Mizrob Nekboyev was one of the ASBC Heroes with his gold medal in Kuwait City in 2019 and we introduce his best highlights.

Mizrob Nekboyev was born in the year of 2005 and began his boxing career before his 10th birthday in the city of Navoy. His home city was named after the great Uzbek poet and statesman Alisher Navoy who lived in the 15th century.

Andizhan has got strong boxing schools and one of their new heroes in the future could be Zirve Boxing Championships gold medallist Abdulaziz Abdurakhmonov who defeated Navoy’s Mizrob Nekboyev in the 60kg final of the Nationals. Their final contest delivered split decision and it was one of the most exciting bouts of the Schoolboys National Championships.

Uzbekistan’s Mizrob Nekboyev claimed only silver medal in their Schoolboys National Championships but he received the right to attend at the Kuwait City 2019 ASBC Asian Schoolboys Boxing Championships following the decisions of their national coaches including Mr. Ravshan Khodjayev. He spent short time in the ring against Jordan’s Abu Jehad Yahya in his quarter-final in Kuwait City when his opponent’s ringside abandoned their unequal fight.

In spite of Nekboyev’s relatively low number of bouts and experienced in the Uzbek team, he became a finalist in Kuwait City and showed virtuoso performance. The Uzbek boxer eliminated Kyrgyzstan’s Bayel Samidin Uulu in the semi-final landing sensational combinations. The Uzbek talent used his height advantage as a weapon in the final of the 61kg weight class against Kazakhstan’s favourite Viktor Litvinov and controlled the first round with his longer reach. Litvinov was not enough strong in their final therefore the Uzbek talent was able to win their title bout in Kuwait City. 

The Uzbekistan International Junior Boxing Tournament started the year of 2020 in their capital city of Tashkent and Nekboyev joined their as a new junior boxer. Tashkent’s pride Mukhammadsobir Aleuatdinov eliminated ASBC Asian Schoolboys Champion Mizrob Nekboyev in the semi-finals of the welterweight (66kg) which was a tight contest between them.
