PXC 41 happened this past weekend at the Ynares Arena in Pasig, Philippines, and it crowned a new champion for the promotion. During the headlining bout, Louis Smolka continued his impressive run with a 2nd round TKO against Ale Cali. The Hawaiian made good use of a clear advantage on the ground, as he got dominant positions and finished the fight with ground and pound. With the victory, Smolka was able to dethrone the PXC flyweight champion in his home country, and also improved his unbeaten record to 5-0.
The co-headlining spot of the card saw yet another Filipino suffer a tough loss, as former PXC bantamweight champ, Crisanto Pitpitunge succumbed to a rear naked choke from Korean Top Team's Han Bin Park after 3 rounds of back and forth action.
Mark Striegl and DEEP champ Seung Hwan Bang, were both supposed to be featured on the card, but the bouts have been postponed as both of their opponents failed to make weight the day earlier. Other winners on the line up include Gina Iniong earning a KO win, and Harold Banario earning another decision victory to improve to 4-0.
