BOXER IS ONE WIN AWAY FROM OLYMPICS
Mar 29, 2016
Hussein Ishaish is just one win away from booking a spot to the summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
The Super Heavyweight fighter reached the semi-finals of the Asian and Oceana Qualifying event in Qian’an, China after beating Song Hwa-Pyeong of Korea.
The top three qualify for Rio, so even if he loses his next bout, he will have a final chance by fighting the other losing semi-finalist.
Obada Al Kasbeh’s bid ended with a quarter final defeat to Japan’s Daisuke Narimatsu in the lightweight division, as well as Mohammed Al Wadi (bantamweight) who lost to Mario Fernandez (Phillipines)3-0.
