By REY DANSECO

WBC Asia light flyweight champion Richard Claveras (12-1-2, 12 KOs) wanted to live up to his monicker “Explosive” when he started strong but was caught by to a devastating left hook to lose by knockout to WBC light flyweight king Pedro “Guevara (25-1-1, 17 KOs) tonight at the jam-packed Centro de Usos Multiples, Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico.

Referee Jerry Catu counted him out at 2:31 mark of the first round.

Claveras looked good in the first minute when he landed his strong left uppercut and right straight. But Guevara wait for his time and his patience paid off.

Guevara saw an opening with right straight to set up his most devastating and favorite KO punch to the right side of Clavera’s body.

The 25-year-old Filipino fell on his knees and failed to get back on his feet.

“I wanted to get up but I couldn’t. As I attempted to move, it was getting so painful,” said Claveras, who when he was caught was moving towards Guevara’s right.

Clavera’s managers Ryuta Kato and Warren were speechless in shocked. Trainer Virgilio Openio said, “naunahan tayo”.
