FUENTES WINS IN WORKMANLIKE FASHION OVER JAPANESE LEE
OPBF Flyweight Champion Rocky “Road Warrior” Fuentes of the Philippines used his experience and found his range early against Myung-Ho Lee and carved out a hard earned 12 round unanimous decision victory over his Japanese opponent in front of a sold out crowd at the Waterfront Cebu Hotel and Casino in Cebu, Philippines.
Fuentes used his jab in setting up his opponent and landed his favorite left hook and overhand right. Sensing he was being left behind in the scorecards Lee with the help of his Japanese supporters who came straight from Japan to cheer him on pushed harder but the experience of Fuentes kept the Japanese from being effective against the Filipino.
The Japanese Lee’s height and reach advantage was of no effect as Fuentes kept on pressuring the back-tracking Lee and continued in workmanlike fashion winning via unanimous decision. Judges scores were 117-111, 117-112, 116-112.
