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.

PHL Boxers earn cash rewards for Asiad feats

26 11 2010

The 16th Asian Games was the first major tournament for the revamped and enhanced amateur boxing program of the Philippines.  The Philippines have been one of the boxing powers in Asia and produced heroes like Mansueto and Roel Velasco, Roberto Jalnaiz, Leopoldo Serrantes, and many more.  In the recent years, there was a marked decline of performance in international tournaments. Changes were made and PLDT has taken the cudgels of sponsoring a new breed of Filipino amateur boxers. PLDT Phl Team Boxing sent 6 boxers in this years Asiad, half of those earned a medal. The team finished with 1 GOLD 1 SILVER and 1 BRONZE.  Part of the program is giving financial rewards for boxers who earn medals.

Rey Saludar is set to receive a P3 Million windfall after beating the host bet Chang Yong in front a shocked Chinese crowd. Silver medallist Annie Albania will receive P1 Million and Victorio Saludar will be P500,000 richer for his bronze.

caloycomment: This is great for the program.  I hope this will encourage more boxers to train harder in the amateur levels.  There is some money in the amateur levels and if one will be blessed enough to be the first Filipino olympic gold medallist, he or she will surely get a lot of money.  Not as much as Pacquiao but nevertheless, the first Olympic Gold medallist will have his name immortalized.  The boxers have the biggest chance to become legendary Filipino olympians.  Congratulations to the boxers and the sponsors!!!!

I hope that big companies will emulate PLDT and start to embrace other sporting disciplines so that the athletes can have some world-class training and exposure.  Sports like Taekwondo, chess, sepak-takraw, football, and baseball could use some funds.
