PhilBoxing.com




Boxing legend and Philippine senator Manny Pacquiao lights up the cauldron to open the 2019 South East Asian Games at the New Clark City in Tarlac, Philippines Saturday, Nov. 30.

With the games' core venues lie in the direct path of approaching typhoon Kammuri that is expected to hit the capital on Tuesday, thousands of athletes, officials and fans from around the region gather to witness the opening festivities filled with Philippine tradition and stardom.

Competitors will vie for medals in the next 11 days of games that got off to a rough start due to transport snafus and a last-minute rush to wrap up construction.

The biennial multi-sport event, which started in 1959, is being participated by athletes in eleven countries in Southeast Asia including Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste, Vietnam and host Philippines.
