‘Filipino Phenom’ Regie Suganob scores dominant win vs Venezuelan fighter in Bohol

Regie “The Filipino Phenom” Suganob gave his veteran opponent a neat lesson on his way to securing a dominant win in the main event of “Kumong Bol-anon XII” on Saturday night, Nov. 4, at the packed Bohol Wisdom School Gymnasium.

Regie “The Filipino Phenom” Suganob wins via unanimous decision over Ronald Chacon of Venezuela.

Suganob outclassed Venezuelan fighter Ronald Chacon, scoring a unanimous decision win that netted him the WBO Global junior flyweight title.

Two judges, Edward Ligas and Martino Redona, scored the bout at 119-108, while the third judge, Neil Papas, had it 120-107, with all scores favoring the PMI Bohol Boxing Stable stalwart.

It was Suganob’s first fight since losing in a world title fight against Sivenathi Nontshinga in South Africa last July 2.

Suganob improved to 14 wins and 1 loss including 4 knockouts.

Suganob took control of the fight from the get go and highlighted his masterful performance with a knockdown in the fourth round. Suganob brought Chacon down to his knees with a right hook but the visiting fighter managed to survive the knockdown.

Suganob was the busy fighter since then, peppering Chacon with a flurry of body shots.

A clash of heads in the middle round resulted in a cut above Suganob’s left eye.

The cut hardly affected the 26-year-old fighter from Dauis, Bohol as he kept his foot on the gas pedal to complete the convincing win.

In the co-main feature, Cebuano boxer Christian Balunan copped the WBO Asia-Pacific miniflyweight belt by scoring a third-round knockout win over Thailand’s Adetip Maungcharoen.

Balunan of Consolacion, Cebu sealed the emphatic win with a right straight with only 43 seconds left in the third round.

Balunan improved to 9W-0L, 5KOs, while Maungcharoen dropped to 5W-1L, 3KOs.
