Blow-by-Blow: John Jimenez stays unbeaten, tops Iloilo slugfest
PASSI, Iloilo—John Kevien Jimenez was crowned the Games and Amusements Board Youth Philippine minimumweight king late Friday night during Manny Pacquiao Presents: Blow-By-Blow at the City of Passi Arena.
In getting the job done, Jimenez beat Jayson Brillo on a 10-round unanimous decision before an appreciative crowd that was on a high as the city was celebrating its feast.
Representing the fabled Chao Sy Boxing Stable of Cebu City, Jimenez won by scores of 96-94 on all three scorecards.
Jimenez improved to 7-0 with three knockouts while Brillo dropped to 7-2-1 with six knockouts.
“Blow-By-Blow will continue to be at the forefront of Philippine boxing,” said Pacquiao, whose TV boxing program is the most sought-after in the country.
Revived by the eight-division legend in November 2022, Blow-By-Blow has staged full-sized fight cards not only in Metro Manila but in the provinces like General Santos City, Narvacan in Ilocos Sur and Imus, Cavite.
Next for Blow-By-Blow is a six-fight presentation on 25 March at Okada when the first Pacquiao-Elorde Awards take the spotlight.
