Ferer Memorial School of Fisheries today, 9:00am.

 Kenneth T. Dollolasa in the blue corner won gold agaisnt Ronald Lopez of NONESCOST in the red corner in 49 kgs division. 

The UA gold machine was sealed by Kenneth Tayzon Dollolasa from 49 kgs division against Northern Negros State College of Science and Technology (NONESCOST), bout 30 and July Sangco from 69 kgs against Central Philippine State University (CPSU), bout 35.

β€œI am very thankful to the Almighty God for His guidance. We focused a lot during our practice and I want to double my effort in my upcoming game to make not only myself proud but also the whole university,” said Dollolasa.

Dollolasa won via split decision, it’s his second year in RSCUAA and still maintained his gold medal.

Meanwhile, Sangco won via disqualification during the first round because his opponent continued to jab him straight that knocked him down while the referee stopped him when Sangco’s mouthpiece fell.

July Sangco in the red corner snatched the gold via disqualification of Delfino of CPSUin the blue corner on 69kgs division. 

It is in the boxing ground rules that if you are commanded to stop by the referee you should follow to avoid disqualification.

The boxer from CPSU was not able to receive any medal because of his violation.

On the other hand, the silver medallists were Ben Gregorio against Aklan State University (ASU) from 52 kgs division, bout 31 and Jaycee Pallad against CPSU, from 56 kgs division, bout 32; while John Levi Gallano from 60 kgs division and Jayvie Royce Gerona from 75 kgs division snatched the bronze medals.

Ben Gregorio of UA in the red corner nabbed silver against Reynan Lojera of ASU in the blue corner by unanimous decision on 52kgs division.

Overall, Iloilo Science and Technology University (ISAT-U) ranked first runner up tied with ASU with two golds followed by CPSU as second runner up with one gold, two silvers and two bronze medals.

Paterno Santillan, coach, said they lacked in practice because it only started for almost two weeks so it could have been better if they had enough practice like last year when they took four golds home.

Nevertheless, cooperation, focus, and right discipline during practice made them rise above their opponents according to Santillan.
