Pertina expels 5 boxers from training

JAKARTA (JP): The Indonesian Amateur Boxing Association (Pertina) expelled five boxers from its 2001 Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian (SEA) Games training program at the Ragunan sports school early this month.

Antara reported on Thursday that the Pertina head of the technical commission, Ferry Moniaga, declined to state the reasons for expelling the athletes, but said the decision was made after a plenary meeting with Pertina officials.

The five athletes are flyweight Dedek Chandra, featherweight Benny Mongan, lightweight Thomas Kellyombar, light welterweight Cosmos Awom and welterweight Ade Alfons. (yan)
