The Freddie Roach Formula To Olympic Glory

I've always wondered why the country never considered Freddie Roach as its foreign amateur boxing coach instead of the Cuban coaches we always hire. It proved that those Cubans never really helped, aside from Onyok Velasco's silver in Atlanta, but aside from that, they weren't really much of a help.

I think I read some great news while reading The Philippine Star earlier today about Freddie Roach training an 18-year old Fil-Am for the 2012 London Olympics.After what Roach did to our prized Manny Pacquiao, this welcome development would only make us Filipinos hoping and exciting about a potential Olympic glory in London.

Julian Santos Chua is a senior at Jefferson High Schol in Lafayette, Indiana, and won the state Golden Gloves championship last March. Since bagging the Golden Gloves crown, the 5-9 Chua has won six in a row, including a bout against the previous year’s Indiana Golden Gloves titlist in a showdown of champions.

The kid is serious about 2012 Olympics that plans have been made for him to attend college in Southern California. The Wild Card Gym of Freddie Roach is in Los Angeles.

Hopefully, this kid would be the answer to our long Olympic drought. I don't care if a non-Filipino would help us get that gold. We should be thankful for men like Freddie Roach. And as for this Julian Santos Chua, I will be keeping an eye on you.

We expect you to create a big bang come 2012 London Olympics.
