Three Filipino boxers, here on temporary sports visas, were reported missing or absent without leave (AWOL) from their quarters in Sydney’s southwestern suburb of Liverpool this week.

Junior-lightweight Walrito Paderna, welterweight Jason Oyao, and junior-welterweight Arnel Balicuatro are now being sought by Green Valley police and Australian immigration authorities alerted by their manager Dido Bohol, of Bohol Boxing Stable where the boxers reside with seven others.
