NAVAL, Biliran – Salatiel Amit, a native of this town, never failed the thousand of his fellow Navalenos who watched live at the jampacked Naval Gymnasium, as he bagged the championship belt in the bantamweight division of the Philippine Boxing Federation (PBF).
Amit, a resident of Sitio Lomboy in Barangay Calumpang, knocled down (pangalan sa kontra) in the second round of the PBF boxing championship held this town.
The boxing championship fight is the first professional boxing fight held in this town.
The first professional boxing fight is one of the crowd-drawing sports activities brought in by Naval Mayor Gerard Roger M. Espina to the public, aside from the equally crowd-drawing volleyball and basketball events held also at the Naval Gymnasium.
The staging of sports events is one of the crowd-drawers held in line with the town’s fiesta celebration in honor of the Patroness, Nuestra Senora Virgen Del Rosario on October 5-6, 2018. – BiliranIsland.com
