The City Government of Cagayan de Oro recently feted amateur boxer Daniel Maamo who brought home a bronze medal in the just concluded ASBC Asian Elite Men’s Boxing Championships held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. 

The 20-year old Maamo was presented by Acting City Administrator Dionnie Gersana during last Monday’s flagraising ceremony at City Hall. Maamo was a product of City Mayor Oscar Moreno’s successful comprehensive grassroots amateur boxing program and was a consistent Palaro boxing medalist before he became a member of the RP amateur boxing team.

With his bronze medal finish, Maamo will now be competing in the World Boxing Championships to be held in Germany later this year.
