Philippine Olympic Boxer Harry Tañamor Will Not Bring Home The Gold
The press release on Philippine Olympic Boxer Harry Tañamor was that he was the best bet of the Philippines to win a gold medal. However, it looks like the hype on Harry Tañamor can be put to rest as he lost in his first fight against boxer Manyo Plange from Ghana.
Tañamor lost 6-3 on points and got eliminated from the competition. According to reports, Harry Tañamor cried. Naturally, it must’ve been a heart-breaking experience, especially since many considered him as a strong contender to win an Olympic medal. Oh well. One more disappointment for the Philippines.
I don’t want to expound on this anymore. It’s so disheartening to write about yet another loss for the Philippines. Of course, I give Harry a pat on the back. Thanks for representing the country and doing your best. I’m just sad. Harry was the strongest contender for an Olympic gold medal, and now that he’s out, so what’s next? Do we still have a shot, or should we hang up the gloves?
