Ifugao pride Carl Jammes Martin hit the canvas early, his first in 19 fights but still maintained his steam, and scored an 11th round stoppage of the Earthquake Ronnie Baldonado at the Elorde Sports Complex in Paranaque last Saturday to retain his Philippine super bantamweight belt and added the World Boxing Association – Asia title with it.
Martin survived the second round knockdown then maintained his composure to score the 11th round win over Baldonado who was unable to return the Hingyon, Ifugao native’s onslaught in the later round.

With Baldonado unable to return the punches, referee Nowell Haduca stopped the fight with 2:02 left in the 11th and registered his 16 knockout win in 19 fights.

Baldonado, who had back to back loses, connected with a heft counter right hook in the 2:42 mark of the second round to floor the Philippine champion.

But it was sort of a wake-up call for Martin as he stepped on the gas and breeze through the 10th round where he dominated Baldonado including a ninth round where he thought that he have already won.

In his post, Martin described the second round knockdown as: “Falling down but the important thing is to get up and finish the fight.”

With the win, Martin is expected to fight internationally with Probellum Promotions signing him.

Probellum in a post said “Confirmed Carl Jammes Martin is the newest Filipino Fighter to be signed by Probellum Promotions.”
