It was a good Saturday night across Asia and we'll kick things off Down Under in Melbourne, Australia where there was a superb bill at The Peninsula.
PABA Light Heavyweight Champ Daniel "Porky" Lovett, 17-3 (10), was in action in a non-title affair with former Australian titlist Jamie Guy, 9-9-1 (7) that went the distance.
After ten rounds of combat, Lovett emerged the winner via scores of 100-89, 99-91 and 98-92 to win his third straight contest since losing the IBF Pan Pacific Super Middle crown to Nader Hamdan.
Big punching light welter Lance Gostelow, 16-1 (13), led the way on the undercard, belting out ex-WBC Asian Boxing Council titlist Sataporn Singwancha, 17-6-1 (10), of Thailand, at 2:09 of the second round.
Another Thai import took it on the chin as current Australian Super Middle titlist Les Sherrington, 20-5 (13), crushed Bangkok slugger Plaisakda Singwancha, 35-16 (29), at 1:58 of the first frame of a six round non-title bout.
Australian Light Middle kingpin Frank LoPorto, 9-3-2 (5), rounded out the bill by stopping Indonesia's Hendrik Aritonang, 2-13 (1), in the second.
Saturday also featured a big card at Cebu Coliseum in Cebu City, Philippines, where Ciso Morales, Bert Batawang and Ranee Ganoy all entered the winner's circle. More...
