Malungkot na inanunsyo ng Association of Boxing Alliances in the Philippines (ABAP) ang pagpanaw Linggo ng umaga ni former national boxer Genebert Basadre ng Cagayan de Oro City sa edad na 35-nang mag-collapse nitong April 19 at ma-coma kinabukasan sa Polymedic Plaza Hospital.
“ He was so young and was dedicated, soft-spoken and well-liked. The news is startling, to say the least,” ani ABAP secretary general Edgar Genaro ‘Ed’ Picson sa 2006 Doha Asian Games bronze medalist at 2005 PH Southeast Asian Games gold sa men’s welterweight.
NIlisan ni Basadre ang ABAP noong 2010 para tahakin ang pagiging sundalo ng Army. (Ramil Cruz)
