In the fourth bout, Ben Manangquil dominated Crison Omayao finally knocking him out in the fifth round. The third fight showcased RV Daniega battering Jerry Pabila and ending the fight in the second round.
The most surprising result was the debut fight of Gabriel Tapales. Instead of sizing up his opponent, Tapales went all in and made a quick knockout of Elizer Ambon seconds after the opening bell.
Lastly in the curtain raiser, Carjun Carcosia showed he has a lot of potential as he halted Rodel Sungit in the fourth round.

SANMAN BOXING SIGNS VINCE PARAS
By: Sanman Boxing
Sanman Promotions has found another gem as it signs in former world title contender and WBO Asia Pacific youth flyweight champion Vince Paras (15-2 KO13). Paras’ only losses were against Hiroto Kyoguchi for the IBF Minimumweight belt and Pinoy veteran contender Jonathan Taconing. Both were close decision losses.
Sanman CEO Jim Claude Manangquil has seen a lot of potential in Paras. “His losses do not mean anything. He was just 19 yrs old and fought elite champions. He learned from those fight and has still a bright futur. He comes to knock people out and fans will definitely love him. He will still train with veteran trainer Bennie De la Peña. He will be a world champion when he reaches his prime”, Manangquil said.
Paras cannot contain his excitement as he joins Sanman. “I am happy with my new management and promoter.. I know they will help me realize my world championship dream.", Paras stated.
Earlier today fight fans had the chance to see former world title challengers clash in Paranque City, in the Philippines. The fighters in question were former 2-time Light Flyweight title challenger Jonathan Taconing (28-3-1, 22) and recent Minimumweight challenger Vince Paras (13-2, 11), with the two men fighting for the WBC International Light Flyweight title, that Taconing was defending.
The fight started competitively but it seemed like Taconing just had that extra little touch of class early on taking the early lead, despite some competitive back and forth from a gutsy Paras. Sadly the younger man just looked a little bit too timid at times, and took punishment from the more savage and aggressive Taconing, who looked to be the one making the fight.
The fight really exploded in round 6, a round of the year contender, as both men unloaded bombs, both were hurt and it was clear that both had let the shackles off looking to the other man out. How neither was dropped was a mystery, and a testament to their toughness, in what was clearly the round of the fight.
After having had a hectic 6th round the pace dropped dramatically in round 7, with Taconing out boxing Paras, something that we would see regular in the final rounds as Taconing just controlled the younger man by boxing and moving well. Paras had moments during these final rounds, but they were few and far between as Taconing eased over the line until the final round.
Despite the brilliant 6th round and some great back and forth Taconing had take a comfortable decision, with scores of 117-111 being turned in by all 3 judges.
It was a win that sets Taconing up for a potential showdown with the winner of the upcoming WBC world title fight between Kenshiro (13-0, 7) [拳四朗] and Milan Melindo (37-3, 13) and perhaps also serves as a reason to give Paras some softer opposition for a fighter or two, as he looks to rebuild from draining back to back defeats.
