Foley Retains Title in Dramatic Style.
WBA Super Lightweight southpaw champ Darragh Foley (Ireland/Australia) beat tough ex WBC Youth World champ Sonny Katiangdagho (Philippines) in dramatic fashion on Saturday 8th April at the beautiful Doltone House in Sylvania Waters in Sydney. A cautious Foley had a slow start and couldn’t find the range and work out his unorthodox opponent. Quietly confident he was waiting for the right time and opening but in the meantime, he was getting further and further behind on points. The 6th round was the telling round where he connected with a couple of vicious straight rights thus sending his opponent sprawling onto the canvas. Credit must go to his cornerman who jumped in straight away to halt any further punishment for his fallen fighter. Promoter: Tony Delvecchio from Bondi Boxing Gym.
