Uzbek ath­lete Saidamirkhon Tur­gun­baev has taken part in the Asian Ju­nior Cham­pi­onships and won a sil­ver medal.

The Asian tour­na­ment was held in early De­cem­ber in Hong Kong. For the ti­tle of cham­pion fought par­tic­i­pants from 20 coun­tries of the con­ti­nent.

It is worth not­ing that the rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Uzbek­istan for the first time in 20 years took part in com­pe­ti­tions of this mag­ni­tude.

Mem­ber of the Uzbek­istan na­tional box­ing team, cham­pion of Asia and the world, sil­ver medal­ist of the 2016 Olympic Games Shahram Giyasov left am­a­teur box­ing and moved to the pro­fes­sional box­ing.

To pre­pare for the up­com­ing bat­tles in a new di­rec­tion, our boxer went to the US.

We re­mind you that in May this year in Tashkent, Shahram be­came the cham­pion of Asia, and in Septem­ber he won a gold medal at the World Cham­pi­onships in Hamburg.

In 2015, per­form­ing for the youth team, Giyasov won the youth world cham­pi­onship in Yakutsk.

Pres­i­dent of the In­ter­na­tional Judo Fed­er­a­tion, Mar­ius Wieser, has been in Uzbek­istan on an of­fi­cial three-day visit.

Dur­ing the visit to our coun­try, he held a num­ber of meet­ings with the lead­er­ship of the Uzbek­istan Judo Fed­er­a­tion, the Na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee, and the State Com­mit­tee of Uzbek­istan for Phys­i­cal Cul­ture and Sports.

Mixed mar­tial arts fighter from Uzbek­istan Mah­mud Mu­radov held an­other bat­tle for the XFN (X Fight Nights) belt in the Czech Repub­lic.

Uzbek fighter Mah­mud Mu­radov knocked out his op­po­nent in the first round as part of the tour­na­ment for the cham­pion belt of XFN in the O2 Arena in Prague. The ri­val of Mu­radov was the rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Czech Repub­lic To­masz Penza.

Ac­cord­ing to the con­tract con­cluded be­tween Mah­mud Mu­radov and XFN (X Fight Nights), this fight was the last. Prior to this, within the frame­work of the XFN tour­na­ment, Mu­radov had three fights, two vic­to­ries and one de­feat.
