Filipino boxer Rogen Ladon settled for the silver medal after losing to Jasurbek Latipov of Uzbekistan in the men’s flyweight (52kg) event in the 2018 Asian Games Saturday in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The bout was stopped early in the second round after Ladon suffered a nasty cut above his left eye due to an accidental clash of heads.


Latipov won, 3-1, as Ladon gave the Philippines only its second silver in the continental showcase.

Apart from the two silvers, the Philippines also has four gold medals and 15 bronzes.
