Chris Co - Pilipino Star Ngayon

MANILA, Philippines — Malaki ang potensiyal ni junior boxer Ronel Suyom na posibleng sumunod sa yapak ng mga beteranong miyembro ng national boxing team.

Ito ang paniniwala ni Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) president Bambol Tolentino kung saan tiwala itong magiging Olympian ang 17-anyos na boxer.

“It’s a great showing by a 17-year-old boxer from the South and we’re hoping he can be our next Olympian in the future,” ani Tolentino.

Nagpasiklab si Suyom sa International Boxing Asso­ciation (Youth Men’s and Women’s World Championships na ginanap sa La Nucia, Spain kung saan sumuntok ito ng pilak na medalya sa minimumweight class.

Umaasa ang Association of Boxing Alliances in the Philippines (ABAP) na isa si Suyom sa magiging kahalili nina Tokyo Olympics silver medalists Carlo Paalam at Nesthy Petecio, at bronze medalist Eumir Felix Marcial.

“Congratulations to ABAP (Association of Bo­xing Alliances in the Philippines) for developing a boxer like Suyom, who is expected to win medals for our country in years to come. I am hoping they will find more boxing talents,” dagdag ni Tolentino.

Nagkasya sa pilak si Suyom matapos matalo kay Indian bet Vishvanath Suresh sa finals.
