Photos: Fernando Montiel Pounds Padua For Easy KO

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Filipino Jaderes Padua was knocked out in the 3rd round by former three-division world champion Fernando “Cochulito” Montiel in Mexico.


 
Reports from ringside said Montiel who had vowed to retire if he lost to the trash-talking Filipino was never an issue in what was described as a one-sided blowout in which Montiel caught Padua with a vicious right to send him crashing to the canvas.


 
The tough, 34 year old Montiel who lost a close decision in a battle with Victor Terrazas for the  vacant WBC super bantamweight Silver title on November 19, 2011 after which Terrazas went on to win the world title with a split decision win over former two-division champion Cristian Mijares scored his fourth successive win since the loss to Terrazas and improved his record to 50-4-2 with 38 knockouts as he goes after a fourth world title..


 
Montiel lost his WBC/WBO bantamweight titles to Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire who scored a smashing 2nd round TKO at the Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on February 19, 2011.


 
Padua, the current WBC Youth Intercontinental super bantamweight champion who dropped to 8-3-1 with 5  record was coming off a 6th round knockout at the hands of former WBC super  flyweight champion Tomas Rojas last April 13 in a clash for the vacant WBC Latino bantamweight title.


 
 Paderes was ranked No. 15  in the May ratings of the Philipoiune Games and Amusements Board while Montiel was  ranked No. 7 in the world by the WBO and No.11 by the WBC.


 
In a pre-fight buildup to hype the showdown the Mexican promoters referred to Padua as “dangerous” and mentioned the fact that he had trained for one month at the Wild Card Gym of Freddie Roach and claims his dream is to follow in the footsteps of countryman Manny Pacquiao, the eight division world champion.


 
Padua himself  said he had high level sparring partners at the Wild Card Gym and is very well prepared to surprise Montiel. He added, “I will keep learning and rivals such as Montiel are part of my growth  as a boxer. I want to be world champion and this is a good step forward toward making sure it will be a great fight and that Mexicans recognize the worthy winner.”

Nicknamed “Mayon’s Lava” the Albay native spewed forth his own prediction that while Montiel " is a great champion known throughout the world I have no fear to face him, confident in my abilities. I have the confidence to come out with the win and start my way to the title of the world” but it ended with the  hapless Padua down and counted out at 1:12 of the 3rd round.
