Unbeaten Igorot boxer KOs foe in ALA–Cobra boxing co–event
Harley F. Palangchao

Igorot boxer Rex Wa-o remains unbeaten in his eight professional fights with an impressive sixth round knockout on Gerry Pateno of Malabon at the Peoples Park in Baguio on Sunday.

Wa-o, the current interim World Boxing Council Asian Boxing Council super bantamweight champion, was too much for his opponent in the co-main event of the ALA Promotions-Cobra boxing as part of the 19th Panagbenga Festival.

The pride of Tadian, Mountain Province proved anew his potential for a world title by connecting a powerful shot to the body that sent Pateno to the canvass with two minutes remaining in the sixth round.

The 24-year-old Igorot boxer last saw action inside the ring in May 2013 where he unleashed powerful combinations to knock out Danilo Gabisa in the second round of their 10-round fight.

With the latest win, Wa-o improved his unbeaten record while Pateno suffered his sixth loss in his 12 professional fights.

Wa-o was conferred the Boxer of the Year award by the Kafagway Sports Achievers Awards, which recognized outstanding Cordillera athletes who gave honor and pride for the region and the country in 2013.

La Trinidad-based Highland Boxing Gym standout Randy Megrino, meanwhile, suffered a sixth round stoppage by Christian Abila who connected a powerful shot on his body.

At 27, Migreno now has 44 professional fights with 20 wins, 21 losses, and three draws while the younger Abila, 25, improved to 11 wins, 12 losses, and two draws.

Local pug Stephen Gelawa also stood victorious when he retired Dennis Padua in the fourth round of their eight round welterweight match.
