Filipino boxer Ernie Sanchez wins bout in Pacquiao prelim

June 10, 2012 8:37am
(Updated 9:06am) Filipino featherweight Ernie Sanchez won a unanimous decision over the Dominican Republic's Wilton Hilario, Saturday (Sunday, PHL time), in the preliminary card of the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley bout.

The fight, which went the full eight rounds, was scored 79-73, 78-74, 78-74 by the judge, in favor of Sanchez, who improved to 13-3 with 5 KOs. Hilario (12-3-1, 9 KO), by contrast, looked rusty, which was apt for someone who had not fought in the last 18 months.

Sanchez could have the potential to become another Filipino boxing stalwart should he continue to improve his technique.
