Filipino boxer defends crown at WBC Silver Championship in Singapore

Filipino boxer Jeson “Dynamite Fists” Umbal defended his ABF super bantamweight title against Tanzanian pugilist Fadhili Majiha in a 10-round bout Singapore on Saturday, 25 March 2017. The match was one of the undercards of the WBC-sanctioned “Battle of Champions: Road to Glory” at the Singapore OCBC Arena. Fighting in front of a pre-dominantly pro-Filipino crowd, Jeson Umbal showed why he is dubbed the Dynamite Fists as he eked out a split-decision against the determined and strong Tanzanian. The main event featured title holder Charles Manyunchi from Zimbabwe against Asia’s rising star Qudratillo ‘The Punisher’ Abduqaxorov of Uzbekistan. Representatives of the Philippine Embassy in Singapore were on hand to congratulate the Filipino boxer. Earlier in the day, Jeson and his coach were warmly received by Philippine Ambassador Antonio A. Morales and representatives of the Filipino community (Filcom) in Singapore during the regular Filcom leaders meeting at the Philippine Embassy who conveyed their moral support to the Filipino fighter.
