Uzbekistan's Hasanboy Dusmatov claims gold medal in the World Cup of Petroleum Countries
Uzbekistan’s boxers have been continuing their participation in the International Tournament World Cup of Petroleum Countries, which has been being held in Beloyarsky, Russia since November 22.
Olympic Gold medallist and the Best Elite Boxer of the Year 2016 Hasanboy Dusmatov changed his weight category from Light Flyweight (49 kg) to Flyweight (52 kg) in this tournament. However, changing his weight didn’t affect his victorious campaign as he claimed a gold medal.
In the semi-finals, Dusmatov stunned Russian Artur Lozhnikov by unanimous decision before he faced Artur Jaaev from Russian Federation in the final bout. The last bout was ended with a unanimous-decision win for Uzbek boxer as he was awarded gold medal in the International Tournament World Cup of Petroleum Countries.
