Jun bests Baat, defends WBC Asia Continental super bantamweight title; “Molecule from Hell” Orlov wins WBC Asia Continental heavyweight title

By Loren Goodman

In the twelve-round main event in Daying, China, up-and-coming prospect Qiu Xiao Jun (12- 2, 4 KOs) displayed an impressive repertoire of boxing skills to defend his WBC Asia Continental super bantamweight title against tenacious Japan-based Filipino southpaw Jonathan Baat (25-5-3, 12 KOs) on Friday in Daying, China. While Jun sent Baat to the canvas in round three, Baat rallied in the later rounds. Jun emerged victorious by scores of 116-112, 119-111, 116-113.

In the ten-round semifinal for the vacant WBC Asia Continental heavyweight title, Evgeny “Molecule from Hell” Orlov (15-12-1, 11 KOs) stopped former OPBF Heavyweight champion Peter Okello (21-8, 19 KOs) when Okello retired in the corner after round nine.
