Rex Wao Singwancha (7-0,6 KOs) successfully grabbed the WBC ABCO interim 122lb title as he stopped Danilo Gabisay (reportedly 4-1) on Saturday night at La Trinidad Municipal Gym in Benguet, Philippines. The source reported that Wao survived from a knockdown in round one to aggressively attack Gabisay with flurry of strong and heavier punches on the head and body, finally forcing referee Virgilio Garcia to stop the fight at 1:47 of round two.

In other action, ABCO continental lightfly title holder Jay-ar Estremos Singwancha (10-5,4 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over Arjet Caballes in an eight round non-title bout. Remuel Obidos (8-3-1,3KOs) destroyed Jessie Caballes in the opening round. And Roy Velarde won a four round unanimous decision over Keroven Saclit on their debut.
This event was promoted by Brico Santig and Naris Singhawungcha of Highland-Naris Boxing Promotion.
