YOUNG BOXERS BEGIN ASIAN CAMPAIGN
Jordan’s young boxers have launched their campaign at the Asian Confederation Schoolboys Boxing Championships with an impressive win in Kuwait.
Aws Ishaish got Jordan off to a winning start with victory over Kuwait's Jaber Al-Otaibi in the 37kg competition to book a quarter-final fight with Kazakhstan’s Damir on Monday.
But there was not good news for Hamza Malas (40kg) and Faris Ahmed (55kg) lost their first matches to Syria's Mohammed Al-Badour and Kyrgyzstan's Borin Vadim respectively.
On Sunday, Abdulhakim Jaradat (43kg), Elias Gouda (52kg), Jaafar Timur (58kg), Jihad Abu Khadija (61kg) and Abdallah Dalgamouni (67 kg) will all be in action.
