Cagayan de Oro Boxer Wins Gold in World Series Boxing in Russia


Carlo Paalam
Cagayan de Oro City’s boxing pride and RP national team member Carlo Paalam outsmarted his Korean opponent, a 2014 Asian Games gold medalist, to capture the gold medal during yesterday’s championship bout in the 2018 World Series Boxing in Russia.

Paalam made his way to the top after defeating the top bet of Russia Team A in the quarterfinals, 5-0, and outboxed another Korean boxer in the semifinals, 4-1.

Team CdeO boxing head coach Elmer Pamisa attributed Paalam’s success in his overseas campaign to the sustainable grassroots amateur boxing development program of Mayor Oscar Moreno which already produced top caliber, world-class boxers of the country.
