Rey "BoomBoom" Bautista
Bautista, who failed to snatch the WBO super bantamweight crown in his first attempt from Daniel Ponce de Leon in 2007, came in aggressively as he engaged the undefeated Mexican in a powerful exchange of punches starting in the very first round. The Bohol native threw power shots that sent Mendoza reeling down the canvas twice, leaving the Mexican with a bloody nose at the end of the round.
Bautista dominated the fight from first to fourth round and by Round 5, it was obvious the Mexican was running out of gas, and his corner were seen almost ready to give up.
As Mendoza was troubled by his eye injury, he hit Bautista with low blows in the sixth round as he had difficulty with his vision.
Despite the unintentional low blows, Bautista was able to defend himself, and a power left hook caught and stunned Mendoza, sending him down as referee Atty. Danrex Tapdasan counted him out.
It was Mendoza’s first taste of defeat in his professional boxing career. which is highlighted by a perfect knockout record.
With Bautista’s impressive victory, another shot at a major world title is imminent for the Candijay, Bohol, Philippines native.
