Uzbekistan’s Nigina Uktamova arrived to the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships as the main favourite of the women’s bantamweight (54kg) and she realized her golden dreams in Kielce. Uktamova robbed into the world of boxing when she won the gold medal at the Fujairah 2019 ASBC Asian Junior Boxing Championships. The 17-year-old eliminated Russia’s Anastasia Kirienko in the semi-finals and in the final she had difficulties in the first round against Ukraine’s Khrystyna Lakiichuk. Her European opponent used her long distance tactic in the first round well but after that Uktamova changed her rhythm and turned back the contest delivering Uzbekistan’s historical gold in the women’s level.
Uktamova is the first gold medalist of AIBA Youth World Boxing Chempionship among the Uzbek boxers.
