Tabugon survives against Purisima in Yanig sa Tboli


PhilBoxing.com




T'BOLI, South Cotabato -- Reigning International Boxing Organization (IBO) Inter-continental light-flyweight champion Raymund “Tornado” Tabugon scored an early knockdown to win by a unanimous decision against Philippine Boxing Federation (PBF) flyweight champion Juan “Punisher” Purisima in the main event of the “Yanig sa T’boli” boxing event Sunday night at the T’boli Municipal Gym.

Tabugon earlier knocked down the flashy Purisima in the 4th round with a quick right stab. But Tabugon suffered a deep cut on his left eyebrow due an accidental headbutt in the 8th round.
It gained confidence for the Bacolod-based Purisima, who started to attack with his left jabs. But Tabugon was able to protect himself with counter punches and left-right combinations.
The 23-year old Tabugon, also World Boxing Council (WBC) Asia Boxing Council Continental flyweight title-holder decided to trade punches at close range to avoid being hit by Purisima’s quick jabs.

Judges Romeo Fordeliza and Sabas Ponpon Jr. both scored it 96-92 while judge Brembot Dulalas saw it 97-91 all in favor of Tabugon, who improved his record to 16 wins with 6 knockouts, 3 loses and one draw.

Purisima, who was coached by his elder brother and world-rated Jetli, suffered his 7th loss against 11 wins, 4 KOs and 1 draw.
“It was a good fight. I thanked the promoters and all the boxers for entertaining us,” said T’boli Municipal Mayor Dibu S. Tuan.
The boxing card was promoted by the Sanman Promotions of Jim Claude Manangquil, Dexter Tan and John Ray Manangquil in celebration of the 41st Foundation anniversary of T’boli and 17th Seslong Festival.

Five other fighters from Sanman Stable of General Santos City all won in the undercard.

Adamdiu Abdulhamid (5 wins-2 loses) also won by a unanimous decision after surviving against the clinching of come backing Jeasar Ancajas (15 wins, 7 Kos, 27 loss, 2 draws) of MP Davao Gym.

Undefeated Marquil Salvaña (5 wins, 0 loss) outpunched journeyman Jonathan Ricablanca (8 wins, 46 loses) of Bislig in their 8-rounder while Reymart Gaballo (8 wins, 6 Kos, 0 Loss) also kept his clean record by connecting a solid punch on the midsection to stop Michael Padayag (7 wins, 4 loses, 1 draw) of Mayor James Yap Stable of Glan in 1:49 of the first round by a technical knockout.

Mike Angelo Plania (5 wins, 3 Kos, 0 loss) pummeled to submission Paolo Perono (2 wins, 7 loses) by a solid body shot in 1:23 of the opening round for a TKO win.

Rinmar Metuda (6 wins, 3 Kos, 0 loss) remained undefeated via a TKO against rookie Ronnie Buscato in 2:13 of the first round in the curtain raiser.

More than 4,000 people witnessed the boxing event held for the first time since 20 years ago. The last slugfest in T’boli was held in the 70s during the time of T’boli’s first mayor Mai Tuan, the late father of Mayor Dibu.

Also present was Festival Director Vice Mayor Grace Silva, Municipal Government Operations Center Administrator Salvador Ramos Sr. and Association of Boxing Alliances in the Phils. (ABAP) Region 12 secretary-general Sonny Sombrio. – LITO DELOS REYES
