Chris Retains WBA Belt with TKO
Sunday, 27 January 2008
World Boxing Association featherweight champion Chris “the Dragon” John successfully defended his belt for the ninth time with a technical knockout of Roinet Caballero of Panama on Saturday at Bung Karno Indoor Stadium in Senayan, Central Jakarta.
Caballero’s ring threw in the towel before the start of the eighth round, signalling that their fighter was unable to continue.
Chris dominated the Panamanian from the first round, with a combination of powerful punches and solid defence.
In the third round, Chris had several chances to floor the 24-year-old Caballero, connecting with hooks and upper cuts to the jaw of the challenger, who fired very little in reply.
Chris kept up the pressure and in the sixth round unleashed a flurry of punches to put the challenger down.
Caballero tried to fight back in the seventh round, but Chris’ defence was simply too solid. The Panamanian was unable to continue the bout, which was scheduled for 12 rounds.
With the victory, Chris stretched his record to 47 wins, no defeats and one draw, with 21 KOs and one TKO.
Chris received Rp2 billion (US$215,000) for the fight, while Caballero earned Rp650 million.
On the undercard, lightweight Alex Bajawa of Indonesia was knocked out by Saddam Kietyongyuth of Thailand in the fifth round. Another Indonesian boxer, Andreas Seran, defeated Sam Setu of Samoa by KO in the first round of their scheduled four-round fight. (JP/dre/trw)
