MANILA, Philippines — After Carlo Paalam’s golden performance in the Asian Elite Championships in Amman, Jordan barely a month ago, an up-and-coming youngster sparkled in the World Youth Championships which concluded Friday evening in La Nucia, Spain.

Ronel Suyom, a 17-year-old, scored several upsets en route to a silver-medal finish in the tournament which attracted over 500 participants from 73 countries.

A native of Bukidnon, Suyom trained at the Cagayan de Oro gym founded by long-time CDO mayor Oscar Moreno. The boxing program has been continued by the newly-elected City Executive Klarex Uy.

Suyom figured in the finals for 17- and 18-year-olds after disposing of the home bet in the minimum-weight category – European Youth champion Rafael Lozano Serrano.
