ALA Gym’s Rocky “The Road Warrior” Fuentes had another successful Japan trip as he beat Japanese challenger Hirofumi Mukai via unanimous decision in their bout at the Sumiyoshi Ward Center in Osaka.
Fuentes raises his record to 29-6-2 with 17 knockouts and he is now touted to be deserving of a world title shot. Mukai suffered his first loss in 6 fights. The bout was also the 4th successful defense of Fuentes of his OPBF flyweight belt and boxer from Cebu City is now on a 10-bout winning streak.
Here is a look of the last 10 fights:
2. Unanimous Decision over Jemmy Gobel in Cebu City 3-19-2011
4. 8th Rd TKO over Yasuto Aritomi in Nagoya, Japan 9-5-2010 (OPBF defense)
5. 11th Rd TKO over Shigetaka Ikehara in Tokyo Japan 6-5-2010 (OPBF defense)
8. 2nd Rd KO over Allan Ranada in Mandaue City 6-27-2009
Fuentes has been one of the busiest Filipino fighters in recent years and he will be tough customer in a world title fight. Hopefully, the world champions will give him a shot because this ALA boy has what it takes to win outside the country.
