PhilBoxing.com




FILIPINO slugger Sonny ?Pinoy Hearns? Katiandagho survived a first round knockdown to stop then undefeated Rafik Harutjunjan of Armenia in the third round by a technical knockout to capture the vacant WBC Eurasia Pacific Boxing Council welterweight crown last Saturday night at the Sichuan Gymnasium in Chengdu, China.
Katiandagho, a native of General Santos City was surprisingly downed by a right over hang to his head in the opening round. But he was able to stand up to even answer back in the second round by also knocking down the Amernian with solid body shots.
?The opponent is strong but because Sonny have trained well he was able to recover immediately from the knockout,? said manager Brico Santig in a text message.

Katiandagho downed his opponent with body shots in the second round. He continued hurting the Amernian with telling body blows in the third round until the referee saw that Harutjunjan was already badly hurt and trying to run away from the Filipino fighter.

The referee stopped the fight before the end of the third round.

?Suerte at tinalo natin ang isang undefeated. Pero basta?t may tamang ensayo at preparasyon, malaki talaga ang chance sa boxer na manalo (We?re luck to beat an undefeated. But with a good training and preparation, there is always a good chance for a boxer to win), said trainer Joven Jorda.

?Nagpapasalamat po ako sa ating Panginoon at binigyan nya po ulit ako nang pakakataon na manalo,? (I thanked our Lord God for giving again another chance to win) said Katiangdagho.

The 23-year old Katiandagho improved his record to 10 straight wins with six knockouts and one loss while Harutjunjan suffered his first setback after nine straight wins.

Meanwhile, Rogelio Casarez of the United States captured the IBU World Championship super featherweight title via a majority decision against Thailand?s Ronnakit Boontree.

Casarez improved to 12-5-0-5 KO while Boontree suffered his first defeat against 8 wins with 5 KOs.

In the double championship fight for the WBC Silver and IBU World Female titles, newly-crowned WBC Silver female super featherweight champion Melissa ?Little Miss Tyson? St Vil of Brooklyn, New York defeated ex-IBF World female super bantamweight champion feisty female super featherweights Katy Wilson ?La Super Baby? Castillo of Dominican Republic by a convincing unanimous decision.

St Vil now has 8-2-3 slate while Castillo dropped to 18-2-0 card.
The boxing card was presented by the Manny Pacquiao Promotions China under Jun Tao.
