"It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all- in which case, you fail by default, Moreover I didn't learn to be quiet when I had an opinion.

Philippino star boxer John Riel Casimero made a successful defense of his WBO bantamweight crown as he knocked out Ghana’s Duke Micah in the third round of their title fight in Connecticut, USA.
The 30-year-old Filipino dominated Duke Micah throughout with a series of punishing body blows, setting a frenetic pace from the opening bell at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville.
Casimero, who improved to 30-4, with 21 knockouts, had Micah in trouble in the second round, sending the challenger crashing to the canvas with a left hook that left the Ghanaian clinging on.
Micah (25-1) managed to survive into the third round, but with Casimero sensing victory, the Filipino launched an early onslaught and when a left followed by a right uppercut left Micah reeling, the referee stepped in to end the bout and earn a third-round TKO victory for Casimero.
