Pinoy Honorio Banario scores second round knockout
Honorio Banario scored a second round KO win at ONE Championship: Kings of Destiny
Team Lakay lightweight contender Honorio Banario provided one of the night's most exciting highlights, as he scored a scintillating knockout win over Jaroslav Jartim of the Czech Republic in the second round of their bout at ONE Championship: Kings of Destiny, Friday evening at the Mall of Asia Arena.
The height disadvantage didn't seem to bother Banario as he managed to dominate Jartim in the grappling department, taking the Czech Republic native down at will and keeping control on the mat.
Less than two minutes into the second round, Banario countered a body kick from Jartim by unloading a jab and then landing a solid left hook flush on Jartim's chin, separating the Czech from his senses.
The former ONE featherweight champion improves to 12-6 in his professional career and makes it four straight wins in the ONE Championship lightweight division.
