2013-07-13 Merlito Sabillo w rsc 9 Jorle Estrada, Solaire Resort Hotel & Casino, Pasay City, Metro, Manila, Philippines - WBO. Referee: Raul Caiz Jr. Sabillo was making the first defence of the title that was handed to him after Moises Fuentes had moved up in weight.

On 20 July, Carlos Buitrago defeated Julian Yedras (w pts 12 at the Siglo XX1 Convention Centre, Merida, Mexico) in a fight to find Sabillo’s next opponent. Originally reported to be an ‘interim’ title fight, it was, in fact, an eliminator.
