Olympic boxer Obada Al-Kissbeh has guaranteed himself at least a bronze medal after winning his quarter-final bout at the Asian Championships in Bangkok, Thailand, on Monday.
He beat Uzbekistan’s Shunkor Abdurasulov in the men’s light welterweight (64kg), his third victory of the tournament to land a semi-final fight with Mongolia’s Chinzorig Baatarsukh on Thursday.
Mohammed Yunis missed out on his chance for a medal after losing his -81kg quarter-final to Kyrgyzstan’s Erkin Adelebk. Hussein Ishaish (-91kg), Ziad Ishaish (-69kg) Oday Al-Hindawi (+91kg) and Ahmed al-Mutbouli (-60kg) will be in quarter-final action on Tuesday.
