Magsayo Loses by Points to Figueroa (Fans Comments/Reactions Here)


PhilBoxing.com




Filipino Mark "Magnifico" Magsayo and Mexican-American Brandon Figueroa battled a good action fight with the Mexican-American "Heartbreaker" prevailing by points over the popular 27-year-old Boholano born in Tagbilaran.

Scores were unanimous: 117-109 (twice), plus a wide 118-108, all in favor of Figueroa (24-1-1, 18 KO's).

Notably, referee Thomas Taylor had deducted 2 points from the Pinoy, once in round 8, and then again in round 11, which might have been a bit excessive.

Those deductions contributed to tallies to become wider in favor of the taller Figueroa, 26, who becomes the new WBC featherweight interim champion.

Figueroa - who scores his second win after a setback to Stephen Fulton - might most likely go on to challenge fellow Mexican Rey Vargas (36-1, 22 KO's), who was in attendance, for the WBC Regular Featherweight world title.

Magsayo (24-2, 16 KO's), meanwhile, loses his second title fight in a row. The former ALA fighter, now a protege of Manny Pacquiao and Sean Gibbons, might now want to rest, re-group, re-focus and get back unto the horse.

The exciting Figueroa vs Magsayo 12-rounder clash was a promotion of PBC and TGB at the Toyota Center in Ontario, California, live on Showtime.

Interestinly, immediately after the action was over, fans from all over boxing-loving Pinoyland went to social media to express their opinions on what they saw.

Here is copy and paste of some of the first comments in:

Talo pero bugbog kalaban.. 🤣💪💪 kulang lang sa hangin..

- Sige pang gunit oi way hangin resulta cge ug pisbuk live🤣🤣🤣

- Lopsided desicion, those 2 point deduct too harsh, I thought the fight was a lot closer.

- Perting nipisa naman kaayo sa nawong ni magsayo oy puros bukog ny imong makita, hinay na kaayo nag punching power...
Kana gong ga reduce pa sya 2 hours ayha nakuha timbang, paila nga angay na unta na sya mosakag 130 lbs
Ang eksena anang awaya duplicate na sa away ni ancajas vs martinez 1& 2 nga bisan gapuga na ayo si ancajas pugos gihapog away imbes mosaka na sa bantamweight

- magsayo napagod ayaw lumaban ng harapan eh kaya nman sana ..takot lng.halatang talo si magsayo sa advice ng corner man..wlang change of style.

- magsayo napagod ayaw lumaban ng harapan eh kaya nman sana ..takot lng.halatang talo si magsayo sa advice ng corner man..wlang change of style.

- Ingnan bitaw ug saka nag 130 lbs dele gyud patoo ky adto maminaw anang Sean Gibbons nga dele mana pinoy, ang tambag ananang Gibbons para inotel

suma gud abi sikat na kaayo si casimero iya dayong gi byaan ang contrata para masuko si casimero unya mohawa

- Sige yakap pa.. Giniginaw yata.. Haba ng reach lalapit pa..ayan talo tuloy.

- Stamina,Ganda ng footwork ni magsayo,Yung yakap lng dumali,,,deduction

- Magsayo is still a very popular boxer, with a good future ahead!

- Ang layo Ng score..talo....2 beses pa na bawasan Ng score.

- Laglag n nman Ang pinoy

- Wag gayahin c mayweather

- Talo talaga e volume puncher kalaban niya kahit anong tulak niya si Figuero ay hindi niya maitulak sinusubukan niya malakas talaga para bang punong braso na napanatili gitna malakas si Figueroa at volume puncher samantalang si magsayo una ulo at nag cover walang swerte talaga pag kasama mo si SG.

- Uli nalang sa tanum kamuti

- casimero pa yan tanggal n ulo

- minimum weight lang


And what is your opinion? Should "Magnifico," who is still a super popular fighter, stay at 126, or should he try it at 130? What should he do next?
