AIBA World Boxing Championships Baku 2011: Barriga wins opening bout

27 09 2011

Panabo City‘s Mark Anthony Barriga starts the Philippine campaign in the 2011 World Boxing Championships on the right foot as he defeated Romanian Stefan Caslarov, 12-5. The AIBA World Boxing Championships is the first qualifying event to the 2012 London Olympics. Barriga, the light-flyweight bet of the Philippine team that is bankrolled by the Philippine Sports Commission and supported by PLDT, Accel, Powerade and Clusivol, hopes to land in the Top 10 in his weight category to get the coveted spot in the London Olympics. Barriga will next face Paddy Barnes of Ireland. Barnes is the 2010 European Champion and 2008 Olympic Bronze medallist. The 18 year old Barriga won the Sydney Jackson Memorial Tournament  in Uzbekistan earlier this year.
