?WHO?S NEXT? 4?: TEPORA AND ARANETA KO INDONS


PhilBoxing.com




CEBU CITY ? Omega gym boxers Jhack ?El Capitan? Tepora and Christian ?The Bomb? Araneta kept their unbeaten records and made it a very short night for their Indonesian opponents.

The southpaw Tepora shook Yon Armed with a right hook in the opening seconds of the fight and sent him on the back foot with a left to the abdomen. Tepora?s trainer and brother Pingping Tepora pleaded and screamed for Jhack to pace himself and not swing wildly but sensing that his opponent was hurt, the defending WBO Oriental junior featherweight titlist cornered Armed and fired a hard left to the midsection sending the Indonesian down in the neutral corner.

Referee Atty. Danrex Tapdasan signaled the end at the 1:16 mark of the opening canto.

Tepora notches his 20th win and 15th KO, Armed drops to 14-8, 6KO?s.

Araneta won the vacant WBO Oriental light flyweight title with one punch against Demsi Manufoe.

Manufoe seemed petrified from the opening bell and was frantically circling the ring trying in vain to stay away from Araneta.

But Araneta had no problem cutting the ring off and sneaked in a left uppercut sending Manufoe down. Referee Tony Pesons reached ten at 1:41 of the first round. Araneta is now 14-0,12KO?s, Manufoe drops to 11-7,8KO?s.

Supervising the WBO bouts and awarding the belts was WBO VP for Asia-Pacific Leon Panoncillo.

Christian Araneta also won by 1st round knockout over his Indonesian opponent Demsi Manufoe.

Promoter Pio Paulo Castillo spoke to the members of the media present after the fight card and promised to bring tougher opponents for his prized fighters, mentioning either Mexicans or highly ranked local boxers.

Most of the supporting bouts however, were action packed and competitive:

Jessie Cris Rosales? investment in body punches in the opening round paid off when he stopped Jerry Nardo with a cracking body shot in the second round. Tine ? 0:26.

Salatiel Amit beat Renerio Arizala by unanimous decision in a slam-bang ten rounder. Scores ? 98-92 from Arnie Najera and Arnel Pasion, 99-91 from William Manus.

Jerry Castroverde beat a pesky Ryan Quimbo also by unanimous decision. Judges Arnel Pasion, Noel Flores and Edwin Barrientos all scored it 78-74.

Feljun Taneo enaged Jeffrey Stella in a fast-paced brawl with Taneo prevailing by unanimous verdict. Scores ? Arnel Pasion and Edwin Barrientos ? 78-74, Arnie Najera ? 77-75. Tomjune Magubat battered Marvin Tampus with a variety of head and body shots, finishing him in 1:38 of round one.

Mark Vicelles beat up Fabio Marfa until Referee Teddy Alivio decided that Marfa had enough punishment for the night, stopping it at 1:34 of the fifth round. In the night?s opening bout, Marjun Piencenaves won by unanimous decision over Mark Anthony Ando. Scores Noel Flores and William Manus ? 39-37, Arnie Najera ? 40-36.

The fourth edition of the ?WHO?S NEXT?? boxing series was presented by Omega Pro Sports International (OPSI) and was held Saturday at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.
