Miguel Antoine’s quest for the World Boxing Organization’s (WBO) International Junior Welterweight title was short-lived.

Fighting on the Pinoy Pride 17 card at the Mall Of Asia Arena in the Philippines yesterday morning, Antoine suffered a first-round knockout from hometown boy Jason Pagara.

Antoine, who went into the bout with a 17-0-1 record, was hoping to use the 12-round bout as a stepping stone to bigger things, but the Caribbean champ was unable to take away Pagara’s belt, as the latter took his record to 30-2-0 with 19 knockouts.

The main fight on the card was a WBO bantamweight clash between A.J. Panal, of the Philippines, and Thailand’s Punglung Sor Singyu which the latter won by a ninth-round technical knockout.

After Banal was knocked out, the referee deemed him unfit to continue and Sor Singyu walked away with the title.

In the secondary bout, Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista, of the Philippines, went the full 12 rounds in a split decision against Mexico’s Daniel Ruiz for the vacant WBO international featherweight belt and Michael “Bruce Lee” Domingo, of the Philippines, also stopped Uganda’s Mudde Ntambi Rabison in the second round in the final bout.
