CEBU City’s Alan Refuela pulled off not just the team’s first gold medal, but the tournament’s first major upset in the 2012 PLDT-Abap National Finals in Bohol last Sunday.

Refuela, a veteran campaigner in the national competitions, pulled a surprising 18-8 win over Bohol’s best and two-time National Youth Team member and last year’s national gold medal winner Gino Cabugnan of Tagbilaran City in the elite flyweight division match.

Meanwhile, Mandaue City’s Kevin Jake Cataraja lived up to his billing as he advanced to the next round after scoring a Referee-Stopped Contest-Outclass win over General Santos City’s Vergel Deguma in the second round for the boy’s flyweight class on the opening day.


Joining Cataraja in the finals was Bryan Remedio, who survived Quezon City’s Jessie Diaz via a countback after tying 5-5 after the three-round encounter for the boys’ light flyweight class. Dannlou Codilla also advanced after whipping Misamis Oriental’s Nike Jun Guinaadman via 12-5 decision in the elite flyweight division.
