Ocampo spoils Haya’s attempt at a world title

WENG Haya’s dream of a world title shot has been shattered after Jose Ocampo knocked him out last Sunday night in a free boxing event by SGG Promotions at the Cebu

The 22-year-old Ocampo captured the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) Asia-Pacific super featherweight crown after stopping the up-and-comer Haya in the 2:26 mark of the fourth round.

Ocampo, a former WBO Oriental lightweight champion, unleashed a barrage of combinations who sent Haya to the canvas twice in the third round. The 22-year-old Cebuano, that gave WBO featherweight king Orlando Salido a run for his money, was caught with vicious left that ended his world title hopes. Haya was promised a rematch with Salido if ever he won the crown.

Ocampo improved to 15-5-1 with 10 knockouts, while Haya dropped to 15-5 with eight knockouts.
