Denver Cuello knocks out Samat Chaiyong

The Thai tried everything to stop Cuello’s attack in the fifth to eighth rounds but got trapped in a corner in the ninth and absorbed a hail of punches, forcing referee Bruce McTavish to stop the fight.

But Denver Cuello did not disappoint his hometown fans as he scored a fourth-round technical knockout win over Indonesian challenger Kid Suryana in their scheduled 10-round non-title bout Saturday night at the Jaro Plaza Gym in Iloilo City, Iloilo.

Cuello, The Ring Magazine's No. 7 strawweight contender and Cabatuan town native, stopped Suryana at the one-minute and 48-second mark of the fourth round to hike his fight record to 30 wins (20 knockouts), four losses and six draws.

The 25-year-old Cuello got off to a fast start, stunning the outclassed 23-year-old Suryana (8-2, four KOs) with his power and speed and putting him on the defensive. After four one-sided rounds the referee waved it off, declaring Cuello the winner.

Cuello's manager Aljoe Jaro says he was happy with the promotion, which he estimates drew a paid crowd of 3,000.

Cuello's next assignment will be on May 12 when he faces World Boxing Council (WBC) number one Ganigan Lopez (20-4, 14 KOs) of Amecameca, Mexico, possibly at the Ynares Sports Complex in Pasig City.
