With a calculated combination of boxing skills and daring ferocity, Filipino Jaysever Abcede of Valencia City, Bukidnon, fast searched and destroyed in two rounds WBA world-ranked opponent Yutthana Kaensa (aka Stamp Kiatniwat), dethroning him to become the new WBA Asia Flyweight Champion in the afternoon of today Friday (May 18) in the campus of Thonburi University in Nong Khaem District, Bangkok, Kingdom of Thailand.
A heavy underdog, Jaysever Abcede (16-8, 11 KO's) came-in swinging damaging combinations to the head and body of the highly-rated Thai fighter, rocking him to the canvas on the edge of the ring in agonizing pain prompting veteran Thai thirdman Chalerm Prayadsab to administer the full 10-second count for an effective KO in round 2
Before his demise, the Thai warrior Kaensa (19-2, 7 KO's), a former world-title challenger and WBA world's # 7, did land a few good punches to the head of the Filipino Abcede, but not enough to restrain the sheer aggressiveness of the determined 23 year-old Filipino born in Don Carlos, Bukidnon, in the southern island of Mindanao in the Philippines.
The clash in Bangkok for the WBA Asia title was a production of Galaxy Boxing televised in the Kingdom of Thailand on BBTV Channel 7.
