Reduction of Gold Medal

The Philippines should have tallied a total of 91 gold medals but one of the gold medals from boxing was proclaimed unofficial. The said gold medal should have been fought by our Filipino boxer against a Thai boxer but the Thai boxer was found positive in the doping tests. The gold medal was, at first, given to Philippines but after a few days, the SEAG Organizing Committee declared that there will be no gold and silver medalists for the said event in boxing because there was no battle fought. They had forgiven the Thai boxer.
