Mark Magsayo vs. Daniel Diaz
|Mark Magsayo||Winner – KO|
With his brilliant performance against his opponent Daniel “El General” Diaz of Nicaragua, young Filipino boxer Mark “Magnifico” Magsayo remains the champion for the WBO International Featherweight title. Magsayo is under the ALA Boxing promotion and ended the bout in just the 1st round.
The recent Pinoy Pride 41: New Generation Warriors held at the IEC Convention Center in Mabolo City is a clear success. Majority of the Filipino boxers won their bouts, especially the reigning WBO Featherweight champion Mark “Magnifico” Magsayo. He defeated his Nicaraguan opponent within the 1st round of their bout and remains the title holder.
He was able to drop Diaz thrice in the opening round and his final drop in the canvas made the referee stop the fight with almost 1:45 remaining.
With his victory, “Magnifico” now improved his record to 17-0 in his professional boxing career. At his young age at 22-year-old, he has a better future to become the next Manny Pcquiao if he continues to fight well.
