Demecillo Wins Vacant Title In Cebu

A busy weekend of championship boxing kicked off with two fights on Friday night (December 2), taking place in Cebu City, Philippines and Cairo, Egypt respectively. Both match-ups saw local favorites emerge victorious from entertaining bouts.


At the Mandaue City Sports & Cultural Complex in Cebu, reigning WBF Asia Pacific champion Kenny “Big Heart” Demecillo won the vacant WBF Intercontinental Bantamweight title with a unanimous decision over fellow countryman Jestoni Autida.


Judges Teddy Alivio, Edgar Olalo and Arnie Najera all scored the fight, promoted by Omega Promotions, 97-93 in favor of Demecillo, who improved his record to 12-3-2 (7), while Autida drops to 9-6 (4). Referee in charge of the action was Tony Pesons.


In Cairo, at the Greek Club, Heliopolis, Andre “King Cheetah” Valavanis engaged in a real shoot-out with Tanzanian co-challenger Maono Ally before winning the vacant WBF International Super Welterweight title by second round technical knockout as a result of well-placed body-shots.


Hard-punching Valavanis, who already holds the WBF All Africa title at Welterweight, takes his unblemished ledger to 7-0 (6), and sends Ally back to Tanzania at 5-2 (2). Billed as “Big City Dreams”, the fight headlined a show promoted by L.B. Sports Promotions in association with Fitbox.
