Last year it was a WBO world title bout between Merlito Sabillo, the defending champion, and Carlos Buitrago that arguably stole the headlines for the division. It wasn't a FOTY contender but it was still a very good bout and thoroughly entertaining through out with both men needing to show their metal in the contest.
The fight really put Buitrago, the challenger from Nicaragua, on the boxing map and we will see him again return Asia in just a few weeks when he battles unbeaten Thai Knockout CP Freshmart. We know Knockout's team will be studying this fight very carefully.
