DAPUDONG STOPS BATAWANG; MAGBANUA THRASHES THAI

PhilBoxing.com


Cebu City - Veteran world title campaigner Bert Batawang of Cebu City yielded his World Boxing Organization (WBO) Oriental Junior Flyweight crown to 23-year-old Edrin "The Sting" Dapudong as he wilted under the relentless body and head attacks of the young challenger hitting the canvas twice before finally giving up halfway in the 7th round of the 12-round exciting match at the Cebu City Coliseum.

Batawang, 36, who came into the ring a heavy favorite with a fearsome ring record of 40 wins against 6 losses with 34 knockouts, was apparently stunned by the ferocity and tenacity of the challenger from the Braveheart Boxing Club of North Cotabato who stood toe to toe with him and exchanged heavy blows with the champion from the first round up to the fateful 7th.


Dapudong sent Batawang to the canvas for the first time in the 5th round when he caught the champion with a right straight followed by a left hook. Then in the 7th, a visibly hurt Batawang took another right uppercut-left cross combination to the head which sent him sprawling to the canvas for the 2nd time.

Referee Tony Pesons declared Dapudong the new WBO Oriental junior flyweight champion via a 7th round technical knockout.

Dapudong now has a record of 21 wins, 2 losses and 17 KOs and is now the third boxer from the Braveheart Boxing of Vice Gov. Manny Pinol of North Cotabato to win a regional boxing title this year.

In the main event which was overshadowed by the exciting encounter between Batawang and Dapudong, WBO Oriental Bantamweight Interim Champion Rolando Magbanua made mincemeat out of Thailand's Wan Sithsaithong knocking out the Thai challenger in the 3rd round of a 12-round title fight.

Magbanua, called the "Smooth Operator" because of his fluid boxing style, took control of the fight from the first round until Sithsaithong was counted out in the 3rd round following a cracking right to the jaw of the Thai challenger.

In a special bout of the night, undefeated South Korean sensation Jong Hwa Lee was knocked out by Braveheart Boxing Club's Richard Betos in the 8th of an 8-round fight. Betos, a favorite protege of Nonito Donaire Sr., is now 8 wins, 1 loss, 4 KOs while Lee is now 8 wins and 1 loss.

In the other fights:
- Lorenzo "Thunderbolt" Villanueva knocked out Thailand's Viratnoi Sithsoey in the 3rd. Villanueva, a featherweight, is now 14 wins with 14 KOs;
- Miniflyweight Rommel "Little Assassin: Asenjo only needed 34 seconds to knockout W. Sithsoey also of Thailand in the 1st round. Asenjo is now 13 wins, 2 losses with 11 KOs.
- Flyweight Jermie Jabel KOd Cebu City's Rey Villar in the 4th of 6 rounds. Jabel is now 10 wins, 7 KOs, 1 draw.
- Jr. Featherweight Rey Juntilla KOd Jerry Pajal in the 1st round; Rolando Magallano won over John Dieta; Rogelio Canete of Braveheart Boxing Club defeated Andy Seneres in 4; Randy Lagos of Braveheart won over John Paul Colon in 4.

The event at the Cebu Coliseum was marked by two historic firsts: the use of the Internet Live Streaming through www.pinoyboxingtv.com and the local-made Tibay boxing gloves, made in Cebu, in the two Oriental championship matches.
