Filipino IBO world champion Michael “Gloves on Fire” Dasmarinas’ non-title bout vs. Ghana’s Manyo “Black Flash” Plange, ended in a draw, with the scorecards showing these numbers - 93-97, 95-95, and 96-94.
Boxing analyst Mike Ochosa shared his thoughts on the match, and says, “Plange was really ready for Michael Dasmarinas. Whatever scouting reports we saw about him, is true. Makamay, masipag,…he punched a lot, so perhaps from the judges’ point of view, it looked like he was more aggressive, and he was the busier fighter. However, if you look at the tapes, Michael was connecting the power shots, but not throwing a lot. While Plange was not connecting, but throwing a lot.”
While Muhamad “The Chosen Wan” Ridhwan, faced his first defeat in his entire professional career, (11-1); with the IBO World Super Bantamweight title going to Namibian boxer Paulus “The Rock” Ambunda, at the end of the evening. Ambunda won by split decision, with the judges scorecard showing - 115-113, 116-111, 112-115.
But Ridhwan assured his fans that he will be back, “I know Paulus is a fighter, I respect him…But I will come back. I always come back.”
While Ringstar Founder & CEO Scott Farrell says, “Muhamad Ridwan showed that he’s ready, he may not have won the decision, but he’s ready and he will be back. One day he will be world champion, mark my words.”
