Boxing: Magsayo successfully debuts for MP Promotions, wins via split decision over Hermosillo
Mark “Magnifico” Magsayo made a successful debut under MP Promotions, hacking out a ten-round split decision win over Rigoberto Hermosillo in the main event of FS1 PBC Fight Night held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles with no fans present.
The 28-year-old Hermosillo, a replacement for original opponent Jose Haro, had a good showing in several rounds. Two judges scored it for Magsayo because of his harder shots (100-90, 96-94) Magsayo while the other judge had it 96-94 for Hermosillo.
It was the 21st win for Magsayo who has yet to taste defeat. It was his first fight since winning over Panya Uthok of Thailand. He won via unanimous decision to snag the WBC-ABC featherweight title.
