Filipino boxers silenced their Mexican foes during the weekend after scoring sensational victories to sweep the Pinoy Pride XV fight card at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu.

Jason Pagara led the Filipino’s demolition job as he successfully avenged his painful defeat last September after scoring a sixth-round TKO win over Rosbel Montoya to grab the World Boxing Organization international light welterweight title.

Pagara, who absorbed a unanimous decision defeat to Montoya in their first bout, fulfilled his promise to go all out as he quickly scored a knockdown in the opening round with his super body punches and counter-punching.

Montoya managed to recover and had some flashes of brilliance, but Pagara was simply too determined and too hungry as he dispatched the Mexican for good in the sixth round of the match.

With the win, Pagara improved to 29-2 with 18KOs, while Montoya dropped to 36-5-1 with 30KOs.

Meanwhile, Genesis Servania also had a dominating victory as he scored a unanimous decision win over Jorge Pazos to win the vacant WBO Asia-Pacific super bantamweight title.

With his solid body shots and stinging hooks, the undefeated Servania (19-0, 6KO’s) floored Pazos in the first round before knocking the Mexican down again in the eighth and 11th round to score a 118-107 win on all judges’ scorecards.

Jimrex Jaca, who is eyeing to make a comeback in the world title scene, also had an impressive night as he walked through with an eighth-round knockout win over Angel Martinez.

Jaca, dubbed as “The Executioner”, sent Martinez down to the canvass in the third and seventh round, but the Mexican managed to recover before Jaca knocked him out for good in the last round of their bout.
