“I really thought he was done when he went down. I wanted to finish the fight early but props to my tough opponent. I did good though in boxing him the following rounds. I am hoping to go up in the IBF ranking having won the North America belt. I am praying hard for bigger fights next year especially for a world title fight”, Plania stated.
Meanwhile, fellow Filipino and Sanman fighter John Vincent Moralde, now (W23 KO13 L3 D0) shocked Argentinian opponent Mattias Arriagada by knocking him down three times before the referee saved him from further punishment in the very first round.
Sanman CEO Jim Claude Manangquil was very happy about his boxers’ win in Miami. “It was a step-up game for them especially for Mike. We are targeting a world title match for him next year. A little more polishing and he’s ready for the big time”, Manangquil said.
