Paalam wins gold

CAGAYAN de Oro City’s Carlo Paalam defeated Askhat Zhusupov in the 49-kilo light flyweight finals to prevent host country Kazakhstan boxers from sweeping the 5th President’s Cup International Boxing Tournament in Astana, Kazakhstan last Sunday.

The 19-year-old Paalam was the lone foreign entry to win a gold medal by beating the crowd favorite Zhusupov on points, denying Kazakhstan from winning all 13 gold medals in the event that was participated in by 113 male and female boxers from 10 countries.
