CEBU CITY -- Comebacking Rey 'Boom-Boom' Bautista sends Marangin Marbun crashing to the canvas towards the end of the 7th round to win by TKO and capture the WBC International Interim Featherweight Title at the Waterfront Hotel here tonight.
Bautista, who scored a knockdown over the game Indonesian in the 4th round, first wobbled Marbun with a jab from his rehabilitated left hand and then followed it up with an overhand right as referee Bruce McTavish didn't bother to finish the count to end the contest.
Bautista, always exciting to watch because of his all-action offensive style, also took several hard shots from the fine Indonesian that silenced the jampacked crowd.
In other bouts, Czar Amonsot won by unanimous decision over Jesus Muzaka Singwacha.
Jason Pagara, held on in the last round, to win by unanimous decision over Decha Kokietgym. Pagara earlier dominated the contest against the Thailander but failed to put away Kokietgym for good which allowed Kokietgym to rally in the last round.
Majun Yap boxed very well against former world title challenger Pramuansak Posuwan of Thailand to win by TKO in the last round after the 39-year-old Thai refused to continue because of leg cramps to sweep all the visitors in tonight's event.
More to come ...
