ASBC champion Tamanna of India and other Asian medalists secured their quarterfinal berths in the IBA Youth World Boxing Championships 2022 following their triumphs on November 19 at the Ciudad Deportiva Camilo Cano in La Nucia, Spain.
Poised to win the women’s light flyweight (51kg) gold medal taken by compatriot Gitika Narwal last year, the reigning Asian youth titlist Tamanna needed just 19 seconds to dispatch Finland’s Pia Jaervinen via RSC.
Fellow Indian and ASBC bronze finisher Deepak drubbed Argentina’s Antonio Leiva Santiago, 5-0, in the men’s middleweight (75kg) division.
Uzbekistan’s Asian silver finisher Daulet Tulemissov routed Germany’s Malek Semmo, 5-0, to arrange a quarterfinal match against Deepak.
Another Uzbek bet and former ASBC junior champ Gulsevar Ganiyeva made a successful return to competition as she stopped Hungary’s Kata Pap in the third round of their women’s minimumweight (48kg) contest.
Other emerging Asian standouts showed strong performances in the round of 16 on Day 5 to inch closer to the medal round.
Philippines’ new sensation Ronel Suyom put up a 5-0 romp over Saudi Arabia’s Ibrahim Al-Johani while Japan’s Sadahiro Motoki manhandled Iran’s Morteza Rigi, 5-0, in men’s minimumweight. Chinese Taipei’s Kuo Yi Hsuan clobbered Spain’s Laura Barcelo, 5-0, in women’s minimumweight even as Japan’s Juni Tonegawa topped Ireland’s Caoimhe Kinsella, 4-1, in light flyweight.
