Ex-Philippine, WBC Youth Champ Alta Loses In Australia

By REY DANSECO

Former Philippine and WBC youth champion Marlon Alta suffered his fourth loss in a row, second in Australia.

Alta (12-6, 9 KOs), a SUPER MIDDLEWEIGHT, failed to win any round and loss via shutout unanimous decision over six rounds against LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT Damien Hooper (10-1-1, 8 KOs) on Sunday at Eatons Hill Hotel in Eatons Hill, Queensland, Australia.

In the same card that promoted by Angelo Di Carlo, Mark Ramirez and Simitar Dipaculang, who were both born in the Philippines but raised in Australia, both figured in majority draw in the 5th round against separate Aussie foes.

Dipaculang (2-2-2, 1 KO) drew with Daniel Hoskins (8-25-4, 6 KOs) of their super welterweight fight while Ramirez (5-8-2) had the same result against Matt Te Paa (3-16-3) in their super lightweight contest.

Alta once became a prospect after he won the vacant Philippine super welterweight title in 2011 and vacant WBC Youth Intercontinental middleweight title in the following year in Manila.

But the 5-foot-10 orthodox abruptly broke up with his Manila-based manager and went back to General Santos City. Since then, he got his string of losses against Makoto Fuchigami for vacant OPBF middleweight title in Japan, Zac Dunn in Australia, Qu Peng in China and then to Hooper.

“Got the win & great to be back on track. Massive thank you to my promoter @HitmanHatton who still believed in me,” Twitted Hooper, who was ranked fourth in Australia in the light heavyweight division.
