Servania's KO Win a Prelude To Top Rank Debut in Macau

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Sweet-punching, 21-year-old super bantamweight Genesis “Azukal’ Servania abandoned his usual patient style and went after his opponent, Indonesia’s tough Isack Junior with both fists blazing to score a 3rd round knockout at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu on Saturday.

Servania landed some vicious combinations from the opening bell as he rained punches on the Indonesian. However, he was cautioned for a low blow in round two that dropped Isack who was given time to recover by referee Ben Necessario.

That was the only respite for the hapless Indonesian as Servania ripped into him with devastating punches to the body that ended with Isack crumbling to the canvas to be counted out at 2:15 of the third round.

The fight was a fitting tune-up for the undefeated Servania who improved to 20-0 with 8 knockouts and will next face Japan’s Konosuke Tomiyama in an eight round bout at the Venetian in Macau on July 27.

The 30 year old Tomiyama hjas a record of 23-5-1 with 8 knockouts and is coming off an eight round unanimous decision with over Takuya Miyamori last March 8.  

Jimrex “The Executioner” Jaca survived a knockdown in the dying seconds of the twelfth round and final round to hammer out a comfortable unanimous decision to win the vacant WBO Oriental light welterweight title over Mexico’s game Jose Emilio Perea.

In a slambang battle Jaca’s southpaw style appeared to confuse Perea in the early going as he buckled the Mexican’s knees in the third round with a cracking left but Perea fought back in the fifth and caught Jaca with a big right that threw him backwards.

A head-butt by Jaca in round 9 saw referee Danrex Tapdasan correctly deduct a point from the Filipino veteran before the two exchanged huge left hands which enabled Perea who finished with a one-two combination to steal the round.

Jaca had his best round in the eleventh when he staggered Perea with a solid combination and drove him across the ring with another explosive left-right combo to the body.

The final saw Perea catch Jaca with a big left hand as Jaca was off balance as he was moving backwards to drop the southpaw but it turned out to be too little, too late as all three judges had Jaca the winner. Samson Libres scored it 116-110, Edward Ligas 115-112 and Teddy Alivio 115-112.
