This year, the com­pe­ti­tions or­ga­nized by the In­ter­na­tional Ama­teur Box­ing As­so­ci­a­tion (AIBA) are held in three con­ti­nen­tal groups. Uzbek Tigers par­tic­i­pates in com­pe­ti­tions of the Amer­i­can con­ti­nent to­gether with such strong teams as Colom­bia Heroicos (Colom­bia), Cuba Do­madores (Cuba) and Caciques de Venezuela (Venezuela).

The first meet­ing of group com­pe­ti­tions our box­ers spent on de­par­ture and lost to the Cuban team Cuba Do­madores. This time, the two teams met in the ring in the sports com­plex Uni­ver­sal in Tashkent. And in the Cuban sports­men there were both Olympic cham­pi­ons and win­ners of the world cham­pi­onships.

In the weight cat­e­gory of 49 kilo­grams, our Olympic cham­pion Hasan­boi Dus­ma­tov de­feated Os­car Argilo­gas Perez, in the next matches Sha­ho­bid­din Zoirov de­feated Robaysy Ramireza (56 kilo­grams), Is­roil Mad­ri­mov, Ar­lene Lopez Car­dona (75 kilo­grams), and San­jar Tur­sunov -Eris­landi Savona. Our young boxer Ik­boljon Kholdorov lost to Andy Cruz Gomez. Thus, the duel be­tween Uzbek Tigers and Cuba Do­madores ended in fa­vor of our box­ers with score 4:1.

“We are very care­fully pre­par­ing for each bat­tle,” says Is­roil Mad­ri­mov. “Be­fore the com­pe­ti­tion, we an­a­lyzed how each op­po­nent moves in the ring. As a re­sult, an im­por­tant vic­tory was achieved. We hope that we will also suc­cess­fully per­form in the next meet­ings.”

Now our box­ers will meet on March 1 in Tashkent with the team Colom­bia Heroicos.

“We are pleased that Uzbek­istan has or­ga­nized a high-level meet­ing of the VIII sea­son of the World Se­ries of Box­ing,” says su­per­vi­sor of the tour­na­ment Pat Fi­akko (Canada). “This shows that your coun­try pays much at­ten­tion to the devel­op­ment of sports and has ac­cu­mu­lated solid ex­pe­ri­ence in hold­ing pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tions.”
