HANGZHOU, China – The national men’s boxing team suffered its first casualty in Aaron Jude Bado, who lost his debut fight in the 19th Asian Games on Monday at the Hangzhou gymnasium.

Bado went down against Thitisan Panmot of Thailand in a 51 kg match that ended in an RSC-L (Referee Stopped Contest-Injury) in the second round.

The Filipino suffered a huge cut on his left eyebrow that prompted ring official to stop the fight with 16 seconds remaining in the round.

“Naputukan sa kilay. Medyo mahaba,” said coach Ronald Chavez of the injury suffered by Bado, a gold medal winner in the Asian U22 Boxing Championship early this year, but fighting in his first Asiad campaign.

He was the first member of the men’s team to bow out of contention as Olympian Eumir Marcial and Mark Ashley Fajardo won their respective opening round matches on Monday.

In all, Bado is the third Filipino boxer to fall by the wayside after Aira Villegas and another Olympian in Irish Magno.

Still to see action for Team Philippines are Olympic silver medal winner Carlo Paalam, Marjon Pianar, and John Marvin.
