3 ABAP pugs assured of medals


PhilBoxing.com



Ian Clark Bautista.

Three Philippine fighters are guaranteed a bronze medal at the 36-nation 30th Asian Boxing Confederation (ASBC) Championships with bantamweight Ian Clark Bautista, lightheavyweight John Marvin and lightflyweight Josie Gabuco booking tickets to the semifinals at the Huamark Indoor Stadium in Bangkok tomorrow.


ABAP sent seven male and three female fighters to represent the country in the competition which was inaugurated in Bangkok in 1963. The Philippines has hosted the championships twice----in Manila in 1970 and in Puerto Princesa in 2004. This is the seventh edition that Bangkok is staging after 1963, 1973, 1985, 1991, 1992 and 2015. The previous tournament was held in Uzbekistan in 2017.

Struck out in their first action were lightweight Jeorge Edusma, lightwelterweight Sugar Rey Ocana and featherweight Nesthy Petecio. Edusma, 23, lost a 3-2 decision to Turkeminstanís Hursand Imankubyev while Ocana, 22, bowed to Japanís Daisuke Narimatsu on a cut in the first round. Petecio, 26, suffered a surprise loss when she dropped a 3-2 verdict to 19-year-old Irie Sena of Japan.

Petecioís defeat was far from convincing as one of the judges Cherfaoui Hamdane of Algeria even saw her the winner by a 30-27 shutout. One other judge Martina Sadie of Ireland scored it 29-28, also for Petecio. But three judges had it otherwise with Faraj Sultan of the United Arab Emirates and Sulejmani Maksim of Australia scoring it 30-27 for Sena and Meretnyyazov Ishanguly of Turkmenistan also favoring the Japanese, 29-28.

Bautista, Marvin and Gabuco are up against tough opponents in the semifinals. If they win, it will be a guaranteed silver and ticket to the finals on Friday. Bautista faces Uzbekistanís Mirazizbek Myrzahalilov. Marvin battles Mongoliaís Shinebayar Narmandakh and Gabuco takes on Mongoliaís Balsan Mungunsaran.

To qualify for the semifinals, Bautista outpointed Vietnamís Nguyen Van Gioi, 5-0 and Chinaís Chen Zhihao, 4-1. Marvin disposed of Chinese Taipeiís Pa Bo Cheng and Iranís Hussein Daneshvar while Gabuco beat Bhutanís Tandin Lhamo on a walkover and Kazakhstanís Alua Balkibekova via a 3-2 decision.

Four Filipino fighters lost in the quarterfinals. Lightflyweight Ramel Macado, 23, got off to a strong start, defeating Iranís Omid Ahmadisafa on a 4-1 decision and Malaysiaís Muhamad Fuad Bin Redzuan Muhamad on a 5-0 shutout then lost to Kazkahstanís Temirtas Zhusapov on a stoppage due to a cut. Flyweight Marvin Tabamo, 22, beat Indonesiaís Aldoms Suguro and Singaporeís Hamid Hanurdeen before dropping a 4-1 verdict to Japanís Tosho Kashiwasaki. Welterweight Joel Bacho, 26, wiped out Indonesiaís Saputra Samado, 5-0 then took 5-0 beating from Chinaís Mai Maitituersun Qiong. Bantamweight Nice Zzaa Petecio, 24, bowed to Indiaís Manisha, 5-0.

ABAP coaching consultant Don Abnett of Australia said Gabuco was the clear winner over Balkibekova and deserved a shutout. ďI donít know how they came up with 3-2,Ē he said. It was Abnett who reported that the Philippines was assured of three bronze medals with two more boxers in contention. Abnett joined the Philippine delegation with coaches Ronald Chavez, Boy Velasco, Romeo Brin and Mitchel Martinez. Three-star international referee-judge Roger Fortaleza is also in the delegation.
