By Gregorio Tavera

      Part of fiesta highlights, the local government unit of Jagna showcased a total entertainment to boxing enthusiasts in Bohol and nearby provinces in Visayas and Mindanao during the big fight in the afternoon of September 29 at the CMM Quadrangle.

      Jagna Mayor Exuperio Lloren, a sports-minded himself, poured full support to the amateur boxing bouts as part of the municipal government's sports promotion program.

      Fielding boxing heroes were the nearby towns of Garcia-Hernandez, Duero, Guindulman and Talibon.

      The neighboring towns submitted three entries to fight the four-round blow combat. The whole card was played by 12 pairs including the single main event card.

      In the first match, Ronald Castrodes took on Romano Galig of Talibon, while Robert Awitin defeated William Caseñas of Tejero, Jagna in the second fight.

      Malou Talili of Guindulman also outpointed Melchor Abecede of Taytay, Duero in the next match.

      Jome Abinomen of Garcia-Hernandez failed to outpunch Dodong Nueva of Pangdan, Jagna.

      Steve Llido of Odiong, Jagna was up versus his fellow Jagnaanon, Aljun Acebes.

      In the sixth match Gary Salan of Odiong, Jagna outscored Janro Lloren of T-Monte, Jagna.

      In the next fight, Joseph Cuadra of barangay Cantagay outmatched Robert Salamanoa of Pagina Seawall.

      A Guindulmanon, Hector Rejoca succumbed to Aierl Acojero of Tejero, Jagna.

      In the main event which was strongly contested by Samuel "Flash" Galinato, the hot flyweight sensation of Guindulman exploded his left-right combination in the third and fourth round strongly that toppled down Alvin "Pacman" Edqueland of Mabini.
