Filipino boxer Johnreil Casimiro lost his WBO Interim Light Flyweight belt to his Mexican nemesis Ramon Garcia Hirales.
One judge scored it 115-113 for Casimero while two judges scored it 115-113 for Garcia. The 20 year old Casimero (14W-1L, 8 KO’s), who fights out of the Omega Boxing Gym of Cebu, suffered his first career loss. He was accompanied by trainers Christopher “Pingping” Tepora and Danny Bactol
The 27 year old Garcia (13W-1L, 8 KO’s) prevailed in a tactical battle of positioning, feinting and counterpunching battle and was the better conditioned fighter in the second half of the fight.
This boxer is young. Single lost should not be a hindrance to him for gaining his Championship Belt.
