WBC International LightFlyweight Silver title

     Tibo Monabesa     (Indonesia)  retained his WBC International 108 Lbs Silver belt via a Technical Draw.   Light Flyweight Tibo Monabesa scored a Technical Draw in  round four against Filipino threat Arnold Garde last May 20th  at the Cendrawasih Sports Hall in Northern Jakarta (Indonesia).  The show was promoted by Armin Tan.

The fight was a very close affair in the first round,  with the visitor to show a better condition.  But,  from round two the southpaw champion clearly dominated the bout with his effective counter attack tactics.   Unfortunately, an accidental clash of heads from the challenger caused the champion getting seriously cut on his eyebrow.    So, the ring physician recommended referee Erick Suwarno to terminate the bout at 2:22 of round 4.   Following our rule for championship fight, there was no point deduction and the “Technical Draw” was announced for Monabesa to retain his belt.

Monabesa, 26, has now won 16 of his 17 professional fights.    The only blemish on his record is a technical draw.

Garde, 26, had won 5 of his last 6 fights with the only defeat coming on points against world ranked Randy Petalcorin.

Felice Moncelli (Italy – WBC #38) outpointed Adriano Nicchi to win the vacant Wbc International 154 lbs title.    FELICE MONCELLI wins by UD12 and claims the vacant WBC INTERNATIONAL 154 lbs crown in a very close and tough contest. The contest was virtually decided in the twelfth and last round.   Infact, at the end of the eleventh round the contest was still in balance, with two judges having a point for Moncelli and the third judge a bit too wide with three points for the same fighter.   The last round found the three judges in a  “perfect”  disagreement:  10-9;  9-10;  10-10  for a final score of 115-113 (twice) and 115-114 for Moncelli who becomes (deservedly) the new WBC International Superwelter weight champion.
