Flash Elorde's grandson Miguel KO's opponent, remains undefeated (Photos)


PhilBoxing.com




MANILA, Philippines - In a impressive technical KO, undefeated Filipino super bantamweight Juan Miguel "Mig" Elorde, grandson of legendary hall-of-fame world champion Gabriel "Flash" Elorde destroyed brave compatriot Saddam Eyo to win his 10th professional fight Thursday night (Aug. 11) at the Sofitel Plaza Hotel in Manila, Philippines.

One powerful left hook thrown by Elorde broke the lower gum of Saddam Eyo forcing the brave Cavite figher to surrender from obvious pain. The dramatic development prompted referee-lawyer Danrex Tapdasan to stop the combat at 2:24 of the third stanza.

GAB's ring physician Doctora Mae Bañez, who spent minutes applying pressure on Eyo's wound to stop the bleeding, informed Philboxing that "he (Saddam Eyo) has got a broken lower gum, was bleeding a lot, probably his whole jaw was broken. He needs x-rays and medical treatment."

During the three rounds of fight, "Migs" Elorde looked fast and accurate while showcasing his good boxing skills in front of his biggest fan and supporter, his grandmother Madame Laura Elorde.

Welterweight world champion Manny Pacquiao as well as distinguished members of the Rotary Club attended the suit-and-tie boxing event staged at the grand ballroom of the Sofitel Plaza Hotel.
