Sonsona and Jaro Retain Titles in “Slippery” Fights


PhilBoxing.com


Editor's note: We would like to welcome Tam Almeda, son of eminent lawyer and boxing judge Epie Almeda, to the PhilBoxing.com family.

RP super-flyweight champion Eden Sonsona and RP light-flyweight king Sonny Boy Jaro retained their respective belts in contrasting fashions last night at the Ynares Plaza, Binangonan, Rizal.


The “Sagupaan sa Binangonan” (Encounter in Binangonan) was actually a “dapaan” and “tihayaan“ (trips to the canvas) sa Binangonan in which most of the fighters hit the deck courtesy of the slippery canvas.

In the second of the two championship fights dubbed as “main event”, Eden Sonsona “overcame” the slippery ring canvas and number 1 contender Robert Allanic to successfully defend his title. The first round featured few exchanges as both were trying early to read the opponent’s style.

The next rounds showed more action as the fighters exchanged hard body shots.

In the 5th round Allanic suffered a cut on his right eyebrow from what I thought was a punch but which the referee ruled as an accidental head butt. The ring physician signaled to the referee that Allanic is still fit to continue with the fight. Unfortunately midway in the 6th round Allanic again suffered a bigger cut on the left eyebrow which the referee also ruled as caused by a head butt. The referee stopped the fight with Sonsona winning by unanimous technical decision with judges’ scores of 57-56 twice and 58-54.

In the first of the twin-fight “main event”, Sonny ‘Boy’ Jaro retained his title with a split draw with No. 6 contender Wyndel Janiola with the scores of 116-113, 115-114 and 115-115.

I have to admit this one made me scratch my head when the decision was announced. I think Janiola clearly landed more punches. Before the decision was announced, Janiola’s cornermen were already saying that they “finally” had a champ and were in the celebration mode. Imagine their reaction when they heard the unexpected decision…

Note: Sonny ‘Boy’ Jaro is an excellent fighter. That’s why he’s the champion. It’s just that Janiola landed more punches and he landed them ‘convincingly’ that’s why I thought the fight should’ve been his.

A “Special Attraction” featuring RP mini-flyweight champion Florante Condes and number 4 light-flyweight contender Julius Alcos introduced the “main event”. Alcos, at 109 lbs. outweighed Condes by 3 at 106 lbs.

The crowd cheered for the champ as his record of all 21 wins all by way of knockout was announced.

But the first round disappointed the crowd as both fighters almost never exchanged punches. Condes was clearly waiting for Alcos to come in so he could deliver his killer left punch. Alcos, however, was more cautious because he was aware of the KO power of his opponent. He almost made this one a wrestling match as he lifted and threw Condes on the floor a couple of times. I don’t know if this was his technique to bother the champ and get him off his game.

As the fight and the rounds went on, Alcos held his ground by returning hard punches to Condes. The champ was too predictable in his attacks. He used the right hand jabs, 2 to 3 jabs, and then followed by the left to the body. All Alcos had to do was block or get out of the way and that’s why Condes landed just a few of that all powerful left. Condes got the nod of all 3 judges with scores of 78-74, 79-75 and 78-76.

Note: It was amusing how the Binangonan crowd reacted everytime Condes, a Binangonan fighter, hit the floor. They thought he went down because he got hit. Give “credit” again to the slippery floor which contributed much to make the crowd attentive.

Other results:

Jack Asis defeated Victor Man-On by TKO at 1’ 31” of the 4th round in their 10-round featherweight fight. Asis knocked down Man-On and caused the latter’s mouthpiece to fly off his mouth before the fight was mercifully stopped. Man-on’s face was a mess and his eyes were almost closed when the fight was over. One cut was caused by an accidental head butt in the first round which became worse as the fight went on.

Danilo Lerio won by Technical Decision over Bryan Vicera when their 10-round flyweight fight was stopped at 2’ 52” of the 5th round due to a bad cut on Vicera’s eyelid after a clash of heads. Lerio send Vicera to the mat in the 1st round as Vicera was trying to find a way to penetrate Lerio’s defense. He never did find it. Vicera sent him to the canvas with a right cross to the head in the first round.

The 116 lb fight between Mario ‘Jun’ De Asis and Gedion Amba ended in a majority draw result. I describe the as the ‘never-ending-low blow-fight’ for because if there was a scorecard on low blows, De Asis would’ve won the fight convincingly. He gave at least 3 to 4 low blows in each round. That’s why he was deducted a point in the 3rd and the 5th rounds after repeated warnings. Other low blows were either not seen or condoned by the referee. De Asis could’ve won that fight had there been no deductions from low blows. The scores were 75-75 twice and 77-73 for De Asis.

In their flyweight 6-round fight, Renan Dioso out-punched Irwin Pulvera and scored a TKO at 2’ 40” in the 5th round when Pulvera’s trainer waved to the referee signaling surrender to spare his fighter from more beating. Dioso showed class and poise as he landed punches from his combos – a simple barrage of left and right punches to the delight of the crowd.

Casa Arman won by unanimous decision over Roy Jones Jr. with scores of 59-57, 58-56, and 58-56 in their flyweight 6-round fight.

110 pounder Daniel Fereras won by a unanimous decision, thrice, over Jeffrey Pulvera.

Jet Lee Purisima floored Dino Lelis in the 4th round as he won the fight by a unanimous, 40-35 thrice, decision.

In the 135 lb 4-rounder, Dan Nazareno Jr. TKO’d Biboy Codeldiego at 48 seconds in the 4th round.
