Loss puts Mi­lan’s fu­ture in jeop­ardy

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Top Sports -

MI­LAN MELINDO failed to cap­i­tal­ize on his ex­pe­ri­ence after World Box­ing Coun­cil (WBC) light fly­weight king Ken Shiro out­classed him with his speed and quick­ness, and stopped him in the sev­enth round last Sun­day night at the Yoko­hama Arena in Yoko­hama, Ja­pan.

Shiro landed a straight right to the head of Melindo that opened up a huge gash above his left eye­brow. Ref­eree Lau­rence Cole stopped the fight in the 2:47 mark of the sev­enth on the rec­om­men­da­tion of the ring physi­cian.
