ZAMBOANGA CITY (Mindanao Examiner / July 27, 2008) – Philippine boxing champion Eric Canoy retained his WBO Oriental Featherweight belt after a technical draw Sunday with Thailand’s Terdsak Jandaeng in Zamboanga City.
The draw was decided after a head clash on the 4th of the 12-round bout that cut Canoy’s right eye. Referee Bruce McTavish stopped the fight on the suggestion of a ringside physician.
Canoy has 5 knockouts of the seven wins to his career record while Jandaeng boasts of 20 knockout wins in his 33 professional fights.
Indian astrologer Bejan Daruwalla earlier predicted that Canoy may win the fight.
"Ganesha finds that Eric Canoy may win in this boxing match and Terdsak Jandaeng may lose, despite good performance," the astrologer said in his website Ganesha. (Mindanao Examiner)
