TAGBILARAN CITY--Someone's O had got to go!
In a battle of two undefeated fighters, AJ Banal of ALA Stable proved better with a devastating fifth-round knockout win over Indonesia's Ali Rochmad in the main event of a big card here for the Sandugo festival.
Banal caught Rochmad with big lefts in the opening round, sending the visiting fighter twice in the first round.
In the fifth, Rochmad was caught off-guard by a series of punches that sent him down for good as referee Tony Pesons tolled the count.
