AJ Banal successful on his US debut!!!

Pinoy prospect AJ Banal won by UD over tough Mexican battle tested Juan Albert Rosas on the undercard of Dela Hoya - Mayweather bout. Scores are 78-73, 78-73 and 76-75, AJ Banal controlled the fight and stalked Rosas on the early rounds with body shots until he was deducted by one point
after a low blow in the 3rd round.

Rosas came back and turn the tide when Aj Banal was cautious to go the body and landed his own shots. But Aj Banal's conditioning and skills with his punishing body shots slowed the tough Mexican fighter on the later rounds.

AJ Banal still undefeated improved to 13 wins (10 KOs), Rosas lost his last 3 fights fall to 25 wins and 3 losses.
