Two boxers from Masbate secured major victories against their Thai and Australian opponents in an international boxing match held in Cataingan, Masbate.

Jeo Santisima defeated Thai boxer Arnon Yupang via technical knockout in the World Boxing Council (WBC) Asian Continental Super Featherweight Division.

His brother, Alex Santisima, also claimed victory by knocking out Justine Darap in the third round for the World Boxing Federation (WBF) Australian Super Bantamweight Division title.

Following Jeo's triumph, the Governor of Masbate said they will support Jeo for his upcoming match at the International World Boxing Championship scheduled to take place in Las Vegas, USA.
