    The 26-year-old Filipino stopped Obbadi with a vicious body shot from where the Moroccan failed to recover.

    The stoppage came at the 2:25 mark of the third.

    The victory, Bornea’s 17 straight against no losses (11 KOs), gave the native of Arakan, Cotabato Del Norte, fighting out of San Man boxing stable, a shot at challenging Ancajas for his 115-pound title.

    Ancajas, 29, needs to get past Fernando Martinez of Argentina next month to arrange the mandatory title defense against Bornea.

      Obbadi, 28, said his record fell to 22-2 (13 KOs).
