It seems that Bacolod City Mayor Monico O. Puentevella is true to his pronouncement that when he is elected as chief executive "more sports" will flourish. It only needs organization and the right person to handle.
It started with boxing; amateur and professional. Thanks to both Games and Amusement Board (GAB) Chairman Juan Ramon "Monju" Guanzon and Bacoleño, now Cebu-based ALA Stable and Promotions patriarch Antonio Aldeguer. These two persons were so close with Puentevella, as Aldeguer was their basketball coach before.
Monju, whose love for boxing started when he headed the Negros Amateur Boxing Association (NABA) made it more realistic when he head the government agency that oversees all professional games and gambling in the country. He is behind the promotion of the first boxing held last Sunday at BAYS Center with Monico Amateur Boxing development program and ALA-Cobra "Tunay na Lakas" boxing tournament. Monju, for all you know, bankrolled the initial holding of the tournament Sunday. He made it a point that boxing will be held three times every month for three years. The GAB Chairman himself made this assurance; without doubt, he is in authority to do so both in amateur and professional boxing. MY ONLY REQUEST TO ORGANIZERS, TO SEE TO IT THAT the tournament can start early so it will end early and those going home can have access to transportation and for covering sports journalists to beat their deadline so that they will not be left HUNGRY.

AIBA, the International Boxing Association is facing many obstacles when it holds tournaments in the Philippines. This is because Games and Amusement Board (GAB) chairman Juan Ramon "Monju" Guanzon is bent on charging them professional or sanction fees.
GAB, created under Executive Order No. 392 series of 1953 and is charged with supervision and regulation of professional sports and combating and preventing the proliferation of illegal bookie joints and other illegal forms of gambling in professional sports and amusement games. GAB shall exercise supervision and regulation over the operation and conduct of professional sports and their activities in order to maintain orderly, honest and fair conduct of games; provide protection to the betting public and patrons; practicing licensees in the professional sports concerned; and make professional sports activities a stable base for revenue generation.
Unless AIBA heed these guidelines of GAB, they have a conflict with holding any boxing tournament in the Philippines which fall under their AIBA Professional Boxing (APB) and World Series Boxing (WSB). I say this, because AIBA is not keen on following GAB policy and even compete with GAB in issuing licensees to referees and judges. Every one in GAB cannot understand how AIBA under its president Dr. Chin Kuo Wu come up with new adaption of professional format and not stick to amateur. Of all wonders, Guanzon echoed how the ABAP (Association of Boxing Alliances of the Philippines, Inc.) formerly Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines (ABAP) came up with this format to heed what AIBA wanted which they see it preventing amateur boxers to become professional in other boxing organizations but remain under AIBA.
