Results from ALA Promotion in Iloilo: World-Ranked KJ Cataraja and Christian Bacolod Stop Foes

Cataraja (C) poses with his team after Friday's win.
Cataraja and Bacolod victorious. Unbeaten world-ranked Cebuano warriors KJ Cataraja and Christian Bacolod secured crushing knockout wins during the entertaining ALA Promotions' Bakbakan Sa Passi Friday, July 26, at the Passi City Arena in Iloilo Province.

In the main event, WBO # 11 super flyweight KJ Cataraja of the ALA Gym pummeled and rocked in three chapters unheralded Bukidnon combatant Delfin de Asis (9-8, 6 KO's), advancing his fighting career and improving his standing in the 115-pounds world-rankings.

From the getgo, the taller Cataraja was by far the superior warrior, delivering damaging blows from his orthodox stance.

None of the boxers ever visited the canvas, however during the action of round three referee Dan Nietes stopped the fighting to give boxer De Asis a standing eight-second count.

The battle ended seconds later when De Asis turned his back to his opponent, as it can be seen in the below video. Official time of stoppage was 1:30 in round three.

Born in Tabuelan, northern Cebu, KJ Cataraja, 24, is the reigning WBO Youth titlist in the weight-class were the champion in Japanese four-division world champion star Kazuto Ioka (24-2, 14 KO's).

CO-FEATURE: BACOLOD DESTROYS ROJO WITH LEFT HOOK TO THE LIVER

In the co-feature, WBO # 13, WBC # 37 Light Flyweight Christian Bacolod (11-0, 8 KO's) from Bantayan Island in northern Cebu City, wearing in his trunk the colors red, white and green of the Mexican flag, mercilessly attacked and crushed brave Boholano Garry Rojo (9-13-1, 5 KO's) to score a devastating round two TKO victory, keeping his undefeated record untouched.


WBO No. 13 Light Flyweight Christian Bacolod destroys opponent in Iloilo.

One huge left hook sent by Bacolod into Rojo's liver did the total damage, dropping Rojo in obvious pain in a neutral corner, the third man was Rex Ferrer reaching the count of ten.

Official time was 56 seconds in chapter 2.

The hard-hitting Christian Bacolod, 24, looked confident, effective and strong as he keeps ascending in the world-ratings in the hot and fast division where the new WBO king and ruler is Mexican puncher Elwin "La Pulga" Soto (15-1, 11 KO's).

FILIPINO-JAPANESE HOSAKA ROCKS FOE

In lightweights, Filipino-Japanese southpaw Go Hosaka (3-0, 2 KO's) of San Fernando, La Union, sporting in his fighting trunks the national flags of Japan and the Philippines, recorded a round four TKO win over unheralded 28-year-old "Daredevil" Romnick Magos (10-10, 4 KO's) of Mabinay, Negros Oriental.


Winning Filipino-Japanese Go Hosaka poses with VIP's, including Mayor Stephen Palmares and Vice Mayor Jesry Palmares.

The battle ended due to a dangerous cut on Magos' right eye, forcing referee Dan Nietes to waive fight off on advise from the GAB doctor. Official time of stoppage was 2:51 in frame four.

The tall 22-year-old Go Hosaka -- born in Japan, living in the Philippines -- keeps on improving his skills and punching power while earning more and more fans here in the Visayas. Hosaka had in his corner ALA's head coach Edito Villamor.

MORE RESULTS FROM PASSI CITY, ILOILO

In another rough battle, hard-swinging, young super flyweight Danny Villafuerte (3-0, 3 KO's) of Hinobaan, Negros Occidental, ravaged in five rounds tough 18-year-old combatant Christian Jude Capuno (2-1, 0 KO) of Bukidnon.

The victory was Villafuerte's third consecutive knock out win; and the heavy-handed Negroense feels more than ready for tougher missions.

Also, 21-year-old flyweight Regie Suganob (2-0, 1 KO) of Dauis in soutwestern Bohol scored a clear four-round unanimous decision victory over boxing newcomer Kier Toreggosa (0-1, 0 KO's), who hails from the beautiful seaside town of Borbon in northern Cebu. Scores were 40-36 (twice) and 39-37 in favor of the Boholano young gun who studies at PMI College.

In the opening clash of titans, 21-year-old rookie Arvin John Sampaga (1-0, 0 KO's) from the nearby Probinsya san Masbate entered with success into pro boxing by edging a majority decision win over fellow newcomer Arce Boy Baranggan (1-1, 0 KO's) of Bukidnon. The 4-rounder rumble was one of the most competitive of the evening.

The exciting boxing event billed as Bakbakan Sa Passi in Iloilo Province, was a production of ALA Promotions in cooperation with the government of the City of Passi.
