NANAIG ang lakas at diskarte ni Filipino lightweight slugger Romero Duno matapos talunin sa 8-round unanimous decision ang beteranong Mexican na si dating world rated Juan Pablo Sanchez nitong Sabado (Linggo sa Manila) sa The Forum sa Inglewood, California.
“It was Duno pressing the action from the opening bell as Sanchez poked with the jab, on his toes Sanchez kept away as Duno attacked. In round four Duno connected Sanchez with a hard right hand as he backed the Mexican to the ropes,” ayon sa ulat ng Fightnews.com.
“Sanchez was cut one the left eye in the fifth as blood trickled Duno went forward landing power shots. The Filipino continued to work Sanchez stalking and landing heavy shots. In the seventh round Duno boxed and moved as Sanchez pressed swinging wildly,” dagdag sa ulat. “Keeping it conservative in the eighth and final round Duno kept his distance boxing away as Sanchez obviously behind searched for the knockout.”
Nagwagi si Duno sa iskor ng tatlong hurado na pawang 78-74 para mapaganda ang kanyang kartada sa 15-1, tampok ang 13 knockouts at umaasang makapapasok na sa world rankings. – Gilbert Espena
