GAB Requests WBC Asia to Review Sarguilla vs Deebook Match; Calls for a Rematch

MANILA, Philippines -- In an official letter addressed to WBC Asian Boxing Council through Thailand boxing promoter Bank Thainchai Pisitwuttina, the chairman of the Philippine's Games and Amusement Board (GAB) Abraham Mitra urges the WBC Asia and the Thailand Boxing Commission to review the August 17 fight between Pinoy boxer Romshane Sarguilla and Thai fighter Siridech Deebook while expressing its inclination to "suspend authorizing Filipino boxers to fight in Thailand."

The controversial Sarguilla vs Deebook fight ended in a close unanimous decision in favor of the Thai boxer by scores 58-56 (twice) and 57-56 (on one judge). However, in the expert opinion of a GAB review panel, clear knockdowns scored by the Pinoy Sarguilla over Deebook were overlooked by the WBC Asia Thai officials.


The Filipino Boxer Sarguilla clearly lands a left uppercut that knocks the Thai down. But the knockdown was ruled a slip. GAB protests.

The Thai boxer's visit to the canvas was not considered a legitimate knock down.

GAB's official letter, dated Thursday, August 22, requests a review of the match by the WBC Asia boxing authorities in Thailand. It also calls for a rematch. The document mentions the possibility that Filipino boxers might not be allowed to fight anymore in Thailand. Further, the letter goes on to express that it seems that the only way a Filipino boxer could win in Thailand is only by knockout out his opponent.
