Yordan wins by TKO

By Jeff Pamungkas

Facing difficulties in the first five rounds due to his strategy to answer his opponent’s challenge to fight in the short distance, Daud Yordan could finally performed his best skills and landed his best shots to defeat his opponent Ricky Sismundo (14-4, 5 KOs) by TKO in round ten to retain WBO Oriental featherweight title, Saturday night (8/15) at Twin Plaza Hotels, Jakarta, Indonesia. Sismundo who last month defeated Yordan’s brother, Yohannes Yordan, with a third round TKO, landed some dangerous hooks to the face in rounds four and five, staggering Yordan, currently featherweight WBO #2 and WBA #5. Yordan started coming out strong in round seven and dangerously cornered the Filipino contender, but saved by the bell. Round nine, Sismundo was hurt, and in the last two minutes of the round he was only running to avoid Yordan’s strong body punches. Sismundo then refused to stand out of his stool after the break after round nine, so the referee awarded the TKO victory in round ten to Daud “Cino” Yordan, now 25-0, 19 KOs.

“Yes, I did it on purpose (to fight in short distance in the beginning). I wanted to try my ability and my durability, because so far I only fought quickly,” said Yordan answering the question on his ‘dangerous’ performance in the beginning rounds.

On the undercard, the son of the promoter Daniel Bahari, Daudy Bahari, won by TKO in round eight over Thai’s Somchai Nakbalee in the jr. welterweight WBO Oriental interim title.
