As Yonnhy Perez fought Abner Mares to a draw his fellow Columbian Luis Melendez traded leather with Michael Domingo hours after the fight. Perez was offered to fight Domingo but Yonnhy opted to fight the undefeated Abner Mares. If you are offered the same money, who will you fight, the undefeated fighter or the fighter who have 14 losses on his record? Every one fell on the same trap Michael Domingo sets in. That’s how former undefeated Miguel Roman, former world champion Ratanachai Sinwancha, Jose Navarro and now Luis Melendez failed because they became complacent knowing Domingo has many losses on his ledger. The fact is Michael is one of the craftiest and technical fighter in the ALA stable second to Z Gorres, who suffered a blood clot during his Melendez fight that ended his career. Domingo’s losses happened early on his career when he was mismanaged but now as an ALA fighter he won 8 straight wins and is now knocking on opportunity to give him a title fight. Michael had to wait 7 months with multiple postponements before he gets back in the ring. Yohnny won’t fight him and Fernando Montiel opted to fight the inexperience Ciso Morales who was going up in weight. Nobody wants to fight Domingo and when they were looking for a solid fighter who could give him a sure competition, Luis Melendez rightfully fits the bill. Melendez is not a technical fighter but he has the power to turn everything up. The fight entitled “Resbak”(Revenge) was a fight Michael needs, not because he has to shake those ring rust but for his fallen comrade Z Gorres. Boxing is a contact sport and what happened to Gorres could have happened to anyone. Michael made a short workout against Melendez and as the first bell rang he was like a lion unleashed hitting Melendez with multiple combinations to the head and body. It took only one liver shot to stop Melendez just as it took only one head shot to stop Gorres’s career. Redemption made… Domingo wants Perez next now it’s up to Yonnhy to exact revenge against his fellow compatriot Melendez. Michael Domingo will be a world champion someday there is no denying it… It was destiny that called him to fight against Melendez now it’s destiny waiting in a form of a gold belt.
