FIVE ACTIVE FILIPINO WORLD CHAMPIONS PART 2

JOHN RIEL CASIMERO
Living by his moniker “Angas ng Pinas,” John Riel Casimero definitely brings the fire in
and outside of the ring.
He may be the most controversial Pinoy boxer but Quadro Alas is a three-division world
champion/
Following his 10th-round knockout of local Argentine boxer Luis Alberto Lazarte for the
IBF interim junior flyweight championship on February 11, 2012, Casimero and
members of his entourage were kicked and assaulted by spectators in Mar del Plata
who hurled chairs and invaded the ring. Casimero and his colleagues were led to their
hotel and given security following the violence. Later, Lazarte came to apologize. After
Casimero won the title fight, Argentine supporters attacked him in the ring, prompting
the Philippines to submit a diplomatic protest with the Argentine government. . The IBF
banned Lazarte for making a threat, which resulted in a ring riot.
On July 19, 2012, Casimero was upgraded to the status of full IBF junior flyweight
champion because of the inability of Ulises Solis to defend his title on or before October
30.
In a contentious fight on June 27, 2015, he lost his comeback to flyweight by unanimous
decision against IBF champion Amnat Ruenroeng. Casimero challenged Ruenroeng for
the IBF flyweight title again on May 25, 2016, and knocked him out in the fourth round
with a powerful left hook to the body to become a two-division world champion.
Casimero fought Zolani Tete for the WBO bantamweight title in Birmingham, England
on November 30, 2019. Despite being the underdog in the bout, Casimero knocked out
Tete in the third round to win the WBO bantamweight title. Casimero became a three-
division world champion as a result of his victory.

RENE MARK CUARTO
Cuarto made his professional debut on June 28, 2014, when he defeated Rodante
Suacasa in a four-round unanimous decision (UD) at the Almendras Gym in Davao City,
Philippines.
He won the vacant WBO Oriental mini-flyweight title by twelve-round unanimous
decision over Clyde Azarcon at the Gaisano Mall in Davao, Philippines, after a 15–1–1
(9 KO) record.
He fought IBF mini-flyweight champion Pedro Taduran on February 27, 2021 at the Bula
Gym in General Santos, Philippines, after four more fights–two victories, one loss, and a
draw. Cuarto defeated Taduran through unanimous decision over twelve rounds in a
battle that saw Cuarto box at range while the defending champion took a more
aggressive approach. All three judges scored the bout 115–113 for Cuarto.
