Jun 22, 2018
Jordan’s Olympic boxer Obadah Al Kesbah has qualified to the final of the 64kg weight at the Chemistry Cup in Halle, Germany.
Al Kesbeh secured his crack at the gold medal with a win over India’s Diheraj and he will meet Cuba’s Andy Gomez in Saturday’s final, the reigning World and Pan American Games champion.
Meanwhile, his teammate Ziad Ishaish settled for bronze after losing his semi-final to Russia’s former AIBA Junior World Champion, Ivan Kozolvesky.
Jordan previously won two bronzes at the championship in 2016 through Hussein Ishaish and Mohammad Al Wadi.
