2013 AIBA World Championships: Day 8 Results

By Alexey Sukachev

The first day of the third stage of 2013 WC amateur championship was a great present for all upset hunters, as four highly regarded boxers were eliminated from the competition. Several other minor upsets also heated the atmosphere in a former Kazakh capital up.

Hero of the day is Russian middleweight Artem Chebotarev, who earned a convincing decision over #1-ated favorite Esquivia Florentino Falcao. The Brazailian star was unlucky to get his gold medal at 2012 Olympics, loosing controversially to Japanese Ryota Murata. This time there was no place for controversy, as Chebotarev easily walked through the Brazilian. Artem wasn’t very successful in the recent major competitions but this tournament can very well be his stellar hour.

Adding even more heat to the already rocked 165lb division was Englishman Antony Fowler, who has got the rid of Ukrainian Team leader Dmytro Mitrofanov also with a unanimous decision. Mitrofanov was considered a favorite after the recent move of his bitter rival Ievguen Khytrov to the pros, but it wasn’t his day, as Fowler kept coming with overwhelming activity.

Finally, two #3-seeded boxers also failed to reach for the quarterfinals – lightweight Armen Zakaryan and bantamweight Robenilson de Jesus has been both defeated today.
Those, who didn’t disappoint, include other #1 and #2-seeded fighters. One, who stands out, however, is #1 bantamweight Robeisy Ramirez, 2012 flyweight gold medal winner. The 19-year old Cuban looks a second incarnation of either Guillermo Rigondeaux or Yuriorkis Gamboa at this point of his amateur career.

Teams Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan continue to dominate an overall scene. Kazakhs lost just one fighter, as heavyweight Anton Pinchuk was eliminated by a fellow Uzbek fighter. Avenging his loss was light flyweight Birzhan Zhakypov, who outpointed tough Uzbek Hasan Dusmatov in a very close fight.
