Suico wins OPBF 140lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Filipino Randy Suico (29-5-1, 25 KOs) acquired his third OPBF belt in the 140-pound division—after his reign in the super-feather and light classes—when he registered a TKO victory over Kyungsuk Kwak (8-3, 5 KOs), Korea, at 1:02 of the fifth round in the twelve-round elimination bout on Saturday in Onyang, Korea. Suico once fought in a quest for the WBA lightweight throne, losing to Juan Diaz via ninth round TKO in Las Vegas, and moved up to the super-light category. His shot at the OPBF belt against Jungbum Kim was slated in Cheju during the WBC convention last December, but was unfortunately postponed due to financial problems of the local promotion. Then, Kim decided to renounce his OPBF belt to jump up two classed to the 154-pound division. The OPBF#1 Suico was forced to meet Kim’s replacement Kwak who moved down from the super-welter division. From the outset Suico took the initiative and put on a give-and-take performance with the durable and game Korean. In the fatal fifth, referee Pinit Pradsab, Thailand, declared a halt to Kwak who had absorbed much punishment. Suico became the second Asian that gained three OPBF belts in as many different classes, following Crazy Kim (retired) of Japan (who had once won the 154-pound, 168-pound and 175-pound thrones).
