Subic to host ASBC Youth boxing tourney

PhilBoxing.com



Ricky Vargas.
Scenic Subic Bay will provide a breathtaking backdrop to the fierce action set to break out March 10-17 when the ASBC Asian Confederation Youth Boxing Championships kicks off in this coastal municipality of Zambales.

With 26 Asian countries sending their fighters 17-18 years of age for the 10-weight division slugfest at the Subic Bay gym, no less than officials of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority are getting ready for the forthcoming ring combat and the influx of foreign athletes.

“We want to highlight this as a world class event,” said SBMA deputy administrator Raul F. Marcelo. “[SBMA] Chairman Bobby Garcia has given explicit instructions to fully cooperate with PLDT-ABAP in seeing to it that all efforts are made to impress upon our foreign guests our unique brand of hospitality, organizational savv, and the natural charm of Subic Bay.”

For the weeklong event, SBMA, according to ABAP executive director Ed Picson, has refurbished the air-conditioned Subic Bay gym with a fresh coat of paint, comfortable lounges and locker rooms.

“They will also be deploying ample security personnel to assure order in the event which has drawn over 130 boxers,” said Picson.

“We expect our guests to not only enjoy exciting and competitive boxing, but also everything that Subic Bay has to offer in terms of accommodation, entertainment and an environment of relaxation and the good life,” said Marcelo.. “We are proud to partner with PLDT, Smart and ABAP in welcoming all our guests.”

For his part, ABAP president Ricky Vargas expressed gratitude to SBMA chairman and administrator Roberto V. Garcia and deputy administrator Marcelo for the “enthusiastic support” they show for this national effort because “this is not just an ABAP venture but a national one.”

Powerhouse China, North Korea, former Soviet republics, and the Middle Eastern bloc, including war-torn Syria, are among the nations that have confirmed their participation.
