Romer Duno chose to hold momentarily his celebration in the ring after knocking out Kuldeep Dhanda. The fight was held at the Midas Hotel and Casino, Pasay City for the lightweight title.

The over-matched Dhanda (7-2, 1KO) was down in the first round once. Then he was knockdown again in the second round and ultimately stopped in the same round.

Dhanda was able to beat the count and continue. Duno landed another hard shot to the head that forced Dhanda to backpedal wobbly. Duno sensed the first-round stoppage and tried to stop his wobbly opponent. Dhanda held his ground tried to fight back and survived the round.

In the second round, Duno scored another knockdown and eventually landed a bombshell that stopped Dhanda. It was a terrifying shot as Dhanda was literally out even before he hits the canvas. Dhanda was knockout real cold. The way he was dropped looks a resemblance to a Juan Marquez knockout of Manny Pacquiao.
