Jaro accepts loss to Japanese foe

[ Source: ] - July 25, 2012

MANILA, Philippines – Former world flyweight champion Sonny Boy Jaro said he has accepted his loss to Japanese boxer Toshiyuki Igarashi last week, which cost him the World Boxing Council and RING flyweight belts.

Igarashi defeated Jaro via split decision in the Japanese boxer's hometown.

"We did not knock the guy out, so we lost," Jaro told RingTV. "I accept it."

"From the very beginning, I told myself, 'If we will not knock this guys out, even if I'm ahead, we will lose.' I accept it," he added.

But his manager, Aljoe Jaro, refuses to accept his boxer’s loss, saying, "He won the fight, of course."
