Former World Boxing Council-Asian Boxing Council featherweight champion Alvin Tam, the only active Filipino boxer in Canada, stopped his Mexican opponent via fourth-round technical knockout in Calgary last weekend.

The 33-year-old Tam electrified the crowd, especially Filipino-Canadians, when he dropped Arturo Garcia Lujano in their lightweight bout at the Grey Eagle Resort and Casino.

Tam, who has been residing in Canada since 2014 with his mestiza wife from Buguias, Benguet, improved his professional boxing record to 14, wins with four coming by way of knockout, and six losses.

The impressive win over the Mexican boxer was redemption to Tam, who suffered a back-to-back loss in his first and second bouts since he migrated to Canada.

He was first defeated by Roody Pierce Paul via unanimous decision in October 2015 then suffered another defeat in the hands of Jesus Perez via a controversial split decision in Oct. 2017.

Before migrating to Canada, Tam has an impressive boxing career in the country.

He won the vacant Philippine Boxing Federation featherweight title against Jayvee Alipio in February 2012.

He likewise captured the WBC-ABC continental featherweight belt against JR Edurot in December 2012.

Tam’s father, Rey, is a household name in the Cordillera during his glory days in Baguio being one of the most prolific counter-punchers in his era.

His father hung up his gloves in 1982 with an illustrious professional boxing record of 36 wins, nine losses, and one draw.
