KING ARTHUR VILLANUEVA ERASES THE MEMORY OF A CONTROVERSIAL WIN AGAINST JUAN JIMENEZ WITH A DEVASTATING KNOCKOUT IN TWO ROUNDS


PhilBoxing.com




Bantamweight King Arthur Villanueva erased the memory of a controversial win over Juan Jimenez last May in Bacolod City who begged for a rematch from ALA Promotions president Michael Aldeguer who gave him the opportunity, hadn?t a chance after King Arthur scored a devastating knockout in two rounds before a predominantly Filipino crowd and a fair number of Mexicans at the StubHub Center in Carson City, California, Sunday morning, Manila Time.

With the impressive victory Villanueva who is ranked No. 1 by the WBO where another Filipino Marlon Tapales was recently crowned champion with a spectacular 11th round KO of Thai champion Pungluang Sor Singyu, redeemed himself after losing in a battle for the IBF super flyweight title in a somewhat controversial 10th round technical decision to Puerto Rico?s McJoe Arroyo in a clash for the IBF world title in July last year at the Don Haskins Convention Center in El Paso, Texas.

Villanueva didn?t have the power of Jimenez but after a feeling out opening round the Filipino threw a right hook that was Jimenez blocked but ripped a second, perfectly timed hook that caught Jimenez on the jaw and dropped him flat on his back with referee Jerry Cantu not even bothering to count.

The time of the KO was 2:20 of the second round and re-established the championship contender credentials of King Arthur Villanueva who improves his record to 30-1 with 16 knockouts while a disappointed Jimenez who was forced to wear ten ounce gloves after he failed to make the weight after two attempts but still came in one pound over the limit, dropped to 22-11 with 15 knockouts.

In a post fight interview with Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN, Villanueva said he ?wanted a convincing win but didn?t realize it would come so soon. I merely followed the instructions of my coach? and thanked strength and conditioning coach Nick Curson for his help.


Jimenez drops to the canvas face first after a devastating punch by Villanueva during their WBO Asia-Pacific bantamweight battle at the StubHub Center in Carson, California Saturday.
