Marcial, Ladon settle for silver medals

/ 02:45 AM September 06, 2015

BANGKOK—Light flyweight Rogen Ladon and welterweight Eumir Felix Marcial bowed to their top-seeded foes in the finals Saturday and settled for silver medals in the ASBC Asian Boxing Championships at the Thammasat University Gymnasium here.

Ladon took a 2-0 defeat in the hands of Hasanboy Dusmatov of Uzbekistan while Marcial absorbed a 3-0 setback in the hands of reigning Asian Games champion Daniyar Yeleussinov of Kazakhstan.

Ladon and Marcial, 21 and 19 years old, will not go home empty-handed because for advancing to the medal rounds here, they both clinched slots to the Aiba World Championships in Doha, Qatar, from Oct. 5 to 15.


The Doha event will serve as qualifier to next year’s Rio Olympics.


Flyweight Ian Clark Bautista, who lost in the quarterfinals here, failed to book a ticket to Doha because he did not make the top six of his division.

Marcial stood toe-to-toe with Yeleussinov, a veteran of the 2012 London Olympics. The Kazakh got the better end of their battle but also took some hard shots from the Filipino.

Ladon, who had scored convincing victories over boxers from Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Mongolia on the way to the finals, did not get going against the top-seeded Uzbek.
