Accra, Sept. 29, GNA –
Ghana’s Manyo Plange, put up a splendid performance to force Michael
Dasmariñas, International Boxing Organisation (IBO) Batamweight champion to a
split draw on Saturday night, at the Marina Bay Sands, in Singapore.

All the three judges
scored 97-93, 95-95, and 96-94.

It was the first draw
of Dasmariñas’ career, who has a record of 28 wins and two losses, while Plange
kept his undefeated record with 17 wins and one draw.

Plange, gained the
adulation of the fans at ringside throughout the fight because of his
aggression, as Dasmariñas did not look like the boxer, who won the IBO belt
last April.

Dasmariñas, was slower
than usual and looked like he was not well conditioned for the fight.

Dasmariñas, showed
signs of frustration in the fourth round, where he started swinging wildly.
While Plange stuck to his game plan as he outworked the Filipino IBO
bantamweight champion.

It was therefore a
surprise, when the fight was declared a draw, as Manyo looked good to have
carried the day.

After the surprising
decision was announced, Plange showed sportsmanship as he lifted Dasmariñas
before the two headed out of the ring.
