Yordan seemed to quickly shake his ring rust and applied constant pressure. His intention wasn't just to win, but to win in style with intense pressure and relentless aggression. Pontillas tried to use his legs, avoid a tear up. Unfortunately for the Filipino he was unable to get the respect of Yordan who just walked through everything thrown in his direction and eventually a sickening body shot finished off Pontillas, who ended in agony.
For the Filipino this was just the second time he has been stopped in 27 bouts, and his first stoppage loss since June 2008, when Sonny Gonzalez took him out in 9 rounds. Whilst for Yordan this saw him claiming the interim WBO Asia Pacific Lightweight title
For those wanting to see the bout it can be seen in full below.
