Ladon, Maamo to Germany for AIBA World tournament

As their teammates focus on winning a lowly regional competition, two other members of the national boxing squad are neck-deep in training for an event whose level of play is just a shade below the Olympics.

Light-flyweight Rogen Ladon and fly Dannel Maamo are currently in China alongside six other standouts of the Association of Boxing Alliances of the Philippines (ABAP).

Ladon and Maamo are going to be dispatched by the ABAP to the world championships in Europe, set Aug. 25 to Sept. 3 in the German port city of Hamburg.

Just about the same time Ladon and Maamo are packing their bags, light-fly Carlo Paalam, fly Ian Clark Bautista, bantam Mario Fernandez, light-welter Charly Suarez, middle Eumir Felix Marcial and Fil-British light-heavy John Marvin would be in the thick of the action in the 29th Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Marcial was supposed to join Ladon and Maamo after earning his ticket during the Asian championships last April but he was asked to fight instead in the SEAG as the country is out to defend the overall title in the sport.

Ladon is the most pressured among the two as he is out to duplicate or even surpass his bronze medal finish two years ago in Doha, Qatar.
