By JM Siasat
 
Paranaque City, PHILIPPINES- Jerson Mancio (17-3-3, 8KO) has grabbed the vacant Philippine light flyweight strap by stopping Robel Villegas (9-7, 3KO) in the 5th of their scheduled twelve round bout at the Elorde Sports Complex, Paranaque, Philippines.

Mancio started slow in the opening round while Villegas was the busier fighter, trying to press the action and landing clean shots along the way. Villegas landed a hard counter right hook towards the end of the round that caught the attention of Mancio.

An accidental low blow by Villegas slowed the pace in the second round. Mancio went on to pressure soon as he recovered, both fighters traded punches towards the end of the round.

Mancio got the better of round three. It was a back and forth action until Villegas crushed to the canvass via hard left hook. Mancio finished the round strong as he invested on body punching in an attempt to slow Villegas down.

Mancio’s body punches served him well as he managed to slow Villegas down a bit in round four. Mancio continued working the body but nevertheless Villegas kept fighting back.

Mancio resumed his body punching and started an all out relentless pressure in round five. Villegas eventually gave in, getting knocked down after a series of hard right hands. Villegas managed to get on his feet but only to get pummeled to submission. Referee Ver Abainza was forced to stop the fight at 2:02 after a series of unanswered punches.

Fighting in the co-main event was Jessebelle Pagaduan (5-0, 3KO) and Lady Love Sampiton (0-2). Pagaduan dictated the fight from start to finish and was rewarded of a majority decision nod after 6 rounds of action. The vacant Philippine women minimumweight belt was at stake only for Sampiton after Pagaduan failed to make the 105lbs limit.

There's a slight confusion with last night's Philippine light flyweight championship bout between Jerson Mancio and Robel Villegas. Initial reports said that it was for a vacant belt but later reports says Mancio was defending the crown
