Peñalosa stops Kietmangmee in 4 in Last Hurrah

Sun, 10 Oct 2010
Former two division world champion Gerry Peñalosa scored a 4th round TKO win over Yodsaenkeng Kietmangmee of Thailand in a fight held at the Zamboanga City Coliseum. Peñalosa informed this writer through text of the fight result. Peñalosa had stated earlier that this will be the last fight of his 21 year career.
Proceeds of this bout, which consists mainly of the TV rights given to Gerry, will be given to Z “The Dream” Gorres to help him with his continuing medical expenses. Gorres has undergone two operations on his upper airway since he was sidelined by a career-ending brain injury when he fought Colombian Luis Melendez in Las Vegas in November 2009.
Peñalosa leaves the ring with a record of 55 wins, 37 by KO with 8 losses and two draws. He will always have a special place in the hearts of Filipino boxing fans.
