Proud tatay! Mayor Oca Moreno poses with flyweight boxer John Pangga


One proud tatay to his gold-medalist bata!

City Mayor Oscar Moreno gave props to one of his proteges, young athlete John Vincent Pangga. The young amateur boxer from Cagayan de Oro City emerged successful during the ASBC Asian Juniors Boxing Championships held at Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.

The 14-year old flyweight John Vincent Pangga paid a courtesy call Monday, September 4 to the Politiko along with his mother and RP junior boxing team coach Elmer Pamisa.

The boxer, who’s a product of Mayor Oca’s amateur boxing development program, defeated the bet from Thailand which won him a gold medal. Prior to the finals, Pangga outmaneuvered bets from Uzbekistan, United Arab Emirates and Kazakhstan during the earlier rounds.
