State Boxing Championship begins
The State Senior Boxing Championship has begun on Monday at the Central Sports Palace, with the preliminary elimination bouts.
This year 206 participants; 166 men and 42 women boxers from 26 organizations are competing in the championship in men’s; 49, 52, 56, 60, 64, 69 kg weight classes and women’s 52, 60, 70 kg weight classes.
The range of the annual Boxing Championship is broadening year by year and attracting more participants as boxing is one of the more successful Olympic sports in Mongolia. Since Olympic silver medalist P.Serdamba retired from boxing this year, his light flyweight class 49 kg is quite interesting for sports-lovers. 21 boxers are competing in this class this year. Boxer G.Gan-Erdene, the silver medalist of the 2012 World Boxing Cup in Russia, is much anticipated to win this class.
Famous boxers including Olympic bronze medalist U.Munkh-Erdene, Olympic silver medalist N.Tugstsogt are competing in their weights 64kg, and 52 kg classes respectively. Other successful boxers participating at the competition are; B.Tuvshinbat, Z.Enkhzorig, B.Javkhlan, E.Iderkhuu, T.Chuluuntumur, and N.Shinebayar.
The official opening of the State Boxing Championship is set to take place today and the competitions will continue for 7 days and will conclude on Sunday.
