He kept a clean slate for extra bragging rights as he completed last Thursday’s event held at the 9Eleven Restobar.

Sahagun bulldozed his way through the first three rounds taking down Senen Pangelinan, Ray Matsunaga and Warlee Ellama to advance into the semifinals keeping his momentum.

Jerry Soriano, who also had a flawless performance, was sent to the losers’ bracket during the semifinals falling victim to Sahagun’s assault as he enters the finals rounds.

Ray Matsunaga also fell to the hands of Sahagun but made his way back up to face Soriano in the battle for redemption.

Soriano came out victorious opening another chance to get back at Sahagun in the finals but Sahagun managed to maintain his touch to end the tournament undefeated with the first place title with the $50 cash prize and the Bud Light T-shirt.

Jerry Soriano settled for second place with the $30 cash prize and a Bud Light T-shirt while Ray Matsunaga took third with the $20 cash prize and a Bud Light T-Shirt.
