EUMIR Marcial continues to enhance his combat skills as he prepares for the formidable challenges ahead as a national boxer.

Setting aside his unbeaten professional career, Marcial is now deeply focused training for the Paris Olympics, which is less than 100 days away.

“Create your vision, then go beast mode to accomplish it,” said the 28-year-old slugger from Zamboanga City in a social media post.

In Paris, he will face bigger and taller opponents in the men’s light heavyweight class.

“The only way to get ahead is to push yourself beyond your limits. It’s time to push, and it’s time for more improvement,” Marcial said.

Transitioning from the middleweight class, where he won a bronze medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Marcial is now gearing up mentally and physically to compete in the light heavyweight division.

Currently, Marcial and other national boxers are in Thailand for an intensive training camp. They are honing their conditioning, skills, and sparring techniques.

On Monday, Marcial performed well in sparring sessions against boxers from Spain and the Dominican Republic at the Sports Au- thority of Thailand facility in Bangkok.

Feeling motivated, he posted, “In the midst of an ordinary training day, I try to remind myself that I’m preparing for the extraordinary.”

Marcial achieved a significant milestone at the 19th Asian Games on Wednesday. Moving to the 80kg class after his middle- weight division was removed from the Paris Olympics, he secured an Olympic slot by bagging a silver medal at the Asian Games in Hangzhou, China, in October last year.
