Two Filipinos were victorious against previously unbeaten local opponents Saturday in Australia.
Veteran fighter Jonel Alibio (19-18-5, 11 KOs) of Valencia City stopped IBO Oceania lightweight champ Nathan Wright (6-1, 3 KOs) to win the vacant IBO Asia Pacific lightweight title.
Joebert Delos Reyes (14-5-1, 11 KOs) defeated Darragh Foley (5-1, 3 KOs) with split decision over 10 rounds.
Other Asians in the card, Pramool Boonpok (1-16-1) and Mongkolchai Lookmuangkanch (12-4, 7 KOs) were not lucky.
Boonpok lost to Tony Senior (7-0) while Lookmuangkanch (12-4) bowed to reigning PABA super flyweight king TJ Doheny (12-0, 7 KOs).
The show took place at the Club Punchbowl in Punchbowl, New South Wales.
