Mohammad Zaboub will launch Jordan’s campaign at the Asian Youth Boxing Championships taking place this week in Bangkok, Thailand.
Friday’s draw dictated that Zaboub will meet Turkmenistan's Daianish Mohammadove in the 52kg category.
His teammate, Bader Semreen, has been drawn in the quarter-final of the 64kg against South Korea’s Hong Yung, and later in the week, on Wednesday, Mohammad Al Taimari will fight China’s Hili Milati in the 81kg quarter-final.
The winner from each weight will go directly to the Youth Olympic Games that will be held in Argentina in October.
