Cordillera - While many of us here in Cordillera were upset when our 'kailyan' Joshua Pacio lost his title to Yosuke Saruta in the main event of ONE: Eternal Glory last Saturday, our Kailyan in Canada were celebrating a huge win from Alvin Tam, an Igorot professional boxer based in Canada.

Tam scored a fourth round knockout victory against Mexican Rutlio Romero in the undercard of the Dekada Contender Card at the Deerfoot Inn & Casino in Calgary, Canada.

Alvin Tam is a former WBC Asian champion and  the son of legendary Igorot boxer Rey Tam from Kapangan, Benguet. Alvin is an all action fighter who comes for the knockout in every fight. He fought on the road and was given losses that motivated him to train more.

His recent fight had proved him that he is going to excel in his boxing career as he came out victorious via knockout in the 4th round. That win gave him his 2nd straight victory since moving to Canada in 2015.
He arrived in Canada in 2015, found a gym and waste no time to trained hard. With the strong support of the Filipino community in Canada and his team Bowmont Boxing Club, Tam has became one of the most exciting fighter in the world.

According to Dekada, Alvin's style is exciting and reminiscent of the great Mexican fighters like Barrera and Marquez.
