Athletes of Uzbekistan have earned nine gold medals at the Asian Boxing Championship, which ended last week in Tashkent. This allowed them to take the first place in the team event and book 10 tickets for the World Championships due in Germany’s Hamburg.

In addition, Hasanboi Dusmatov was recognized as the best boxer of the tournament. Thus, our country has confirmed its status as the strongest boxing power on the continent. Today, we propose recalling the final matches on the way to this triumph.

The owner of the bronze medal of the Rio Olympic Games in 2016 Murodjon Ahmadaliyev (up to 56 kg) met with the Chinese silver medalist Zhang Jia Wei, two-time silver medalist of the Asian Games. If in the previous battles the native of Chust, Namangan region, won early victories, then in the finals he had to make a lot of efforts to beat the opponent. Ahmadaliyev and Zhang Jia Wei met in 2013, then the Chinese boxer proved stronger, but this time the Uzbek athlete took revenge and for the first time in his career became the champion of Asia.

Bronze medalist of the World Championship Elnur Abduraimov (up to 60 kg) came to the ring against Tapa Shiva from India. The fight lasted less than three minutes, as at the end of the first round the boxers collided and got injured. Four out of five referees gave victory to our boxer.

The champion of Uzbekistan, undefeated boxer of WSB Israil Madrimov (up to 75 kg) in the finals met with Lee Dong Yong from the Republic of Korea. Our compatriot started the match very actively, but in the first round he opened a dissection, got in a difficult semi-final battle. The fight was also stopped and by the decision of the judges – the victory was on the side of Madrimov.

The owner of silver medals of the Rio Olympics and the World Championship Bektemir Melikuziev fought against Erik Alzhanov from Kazakhstan. In the first minute of the match, the opponent looked a bit fresher than Melikuziev, but the Uzbek player was able to seize the initiative and hold it for the rest of the match. As a result of three rounds, the native of Ferghana defended the title of champion of Asia.

Olympic champion in 2016 Hasanboi Dusmatov came to the ring against Gan-Erden Ganhuyaga from Mongolia. The Andijan boxer was much faster than his opponent, who did not have time to evade his explosive attacks. The owner of the Val Barker Cup confidently surpassed the opponent and defended the title of champion of Asia.

Silver medalist of the World Championship Jasurbek Latipov met with Kim Ying Kyu from the Republic of Korea. The representative of Uzbekistan showed very technical boxing and deservedly won.

Ikbol Kholdarov, holder of the bronze of the youth world championship (under 64 kg) took the place of Fazliddin Gaibnazarov in the national team of Uzbekistan, who moved to professional boxing. In the final, he faced Chinzor Baatarasukha from Mongolia, seeded under the first number of these competitions. In the first round, the opponent looked better, but Kholdarov changed tactics, acted more tactfully and accurately, which helped him eventually become the champion of Asia.

Vice-champion of the Olympic Games-2016 Shahram Giyasov (up to 69 kg) “crossed” gloves with the winner of the youth Olympics in Nanjing-2014 Ablaikhan Zhusupov. The native of Bukhara sent the Kazakh to knockdown in the first three minutes, but he managed to continue the fight. Shahram in the usual manner arranged a show for the fans: he boxed with his hands down and literally danced in the ring. Following the results of three exciting rounds, a unanimous decision was ceded to Giyasov.

In the heavyweight (+91 kg) another confrontation between the teams of Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan took place – Bahodir Jalolov confronted Kamshibek Kunkabaev. The host of the ring, who twice lost to his opponent in the last two years, this time acted in another tactic. Jalolov moved more, successfully counter-attacked and was able to take revenge, thereby winning the gold medal of the Asian Championship.
