Omega Boxing’s Tepora bags WBO Oriental crown

Jack Tepora (19-0, 14KO) maintained his impeccable record after sending Indonesian opponent Galih Susanto (12-7-1) to the canvas for good in the fifth round of their scheduled 12-round fight for the vacant WBO Oriental super bantamweight championship.

The Omega Boxing Gym star stepped on the gas early, unloading powerful punches that had cruel intentions to the delight of the boxing fans. Tepora landed a well executed combination in the second round that almost floored the Indonesian journeyman but the latter was able to pull through.

Tepora mixed up his attack in the 3rd with beautiful head and body combination that hurt Susanto several times. With 10 seconds remaining, Tepora unleashed another onslaught but this time that sent his opponent to the mat. The Indosian survived and turned the fight ugly in the fourtth clinching when he was stunned and going for a single-leg takedown at one point.

The finish came in the fifth round after the Filipino knocked his opponent down twice, enough for the referee to step in and save the Indonesian boxer from further punishment.

In the co-featured championship bout, Kenny “Big Heart” Demecillo (12-3-2, 7KO) was able to keep his World Boxing Federation Asia Pacific bantamweight title against Jestoni Autida (9-6).

While the feeling out process lasted for the better part of the first three rounds, the crowd went bananas in the fifth round when both fighters came out swinging. Despite Demecillio landing the more significant strikes, Autida held his own until the round ended.

Autida landed a solid left hook in the sixth round that stunned Demecillio. As Autida zoomed in for the kill, the fight was momentarily stopped to cut the loose tape on one of the gloves of Autida giving Demecillio ample time to shake off some cobwebs. The idle time gave the Omega boxing gym a new lease on life, rallying back to finish the round strong. Demecillio imposed his game and was the aggressor all throughout earning the nod of all three judges (97-93×3)
