Rio Olympian Suarez steps up bid

Rio Olympics campaigner Charly Suarez attempts to fast-track his climb to world title contention again as he battles veteran Carlo Magali today at the Elorde Sports Center in Paranaque.

On the line is the World Boxing Association super-featherweight title as well as the Philippine championship that will have Nowel Haduca as referee and Greg Ortega, Gil Co and Gerald Bassig as the judges.

Now 34, Suarez’s quest to break into the world’s top 15 is being spearheaded by Delfin Boholst. his former pal in the national team who acts as his lead trainer.

Armed with a 12-0 record with seven knockouts, Suarez is favored to hurdle past Magali but his camp is not taking any chances.

Magali is a seasoned internationalist and has what it takes to ruin the plans of Suarez and Boholst.

Though still a newcomer in the pro ranks, Suarez has a wealth of experience during his amateur days.

He is a three-time Southeast Asian Games gold medalist and 2014 Incheon Asian Games runnerup.

During his long career in the amateurs, Suarez even fought Vasyl Lomachenko, regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound boxers today.
