Ever since the round of 16, Rogen Ladon has been fighting with a cut on his right eyebrow. But another one led to his downfall.
In the finals of the flyweight division, the 24-year-old was dealt a referee’s stoppage loss to Uzbekistan’s Jasurbek Latipov in the second round, 1-3, Saturday afternoon at the JIExpo – Hall C in Jakarta, Indonesia.
With this, the Philippines’ medal tally is at four golds, two silvers, and 15 bronzes.
The stoppage came in the second round, as the 24-year-old native of Bago, Negros Occidental suffered another cut that came from an accidental clash of heads. The referee deemed that the blood would interfere with his vision the rest of the way, forcing the stoppage.
Three of the judges scored the bout in favor of the Uzbek, 20-18. Hermanto Ginting Bagusmunthe of Indonesia scored it 20-18 in favor of the Filipino. The last judge had it knotted at 19-all.
The eight-strong Philippine National Boxing Team ended its campaign with a haul of one silver and two bronzes – one bronze shy of the team back in 2014 that saw Charly Suarez lose a controversial gold medal match, while Mario Fernandez, Wilfredo Lopez, and Mark Anthony Barriga brought home bronze.
