John Riel Casimero.

If that name wasn’t known in boxing as much as should have been before this weekend, it will be now.

Deservedly so.

He managed to upset whom many consider as the greatest Cuban fighter of all-time:

A split decision win in the end for the Filipino.

Enough to capture the WBO bantamweight world title in Carson, California.

No doubt ‘Rigo’ can still come back from this though, even at this stage of his career.

Credit to 32-year-old Casimero on a big win.
