Two-time WBC champion Sirimongkol Singwancha (69-2,41KOs) impressively captured the vacant ABCO continental welterweight title as he stopped ABCO #6 welter Dennis Padua (reportedly 9-7-1) on Wednesday at Wangli Ground in Pathumthani, Thailand. The experienced Thai fighter excitingly exchanged punches with the Filipino who prepared well for this significant fight, landing many tough counterpunches to obstruct Sirimongkol’s aggression. However, Sirimongkol changed his tactics from round four, using a body-attack which effectively weakened his opponent. Finally, the bout was terminated when the local hero landed a big bodyshot which viciously hurt his foe, then he displayed a one-side attack to drop the Filipino for a full ten-count at 1:29 of round five.
In other action, former WBO Asia-Pacific 130lb title holder Jesus Singwancha (17-9, 7 KOs) won all 58-56 scorecards over Filipino Mike Tumbaga (reportedly 12-17-2).
