Taconing Stays Busy As He Awaits For Another World Title Shot

Jonathan "Lightning" Taconing (25-3-1,21) stays busy as he beat Indonesian journeyman Sylem Sirang (8-13-1) Sunday night at The Flash Grand Ball Room of the Elorde Sports Complex in Paranaque City.

In his first world title shot for WBC world light flyweight title in 2012. Taconing suffered a controversial defeat to Kompayak Porpramook in Thailand. On that fight , Taconing is pummeling Porpramook and is in trouble but the referee stops the fight to check a small cut on Porparmook's left eye which is very questionable. In the fifth round the referee deducted Taconing a point  due to head butt and the fight went to scorecards, two judges gave 50-45, 48-46 for Porpramook and 47-47 a draw. Taconing came back and captured WBC International and OPBF light flyweight titles with eight fight wins in a row to maintain his world ranking. In July 2016 Taconing gets his second world title shot against Mexican Ganigan Lopez in Mexico. The fight went to distance as the champion refused to exchange with heavy handed Filipino. In the end all three judges favored Lopez to retain his WBC light flyweight title by wide margin. Scores were 119-108, 119-108, 115-112.

Taconing's defeats didn't stop him from reaching his dream to be a world champion someday. He regain the WBC International title by stopping Salatiel Amit in 10th round in November 2016. Taconing is currently WBO#2 and WBC#3 in Light flyweight division. WBO world title is currently held by Japanese Kosei Tanaka while WBC title is held by another japanese Ken Shiro.
