2020 Tokyo Olympics

Riza Pasuit succumbs to Chinese foe, drops out of OQT

Riza Pasuit’s bid for an Olympic berth ended Tuesday (Manila time), as she lost to top seed Shih-Yi Wu of Chinese Taipei via a unanimous decision in the 2020 Asia and Oceania Olympic Boxing Qualifiers at the Prince Hamzeh Hall, Sport City in Amman, Jordan.

Pasuit had to eke out a split decision win over Saya Hamamoto last March 5 to advance to the next round. In contrast, Wu had a bye to the women’s lightweight quarterfinals as a result of being the top seed.

And being fresh proved to be the difference in the bout.

Wu, who already had a huge reach advantage over Pasuit, jabbed her way to victory in all three rounds. Pasuit, on the other hand, only had a few good moments in the lopsided bout.

So far, only middleweight Eumir Marcial has advanced to the Tokyo Olympics.

Carlo Paalam and Irish Magno still have a chance to do so if either of them wins the box-off.
