The best Uzbek girls train in Yangiabad to prepare well to the upcoming Qualification Event
Uzbekistan is one of the best band leading boxing nations in the whole world therefore their expectations are high in the upcoming Asian & Oceanian Olympic Qualification Event.

Yangiabad has got a perfect location in the mountains near to their capital city and many of the top national teams including England, Cuba, Kazakhstan, Russia and Hungary spent already time there in joint training camps.
The women’s boxing was launched in Uzbekistan only in the beginning of the decade nearly 10 years ago and their athletes developed step by step in the international level. Uzbekistan sent female boxers first to the 2012 edition of the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships to Qinhuangdao to increase the experiences of their girls.
The Uzbekistan Women’s National Championships was a small event in 2013 but two years later the number of boxers have been multiplied. The Uzbek girls achieved their first medals in the Wulanchabu 2015 ASBC Asian Women’s Boxing Championships in China which was their first breakthrough in the female part of boxing.
Their Yodgoroy Mirzaeva was only 20 four years ago when she qualified for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games as first Uzbek female boxer. The three-time ASBC Asian Women’s Boxing Championships bronze medallist Mirzaeva is member of their current female team and she is aiming for a place in the Qualification Event.
Tashkent hosted the 2017 ASBC Asian Elite Boxing Championships and three years ago they had already more than 1,000 registered female boxers in the country. Their youngest age groups reached amazing female results in 2019 claiming medals and titles in the Fujairah ASBC Asian Junior Boxing Championships.
Uzbekistan won important female contests in the Ulan-Ude 2019 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships and some of their boxers reached the top Asian level in the recent two years therefore the expectations from their girls are even higher than before the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
