Cordillera - Ifugao's youngest and undefeated boxer Carl James "The Wonder Boy" Martin was victorious yet again as he floored his opponent via technical knockout on Saturday at the Manila Arena.

The 20-year old Martin was able to keep his undefeated record when he defeated challenger Philip Luis Cuerdo via TKO in the 3rd round for the Philippine Boxing Federation Bantamweight crown.

Martin as expected delivers exciting fight as he unloaded powerful punches to Cuerdo through out the contest.

It was in the 3rd round that Martin caught Cuerdo with a powerful left hook that sent him to the canvas. 

Cuerdo was able to recover, but the younger Martin's hunger to finish the fight took the shaky Cuerdo with series of punches to the body and head. 

The fight was halted when the Cuerdo's coach came to stop to prevent further damage.

Martin, from Lagawe, Ifugao has never been defeated in his 15 bouts, with 14 wins came via knockouts.

Martin is currently reigns as the World Boxing Organization Oriental Youth bantamweight champion which he won on April 2018 by beating Hashimu Zuberi of Tanzania.

In 2017, he took the Interim World Boxing Council and Asian Boxing Council Continental bantamweight crown by defeating Artid Bamrunguea of Thailand via TKO.

His recent fight prior to facing Cuerdo was in June 10, 2019 when he beat another Thai fighter Yuttichai Wannawong. 

Congratulations  Carl James Martin of Ifugao.
