Eumir Marcial advances to Asian Elite semis via forfeit

Eumir Marcial literally did not break a sweat in his middleweight quarterfinals bout in the 2021 Asian Elite Men’s and Women’s Boxing Championships held at the Grand Ballroom of the Le Meridien Hotel in Dubai, UAE, Wednesday evening (Manila time).

Marcial’s opponent Mongolia’s Otgonbaatar Byamba-Erdene forfeited the bout that resulted in a walkover victory for the Filipino.

Byamba-Erdene defeated Iraq’s Ridha Talib Jabbar last Tuesday to advance to the round.

Marcial, who has a guaranteed bronze, will now face Uzbekistan’s Saidjamshid Jafarov in the semis. Jafarov earlier defeated Kyrgyzstan’s Omurbek Bekzhigit Uulu.

Meanwhile, lightweight Jere Samuel Dela Cruz bid his medal hopes goodbye. He suffered a lopsided unanimous decision loss against India’s Varinder Singh, 27-30×5, in the quarterfinals of the division.

Women’s light flyweight top seed Josie Gabuco steps on the ring tonight as she takes on Uzbekistan’s Gulasal Sultonalieva in the semifinals of the division. Sultonalieva defeated Sri Lanka’s Rashmika Ilangarathna two days ago.
