ESNETH Domingo and Cris Ganoza fell short in their regional title fights last Saturday, April 13, at the Quibors Boxing Gym in Bacoor, Cavite.
Domingo lost to World Boxing Association (WBA) Asia flyweight champion Alphoe Dagayloan by unanimous decision but his trainer and uncle Michael Domingo felt the scores were way off and that the fight could have gone either way.
“I thought that we won. It was a close fight but the decision was too far apart,” said Domingo. “We’ll just have to charge this to experience.”
The scores were 98-92, 97-93 and 96-92.
Domingo suffered his first career defeat and dropped to 11-1 with six knockouts, while Dagayloan improved to 13-2-5 with five knockouts.
Ganoza’s coach Christopher “Ping-Ping” Tepora cried foul after his ward also lost by unanimous decision to WBA Asia minimumweight king ArAr Andales.
“The judges let us lose. Andales’ punches had no clear blows. Ganoza’s punches had the more telling blows,” said Tepora. “I don’t know what the judges saw.”
All three judges had Andales winning with scores of 99-91, 97-93 and 96-94.
“We want a rematch. The fans watching were also puzzled with the results,” said Tepora.
Ganoza dropped to 17-3 with eight knockouts, while Andales stayed unbeaten with 10-0 with two knockouts. (EKA)
