It took only 11 seconds for the newest bare-knuckle sensation Dondon “Rugby Boy” Serrano from Cebu to dismantle veteran mixed martial artist Richard “The Cannibal” Redman of Fist Gym to rule the 170-lb weight class of the URCC 82 Royal Knuckle Fight Night on Tuesday at the Royal Knight Club in A-Venue St., Poblacion, Makati City.
A barrage of lightning punches and telling blows by Serrano right after the opening bell caught Redman off guard and it spelled doom to his overhyped pre-fight challenge to a former amateur boxer-turned knuckle fighter nicknamed “Rugby Boy” in the new combat sport armed with only bare fists.
“Rugby Boy is here…kung sino pa ang maghahamon, call ninyo ako anytime, anywhere!,”said the 31-year-old golden-haired Serrano.
In the undercards, Tirso “The Mechanic” Torres won over Rocky Vergara via majority decision in the 125-lb division, while Edemel Catalan of Catalan Fighting System outpointed Rexelmar Liloc in a 115-pound fight.
In the 145 category, Leonard “Deadshot” Pornia defeated Jeffrey Suble via TKO.
Allan “Manunusok” Wycoco manhandled Stephen Atok to score a second-round, referee-stopped-contest.
John Marvin “Marble” Callueng defeated Jovanie Bualan via submission in a 155-pound tiff, before Mark “Deadshot” Sadang scored a first-round knockout of Rogelio “Thunder Flash” Enumerables.
A second-round stoppage by Marvin Malunes over Wilson “Ongbak” Managuio capped the blockbuster supporting bouts.
After the awarding ceremony of the event witnessed by GAB chairman Atty. Richard Clarin and supported by CrazyWin, Nueve Gaming, Top 1 Play and ALV Events, URCC founder/ chief Alvin Aguilar announced the newly hyped Rugby Boy Serrano vs Manunusok Wycoco to be scheduled next at The Okada Manila.
