Melindo loses title belt on New Years Eve

Milan "El Metodico" Melindo has a sad New Year after being defeated by Ryoichi Taguchi of Japan via unanimous decision.


It was a tactical fight, Ryoichi Taguchi decisively won the fight via smart boxing skills, the height of Taguchi really affects the fight as Melindo's counter punching ablities didn't work. Jabs by the Japanese did very well and Melindo can't connect a good shot.

The 31 years old Ryoichi Taguchi unified the IBF World Light Flyweight Title and WBA Super World Light Flyweight Title while Melindo grabbed his 3rd losses.

The score were: 117-111 (2x), 116-111 all for Taguchi.

Fight happened at Ota-City General Gymnasium on December 31, 2017. The fight will be expected to telecast in the Philippines on January 2, 2018.
