The new! and the youngest Flyweight Champion in Asia! CJ “Golden Boy” De Tomas!!
All the pain and hardworks have finally paid off for the 19yr old CJ De Tomas who convincingly claimed the URCC Flyweight Belt.
The icing on the cake was the fact that he avenged his father’s lost to the same opponent his father fought some years ago.
It has been a showcase of ground fighting between CJ De Tomas and Hideo Morikawa.
CJ De Tomas is known for being a well rounded fighter or i must say one of the few complete pinoy fighters. In this fight he showcased his wrestling and Jiu-Jitsu skills as he was able to slam Morikawa and most of all defend the infamous leg lock!
In this video CJ mentioned that he was surprised with his cardio and with his Family around especially his dad he didn’t feel tired every round which he said is necessary because fighting Morikawa is like fighting a zombie, he recovers really fast so you really gonna have to take it easy and maintain the energy level. The Champ also thank his teammate who’s been very instrumental to successful leg lock defense.
Coming into the fight the BEEF was on between Alvin “Sindikato” Ramirez and Carlo “Samurai” Laurel.
As expected Carlo Laurel of “Ronin Ju-Jitsu” tried to end the fight by away submission. There were many attempts
and scrambling all throughout the heated match up.
Carlo ended the first round in advantageous position wherein he had an opportunity to execute kneebar or hill hook but he ran out of time.
“Sindikato” Ramirez came in prepared against the “Samurai” Laurel. As a fighter from Yaw-Yan Buhawi Ramirez is known for striking but in this fight he has shown that he can absolutely do well on the ground too.
Ramirez unloaded several punches and kicks but i’m not sure which of those caused the bad cut but I thought the roundhouse kick contributed to the damage.
The heated match up ended in the 3rd round by a doctor’s stoppage; TKO victory in favor of Alvin Ramirez.
