Daud Yordan In Career's Second Wind, Captures WBO/IBA Belts


PhilBoxing.com




Former 2-division world champion Daud "Cino" Yordan (40-3, 28 KO's) breathes a second wind in his long boxing career, capturing more belts, and the 32-year-old warrior -- one of the most accomplished Indonesian fighters of his generation -- wants for more.

Yordan's most recent success was a double-championship stoppage win over South African southpaw Michael Mokoena (15-5, 10 KO's) in Batu, Indonesia, to claim the IBA Super Lightweight World Title and the WBO Oriental 140 lbs belt.

From the sound of the first round, the more accomplished "Cino" Yordan made good use of his experience and superior boxing skills to outbox and punish the brave Mokoena who showed guts and fighting spirit, credentials of African warriors.

However, it was meant to be Yordan's night as he relentlessly pursued and finished Mokoena with a barrage of damaging blows that Mokoena could not handle, prompting veteran third man Nus Ririhena to halt actions at the 2:57 minute mark in chapter eight.

The victory hands Yordan the IBA 140-pound world strap, his third world title in three different weight classes. He has previously been IBO world titlist at 126 and 135.

The Indonesian is likely to get ranked among the world's top 15 super lightweight boxers by the WBO in the division where the world champion is popular 27-year-old Mexican-American Jose Carlos Ramirez (25-0, 17 KO's).


Ongen and Demecillo trade blows in Batu, Indonesia.

CO-FEATURE: ONGEN DECISIONS DEMECILLO

In the co-feature, heavy-banger Indonesian 126-pounder Ongen Saknosiwi (8-0, 7 KO's) scored a clear 12-round unanimous decision win over tough and experienced warrior Marco Demecillo (24-9-1, 19 KO's) of Iligan City, Philippines.

The triumph makes Ongen the new IBA Featherweight World Champion.

The double-header in Batu, Indonesia, was a successful televised production of promoters Urgyen Rinchen Sim and Raja Sapta Oktohari of Mahkota Promotions.

Matchmaker for the event was Alexander Shah, promoter of Thailand's popular boxing show Evolution Fight Series.
