    ROLANDO Dy put on a spectacular performance, beating Kiyomi Matsushimi of Japan via technical knockout 23 seconds into their PXC 53 bout early Saturday morning at the Solaire Grand Ballroom.

    Dy threw rocked his Japanese opponent with a big left that forced the referee to step in to stop the fight. The Filipino fighter immediately celebrated, climbing the top of the octagon as the crowd cheered on the first knockout of the night.

    It was Matsushimi’s first loss in his MMA career.

    “One thing na nafe-feel ko ngayon, ‘yung faith ko kay Jesus Christ, lalong lumaki,” said Dy, son of legendary boxer Rolando Navarette.

    “This fight is almost impossible (to win). This guy, 6-0 all via knockout but because of the Lord Jesus Christ, I won,” Dy added.
