LITO SISNORIO DIES AFTER BEING KO’D BY SASAKUL


PhilBoxing.com


Super flyweight Lito Sisnorio, a former WBC Youth Champion has died some hours after he suffered a fourth round knockout at the hands of former WBC flyweight champion Chatchai Sasakul at the Wat Sing School in Thailand.

Scott Mallon, a well-known boxing writer reported the death hours after we posted a story on the defeat of Sisnorio in a blatant mismatch between the 24 year old Filipino who was coming off a fourth round TKO to reigning WBC flyweight champion Pongsaklek Wonjongkam in a ten round battle last January 26. It was the Filipino’s third succesasive defeat.

Viva Sports/Manila Standard Today learned that Sisnorio fell unconscious while going out for dinner several hours after he was knocked out. Doctors at Bangkok’s Piyamin Hospital said Sisnorio who underwent emergency brain surgery to remove a blood clot died on Saturday night after failing to regain consciousness. He had suffered serious head injuries.

It was clear to most boxing aficionados that Sisnorio fighting the former world champion was a terrible mismatch since aside from a far superior ring record Sasakul had won his last six fights, four by KO or TKO while Sisnorio had won only five of his eleven fights. Ringside reports disclosed that Sasakul nailed Sisnorio with a series of vicious right hooks who went down at 2:35 of the fourth round and was counted out. .

Sasakul is the same fighter who battered Filipino ring idol Manny Pacquiao for six rounds before Pacquiao caught him with a devastating combination to win the title by a sensational eighth round knockout in December 1998..

Games and Amusements Board boxing division chief Dr. Nasser Cruz told Viva Sports/Manila Standard Today he learned Sisnorio had “slipped out of the country without our permission or maybe he was there in Thailand for quite some time.”

Cruz said there was “this unscrupulous matchmaker from Thailand doing this” and the GAB had already informed the WBC Ratings Committee and the Thailand Boxing Commission about fighters who left the Philippines without the necessary clearance to fight.

The Manila Standard Today learned that one of the notorious Thais involved was a certain Panya who is known to most Filipino boxing people and it is suspected he works in connivance with Filipino identified as Bong Obero who was banned by the GAB but reportedly still continues with his illegal activities allegedly in connivance with some GAB officials past and present.

Dr. Cruz said they were trying to contact Sisnorio’s manager Jemmel Contayoso of Cotabato but said “he cannot be reached.”
