Magsayo puts on a show in Pacquiao-Ugas undercard

Mark Magsayo said that he looked to impress in the undercard of Manny Pacquiao versus Yordenis Ugás. And that’s what he did.

Magsayo scored a 10th round knockout of Julio Ceja to retain the World Boxing Council-Asian Boxing Council featherweight title, Sunday (Manila time) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The stoppage came 50 seconds into the round.

Magsayo was sensational to start the bout, scoring a knockdown on Ceja with a clean left hook.

Ceja was able to beat the count and get even in the fifth round with a body shot.

Ceja tried to push in the sixth round, almost sending Magsayo down. It was the wake-up call the 26-year-old Bohol-native needed.

Though Ceja tried to counter Magsayo’s aggression with body shots, the Filipino kept pushing forward.

Magsayo came in the 10th round with guns ablazing, scoring a couple of shots that sent Ceja down and out.
