The women’s flyweight delivered crucial battles in the quarter-finals of the Indonesian National Games
One of the top events, the Indonesian National Games are running in the Asian continent and its boxing tournament is in the quarter-final stage. The women’s flyweight (51kg) delivered the closest battles in the next session, all of the four winners had to do their very best to earn their medals in the Games.
The event is the return for the Indonesians to the national competitions after a long period due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The region of Papua is the host of the 20th edition of the Indonesian National Games where boxing is a popular sport and many of their previous stars and veterans decided to return to the stage. Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta hosted the last edition of the Asian Games in 2018 and their boxers earned two medals in that event. Indonesia also sent boxers to the Dubai 2021 ASBC Asian Elite Boxing Championships.
Impressive number of 59 women boxers are attending in the National Games in seven weight classes: 45kg, 48kg, 51kg, 54kg, 57kg, 60kg and 64kg. The number of the male boxers is 74 in the event and their best hopes can attend in ten different categories: 46kg, 49kg, 52kg, 56kg, 60kg, 64kg, 69kg, 75kg, 81kg and 91kg. The women’s 45kg and the men’s 46kg weight classes are additional divisions in the Indonesian National Games.
The women’s flyweight (51kg) delivered amazing battles in the quarter-finals of the National Games, all of the four tough battles have been decided only by split decisions (3:2). Suzen Ramsi Simangunsong arrived from a boxing family and proved her talent but Yudit Elisabet Mounino was slightly better in the exchanges. Aldriani Beatrichx Suguro represented Indonesia in several major championships since 2014 but she had to do her very best to beat Erny Amalia Lestari in the quarter-final.
Ainun Azizah has got also international experiences since 2017 and the young talent is also one of the favourites for the title at the women’s flyweight (51kg). The 22-year-old boxer had an unexpected crucial battle against Aisyah Aljufri but she managed to win the bout with excellent final round. One of the Indonesian veteran girls, Selly Wanimbo returned to the National Games and she started well against a young talent, Silya Muskita.
Novita Sinadia was named as gold medal contender of the women’s bantamweight (54kg) and she proved her power against Hindriawati Haer. Sinadia controlled all of the three rounds in their quarter-final and marched to the last four earning a guaranteed medal in the National Games. She will be meeting in the semi-finals with Veronica Nicolaas who had a close success over Serlin Alin Kase.
Ratu Silpalau opened her preliminary campaign with a clear success in the National Games and she continued her road to the semi-finals at the women’s featherweight (57kg) with a clear success over Merviana Efrida Nengsih. Her main national rival, AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships competitor Christina Marwan Jembay also succeeded and defeated Ratna Sari Devi by large margin of differences.
The men’s heavyweight (91kg) is also a strong category in the National Games with experienced boxers on the board. Sandyarto Deno Feroja moved up to this weight class and decided his contest against DKI Jakarta’s Hasmar Lubis very quickly. Nasrudin also spent short time in his quarter-final, he simply knocked out his opponent, Bahmid Taha Rumkel in the first round while veteran Eriko Amanupunyo also advanced to the last four.
