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.
