Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan both won three titles in the Military World Boxing Championships

The Military World Boxing Championships finished with its 15 female and male finals in Moscow, Russia. The Asian boxers achieved six gold medals in the Military World Boxing Championships in the Russian capital. Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan both earned three titles in the military event where Mongolia, Sri Lanka, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, South Korea and Syria also were on the podiums.

Altogether 231 boxers from 36 nations competed in the event from the Asian, European, American and African continents in Moscow. During the Military World Boxing Championships 216 female and male bouts were held in the Russian capital. Fifteen champions have been crowned in the Military World Boxing Championships after the tough finals of the competition.

The first Asian gold medal of the event was achieved by Uzbekistan’s Mavluda Mavlonova who proved her amazing developments in Moscow. Former two-time Asian Games winner Elshod Rasulov works hard to arrange progress in the Uzbek women’s national team and the 22-year-old Mavlonova amazed the experts in the military event. Mavlonova was better in all of the three rounds than Belarus’ AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships bronze medallist Viktoriya Kebikava and won the title of the middleweight (75kg).

Kazakhstan’s first title in the Military World Boxing Championships was taken by a veteran boxer, Temirtas Zhussupov who turned to 33 this year. The Kazakh light flyweight (48kg) boxer claimed gold medal at the Amman 2013 ASBC Asian Elite Boxing Championships and following more than 10 years of international experiences, he knew how to handle Brazil’s Leanderson Conceicao Siqueira in the first male final. 

Uzbekistan’s Shunkor Abdurasulov was silver medallist in the Jakarta 2018 Asian Games but in the recent years he could not represent the country in the major events. The 23-year-old lightweight (60kg) boxer eliminated all of his opponents and walked over to the gold medal against Russia’s Konstantin Opolskiy. The third Uzbek gold medal was achieved by ASBC Asian Youth Champion Lazizbek Mullojonov who controlled the super heavyweight (+91kg) final against Russia’s Svetoslav Teterin.

Kazakhstan’s Timur Nurseitov was not the main favourite of the men’s middleweight (75kg) but he exceeded his previous level and defeated Russia’s 2019 EUBC European U22 Champion Aleksei Semykin in the final. Kazakhstan’s next finalist Abzal Kuttybekov also won a gold medal in Moscow, he was too smart for Russia’s Ivan Sagaydak in the final of the heavyweight (91kg). Kuttybekov impressed also at the Istanbul Bosphorus International Tournament this year and continued his winning path in Moscow.

The Mongolians arrived to the CISM World Military Boxing Championships with a strong team and two of their boxers advanced to the final of the competition. Bolortuul Tumurkhuyag was gold medallist at the 2012 ASBC Asian Women’s Boxing Championships and earned another silver in Moscow where Daria Abramova was the only one who could beat her. ASBC Asian Champion Enkh-Amar Kharkhuu was near to beat Russia’s Ovik Oganisian in the final of the men’s bantamweight (56kg) but his silver medal is another strong achievement.
