Former Olympian Mark Anthony Barriga nabbed his 7th career victory with a clinical performance against Thailand's Wittawas Basapean to claim the vacant World Boxing Organization international minimumweight belt in the main event of a Beijing fight card co-promoted by Many Pacquiao.

According to Philboxing.com, the 2012 London Olympian outclassed the Thai fighter to secure a unanimous decision win at Heyuan Royal Garden Hotel on Friday night.
