Rodel Mayol vs Omar Niño Romero

Double Assault | Mayol Retains Title Against Romero

Category: Boxing


Rodel “Batang Mandaue” Mayol (26 wins, 4 losses, 1 draw) finally won his first world title in his fifth attempt after grabbing Edgar Sosa’s WBC Light Flyweight Championship belt on November  21, 2009.


But it was not without controversy as his unintentional headbutt in the 2nd Round probably brought the tide in his favor on the way to knocking out the champion in 2 rounds.

Looking to prove that his win was not a fluke, he will defend his title against Omar Niño “Giant Killer” Romero of Mexico in the co-main event for “Double Assault” to be held at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez, Bayamon, Puerto Rico on February 27, 2010.

Marvin Sonsona and Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. will meet for the WBO Junior Featherweight title in the other main event.

Romero (24 wins, 2 losses, 2 draws) is the former WBC Light Flyweight Champion defeating Brian Viloria in a major upset in August 2006 for the title. However, he was stripped of his title in February 2007 when he failed his post-fight drug test following his rematch with Viloria on November 18, 2006.


UPDATE February 27, 2010: The Rodel Mayol vs Omar Niño Romero bout was declared a technical draw after 3 rounds when Mayol got hit by a low blow and was knocked out by Romero before the referee can step in. Rodel Mayol retains his WBC Light Flyweight belt.

    I think so too. After that low blow, Romero should have immediately stepped out. But then again, he might have been carried away by his momentum and could not stop himself in time.
