MANILA, Philippines—Filipinos Aaron Jude Bado and Flint Jara advanced to the gold medal round in their respective weight classes in the ASBC Asian U22 Boxing Championships at Huamark Indoor Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand on Monday.

Bado stamped his class and handled Malaysia’s Qaiyum Ariffin via unanimous decision, 5-0, in the men’s flyweight semifinal.

Jara, on the other hand, needed to overcome a stiff challenge from Mongolia’s Ganbold Dorjnyambuu by split decision, 3-2, to secure his spot in the men’s bantamweight final.

Bado is expected to have a tougher time in the championship round against home bet Thanarat Saengphet, who breezed past Uzbekistan’s Mukhammadkodir Mamirjonov, 5-0.
