GAB ready to reinstate Calvin Abueva’s pro license

After serving 486 days of suspension, Calvin Abueva now has a chance to get his professional license back.

The Games and Amusement Board has decided to give the 32-year-old forward a chance to be a pro again if he fulfills two conditions.

First, he has to go through a seminar tackling “The Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards of a Professional Athlete” and sign that he will abide by it.

Since Abueva is already in the PBA’s Clark bubble, the seminar can take place online.

Secondly, he has to undergo the mandatory drug test as part of the medical requirements.

The PBA has the capability to do drug testing.

The decision came about after a board meeting by the agency, Friday morning.

During the meeting, the board decided that Abueva has been “remorseful in what he did and was sincere enough to accept his wrongdoings.”

Moreover, “he apologized with a promise that he won’t repeat the same mistake.”

Being a professional, Abueva has also realized that he should be a good role model to the public.

Back on June 4, 2020, Abueva received an indefinite suspension due to “violent behavior or unsportsmanlike conduct.”

He was also meted a PHP 70,000 fine.
