Posted on March 2, 2014 | 9:27 AM

Pinoy boxer Genesis "Azukal" Servania retained his WBO Intercontinental junior featherweight crown after beating former world champion Alexander "El Explosivo" Munoz at the main event of Pinoy Pride XXIV held March 1 at the Solaire Resort and Casino in Paranaque City.

Pinoy Pride 24 Results: Servania Beats Munoz via 12th Round TKO

Servania scored a knockdown against Munoz on the second round and won most of the early rounds. An accidental head butt in the 8th round created a cut on Servania's left eyebrow which made him difficult to follow-up. However, the Bacolod-born fighter continued on chasing Munoz.

Servania scored another knockdown in the ninth round before finally stopping the Venezuelan boxer in the final round with a big right hand to the jaw. This gave the Pinoy a technical knockout (TKO) win at the 2:22 minute of the 12th round (watch the video of KO moment here).

Genesis "Azukal" Servania improved his record to 24-0, 10 KOs, while Alexander "El Explosivo" Munoz dropped his record down to 36-6, 28 KOs. 

In the undercard bouts, "Prince" Albert Pagara knocked out Indonesian fighter Isack Junior with left hook and a right straight to the body in the first round. The 19-year-old boxer now has an impressive record of 19-0, 12 KOs.

Meanwhile, "King" Arthur Villanueva came out the boxing ring victorious after beating Fernando Aguilar of Mexico. The Filipino fighter won by unanimous decision in their 10-round contest. Villanueva retained his undefeated record (25-0, 14 KOs).

Servania has been honing his craft since his teenage years and has found success in the sport, winning all his bouts since entering the world of boxing.

“I was pushed by my father to get into boxing.” said Servania in an interview. “My siblings were already into boxing, even my sister. He pushed me to hopefully help in the household and to stay away from vices.”

The 22-year-old Pinoy will be coming off a second-round knockout win against Panama’s Rafael Concepcion. Servania will move a step further in his career as he looks to prove his prowess in boxing against a seasoned veteran in Munoz.

“We’ve been watching tapes of our opponents and have been training non-stop,” said Servania when asked if he and his fellow ALA Boxers are ready for their respective bouts. “We’re ready for them.”

Nonito Donaire (32-2, 21 KO) had a passive start going into the rematch with "The Raging Bull" Darchinyan (39-6-1, 28 KO). "He was sluggish, didn't look in top shape, and looked to have some mental doubts about himself throughout the fight," wrote Bad Left Hook in a published review.

Darchinyan was in control in the middle rounds of the fight, and scored a good blow on Donaire's cheek which rattled the latter in the 7th round.

After eight rounds of boxing, Donaire exploded and brought out several combinations before landing the dreaded left hook which sent Darchinyan to his knees. The referee came to a stoppage after Donaire landed several punches afterwards, declaring him as the winner of the 10-round featherweight showdown.

According to reports, Donaire was leading in the scorecards of the two judges, 78-74, 78-74, and 76-76.

Six years ago, Donaire scored an upset after knocking Darchinyan in a flyweight fight. The said win elevated Donaire into a name to watch out in boxing. Watch the highlights of the rematch of Donaire and Darchinyan below.

Posted on April 14, 2013 | 12:19 PM

The highly-anticipated super bantamweight title unification showdown of Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire and Guillermo "El Chacal" Rigondeaux was held on April 13 (April 14 in Manila) at the Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Donaire vs Rigondeaux

Rigondeaux beat the Filipino Flash after 12 rounds of boxing. All three score cards (114-113; 115-112; 116-111) went against Donaire, losing the WBO junior featherweight belt to the WBA champion from Cuba. Donaire's new record is now 31-2, 20 KOs while that of Rigondeaux improved to 12-0, 8 KOs.

Rigondeaux was the more engaging boxer during the first two rounds but Donaire never let his guards own and landed jabs on the Cuban. The 3rd and 4th rounds were dominated by Donaire as he did great works in the body and landed his straight punches.

Rounds 5 and 6 saw Rigondeaux playing a bit dirty by grabbing Donaire's head. "El Chacal" scored a huge left in the head during the sixth round. Rigondeaux kept on running away from Donaire on the 7th and 8th rounds and the crowd started to become frustrated. Donaire was still the aggressor on the next round against the counter puncher rival.

In the 10th round, Donaire landed a left hook which made the Cuban slipped into the canvas. He then knocked Rigondeaux down with a straight right, arousing the crowd once more.

An exchange of big punches and jabs followed in the last two rounds. Rigondeaux poked Donaire in the eye  resulted into a cut during the beginning of the 12th round. Even with Donaire's swelling eyes, Rigondeaux did not impressed more in the last round. However, Rigondeaux came on to be the best at 122 pounds.

Dubbed as "Domination," the Donaire-Rigondeaux battle saw 5 out of 8 knockouts in the undercard bouts. The result of the main event was regarded as controversial since scores were wide despite Donaire scoring a knock down in the 10th round.

Last year, Nonito Donaire did an impressive undefeated (4-0) run beating the likes of Toshiaki Nishioka and Jorge Arce since moving up to 122 pounds. The battle with Rigondeaux was his fourth title defense in an attempt to unify the WBO and WBA super bantamweight world titles. 

Rigondeaux may seem less experienced than Donaire based on pro record but the Cuban amatuer legend is similarly dangerous. In fact, Rigondeaux has had one of the most impressive amateur records in history scoring more than 400 victories. This two-time Olympic gold medalist (2000 and 2004) was the star of the powerhouse Cuban national team for years.
