Concepcion Stops Barrera in 11th; Claims WBA Interim 112 Title in "KO to Drugs Festival" in Panama


PhilBoxing.com




Concepcion celebrates title win by backflipping over Referee Rafael Ramos.

PANAMA CITY, Panama -- In an exciting action, veteran Panamanian slugger Luis "Nica" Concepcion rocked and stopped tough Colombian Rober Barrera (23-3, 13 KO's) in the 11th chapter of their thrilling battle to capture the vacant WBA Interim Flyweight Title tonight at the Roberto Duran Arena in Panama City, Panama.

The always dangerous "Nica" Concepcion absorbed tough hands sent by the hard-swinging Barrera, but the Colombian could not handle Concepcion's brutal eleventh-round one-two power combination that propelled him spiraling backwards all the way down to the gray canvas near by the red corner.

The brave Barrera managed to come back up from the floor, but a renewed furious attack powered by "Nica" Concepcion pinned the already wounded Colombian against the ropes where he was forced to take additional lethal blows to the head till Puerto Rican Hall-of-Famer third man Rafael Ramos halted actions to spare Barrera from unnecessary violence.

After his title win, Luis "Nica" Concepcion (39-8, 28 KO's) celebrated victory by climbing to the red corner's top rope from where he performed a back-flip jump, flying over the referee.

The victory opens the door for Concepcion to battle for the WBA "regular" Flyweight Strap.
