WBF Title Victories For Dela Torre & Moralde In The Philippines


john-vincent-moraldeUndefeated 20-year-old Filipino boxers Harmanito Dela Torre and John Vincent Moralde proved too much for their Indonesian opponents on Saturday, September 13, at the Lagao Gym in General Santos City, Philippines, winning World Boxing Federation (WBF) titles.

On a big show promoted by Sanman Promotions and labelled as “Battle Of The Pentagon”, Dela Torre, going in as the WBF International Super Featherweight Champion, captured the vacant Interim World title by defeating Isack Junior in emphatic fashion.

Dela Torre was on top from the start and put on a world class performance, dominating Isack and landing quick combinations almost at will. In round four Dela Torre connected with hard shots to the head, and then shifted his attack to the body and send Isack down for the full count with a vicious shot.

The victor, 14-0 (9), will now face the winner of a fight later this fall in South Africa for the full WBF World Super Featherweight title. Isack Junior drops to 22-6-2 (8).

At Super Bantamweight, reigning Philippines national champion John Vincent Moralde beat Jason Butar Butar by unanimous decision to lift the vacant WBF International crown.

It was a highly entertaining encounter, with Butar Butar coming forward at all times and Moralde using his superior boxing skills to outbox the visitor. While Moralde won most of the rounds, Butar Butar never stopped trying and did have some success.

Although accurate and fair, the scoring of the judges did not do Butar Butar justice after a spirited and very game effort, but Romy Fordalize and Sabas Ponpon Jr. both had Moralde winning by 99-91, while judge Abdul Marajan saw it a 100-90 shut-out.

Moralde improved his professional record to 11-0 (6), while Butar Butar is now 16-14-1 (12).
