Magramo brothers dismantle rivals


FORMER world title challenger Giemel Magramo and younger brother Arvin dismantled their respective foes at the resumption of Johnny Elorde’s Boksing Kontra sa Droga held over the weekend in a bubble setup at the Elorde Sports Center in Parañaque City.

The 27-year-old Giemel beat Jay-R Raquinel via unanimous decision to take home the vacant Oriental Pacific Boxing Federation flyweight belt in the main event, while the 24-year-old Arvin knocked out Jerry Francisco in the second round for the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) oriental light flyweight belt.

Giemel improved his win-loss record to 25-2 with 21 knockouts as he slowly recovers from a forgettable world title bout last November in Japan where he was knocked out by Japanese Junto Nakatani. Arvin holds a 13-1-1 record with nine knockouts.

Juan Miguel Elorde, also a former world title challenger, won by unanimous decision over Aroel Romasasa to improve to 29-2 record with 15 knockouts.

It was Elorde’s first fight since losing to WBO super bantamweight champion Emanuel Navarrete via a fourth-round technical knockout last September 14, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
