International hopes as Rahmani and Aryoubi joined Afghanistan’s New Training Program

Afghanistan’s two top boxers are in a special training program in the capital city of the country in Kabul to prepare to the next goals. Their National Olympic Committee supports the preparation of their two best elite male boxers who have the chance to compete internationally once again in the near future.

The President of the Afghanistan Boxing Federation Mr. Abdullah Sattari and his management worked successfully in the recent years to develop the sport in the country.  The officials of the Afghanistan Boxing Federation selected Ramish Rahmani (52kg) and Faizullah Aryoubi (81kg) to the program.

Ramish Rahmani began his boxing career in 2012 and after seven years of experiences in the sport, he has done a real international breakthrough in the Bangkok 2019 ASBC Asian Boxing Championships where he won two fights and advanced to the quarter-finals. Rahmani was the first Afghan elite boxers in the recent decades who could beat a South Korean boxer. Following that strong result, the flyweight (52kg) talent claimed silver medal at the 2019 Indonesian President’s Cup in Labuan Bajo eliminating one of the top Ukrainians as well.

Faizullah Aryoubi is Afghanistan’s best light heavyweight (81kg) boxer who won his first elite national title in 2016 at the age of 19. Since then he competed international events in India, in Thailand and in Jordan to develop his experiences. Rahmani and Aryoubi both train together with national coach Nesar Ahmad Qarizada in Kabul.

Afghanistan competed in several international events in 2019 and their boxers claimed medals in the Kuwait City ASBC Asian Schoolboys Boxing Championships. Their talents were near to get podium places also in the Bangkok ASBC Asian Elite Boxing Championships and at the Fujairah ASBC Asian Junior Boxing Championships last year. Afghanistan sent boxers to the Yekaterinburg AIBA World Boxing Championships and in the last month of 2019 their best athletes attended in the World Cup of Petroleum Countries Tournament in Beloyarskiy, Russia. The Afghan boxers competed international events in Indonesia, in China and also in other countries. Afghanistan sent a team to the Asian & Oceanian Olympic Boxing Qualifying Event to Amman on March 2020.
