Jaro Wins IBF Pan-Pacific Belt, Solmiano is RP Lightweight Champ


PhilBoxing.com


Two-time world title challenger and former RP light-flyweight champ Sonny Boy Jaro became the new IBF Pan Pacific light flyweight titleholder after knocking out deposed champion Arman de la Cruz in the 6th round of the main event of the ?Mandirigmang Pinoy ? Bakbakan sa Eastwood City? (Pinoy Warriors -
Slugfest at Eastwood City?) held last night at Eastwood, Pasig City. The end came when a Jaro combination to both sides of the body dropped de la Cruz for the first time, taking the gas out of the latter that he was unable to beat the count. Prior to the stoppage, the fight was a fought at competitive level with de la Cruz using good ring generalship to elude Jaro?s big shots while countering. Jaro, who reportedly had a hard time making the weight and had to use the sauna to sweat out the excess weight after which he was given dextrose to recover, appeared to be tiring as the rounds progressed even though he was able to land in a few hard punches to the head and body that ultimately took their toll on de la Cruz.

Meanwhile, Jay Solmiano, who like Jaro represents the Elorde Shaw Boxing Stable, became the new RP lightweight champion winning the vacant crown over Chris Alag via a 4th round disqualification due to the latter?s repeated low blows. Solmiano had just started having his momentum when Alag decided to mix it up with the former ? but way off the target. Prior to the stoppage, Alag had already deducted a point for repeated infractions. Referee Silvestre Abainza finally decided to disqualify him when it was obvious that the defiant Alag was deliberately playing it dirty targeting the foul area to avoid getting knocked out.
