Ranee Ganoy Makes Guillermo Mosquera Fold in Two

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

Former World Boxing Foundation and WBC International champion Guillermo Mosquera quit after two rounds against Sydney-based Filipino Ranee "KO Kid" Ganoy at the Olympic Park Sports Center in New South Wales, Australia on Sunday.

Mosquera was forced to retire at the end of the second round due to a left shoulder injury in the rematch with Ganoy who won by a 4th round knockout in their first clash on October 9, 2009.

Ganoy, the former IBF Pan Pacific lightweight champion and the World Boxing Foundation  Asia Pacific light welterweight champion was leading on the scorecard of judge Gary Dean 20-18 at the time of the stoppage while the two other judges Les Fear and Kevin Hogan had it even at 19-19.

It was the 30 year old Ganoy’s sixth straight stoppage win since he lost by a 4th round TKO to Fernando Angulo in an IBF eliminator for the No. 2 spot on December 5, 2008 in Gauteng, South Africa.

With the win Ganoy who is originally from South Cotabato improved to 31-11-2 with 27 knockouts while the ageing 46 year old Mosquera who is from Colombia but now fights out of New Zealand dropped to 41-10-3 with 20 knockouts.

Ganoy was coming off a 2nd round knockout of tough Thai fighter Decha Bankluaygym (Kokiet Gym) last April 8 while it was Mosquera’s second successive defeat at the hands of Ganoy whose punching power and knockout record earned him the title of “KO Kid” in Australia.

Ranee Ganoy is the only Filipino fighters that is doing good in Australia. His record of 11 lost is a farce due mostly of hometown decisions. I've watched many of those fights which he should have won. Remember he ko'ed…

LMAO,even with that win he still has the worst record of the two.....

This seemed like a waste of time fight. Ganoy was fighting a 46-year-old who he KO'd a year ago. What, they thought Mosquera was going to improve with age?

Ganoy is one of those no account fighters that can stop a lot of good fighters on the night , good honest journeyman .
