Kabatay Mukash Uulu was the Best Boxer of the Kyrgyz Junior National Championships in Kochkor where Nyshanov, Sabirov, Satybaldy Uulu and Aliyev defended their thrones
The Kyrgyz Junior National Championships was held in the recent days in the city of Kochkor and 15 new champions have been crowned. Chui region’s Kabatay Mukash Uulu was named as the Best Boxer of the Kyrgyz Junior National Championships who dominated all of his fights in the event.
Kochkor was the venue at the very first time in the history of the Kyrgyz Junior National Championships which located in the Naryn region of the Kyrgyz Republic. Boxers who were born in 2003 and in 2004 were able to attend in the Kyrgyz Junior National Championships which was their first selection event for this year’s upcoming ASBC Asian Confederation Junior Boxing Championships.
Altogether 217 boxers attended for the medals in fifteen weight classes from the 42kg up to the heavyweight (+80kg). The first title of the Kyrgyz Junior National Championships was taken by Bishkek’s Dzhenish Ulpatov who managed to win his narrow final against Nursultan Muktasov in Kochkor at the 42kg.
The second title of the event was captured by Bishkek’s Astan Maksatbek Uulu who defeated Nurali Amanbayev in the final of the 44kg weight class. Dzhalal-Abad region’s Asadbek Israilov had a tough preliminary start against Adil Temirbekov but he was able to manage that narrow fight and defeated all of his further rivals including Sanzhar Baiysh Uulu in the final of the pinweight (46kg).
Naryn region’s Suleimenov International Junior Tournament winner Bekzoo Zhekshenov and Kudretbek Sulaymanov both impressed in the final of the light flyweight (48kg) which was the best bout of the Kyrgyz Junior National Championships. Zhekshenov, who is spending his first year in the junior level, used his experiences to beat his talented rival in Kochkor.
Chui region’s Alim Macho reached his career highlight with his triumph in Kochkor following his success over last year’s silver medallist Fazliddin Dzhurayev. Chui region’s Daniyar Kadyrov claimed the title of the light bantamweight (52kg) after beating 2018 Junior National Championships bronze medallist Adilet Omurov in the final.
Bishkek’s Heydar Aliyev Junior Cup quarter-finalist Ikhtiyor Nyshanov won the title of the Kyrgyz Junior National Championships in 2018 and he repeated that performance defending his national throne. Nyshanov moved up from the light flyweight (48kg) to the bantamweight (54kg) in the recent 12 months but his strengths were enough to beat Azamat Ermekbay Uulu in Kochkor.
Naryn region’s Yryskeldi Emilbek Uulu was the Best Technician Boxer of the Kyrgyz Junior National Championships in spite of his relatively low experiences in the bigger events. The 16-year-old talent was slightly better than Chui region’s one-year younger Omar Livaza but his impressive footwork was surely enough to win this fight.
Chui region’s Aziz Sabirov spent his first year among the juniors in 2018 but he was able to win the title of the Kyrgyz Junior National Championships one year ago. The 16-year-old talent moved up three categories as another double champion Ikhtiyor Nyshanov. In the final of the lightweight (60kg) Sabirov had all of the experiences to beat Talas region’s Uluk Iskender Uulu whose ringside abandoned their fight in the third round.
Chui region’s Islam Cholponkulov had a tough semi-final against Bishkek’s Temurlan Asanbekov but following that success he was clearly better than Naryn region’s Eldar Askarov in the final of the light welterweight (63kg). Bishkek’s Suleimenov International Junior Tournament bronze medallist Sagyn Satybaldy Uulu was a defending champion from 2018 and he was crowned once again following his success over one-year younger Bekbol Murasbekov at the welterweight (66kg).
Chui region’s Suleimenov International Junior Tournament silver medallist Kabatay Mukash Uulu stopped all of his four rivals before the last gong and spent less than two minutes in the ring during his final against Ali-Mukhamed Khiyazov. His opponent was also silver medallist in the Suleimenov International Junior Tournament in Kazakhstan last September but Mukash Uulu was unstoppable for him in the final of the light middleweight (70kg).
Chui region’s Suleimenov International Junior Tournament winner Khalid Aliyev was named as one of the best Asian junior boxers in 2018 and arrived to the event as titleholder of the light heavyweight (80kg). The 16-year-old super talented boxer won his quarter-final and semi-final bouts by RSC in the first round and walked over to the title against Naryn region’s Marsel Zheksenov defending his throne easily.
Saiyrlan Nurbekov claimed the title of the middleweight (75kg) defeating Bishkek’s Khasan Khaitbayev who was born in 2004 and will be attending in the junior age group in 2020. The last gold medal of the Kyrgyz Junior National Championships was taken by Bishkek’s Argen Baktybekov who was born in 2004 and as a newcomer junior he defeated Sanzhar Tenizbekov in the final of the heavyweight (+80kg).
