ASBC Heroes – Uzbekistan’s Asian Schoolboy Champion Umidillo Abdurasulov
Uzbekistan’s Umidillo Abdurasulov won the title of the 43kg weight class at the Kuwait City 2019 ASBC Asian Schoolboys Boxing Championships. The two-time Uzbek Schoolboys National Champion was one of the ASBC Heroes in 2019 who joined to the junior age group this January.
Umidillo Abdurasulov was born in the city of Andizhan in 2005 and began his boxing career as a young child. Andizhan’s Umidillo Abdurasulov was gold medallist in the 2018 edition of the Uzbekistan Schoolboys National Championships at the 42kg weight class when he defeated Rajabboy Pirnazarov in the final.
Abdurasulov repeated that title after his success over Bukhara’s Asadbek Rajabov in the final of the 44kg weight category at the 2019 Uzbekistan Schoolboys National Championships. He competed in an international schoolboy event in Almaty where he achieved bronze medal following his loss to the local favourite in the semi-finals.
Uzbekistan’s two-time Schoolboys National Champion Umidillo Abdurasulov bowed out Kazakhstan’s Bakhtiyar Anarbayev in a superb semi-final at the Kuwait City 2019 ASBC Asian Schoolboys Boxing Championships which was one of the best matches of the fourth competition day.
The promising Uzbek had to meet with Turkmenistan’s Dovlet Nurmuradov in the final of the historical schoolboy event. Turkmenistan sent small teams to the ASBC Asian Schoolboys Boxing Championships but four of their boxers advanced to the semi-finals and two into the finals in Kuwait City. Abdurasulov determined that he is the better boxer already in the first round and dominated the second with his quicker punches which delivered for him a well-deserved gold medal.
