Nesthy Petecio talked about how she handled the hostile crowd as she faced Russia's Liudmila Vorontsove in Ulan-Ude city in their gold medal match in the 2019 AIBA Women's World Championships.

"Kabado po ako. Pero nu'ng nasa taas ako ng ring tapos sumisigaw na 'yung mga nanonood doon, inangat ko ang kamay ko at inisip ko na 'Sige, isigaw n'yo pangalan ko.' Iyon ang iniisip ko," Petecio said in an interview on "Gametime" Thursday.

Petecio said she now targets success in the coming Southeast Asian Games and Asian Games. She is also targeting a berth in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. -- Gametime, ANC, Oct. 16, 2019
