2013 AIBA World Championship in Almaty: Day 5

By Alexey Sukachev

The first day of the second stage of 2013 world amateur boxing championship was marked with a number of interesting collisions, some debatable decisions and with a high domination of Central Asian fighters in an entire competition. Fighting without helmets keeps an entire competition twice as thrilling.

Flyweights proved to be one of the sport’s best divisions, filled in with rising, sliding and shining stars. One on the downslide was Welshman Andrew Selby, ranked #1 in the competition, a two-time European gold and one-time world silver medalist. The 25-year old fighter was rocked badly several times in the first by young American Malik Johnson, fought on even terms with the youngster in the second, and edged his foe tightly in the third but was nevertheless awarded a very debatable unanimous decision.

All five CA nations – Turkmens, Tajiks, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz and Uzbeks – had their representatives winning handily in the first. One, who failed to get through, was #3 Mexican Elias Emigidio, who was eliminated by a strong Thai Chatchai Butdee. Another strong disappointment was Englishman Charlie Edwards, the only flyweight, to be stopped in the ring. Misha Aloyan looked impressive as always.

Brazilian light welterweight Everton Lopes, one of a very small bunch of fighters to give some trouble to the two-time golden Olympian Vasyl Lomachenko, rated #1 this time, easily cruised to the round of 16. Russian Armen Zakaryan and Mongol Munkh-Erdene Uranchimeg are going through easily too, as well as Lithuanian slugger Evaldas Petrauskas and Cuban Yasnier Lopez.

The nephew of all-time great Felix Savon, rising Cuban star Erislandy Savon was the most impressive fighter of the first round. It took him just 42 seconds to annihilate his Korean opponent. Much more competitive was a win by Russian Evgueny Tischenko and Italian veteran Clemente Russo. Both were pushed very hard to come out as winners against dangerous opposition as was #1 rated Teymur Mammadov.

Team USA continued its crashing flight, losing all three of its representative today. Americans have just 3 out of 10 participants left after five days of competition. All Russian fighters went through to the next stage. Going very strong are Central Asian states, racking up 11 wins in 13 fights altogether. Uzbeks and Kazakhs are still to lose any fighters.
