HERE’S a good news for boxing enthusiasts.
The ‘Ramble sa Misor’ boxing stable is keen on scouting and developing young and promising boxing talents in the locality.
“Once we could find and develop boxing jewels in the grassroots level, the province of Misamis Oriental will then find a way to possibly send them to the Olympic Games in 2012,” said MisOr’s boxing director, Engineer Dan Jamolin of his highly ambitious goal.
Jamolin told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro that the province has a stable of around 40 budding kids ready to showcase their boxing skills in a national event “that we’ll be hosting next year (Jan. 22-28)” before the Olympics.
For aspiring boxers willing to be trained, Jamolin said former Olympian Bobby Jalnaiz and his fellow MisOr coaches and trainers would prefer children at the gym ages 11 to 19 years old.
They will be afforded with free accommodation, food and allowances.
“We are still accepting interested applicants for them to start their boxing career,” he said.
Ramble sa MisOr gym is located just at the back of the Cagayan de Oro City Water District building.
Jamolin said the gym regularly features boxing matches among the youngsters during the first and last Friday of the month.
