Delarmino, Lampacan win SEAG muaythai golds as Jakiri falls to Thai foe

SUBIC — Phillip Delarmino and Ariel Lee Lampacan earned two tough victories respectively to win gold in the 30th Southeast Asian Games’ muaythai competition, Sunday at the Exhibition and Convention Center. 

“Nag-gold tayo ngayon dahil sa pagsisikap natin. Two months training in Thailand ang pinagdaanan namin,” said Delarmino.

Delarmino, the bronze medalist in the 2018 IFMA World Championship, survived a late flurry by Vietnam’s Long Doan Nguyen to rule the 57kg division via unanimous decision, 29-28.

On the other hand, Baguio-native Lampacan bucked a lethargic start to his bout against Sakchai Chamchi, ending the match strong to win via UD (29-28) as well. He emerged as champion of the 54kg weight class.

Ryan Jakiri, Islay Bomogao, and Jenelyn Olsim could not say the same, settling for silver in their respective finals matches.

The most crushing of them all was Jakiri’s loss in the 63.5kg division.

Jakiri, who has been competing in ONE Championship, lost via referee’s stoppage during the second round of his bout against Thailand’s Norapat Khundam.

Figured in a tight clinch with 1:26 left in the second round, the Thai connected on a well-placed knee to the body of Jakiri, resulting in a knockdown. Though the 27-year-old native of Zamboanga City was able to make the count, the referee decided to stop the bout, ruling Jakiri unfit to continue.

Bomogao fell to Thailand’s Ketmanee Chasing via a 29-28 decision in the women’s 45kg division. Meanwhile, Olsim lost via a lopsided decision to Vietnam’s Bui Yen Ly in the 54kg class.
