Jordan’s boxers are trying one last time to book spots for this summer’s Olympic Games at the World Qualification Tournament being held in Azerbaijan. And it has got off to a good start with Obada Al Kasbeh winning his first round fight against Guatemala’s Daniel Carlos in the tough 64kg category. He will next fight on Monday against Turkistan’s Aziz Bebitov. Mohammed al Wadi will also fight on Monday against Chinese Taipei star Ling Lin Sheng in the 54kg weight. There were opening defeats though for Ziad Ishaiash who lost to the Brazilian Roberto De Queiroz in the 69kg weight while Mohammed Al Yazouri lost to American boxer Jonathan Esquivel in the 81kg category. A total of 474 boxers are entered from 106 countries trying to find their way to Rio de Janeiro where Jordan’s Hussein Ishaiash has already booked his ticket.
