MACAO- In a nail-biting contest, Genesis Servania overcame a tough Konosuke Tomiyama by ninth round split technical decision. A wild opening round saw Servania drop the Japanese with a left hook but Tomiyama got up and dropped the overeager Servania with a quick left.
Tomiyama swarmed on Servania when he got up and knocked him down again but the Bacolod fighter survived the onslaught.
Servania used his boxing skills in the second and knocked down Tomiyama with hard rights in the third round. But the Japanese showed his heart and resiliency and kept poking at Servania with his sharp jab.
Servania hurt Tomiyama with hard one-two combos in the subsequent rounds but the Japanese kept firing hard shots of his own. Servania built a lead with quick combinations but the Japanese was still in the fight despite being hurt on several occasions.
A cut on Servania’s left eyebrow, ruled due to a clash of heads by referee Danrex Tapdasan, lead to the fight stoppage.
Tomiyama celebrated thinking that he won but the fight went to the three judges’ cards – Sawaeng Thaweekoon had it 85-84 for Tomiyama, judge Salven Lagumbay 86-83 for Servania and Takeshi Shimakawa – 87-82 also for Servania.
Servania remains undefeated at 22-0, 8 KO’s. Tomiyama drops to 23-6-2, 8 KO’s.
Dave Peñalosa opened the festivities with a third round knockout win over Ngaotawa Sithsaithong of Thailand. After a tentative first couple of rounds, the southpaw Peñalosa opened up and dropped Sithsaithong on all fours with a quick left uppercut.
The referee reached the ten count at the 45 second mark.
Peñalosa remains unbeaten at 7-0, 5 KO’s.
