Melligen beats another Mexican,
scores 2nd round TKO in Mexico

A knockdown in the opening round and another one in the second that prompted the referee to stop the fight. It was not a replay of the Manny Pacquiao-Ricky Hatton fight, instead, it was between Bacolod City’s very own son Mark Jason Melligen against Mexican veteran Fabian “El Lobo” Luque right in the latter’s very own home turf, Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico.

“Very impressive. Another Ilonggo-speaking boxer fighting like a veteran,” ALA Boxing Gym’s boss Tony Aldeguer told the DAILY STAR yesterday.

He said everyone in ALA was happy about Melligen’s victory and he has always believed in the Bacoleño’s potential.

Philippine teen footballers
quarantined in Singapore

SINGAPORE – Singapore has quarantined 19 members of a Philippine youth football team after one player tested positive for swine flu ahead of a regional sports competition, officials said yesterday.

The 17 players and two coaches were brought to a beach resort set up to isolate foreigners for quarantine purposes, and strict checks are to be carried out on all incoming participants in the Asian Youth Games.

They were brought to the beach resort on Saturday and would be there for seven days, Alvin Hang, spokesman for the games' organizing committee, said.
