SEA Games 2019: Eumir Marcial s win was for teammate John Marvin, and for all Filipinos

Filipin-British boxer John Marvin found himself on the losing end of a Split Decision result against Vietnam's Hoang Truong Dinh in the second day of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games Boxing competitions, Thursday at the PICC Forum Tent in Manila.  Marvin, the Philippines' light heavyweight, was dropped in the opening round by a well-timed counter overhand-right, and was playing catch up to the Vietnamese pug from that point. While Marvin did a lot better in the second and third rounds, it wasn't enought to sway the judges' decision as he bowed out of the tournament, unable to defend his gold medal from the 2017 SEA Games.  While it was definitely a heartbreaking loss for Marvin, he was still all smiles as he greeted fans on his way out of the competition area.  Someone who wasn't able to contain his emotions however, was Marvin's teammate and Pinoy middleweight bet Eumir Marcial.  Marcial could not hold his tears back as he came to console his fallen teammate after the loss.  The following day, it was Marcial's turn to take to the ring, and he didn't disappoint, making short work of Malaysian Azmi Mohd Aswan Che. Marcial needed just one round to defeat Che and move on to the finals of the Men's Middleweight division.  Following his spectacular win, the AIBA World Championships silver medalist explained just why he was extremely emotional following Marvin's loss.  "Sobrang close kami, lahat ng pag-hihirap namin, magkasama kami, yung training namin, talagang binigay namin yung blood, yung disiplina namin, yung hard work namin dito, para dito sa SEA Games," Marcial told the media.  "Nasaktan ako, nalungkot ako sa nangyari sa kanya, especially nung nalaman ko na kaya pala siya hindi maka-suntok kasi sobrang maga nung kamay niya. Nung first round pa lang, maga na yung kamay niya. Sabi ko kahit na na-knockdown siya, maka-bawi naman siya eh, kasi nung training andun yung, talagang gusto niyang makuha yung gold, kaya sabi ko bawi na lang sa second round pero nakita namin, lahat nating mga Pilipino na hindi siya maka-suntok ulit, so sa lahat, may injury siya, maga yung kamay niya," he continued.  With his fallen teammate in mind, Marcial came into his bout and delivered, dedicating the win to Marvin, the rest of his team, and the rest of the Filipino people.  "Sabi ko, itong game na 'to, kasi hindi siya nakakuha ng medal, so, hindi lang 'to para sa akin, hindi lang 'to para sa Pilipino, para sa amin din ito, kasi hard work namin, yung pagsasma namin, lahat. Kumbaga alam namin yung isa't-isa, kaya naging emotional ako nung natalo siya." With Marcial one more win away from a third-straight gold medal in the SEA Games, the Zamboanga-native calls for support from the Filipino people. "Hinihingi namin lahat, ng Philippine Boxing Team na suportahan niyo kami, manood kayo sa laban namin, i-cheer niyo kami, kasi we win as one naman eh. Yung panalo namin ay panalo din niyo.".....»»

SEA Games: Gilas rolls to semis after taking down Vietnam

MANILA — Even Vietnam’s rebuilt national team was no match to Gilas Pilipinas. The Philippines is through to the semifinals of 5x5 basketball in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, winning an impressive 110-69 decision Friday at the MOA Arena. Gilas is now 2-0 as its gold medal bid continues at home. Vietnam brought perhaps its best national team in years with a handul of Vietnamese-American players. Early results proved such as Vietnam won its first two games. However, Gilas’ superior firepower would prevail and the Philippines turned a manageable 12-point game at the break into a 41-point blowout. Five-time PBA Most Valuable Player June Mar Fajardo showed up for Gilas, leading the national team with 23 points and 12 rebounds. After June Mar, five others scored in double figures for the Philippines with LA Tenorio and Vic Manuel adding 14 each. Troy Rosario was good for 12 points. Vietnam, playing its third game in three days, got 28 points from Chris Dierker.   The Scores: PHILIPPINES 110 -- Fajardo 23, Tenorio 14, Manuel 14, Rosario 12, Pringle 11, Slaughter 10, Wright 7, Lassiter 6, Aguilar 6, Ravena 5, Ross 1, Standhardinger 1. VIETNAM 69 -- Dierker 28, Young 13, Tran 7, Le 6, T. Dinh 5, H. Nguyen 4, S. Dinh 3, Vo 2, Du 1, T. Nguyen 0, S. Nguyen 0. Quarters: 27-19, 52-40, 80-57, 110-69.     — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

SEA Games: Gilas has Vietnam next in big prelims showdown

MANILA — After starting the 2019 Southeast Asian Games with a 52-point drubbing of Singapore, Gilas Pilipinas is ready move forward through the preliminary stage. The Philippine national team will certainly keep its focus, as anything short of a gold medal here will be a monumental disaster. Up next for Gilas Pilipinas is Vietnam and the Vietnamese have been impressive so far, entering Friday’s clash with a clean 2-0 mark. Vietnam was Cone’s mystery team almost a week before the SEA Games and looks like Coach Tim’s early hunch was right. [Related: SEA Games: Gilas wary of unknown Vietnam] These Vietnamese are good. “We scouted Vietnam today against Myanmar, and they have six really good athletes on their team,” Cone said. “They're gonna be a much stronger opponent,” he added. The Philippines is the heavy favorites to win a 13th straight gold medal in the SEA Games. Gilas Pilipinas also sent a powerhouse crew, going all-PBA this time int he biennial event. However, as Gilas looks to dominate, proper mindset is still key. It’s much easier to underestimate an opponent and doing that opens you up for a historic upset. “We wanna make sure that we're coming out and we're respecting the game, that we're playing the game the right way, that we are respecting our opponents. You didn't see a lot of fooling around. We don't want our guys fooling around,” Cone said. “We're gonna try to play the game the right way. That's very important to us, to represent the country. We want people going back to their respective homes and saying wow, that team played with a lot of class. That's really been uppermost in our minds. Obviously, we wanna win too,” he added. Gilas Pilipinas vs. Vietnam, a crucial match to pretty much decide rankings for the next round, will tip off at the MOA Arena at 8:15 p.m. Friday.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
