GORRES, TUNACAO WIN; PAGARA IS NEW WBO YOUTH CHAMP


PhilBoxing.com




World title hope Z "The Dream" Gorres of ALA Boxing Gym cruised to a shutout unanimous decision over Kenya's Nick Otieno in the main event of Saturday's night's "One More Time" card at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel.

The bout saw Gorres displaying his superb boxing skills, but the ALA fighter just could not put away the game Otieno despite numerous big shots landing on the visiting fighter.

All three judges saw the fight 100-90 in favor of Gorres, who now improves to 28 wins, 2 losses, 2 draws with 15 KO's.

With the win, Gorres solidifies his chances at facing the winner of the August 2 Dmitri Kirilov-Vic Darchinyan IBF superfly title showdown in the United States.

In the chief support, ex-WBC flyweight ruler Malcolm "Eagle Eye" Tunacao proved he's back with a first-round TKO over Kenya's Rashid Ally.

The southpaw Tunacao caught Ally with a big left to chest, after which the visiting fighter turned his back complaining of an injury. Referee Ben Necesario waved off the fight as Ally was in no condition to resume fighting.

Ringside physicians later said Ally injured his elbow after the big blow by Tunacao.

With the win, Tunacao improves to 22 wins, 2 losses, 3 draws with 15 KO's.

Sixteen-year-old phenom Jason Pagara, egged on by the presence of Misamis Oriental Governor Oscar Moreno, won the WBO Asia Pacific Youth lightweight title after Indonesian Heri Andriyanto refused to answer the bell at the start of the third round.

Pagara sent Andriyanto down in the second round, but the Indon refused to go down and exchanged shots with his younger foe.

WBO Asia Pacific chairman Leon Panoncillo, who supervised the fight, said he was impressed by Pagara's performance, and told the fighter he would be highly rated by the WBO soon.

Jether Oliva of General Santos took a unanimous decision win over Jason Rotoni of Elorde Gym, while Jun Intor and Ali Belonquel figured in a highly-entertaining fight before ending up in a majority draw.

The night's big revelation, however, was the young Juan Miguel Elorde, grandson of the great Flash Elorde, who showed tremendous promise in a one-sided beatdown of Racem Laud. Elorde knocked down Laud in the fourth round, although the Bacolod City fighter hang on for dear life to hear the final bell.

Romeo Jakosalem stopped Elmer Colve in the fifth round, while Jerson Mancio retained his perfect record with a unanimous verdict over Ratazu Matzui.
