The defending champion Abdumalik Khalokov had a strong rival Brazil’s Laion Martinelli Duraes Souza at the men’s bantamweight (56kg). But Khalokov overcame his South American rival in the attacks and this time he used his strength. The referee counted Souza in the first round twice and confirmed Khalokov’s quick RSC success in Budapest which means Asia bagged another guaranteed medal.
At the Middleweight (75kg), Navo Tamazov launched better punches than Armenian Rafael Xovhanisyan Rafael Hovhannisyan and his strong performance delivered for him a place in the final.
Samandar Kholmuradov (52kg), Asadkhuja Muydinkhujaev (60kg), Jahongir Rahmonov (69kg) and temur Merjanov (81kg) were finished their AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships campaign in quarterfinals.
