SPORTSCLOPEDIA 47: CHARLY SUAREZ WANTS TO FIGHT HIS OLYMPIC NEMESIS THEN SHOOT FOR THE WORLD TITLE


PhilBoxing.com



Charly Suarez.

Charly Suarez was a competitor at the 2016 Rio Olympics and a three-time Southeast Asian Games gold medalist when he fought as an amateur. His dream is to face British Joe Cordina, the foe who beat him in the Rio Olympics by a split decision. If he beats Cordina, he said he will shoot for the world title.

* * *

Cordina was defeated by Hurshid Tojibaev of Uzbekistan in the Round of 16 in Rio de Janeiro. Now at age 31, Cordina from Cardiff, Wales held the IBF super-featherweight title in 2022. He was also the British and Commonwealth lightweight champion between 2018 and 2019.

* * *

As an amateur, he won a bronze medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and gold at the 2015 European Championships, both in the lightweight division.

* * *

Cordina now has a professional record of 15-0 with 9 KOs. Cordina will face Shavkat Rakhimov of Tajikistan on April 22, 2023 at the Cardiff International Arena, Cardiff, Wales for the IBF super featherweight title.

* * *

Suarez shocked hometown favorite Paul Fleming with a 12th round technical knockout and seized three regional titles at the Kevin Betts Stadium in Sydney, Australia last March 15.

* * *

Suarez hit Fleming with a savage left hook that floored the Australian to the mat. Fleming got up but before he could shake the cobwebs in his head, Suarez sent a flurry of punches which the Aussie couldn't defend and referee Pat O’Connor stopped the fight at 1:58 remaining of the 12th and final round.

* * *

He won the IBF Inter-Continental Super Featherweight title, IBO Inter-Continental Super Featherweight title, WBA Oceania Super Featherweight title, and WBC Asian Boxing Council Super Featherweight title.

* * *

Suarez also remained undefeated with a slate of 15-0 with nine knockout wins, while Fleming suffered his first defeat now with a 28-1-1 with 18 KOs record.

* * *

Suarez, age 34, is from Sawata, Davao del Norte, and is an orthodox fighter. The southpaw Fleming, also age 34, hails from Tully, Queensland.

* * *

Suarez launched a flurry of combinations forcing referee Pat O’Connor to stop the bout at the 1:58 mark of the 12th round.

* * *

When the fight was stopped, Fleming was way ahead in the judges' scorecards which was doubtful for the Filipino supporters. Judge Dean Cambridge scored the bout 106-103, Mick Heafey 107-102, and Richard Israel with 108-101 in favor of Fleming. All three judges are Australians.
