One of the anticipated bouts between ASBC Asian Junior Boxing Championships bronze medallist Jakhonmurod Imamaliyev and ASBC Asian Junior Champion Jakhongir Narziyev is realized after four days of boxing.
Following the Zolotarev Memorial Tournament, the next highlight in the country’s boxing life is the Uzbekistan Junior National Championships. The number of the entered boxers is 338 in Tashkent where the most popular categories are the light bantamweight (52kg), the featherweight (57kg) and the lightweight (60kg).
Boxers who were born in 2004 and in 2005 are eligible to attend in the upcoming Uzbekistan Junior National Championships. The Universal Sport Complex will be the venue of the new national event in Tashkent where all of the Uzbek regions and cities are planning to send their best junior talents.
Besides to the official 13 junior weight classes in the international stage, two more categories have been added to the official schedule of the Uzbekistan Junior National Championships. These are the 42kg and the 44kg divisions which meant that 15 champions will be crowned on October 27 when the finals are scheduled.
Andizhan’s ASBC Asian Schoolboys Champion Umidillo Abdurasulov is only 15-year-old but he is one of the main favourites of the light bantamweight (52kg) in the Uzbekistan Junior National Championships. Abdurasulov has put on nearly 10kg of muscles to his body in comparison to the Kuwait City 2019 ASBC Asian Schoolboys Boxing Championships. Abdurasulov eliminated Namangan’s Sokhibjon Oymirzayev in the last 16 and will be meeting with Tashkent’s Umid Boltayev in the next stage.
Surkhondarya’s ASBC Asian Schoolboys Champion Jakhongir Narziyev is spending his first year in the junior age group. The 15-year-old featherweight (57kg) boxer bowed out Tashkent’s Azizbek Rustamov with top performance in the event. Narziyev will be meeting now with Andizhan’s ASBC Asian Junior Boxing Championships bronze medallist Jakhonmurod Imamaliyev who eliminated Tashkent region’s Ganibek Muratkasimov in a one-sided bout. The Narziyev vs. Imamaliyev battle could be one of the best contests in the next stage of the event. Tashkent’s Schoolboys National Champion Khusanboy Rikhsiboyev was involved to the international events in 2019 and claimed bronze medal in Kuwait City. The 15-year-old boxer moved up to the heavyweight (+80kg) but he had enough skills to beat Tashkent region’s Nurmukhammad Dekhkonov in a top bout of the category. Rikhsiboyev will be boxing for the guaranteed medal with Namangan’s Elyorbek Joraboyev in Tashkent.
