CASIMERO RETAINS IBF WORLD FLYWEIGHT TITLE WITH 10TH ROUND TKO OF CHARLIE EDWARDS


PhilBoxing.com




International Boxing Federation flyweight champion Johnreil Casimero retained his title with a 10th round TKO over previously unbeaten Briton Charlie Edwards before a huge crowd at the sprawling O2 Arena in London, early morning Manila Time, Sunday.

Casimero was far too good for the 23 year old Edwards who was only in his 9th fight as a pro and clearly showed his lack of experience against the hard-hitting Filipino who has a record of 23-3 with 15 knockouts.

Casimero paced himself in the early rounds and piled up the points with solid body shots and a repertoire of overhand rights, uppercuts and combinations and although Edwards battled gamely he was clearly out of his depth.

Casimero was adept at slipping Edwards jabs and showed the kind of footwork that negated the British fighter?s claim that Casimero was too slow and he would use his speed to outbox him.

Casimero connected with a overhand right in round four followed by a ripping uppercut that buckled the knees of a shaky Edwards who however came back and had his best showing in round five when a cut above Casimero?s eyebrow seemed to bother him.

But the Filipino who was in control of the fight connected with two right hands and then cracked Edwards with two body shots as the Briton held on in rounds eight and nine. Sensing that the end was near as Edwards seemed hurt and befuddled, Casimero pushed the pace and went for a knockout, dropping Edwards with a perfectly timed left hook in round ten but although the game challenger beat the count, Casimero waded into the hapless Briton and with the challenger obviously in no position to continue referee Steve Gray of Lancashire, England checked out the badly battered Edwards and stopped the fight at 1:57 of the 10th round.

While Edwards suffered his first defeat after 8 wins including 3 knockouts, Casimero improved to 23-3 with 15 knockouts.
