Five more Philippine fighters are set to vie for the gold following their semifinal wins in the 30th Southeast Asian Games boxing competitions Sunday at the PICC Forum in Pasay City.

Two-time SEA Games gold medalist Charly Suarez has a chance to snag another men’s lightweight gold, as the former Olympian won unanimously over Dat Vu Thanh of Vietnam.

2015 SEA Games men’s light flyweight silver medalist Rogen Ladon defeated Mohamed Hamid of Singapore via unanimous decision as well, to head to the flyweight finals.

James Palicte, who fought in the World Boxing Championships last September, took down Thai foe Atichai Phoemsap via split decision to advance to the men’s light welterweight finals.

The women’s team also made a mark. Irish Magno is bound for the women’s flyweight finals following a split decision victory over the much-taller Jitpong Jutamas of Thailand.

Riza Pasuit earned a split decision win over Indonesia’s Huswatun Hashanah en route to the women’s lightweight finals.

With such a successful showing, a total of 10 Filipino fighters will fight for gold in the tilt’s final day on Monday.

Josie Gabuco, Carlo Paalam, and Eumir Marcial already clinched their spots last Friday. Meanwhile, women’s featherweight bet Nesthy Petecio and welterweight Marjon Piañar will see action tomorrow.
