ISHAISH BROTHERS OUT OF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
Aug 28, 2017
Hussein and Ziad Ishaish are both out of the 19th AIBA World Boxing Championships taking place in Hamburg, Germany, after losing their second round bouts.
Ziad,19, was first to go out, losing to Cuba’s hugely experienced Runel Iglesias, who took gold at the London 2012 Olympics.
It was a great learning curve for wildcard Ziad who won his first round match against Australia’s Andrew Hunt.
Fifth seed Hussein had received a bye to the second round but up came against Azerbaijan’s two-time former world champion, Mohammad Rasool, in the Super Heavyweight division.
It was the second consecutive tournament that Hussein has lost to him, suffering a similar fate at the Islamic Solidarity Games held in Baku last May.
