MANILA, Philippines – Boxing analyst Ronnie Nathanielsz said AIBA, the international governing body of amateur boxing, should have at least reviewed the loss of Filipino boxer Mark Anthony Barriga against Kazakhstan’s Birzhan Zhakypov.

Nathenielsz said it was highly suspicious of the boxing body to have easily dismissed the protest filed by the Amateur Boxing Federation of the Philippines. -- Dateline Philippines, ANC, August 6, 2012.
