In a 10-round main event featherweight bout, Rogelio Jun “Hercules” Doliguez of Malungon, Sarangani, Philippines failed to secure a win in Mexico as he got dominated by former three-time world champion, Fernando “Cochulito” Montiel of Mexico, at the Auditorio Municipal Fausto Gutiérrez Moreno, Tijuana, Mexico, Sunday afternoon.
The 23-year-old Doliguez, who was looking to start his 2015 campaign with a bang after having a rough 2014, was outboxed by Montiel en route to a wide unanimous decision victory for the Mexican. Scores were 99-88 in all three judges’ scorecards.
After dropping a unanimous decision to Gabriel Francisco Pina of Mexico, and a fifth round majority technical decision to Dennis Tubieron of the Philippines last year, this will be Doliguez’s third loss in his last four fights after having a good start by winning 18 of his first 20 fights.
On the other hand, this will be the eighth straight victory for the 36-year-old Montiel after losing a unanimous decision against Victor Terrazas last November 19, 2012 for the vacant WBC Silver super bantamweight title.
With the victory the Sinaloa native, Montiel, who was a former WBO Flyweight, WBO Super Flyweight, and WBO and WBC Bantamweight champion, is looking for another title shot after his victory against the Filipino improves his record to 54-4-2 with 39 KOs. Doliguez drops to 19-3-2 with 14 KOs.
