A group of Cebuano boxing officials filed a petition to oust Games and Amusements Board (GAB) Chief of Boxing Chairman Dr. Nasser Cruz from his office because of alleged corruption.

International boxing judge Edward Ligas, along with referees Tony Pesons and Edgar Olalo, and ring physician Dr. Jose Unabia held a press conference Wednesday morning at the Abuhan Tres, Cebu City to announce their petition against Cruz.

“We want to stop the illegal and immoral abuse of Dr. Cruz. We already asked for his transfer to other division and gave him due process but nothing happened, so we decided to publicize our petition so that action will be taken immediately,” said Ligas.

GAB chairman Abraham Mitra and other Cebu GAB officials have set a dialogue with local boxing promoters at the GAB Cebu City office on Saturday before Pinoy Pride 39 boxing event at the Cebu Coliseum to talk about the matter.
