With the success of two Highland Boxing Promotions fighters Sunday at the Elorde Sports Center in Sucat, Paranaque, the top man of the La Trinidad boxing stable, Brico Santig hopes that another of his ward will make good this coming Sunday also at the same gym. MJ Oduna made good last Sudnay scoring a first round knockout in the six round undercard of the World Boxing Organization – Oriental light flyweight championship match between Arvin Magramo of the Elorde gym and Jonathan Refugio of Wowie Boxing Stable of Cagayan de Oro.

Oduna defeated Orlandino Sinaloba right after a debutant Vincent Jorda made short works of the more seasoned Rosendo Autida in his first professional fight. It was a Jorda show in his short time in the ring knocking down his opponent barely a minute in the fight. Another flurry of unanswered shots a minute later, saw the referee stopping the fight giving the one time vegetable porter, during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, his first victory.

It was a different story for Oduna, who came back after more than two years of absence from the ring, as Sinaloba was the aggressor in the early goings. But it was Oduna who had him floored barely a minute in the match with a solid right. A body shot on Sinaloba’s left side saw him on his face on the floor writhing in pain as the referee counted him out. It was the first fight of Oduna in nearly three years. He last saw action in November 29, 2019 in a unanimous win over Michael Escobia.

With the win, Oduna improved to 5-1-2 (win-loss-draw). This as Magramo, 14-1-1 record, retained his belt in his first title defense by beating Refugia. He took the title last June 8 in a majority draw win over Ronald Alapormina. The wins also serve as an appetizer to the Charly Suarez, the current World Boxing Association – Asia super featherweight champion versus Carlo Magali fight next Sunday, October 23, also at the said venue. Suarez is holder of three SouthEast Asian Games gold medals and a bronze medal, as well as silver medal in the Asian Games (2014). Suarez is undefeated in 12 professional fights with his last fight last August 8 against Mark John Yap winning via unanimous decision. Magali, meanwhile boasts of a 25-13-3 record and whose last fight was in December 21, 2019 against Al Toyogon or nearly three years of inactivity.

He won via split decision in said fight. He was supposed to fight in Johannesberg, South Africa last August but the fight was cancelled. Pigeon Lobien LA TRINIDAD PRIDE. MJ Oduna (right) and Vincent Jorda needed just one round to win their fights last October 16, in Sucat, Paranaque. Jorda floored Rosendo Autida barely a minute in the first round, then a flurry of unanswered punches barely a minute later forced the referee to stop the match in favor of the one-time vegetable porter. Oduna, on the other hand, knocked down his opponent, Orlandino Sinaloba in the early going. Late in the round, Oduna landed a solid punch on the body of the latter that forced the referee to stop the match after counting out Sinaloba.
