PAGADIAN – Boxers backed by popular ring icon Manny Pacquiao captured most of the golds up for grabs at the close of the POC-PSC Philippine National Games Mindanao eliminations here on Monday.

General Santos pugs topped that list with four golds, led by Jhon Peter Patrick Cagumay, who scored an impressive fourth-round technical knockout win over Bayog’s Roque Tapayan in the junior boy’s bantamweight division at the Combat Sports Arena inside the Provincial Government Center.

RV Denega topped team PacMan’s Richard Bulacan, 2-1, in the boy’s flyweight division,  Jayson Mama carved a unanimous decision triumph in Sarangani province’s Rodrigo Belinggan in the boy’s flyweight class, Regel Lou Alde beat Digos City’s Jerson Bancil by a 2-1 decision in the men’s elite flyweight category for GenSan’s other victories.

Team Pacman took two golds with feisty Jean Minguillian dominating Zamboanga City Rosmil Samson, 3-0, while Rey Tagulaylay proved too much for Digos City’s Jeremy Puno, 3-0, in the men’s elite light flyweight championship in the meet organized by the Philippine Olympic Committee and the Philippine Sports Commission.

Zamboanga City and the town of Guipos, Zamboanga del Sur secured a pair of mints each in the sportiest supported by the Zamboanga del Sur provincial government led by Gov. Antonio Cerilles, who hosted the PNG as part of the highlights of the province’s 63rd founding anniversary.

Rennie Boy Ferraren beat Team Pacman’s Jestine Tesoro, 2-1, in the boy’s light bantamweight class while Romer Dagoy whipped Manti’s Album Pelesio, 3-0, in the boy’s bantamweight category for Zamboanga City’ victories.

Guipos boxer Sherwin Anthony Marcial overwhelmed Cagayan de Oro’s Renato Victolero, 3-0, and teammate Dennis Gaan outslugged CDO’s Roel Otaza, 3-0, in ruling the boy’s lightweight and men’s elite light welterweight championship matches, respectively.



Sarangani’s Dave   Apolinario defeated Zamboanga City’s Archie Galvez, 3-0, in securing the boy’s light flyweight crown while Cabadbaran’s Felmar Antiga vanquished GenSan’s Jan Ramil Boloy, 3-0, in bagging the boy’s featherweight title.

Lutay’s  Carolyn Calungsod clobbered GenSan’s Roxan Capawan, 3-0, in annexing the girl’s bantamweight championship while Pagadian Mohammad Khader Banua subdued Cagayan de Oro’s Denmark Quibido, 2-1, in the men’s bantamweight finals for the other victories.

Cabadbaran’s Earl John Zamora, a former member of the NU varsity squad, topped the men’s standard competition in chess while Davao City’s Mary Jonah Lequin took top honors in the women’s standard division.

The gold, silver, and bronze medalists in the Mindanao eliminations qualify for the PNG national finals next year in April.


Batang Pinoy 2013 Finals Boxing Bouts

 BP 2013 Schedule of Boxing Bouts


Article by PSC Commissioner Atty. Jose Luis ‘Jolly’ Gomez

some excellent writing skills from the boss.

A stolen victory from our Filipino boxers. Heading into the final day, the Philippines had 7 gold medal matches, 2 against Indonesia, 3 against Thailand, and 2 against host Myanmar.

The two matches were the ones we were worried about because of the undue advantage that the Myanmar team has been given in this boxing tournament.

After a gold medal win from Josie Gabuco, the match of Nesthey Pretecio vs a Myanmar boxer was so one-sided that we were all confident of a win. Knockout No. 1 – the Myanmar boxer won 2-0! The Uzbekistan and Syrian judges marked it 39-37, the Tajikistan judge couldn’t help it and had to give a 38-38 tie. All of the judges voted for the Myanmar boxer in the 4th and last round which was overwhelmingly ours.

The other bouts for the day were well fought by our boys, with Mark Barriga and Mario Fernandez winning over an Indonesian and Thai boxer. Junel Cantancio and Dennis Galvan were up against taller and more experienced boxers and lost their matches which were well OK although Junel’s match was close with Tajikistan and Sri Lanka voting for the Thai and Indonesia voting for PH. The last bout had Willy Lopez vs Wailin Aung of Myanmar. The PH coaches knew that he had only one punch, a wild knockout hook.

The strategy was for Willy to keep a distance, keep his arms down, and tire the boxer out. It was working with Willy scoring points with quick punches while evading all the haymaker punches. The wild partisan Myanmar crowd was subdued. By the second round, Willy started attacking causing the Myanmar boxer to clinch more.


Close to the end of the round, the Myanmar boxer went in for a clinch and head-butt Willy causing his right eye to get cut. The referee stopped the fight and called the doctor for an assessment, the doctor said he was unfit to fight with a small cut! Here’s where it gets worse, the referee then proceeds to award the victory to Myanmar and the crowd goes wild! Including all the government officials who came to watch the match.

Ed Picson of ABAP says that the rule should be that in the event of a stopped fight, the judge’s scorecard should be consulted and whoever is leading will be awarded the fight.

Clearly, Willy Lopez was ahead but the scorecards were never shown on screen and the match was over. He will file a protest but in his mind, this will be difficult to overturn because of existing AIBA rules.

We are proud of our boxers. A delegation of 10 boxers ended up with 3 Golds, 4 Silvers, and 3 Bronzes. 4 of them are rookies and 5 of them are under 22 years old. This is the future of Filipino boxing. Laban Pilipinas!
