Triple knockdown as Jaro stuns Wonjongkam

Phil Jay 03/03/2012

WBN Pound for pound number four ranked Pongsaklek Wonjongkam suffered only his second loss in sixteen years when Filipino Sonny Boy Jaro stopped the WBC flyweight belt holder in Chonburi, Thaliand.

The 34 year-old seemed to have aged almost overnight as he never got in the fight and was put down in the first, third and sixth rounds before the referee called a halt to the bout with Wonjongkam in no position to continue.

Rizal-based Jaro, 29, who had ten losses on his record in 48 bouts going into the fight, went into the bout an overwhelming underdog but is now a world champion for the first time after two failed attempts previously.
