Reymart Gaballo wrecks Japanese softie

By Scott Shaffer


Reymart Gaballo TKO2 Yuya Nakamuya... In Pasay City in The Philippines, Reymart Gaballo retained his WBA interim bantamweight belt with a second-round technical knockout of Yuya Nakamuya of Japan. Gaballo (21-0) had Nakamura (9-3-1) down twice in round one and once in round two. Gaballo is an explosive puncher whose wide punches had no problem finding their mark. Though he's from Japan, Nakamura's credentials are suspect as he never fought in his home country, instead building up a decent record against a very low level of opposition. His lack of credentials was quicky exposed by Gaballo, but he was game, protesting the stoppage even though he was in no shape to continue. source results: espn5 video
