Undefeated Filipino southpaw Ben Mananquil (10-0-2, 2 KO's) of Zamboanga del Norte and tough Chinese fighter Xiang Jing (7-3-2, 1 KO) battled to a exciting draw last night in Changsha, China; leaving the WBO Asia Pacific Flyweight title vacant.
In the co-main event, 27 year-old former Olympian Razvan Cojanu (11-1, 6 KO's) of Romania overpowered Argentinian veteran Manuel Alberto Pucheta (37-10, 30 KO's) via TKO in round 7 to claim the vacant WBO Asia Pacific Heavyweight belt.
The international card in Changsha, China, was a production of Chinese promoter Liu Gang of Zovi Boxing.
