Jae Sung Song Retains WBF Title In Devastating Fashion

World Boxing Federation (WBF) Asia Pacific Featherweight champion Jae Sung Song retained his title in devastating fashion on Sunday, February 11, in his native South Korea.

At the Gowon Gymnasium in Taebaek City, Sung Song knocked out Filipino challenger Delmar Pellio with a brutal body-shot in the very first round.

Pellio, who had never been stopped before, remained on the canvas for several minutes. Official time of stoppage 1:45.

This was Sung Song´s second defense of the WBF Asia Pacific title, as he improves his professional record to 5-0-1 (5). Pellio drops to 9-3 (4).

WBF President Howard Goldberg, who flew in from Cape Town, South Africa to be ringside, was impressed with the 27-year-old southpaw, saying:

“That was one of the best body-shots I have ever seen. It was loud, precise and hard, and I am confident that Sung Song will go on to achieve even higher accolades. He is very promising.”
