December 30 , 2014
Silvester Lopez has won the World Boxing Championship international bantamweight title. He defeated Rex Wao in their 12-round contest at the Elorde Sports Center in Manila, Philippines.
Both Lopez and Wao exchanged hard shots in round one. As they were just midway through the round, Wao could not sustain Lopez’s sharp attacks on his face and body. In round 6, Lopez unnerved Wao with left hook to the jaw. Wao was on a fierce attack earlier.
Lopez is an ex-WBC silver super flyweight champion. With 17 knockouts, he bettered his record to 23-9-2. Wao received his career’s first drubbing as his performance declined to 10-1 with 8 knockouts.
