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.

AIBA World Boxing Championships Baku 2011: PHL campaign wiped out as Saludar lose to Warren

5 10 2011

Baku, Azerbaijan– The campaign of the 6 boxers sent by the Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines (ABAP) ended in the 3rd round as Rey Saludar exited the tournament with a 12-22 loss to Rau’Shee Warren of the United States. Saludar has a chance to qualify is Warren wins at least 2 more bouts. It was a tough campaign for the Philippine boxing team as 3 of them lost in the first round, 1 in the round of 32, and 2 in the round of 16. If nobody qualifies here in Baku, Abap will have to send a stronger team to the Asian qualifiers where boxers will fight for the remaining slots allocated for Asia in the 2012 London Olympics. The number of slots hinges on the performance of Asian countries here at the World Amateur Boxing Championship.
