Genesis “Azukal” Servania rocked the Cebu Grand Hotel last night when he sent his Panamanian foe, Rafael Conception, to dreamland in the second round and became the new WBO Intercontinental Super Bantamweight Champion.
The pride of Bohol, Philippines, started the opening round aggressive, pounding Conception with some heavy hooks and uppercuts; but Conception stayed tough and connected his own overhands to the chin of the Filipino.
The second round was more of the same. Both fighters exchanged punches but Servania is getting the best of it. At the 2:40 mark of the second round, Servania caught Conception with a perfectly timed uppercut that put the Panamanian on the canvass out cold.
Servania kept his record unblemished and improved his record to 23 2ins, 0 loss and 9 KO’s, while Conception drops to 18 wins, 7 losses, 1 draw, and 8 KO’s.
In the co-headliner of the night, the former chess player, “King” Arthur Villanueva captured the WBO International Super Flyweight Title by stopping Mexican fighter Edgar “Chololo” Martinez in the very first round.
Aside from winning the belt, “King” Arthur, enhanced his perfect boxing record to 23 wins with 13 KO’s.
