AIBA Women’s Boxing World Championships 2012: Josie Gabuco wins gold

20 05 2012

Josie Gabuco earned the Philippine‘s first ever gold medal in the history of AIBA Women’s Boxing World Championships. Gabuco beat hometown bet Xu Shiqi for the light-flyweight gold medal, 10-9.  While her victory did not give her an olympic slot, it was nevertheless a good news for Philippine boxing specially amateur boxing. With only one boxer going to London, the well-funded Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines (ABAP) are looking for new heroes to show that the country is still relevant in the olympic sport which we used to dominate in the Asian level. Gabuco is no stranger in giving the country honor as she is a back to back Southeast Asian games gold medal winner and a bronze medallist in the 2008 women’s boxing world championships.
