#APB Carlos Quipo upsets Zhonglin Wu in Light Flyweight classic

07 June 2015 News

APB-PROFILE-PICTURES-49-2000x1000-QUIPO-1800x900Two nights of outstanding AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) light flyweight (49 kg) action took place this weekend in Guiyang, China, where Ecuador’s Carlos Quipo defeated China’s own Zhonglin Wu in the headline bout.

This was the second meeting of the two boxers in APB, and after the Chinese star won their first contest on points, Quipo earned victory in their rematch after making some excellent adjustments.

A frenetic pace was set over all eight rounds as each boxer controlled certain parts of the fight, but it was Quipo whose punches were more accurate, and he gained in confidence and swagger as the bout progressed.

Many light flyweight contests often involve a lot of movement, yet in this fight there was plenty of action in the middle of the ring, with the two boxers going toe-to-toe as they attempted to impress the judges.

Quipo’s left hooks often stopped Zhonglin from producing his own shots at the right time, and despite the adulation from his home crowd, the Chinese fighter could not produce his best work in Guiyang.

After eight rounds of extreme intensity Quipo’s hand was raised with his success sealed, and he will now meet current AIBA World Champion Birzhan Zhakypov in Cycle I Round 2 after he defeated Patrick Lourenco for the third time in APB.

Two more light flyweight matches took place on Sunday in China, beginning with Mongolia’s Ariunbold Ganselem who surprisingly defeated two-time European Champion David Ayrapetyan, while Leandro Blanc outpointed Commonwealth Games bronze medalist Fazil Juma Kaggwa.

  • Patrick LOURENCO (BRA) vs Birzhan ZHAKYPOV (KAZ) W.P. (74:78/73:79/75:77)
