The first edition of the Chinggis Khan Cup will be held in October
The forthcoming Chinggis Khan Cup will be held in the middle of October in the capital city of Mongolia in Ulaanbaatar where the best men boxers can compete for the medals and prizes. The competition will be a new event in the Asian boxing map which shows the great commitment of the Mongolian Boxing Federation.
Mongolia had two medals in the 2012 edition of the Olympic Games in London and a few weeks ago their current Asian Games winner and ASBC Asian Confederation Champion Dorjnyambuu Otgondalai was also able to get a podium place for the strong Central Asian country in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Mongolia was the fourth best Asian nations in the qualification events for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Mongolia has got only 1,000 registered boxers in the country but Dorjnyambuu Otgondalai achieved bronze medal in Rio and further five athletes represented the country in the Games in Brazil. Mongolia qualified boxers through from the Light Flyweight class (49 kg) up to the Welterweight class (69 kg). The average age of their six Rio 2016 Olympians was 24.5 years which means the new team has got also experiences besides to their great skills.
The Mongolians proved also top performance in the last edition of the ASBC Asian Confederation Boxing Championships in Bangkok, Thailand and they had great talents to get top performance in the upcoming Chinggis Khan Cup where boxers born between 1976 and 1998 are eligible to compete.
Mongolia’s super talented boxer Erdenebat Tsendbaatar will be turning to 20 only later this year but he reached the world class level very quickly and the three-time National Elite Champion is among the top favourites in the Chinggis Khan Cup. He was near to get medal at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, reached the quarter-finals as a teenager in Rio de Janeiro.
Mongolia’s Summer Universiade Games winner Enkh-Amar Kharkhuu returned to the national team this January after his suspension and raised his experiences in the qualification events and also in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. The super talented duo could be the host nation’s sensations in the upcoming Chinggis Khan Cup in Ulaanbaatar.
The Mongolian Boxing Federation is planning to launch a tradition with the first edition of the Chinggis Khan Cup in Ulaanbaatar and host it every single year.
