GENESIS “Azukal” Servania stayed undefeated in 24 fights after annihilating former junior bantamweight world champion Alexander Munoz of Venezuela with a 12th round technical knockout victory on Saturday in Pinoy Pride XXIV held at the Solaire Resort and Casino in Parañaque City.
Servania (24-0 win-loss slate with 10 knockouts) delivered a stunning left hook on Munoz’s chin. The Venezuelan fighter rose up on wobbly legs but referee Danrex Tapdasan immediately halted the bout with still 2:22 left.
“I never expected the Venezuelan champion to fight harder than this. He is also good,” said Servania of Munoz, a former two-time World Boxing Association junior bantamweight titleholder. “It’s up to my promoter if they will put me in a world title bout.”
Munoz dropped to 36-6 win-loss record with 28 knockouts
Servania suffered a cut on his left eye in the sixth round after being hit by Munoz.
But it didn’t stop the Bacolod City fighter as he threw series of punches the following rounds.
ALA President Michael Aldeguer said he wanted to see Servania fight at least one or two more versus former world champions like Fernando Montiel and Vic Darchinyan before meeting a world titleholder.
In the other match, Prince Albert Pagara whipped Indonesian Isack Junior with a devastating first-round knockout (2:41) to improve his record to 19-0 win-loss mark on 13 knockouts.
