To kick off the boxing week Channel 7 had a midweek show that perhaps went under-the radar a bit more than many would have liked.
The broadcast oppened with talented youngster Knockout CP Freshmart (4-0, 3) defending his WBC Youth World Minimumweight title by stopping Filipino challenger Bimbo Nacionales (11-8, 2). Knockout started slowly seeing what Nacionales had to offer then really went to work in round 4 as he upped the pressure on his challenger.
As the champion went through the gears he started to make Nacionales more and more uncomfortable and in round 5 Knockout twice dropped the challenger with the referee waving the bout off after the second knockdown.
Knockout's stablemate Petch CP Freshmart (19-0, 13) was also victorious on the card as he claimed the first defense of his WBC Youth Super Flyweight title. Petch had to over come the spirited challenge of Filipino Roman Canto (8-2-2, 3) who was fighting away from hom for the first time in his career.
Petch appeared to be on the verge of a stoppage at several times in the bout but Canto recovered well and went back to work in a genuinely enjoyable and highly active contest.
Note-Boxrec have Petch's opponent down as Renan Trongco, whilst they may be correct the WBC opening scoring cards, written in English, displayed "Roman Canto" several times. So we're unsure.
Note 2-Boxrec have since changed the fighter to Canto, clarifying what we had.
