After a fortnight of intensive training alongside some of the world’s best amateur boxers, Jordan’s top fighters are on their way home.
The camp, planned over a year ago, saw Mohammad Al Wadi, Obadah Al Kesbeh, Hussein Ishiash, Ziad Ishiash, Mohammad Zaboub, Bader Semreen and Mohammad Al Tamari take part with the goal of taking them up to the next level as the 2020 Olympics draw ever nearer.
The camp was supervised by the national team’s Algerian coach, Ezzeldein Aqqoun, who believes Jordan will benefit from the investment.
“The boxers trained with the Cuban and French teams so it was very intensive from day one,” he said. “We have learned a lot and will definitely benefit from the experience.”
The fighters are preparing for the 18th Asian Games that will take place in Indonesia from August 18-September 2.
