Although there was nothing he could do against two-time AIBA World Champion and 2010 Guangzhou Olympic gold medalist Zou Shiming of China, spitfire Mark Anthony Barriga banked on Zou's win over Russia's David Ayrapetyan to earn a slot for the 2012 Olympic Games.
Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines president Ricky Vargas told philboxing.com/insidesports.ph that should Zou's victory over the Russian which sent him into the finals of the AIBA World Boxing Championship in Baku, Azerbaijan automatically carried Barriga who lost to the Olympian 12-5 in the quarter finals to the Olympics.
Zou scored another impressive 15-8 win over his Russian opponent to assure the 18 year old Barriga a slot at the London Olympics next year.
Flyweight Rey Saludar will also get a chance to qualify for the Olympics should American Rau' Shee Warren also beats his Russian foe in his semi final showdown.
