OLYMPIC HOPEFUL DARWISH REACHES ASIAN QUARTERS
Ihab Darweesh, who competed at the 2012 Olympics and is a hopefully for 2016, has reached the quarter finals of the Asian Boxing Championships in Thailand.
Darweesh, the Jordan team captain, beat Kyrgyzstan’s Bobasheve to carry the flag into the last eight.
Mohammad Al Wadi won his first fight against Tajikistan’s Fahdove and will meet the Indian boxer Shiva for a place in the quarters.
But it was disappointing for Obadah Al Kesbeh who lost to Uzbekistan’s Abdul Rahmanove and Udai Al Hindawi lost his first fight to China’s Zhou, 2-1.
