Sabillo grabs interim crown

By Ronnie Nathanielsz | Mar. 11, 2013 at 12:01am
UNDEFEATED ALA Gym fighter Merlito Sabillo scored a sensational eighth-round technical knockout over No.1-ranked Colombian Luis De La Rosa to win the World Boxing Organization minimum weight interim title at the Coliseo Mario De Leon Cerete in Cordoba, Colombia on Sunday (Manila time).

In an action-packed battle from the opening bell, Sabillo went after De La Rosa and opened up a cut in the first round.

But the Colombian ripped into Sabillo with a series of big shots that rocked the courageous Filipino, who fought back tenaciously.

The fight turned in favor of Sabillo in the eighth round, when he dropped De La Rosa with a cracking right and although the Colombian beat the count, he was in deep trouble.

Sabillo didn’t waste time and went after De La Rosa and dropped him for a second time with a vicious left straight and although the Colombian beat the count for the second time, he looked groggy and in no position to continue, forcing the referee to call a halt at 2:58 of the round.

With the win, Sabillo who used to earn money in bare-knuckled street fights on which people bet, improved to 21-0 with 11 knockouts.

Boxing writer Lee Bates, who watched the fight, wrote in a text message to ALA Promotions patron Tony Aldeguer, “Congratulations for a job well done. Excellent win by Sabillo. They gave him a standing ovation in Colombia and want him back in July to fight again.”

Bates noted that Sabillo was “really well prepared and impressed many, including me by winning by TKO.”
