Suico VS. Samejima Video

This video shows Pinoy boxing prospect, Randy Suico retaining his OPBF lightweight title by impressively knocking out tough mandatory challenger Koji Samejima of Japan in the eighth round. The OPBF lightweight championship bout was the main attraction of the “Battle for Supremacy” promoted by Rex “Wakee” Salud in cooperation with MP Promotions of Filipino boxing idol Manny Pacquiao.

Many Philippine boxing analysts say that the pressure is on Suico to perform well after being stopped in his first world title challenge. Well he was able to finish off Samejima impressively and he has power but he has still to improve in terms of speed and movement. The current world lightweight champions are above the level of Samejima so he has to improve if he wants to capture a world crown at the lightweight division. This victory will boost his morale and inspire him to improve so he still has a chance at bringing back a world title to the Philippines.
