Davao del Norte – Charly Suarez proved that he got what it takes to be a champion when he destroyed Justin Cabarles easily in the 2nd round to win the Mindanao Professional Boxing Association (MinProba) lightweight title last Tuesday night at Dujali Gym at the Braulio E. Dujali, Davao del Norte.
Suarez, 30, quickly started with his jabs in the first round. Suarez showed more quickness as he connected body shots and head blows to stop Cabarles in 1:42 in the 2nd round.
Cabarles tried to fight back but Suarlez proved too much for him by handing him down the canvas.
It was the second win for Suarez and the first in the 8-rounder while the first setback suffered by the 19-year Cabarles after four straight wins.
Suarez still needs one more 8-rounder before he will fight for a 10-rounder and a possible championship.
“Maraming salamat una sa lahat sa Panginoon Diyos,” said Suarez.
“Sa protection ko sa laban kanina at saka kay Engr. Jilson Basang,” he added.
Basang is the boxing promoter of this event co-presented by the LGU of Braulio E. Dujali headed by Mayor Leah Marie Moral-Romano.
Meanwhile, Nurshadhida Roselie of Singapore landed more jabs to beat Kim Actub of Iligan to win via a unanimous decision the MinProba women’s super bantamweight title.
Roselie dubbed as “The Sniper” had more telling blows while Actub only got short punches. Roselie improved her record to 12 wins against two losses while Actub drop to 7-10-1.
