Mr. Chunhavajira to oversee ASBC elite tourney and meet with officials in Amman

Asian Boxing Confederation (ASBC) President Mr. Pichai Chunhavajira is glad to see the enormous interest shown by the affiliated national federations to participate in the fast-approaching ASBC Asian Elite Men’s & Women’s Championships 2022.

Mr. Chunhavajira will travel to host city Amman, Jordan to oversee the competition and meet with several officials from various affiliated national federations.

Transparency, fair judging, anti-doping and health safety will be the major topics of their discussion.

Meanwhile, Kazakhstan is now all set for its overall title defense even as fellow previous edition gold medal winners Uzbekistan, Mongolia and India are out to steal the throne.

China, the overall champion in 2019, will make its comeback and try to reclaim the crown while Bhutan, Hong Kong, South Korea and Turkmenistan will also return to the major continental competition.

Afghanistan, Bahrain, Cambodia, Iran, Iraq, Japan, host nation Jordan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Syria, Chinese Taipei, Tajikistan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates and Vietnam have also confirmed their participation.

After nine years, the Asian Elite Championships will take place once again in the Jordanian capital of Amman, with the final dates scheduled on October 30 to November 13.

The Jordan Amateur Boxing Association, with the help of the ASBC, has been organizing a 15-day international elite training camp which started last October 14 to help the boxers acclimatize with the weather and environment. Amman is no stranger to hosting big tournaments, having staged the ASBC Asian Youth & Junior Championships last March and the Asia & Oceania Olympic Qualifying Tournament in 2020.
