Jeo Santisima puts up valiant stand, still falls to Navarette

Filipino prospect Jeo Santisima was on the receiving end of a clinic at the hands of WBO World Junior Featherweight Champion Emanuel Navarrete, suffering an 11th round stoppage loss, Sunday morning (Manila time) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Entering the bout as a 50-1 underdog, Santisima — a native of Arory, Masbate — was tentative against Navarrette. His moments came during the fourth round, where he staggered the Mexican with a huge right; and the fifth round that saw Navarrete doze off.

Outside of those two rounds, Navarrete dissected the fighter out of ALA Promotions.

Many times in the bout, Navarrete had Santisima in trouble but in the 11th round, he was able to corner the Filipino that resulted to a stoppage.

“I hit him weirdly with my right hand. [It] Did hurt my thumb, but I had to plow through it and get the victory,” Navarrete said after the bout.

Navarrete, who is looking to go up a division, rose to 31-1 with 27 knockouts. On the other hand, Santisima fell to 19-3.
