56 (twice) and 57-57, a majority verdict for the winner Francis Jay Diaz, and fans would like a rematch.
