But while the 21-year-old will compete in the -68kg weight against the winner of Pakistan’s Mohammad Ikbal and Uganda’s Ogwalo Richard, Jordan’s participation in Seoul began today with Anas Al Adarbeh losing in round two of the -74kg to Serbia’s Damir Fegizik, 3-2.
Earlier he had beaten Kyrgyzstan’s Akbar Aitakanuv.
Also on Monday, Juliana Al Sadeeq will fight Luxemburg’s Isabella Faber in the -67kg. Jordan has travelled to the Far East with eight fighters who will compete through the rest of the week.
