Team Philippines is fielding veteran Nesthy Petecio and two others in its search for the gold in the Asian Women’s Boxing Championships slated to begin Thursday in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Accompanying Petecio, who settled for the bantamweight silver medal in the 2015 edition held in Wulanchabu, China, are light flyweight Judelyn Casin and flyweight Aira Villegas.

The 25-year-old Petecio of Davao is aching to get back at Thai Peamwilai Laopean, who ruled the 54kg division of the biennial event, which will run up to Nov. 8.


Accompanying the boxers sent by the Association of Boxing Alliances in the Philippines are coaches Roel Velasco and Violito Payla and team manager Patricio Gaspi, also the national head coach.
