Napanatili ni WBC No. 14 light flyweight contender Tibo Monabesa ang kanyang WBC International Silver title nang ideklarang technical draw pagkaraan ng 4th round laban kay WBF Asia Pacific titleholder Arnold Garde nitong Mayo 20 sa Cendrawasih Stadium sa West Jakarta, Indonesia.

“The fight was a very close affair in the first round, which the orthodox contender looked little better. But from round two, the southpaw champion clearly dominated from his effective counter attack tactic,” ayon sa ulat ng Fightnews.com.

“Unfortunately, an accidental clash from Filipino’s elbow caused the champion getting a serious cut so the ring physician recommended referee Erick Suwarno to suddenly terminate the bout at 2:22 of round 4,” dagdag sa ulat.

“Following WBC rule for championship fight, if the fight could not continue within four rounds because of an accident, the “Technical Draw” have been declared although the defending champion was ahead on 39-38,39-37 and 40-37 scorecards.”
