Montiel, who lost his WBC and WBO bantamweight title to Nonito Donaire Jr. in 2011 and is now trying to rejuvenate his ring careerat 34, put away the 22-year-old Padua one minute and 12 seconds into the third of their 12-round bout at Hotel Azul Ixtapa in Ixtapa Zihuantanejo, according to a report on boxing portal boxrec.com.

Another Filipino, Weng Haya, was knocked out by Mexican Miguel Berchelt in 2:57 of the second round of their super featherweight tiff in Yucatan, also Saturday.

It was Padua’s second straight defeat via stoppage. The fighter from Albay also took a TKO loss to Roma Rojas, another Mexican, in the second round last April.

Montiel improved his record to 50-4-2 with 38 KOs. Padua fell to 8-3-1 (5KOs).

Haya, the 24-year-old from Cebu, is now 17-6 (9 KOs).  Marc Anthony Reyes

    I watched the fight just for curiosity because I don’t like boxing as a sport. What in the world are two Filipino clowns doing in Mexico? They are an embarrassment especially Padua who clowned with a very seasoned fighter like Montiel. It is more like mafia in boxing with a kitten fighting a tiger in the cage. The professional boxing authorities of the country should check if the fighters are ready to fight abroad dahil baka matuluyan sila at di na makagising. Padua fought to dive and sleep in the fight. Kaunting rounds lang, pa clown ang kilos na nakakasuka at rarapiduhin nang suntok, dive at di na babangon sa pag kakahiga. Professional boxers this Filipinos? No, they are actually more of a stuntmen na mag papabugbog.
