Milan Melindo fought hard despite bleeding from above both his eyes due to accidental head clashes to suffer only his 3rd loss of his boxing career via 12 hard-fought bloody rounds to Ryoichi Taguchi who unified the IBF and WBA light flyweight title belts via a unanimous decision win at the Ota-City General Gymnasium in Tokyo, Japan on New Year’s Eve.

At the end of the fight, all judges had Taguchi the winner with two having identical scores of 117-111 while the 3rd had Taguchi also winning 116-112. Despite the loss, it was a good year for Melindo. LINK
