Sultan stymied the former world junior flyweight and flyweight champion with swarming punches early in the bout.

Although Casimero was able to rattle the relatively younger fighter with a stinging right straight in the 7th round, this wasn’t enough to finish off Sultan.

With the victory, Sultan, who now sports a 14-3 record, became the mandatory challenger to IBF junior bantamweight champion Jerwin Ancajas.

Casimero, on the other hand, absorbed his 4th defeat in 28 fights.
