KIDAPAWAN CITY – - Atlanta Olympic silver medalist Mansueto “Onyok” Velasco and Philippine Sports Commissioner Charles Raymond Maxey are both gracing the Mindanao Quarter Finals of PSC-Pacquiao Amateur Boxing up set Feb. 10 and 11 at the Kidapawan City Gym.
Mayor Joseph Evangelista will give the welcome address during the opening program on Saturday at 2 p.m.
Velasco, who won a silver medal in the 2006 Atlanta Olympics, also graced the Visayas Preliminaries held last week at his own hometown in Bago City, Negros Occidental.
“Gusto kong magbigay ng inspirasyon sa mga batang boksingero natin na sumasali ngayon dito sa torneyong ito ng PSC at ng Sen. Manny Pacquiao,” said Velasco, who started boxing at the young age of 8 years old.
Velasco made it to the Philippine national team after he won in the National Youth Open.
“Aside from the cash incentives and medals, the winners and outstanding boxers from this tournament will also get a chance to become a member of the training pool,” said Maxey, a former sports editor in Davao City.
The Mindanao Semi-Finals will be held on March 3 in Cagayan de Oro City followed by the Mindanao Finals on March 24 in Davao City.
