Filipino lightweight prospect Jason Pagara sent Sapapetch Sor Sakaorat of Thailand to the canvas three times to win by TKO at the Waterfront Hotel & Casino Saturday night. The end came at 2:24 of the second round.
Pagara unleashed a vicious left to the body of Sakaorat that sent the Thai to the canvas for the first time at the one minute mark of the second round. Sakaorat went down for the second time courtesy of a left cross to the jaw by Pagara. Another body shot by Pagara sent Sakaorat to the canvas for the third time as Referee Tony Pesons waived his hand to stop one-sided contest.
The 18-year-old Pagara, a native of Cagayan de Oro City, has now racked 24 wins with only 1 defeat with 13 knockouts and is now looking forward to shift his campaign in the United States courtesy of a Top Rank invitation.
