CLAVERAS-BORRES OPBF FLYWEIGHT SILVER CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT ON ‘THE MAIN EVENT’ OVER PINOY BOX OFFICE AT 8:30 P.M. ON SATURDAY

The action-packed bout in which Richard Claveras won the vacant Oriental and Pacific Boxing Federation flyweight Silver title with a hard-fought majority decision over previously unbeaten Jeronil Borres of the 3 Jewels Boxing Stable in Cagayan de Oro City will be featured on Saturday over Pinoy Box Office (PBO) on Sky Cable at 8:30 p.m. with a replay on Sunday at 8:30 .am.
Although Judges Nowel Haduca (77-76) and Fernando Batistil (77-75) scored the fight for Claveras while Greg Ortega had it even at 76-76, Borres was clearly upset by the decision and felt he had done enough to win but he eased off in the middle rounds and paid the price.
While Borres nailed Claveras with some stinging uppercuts and right straights, Claveras who belongs to the United Boxing Gym in Malate, Manila was the aggressor throughout and never let-up even when he was in trouble.
The work-rate and punching power of Claveras ultimately prevailed in a very close bout that was watched by charming Bacoor City Mayor Lani Mercado, wife of Senator Bong Revilla, herself a boxing fan who has often watched the fights of Senator Manny Pacquiao, the eight division world champion in Las Vegas.
