INJURY DENIES AL KESBAH GOLD CHANCE
There was heartbreak for Jordanian boxer Obadah Al Kesbah who missed out on the chance for a prestigious gold medal at 45th Chemistry Cup due to injury.
The 64kg fighter was unable to compete in the final due to an injury he suffered during his semi-final victory over India’s Diheraj.
It means he will have to settle for silver, which is added to the bronze medal that Ziad Ishaish won in the 75kg category.
Next up for the national team is the Thailand Boxing Championships that will be held in Bangkok from June 28-July 7.
The team is preparing for the 18th Asian Games that will be held in Indonesia from August 18-September 2.
