Earlier today the hugely popular Filipino banger Rey "Boom Boom" Bautista (35-3, 25) secured a massively important win as he over-came Mexico's Sergio Villanueva (26-4-2, 13) via a unanimous decision.
Bautista, who was returning to the ring for the first time since his upset loss, in April 2013, to Jose Ramirez was in dire need of a victory having gone more than 18 months without adding a victory to his record. Thankfully however he managed to show his skills to over come Villanueva.
Bautista's victory came in 1 of 3 "Filipino Vs Mexico" bouts at the SM Mall of Asia earlier today and whilst his performance wasn't the most impressive it'll have been a huge relief for him to just get back to winning ways after so long out of the ring and so long without a win.
We're hoping to see "Boom Boom" return sooner rather than later and hopefully this victory will reinvigorate his love of boxing which, from what we've heard, had dissipated in recent years.
