Asians dazzle on Youth World Championships Day1

Asian boxers began their campaign in the Youth World Boxing Championships 2022 on a strong note as the opening day of competition at the Ciudad Deportiva Camilo Cano in La Nucia, Spain concluded last November 15.

Reigning Asian youth champions Vishvanath Suresh and Vanshaj provided a great start for India’s title defense. Suresh took a close win over Ireland’s Thady Patsy Joyce in the men’s minimumweight (48kg) division while Vanshaj crushed Uzbekistan’s Asian junior champ Shavkatjon Boltayev, 5-0, in light welterweight (63.5kg).

Other minimumweight bets came through with convincing victories on Day 1 of this year’s Youth World Championships.

Mongolia’s Tuvshinzaya Otgonbayar earned the nod of all five judges against Trinidad & Tobago’s Jokhu Al-Jaleel Ortega while Uzbekistan’s Miralijon Mavlonov pulled off a 5-0 stunner over Kyrgyzstan’s Asian youth silver winner Bekzat Ergeshov.

Thailand’s Thitiwat Phlongaurai stopped Azerbaijan’s Tural Sariyev in the second round even as Japan’s Motoki Sadahiro ripped Mexico’s Mauricio Ruiz, 5-0.

Philippines’ Ronel Suyom smothered Bulgaria’s Yoan Stefanov, 5-0, and Kazakhstan’s Ramazan Nurlybayev disposed of Ecuador’s Luis Enrique Guaman, 5-0. Chinese Taipei and South Korea are the other participating Asian nations in La Nucia where 597 youth men and women boxers from 73 countries across all five confederations are out to compete.
