Triumphant Pinoy boxers honored by Senate
Filipino boxers Jerwin Ancajas and Mark Magsayo received recognition from the Senate after winning their respective bouts.
Ancajas retained the International Boxing Federation (IBF) Junior Bantamweight title last November 18 at SSE Arena in Belfast, Ireland.
Magsayo earned the victory over Shota Hayashi of Japan to win the World Boxing Organization International featherweight belt last Nov. 25 in Tagbilaran, Bohol.
Two separate resolutions have been filed to commend the two boxers from “bringing prestige to our country”.
