Elordes protect home turf via impressive knockouts
September 23 at The Flash Grand Ballroom of the Elorde Sports Complex in Paranaque City, Metro Manila, Philippines, the Elorde brothers came out banging as they respectively discard their opponents with impressive knockouts.
Mig Elorde Easily Defeated his Indonesian Foe via 1st Round K.O.
At 30 years old, Mig " The Boss" Elorde has now compiled a record of 24 wins and 1 loss after easily defeating his Indonesian foe Afrizal Tamboresi (11W- 6L) in round one with a well-timed left hook to the body that crumbled the Indonesian down on the canvas for good. Tamboresi tried to beat the count but the referee knew better and called the fight over in just the very first round to declare Mig Elorde winner by K.O. in the first round.
I luckily timed the punch well - Juan Miguel Elorde
Mig Elorde looks happy with the win and he may be ready for a tougher challenge ahead. Meanwhile, let's check out the fight replay of Mig Elorde and Afrizal Tamboresi.
With an injured right eye, Bai Elorde knocks Indonesian fighter down twice to win via 6 rounds K.O.
Like his brother, Bai Elorde also had an impressive showing as he floored Arief Blader twice in the fight, but unlike his brother, Bai did not get the win easily as he was finding handicap due to an injury that he sustained in his right eye on the early rounds of the fight.
In the first round, while at the corner I sneezed hard then I just suddenly feel the swelling in my righteye. I was having double vision and it was hard. This is the first time that it happened to me. - Bai Elorde
Bai Elorde continued to press the fight and after a number of body punches, the investment suddenly paid off as the Indonesian fighter was knocked out via body shots six rounds. He was able to beat the count the first time but could not get the will to beat the second KO as he was counted out by the referee to officially rule the fight as a KO.
Meanwhile, in the main event, Glenn Sumingit escaped with a technical decision win after an injury that he sustained in the fifth that prompted the referee to put a halt on the fight with doctors advice.
