Twenty Three Asian Medal Hopes Shine On Day 5 In Jeju
by Sue Fox and Michael O'Neill
November 20, 2014


(NOV 20)  In recent months (WBAN) has been featuring reports on Asian boxers from various sources and different parts of the sub-continent so tonight we would particularly welcome those of our new readers who have joined us – wherever you are – for coverage of the 8th AIBA Women’s World Championships in Jeju, Korea.

Here at WBAN we very much invite any boxers/coaches/boxing federations (‘amateur’ or professional to submit (a) interesting articles on boxing in YOUR country and occasionally “copyright-free) photos, legally sourced or your own from YOUR social media site. We cannot guarantee to include every submission new receive from you for obvious reasons and we must insist that such contributions be in the English-language. 

Tell us about your favourite female Asian boxers? If you are a boxer or coach what are your future plans in the sport? Send your interesting articles or photos to : wban100@aol.com  or via @wbanbuzz or via our Facebook pages.

The 8th edition of the AIBA Women’s World Championships is reaching a crucial stage in Jeju and it is particularly good to see so many rising new talents emerge.

Of course we all know of the heroic feats of 5 times World Champion Mary Kom and of the excellence of such as Pinki Jangra at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Good to see talented new Indian stars in Jeju albeit such as Mary Kom and Pooja Rani.

Watching these championships via aiba.org or their You Tube channel one has been greatly impressed by many new talented Asian boxers. No Mavzuna Chorieva from Tajikistan this year alas but who has not been impressed by Korea’s own Oh Yeonji in the 57kg Feather division? So too the excellent Sudaporn Seesondee from Thailand.

Sadly no title for Josie Gabuco this year but our friends from Philippines have provided another star performer in Featherweight Nesthy Peticio.

The young boxers from Chinese Taipei have greatly impressed our experts as well as the crowds in Jeju.

No Cheng Dong or Cancan Ren from China in 2014 but a whole host of new boxers from China led by Asian Games Gold medallist (60kg) Junhua Yin and Li Qian (75kg Middleweight) ensuring that our Chinese friends will remain a ‘powerhouse’ in Women’s boxing for many years.

We look forward to hearing from you (in English) – remember copyright free photos and interesting news items to wban100@aol.com or via Facebook or @wbanbuzz

Now for those of you who are not yet up to date with today’s results from Jeju this report comes courtesy of the AIBA’s Asian Boxing Confederation of the International Boxing Association, to whom our grateful thanks:

ASBC report 20 November:

23 Asian medal hopes remain in the AIBA Women's World Championships:

Following the preliminaries the number of the remained Asian boxers is 23 in the quarter-finals which is almost 30% of the athletes who qualified to the Top8 in Jeju. The Asian ladies continued the hegemony of the Light Flyweight class (48 kg) at the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships while our hopes were great also at the Featherweight class (57 kg) in Jeju, Korea where the most successful nation from our continent in China.

Women's Light Flyweight class (48 kg):

India’s AIBA Women's Youth World Champion Sarjubala Shamjetsabam Devi joined to the elite national squad this year but arrived to Jeju as a medal contender. The 21-year-old athlete's second rival was Mongolia’s defending ASBC Asian Women's Continental Champion Bolortuul Tumurkhuyag. The Indian hope controlled the bout from the first seconds and eliminated her Asian rival winning the bout by unanimous decision. 3:0

Indonesia's last remained boxer Aldriani Suguro achieved a silver medal in the last edition of the Southeast Asian Games in Nay Pyi Taw where she was defeated by only AIBA Women's World Champion Josie Gabuco in a close bout. The 21-year-old Indonesian boxer proved her best in the whole bout against US hope Alexandra Love and due her excellent efforts in the final round she was able to beat her North American rival in Jeju.

Thailand’s Taipei City Cup winner Chuthamat Raksat is another Asian hope who is only 21 and defeated a lot of top level athletes in the recent two years. The Southeast Asian boxer had to face with Algeria’s Nations Women's Cup gold medallist 19-year-old Souhila Bouchene who is also a great prospect in our sport. Thailand's hope did not give any chance for the Algerian athlete and also secured her place in the quarter-finals following the unanimous decision of the bout.

Chinese Taipei's Pin Meng Chieh, who moved down to the Light Flyweight class (48 kg), eliminated the defending AIBA Women's World Champion Josie Gabuco of Philippines in the first preliminary round and had to meet with another top athlete Italy's Valeria Calabrese on the fifth competition day. Chinese Taipei's No.1 was not enough shape in the opening round but she was able to concentrate from the second round and worked from longer range which demonstrated she is the better boxer. Pin Meng Chieh also advanced to the Top8 in Jeju which is her career highlight.

Kazakhstan's AIBA Women's World Championships bronze medallist Nazym Kyzaybay is only 21 yet but she has been involved to the national squad still back in 2010. The Central Asian hope had to meet with Korea's FISU University World Championships silver medallist Bak Cho Rong who eliminated Hungary's Virginia Barankai in the previous preliminary round on home soil. Kyzaybay was in a different level and her hand was raised after the final bell as expected before their contest.

Japan's super talented boxer Madoka Wada has been selected to the national team at the age of 17 and now she is a strong favourite in the lowest weight class. The 19-year-old Japanese hope was confident in her second contest against a qualified opponent, Ukraine's former EUBC European Continental Champion Natalia Knyaz. Wada was but tired in the final round but her advantage was enough to beat the Ukrainian boxer in Jeju.

China's AIBA Women's World Championships silver medallist Xu Shiqi was not able to repeat her previous performance and proved her best only the third round which was not enough for her to beat Romania's defending EUBC European Women's Continental Champion Steluta Duta in Jeju. Xu lost her narrow bout but six Asian boxers advanced to the quarter-finals in the Light Flyweight class (48 kg).

Women’s Bantamweight class (54 kg):

China’s Gao Jinyan has done her successful debut in Jeju on Day1 when she eliminated Hungary's Szabina Szucs and following that she also defeated Poland's Sandra Drabik. Her third opponent was Belarus’ Helina Bruyevich who is member of their national squad since 2011. Gao moved away from the dangerous zones and operated with quick counter-attacks while her defense was in the world class level which meant she could eliminate her European rival with impressive performance.

Kazakhstan's most developed female boxer Dina Zholaman won her previous two bouts in Jeju, she was too smart for Argentina's favourite Leonela Sanchez and Australia's Chernaka Johnson. The 22-year-old rising hope had to meet with India's Meena Maisnam Kumari who achieved her first national title last month. Zholaman was enough shape once again to take the lead while the Indian boxer received a warning in the third round which delivered a success for Kazakhstan in Jeju.

Women’s Featherweight class (57 kg):

The Asian women boxers have done great job also in the Featherweight class (57 kg) where four of our competitors were able to advance to the Top8. Philippines' last remained boxer in Jeju, AIBA Women's World Championships quarter-finalist Nesthy Petecio had a talented young opponent, Ukraine's 19-year-old Maryna Malovana but she was able to find the weaknesses of her rival and secured her place in the quarter-finals as first in the category.

China's new national team member Lu Qiong is participating in her fist ever international event but she worked well in the previous stages of the championships. The Chinese Lady knocked down her Mongolian opponent, Oyun Nergui twice therefore her triumph was a well-deserved one. Chinese Taipei's Chen Wen Ling eliminated Hungary's Kornelia Kitti Nagy in the first preliminary round and continued her winning path against Sri Lanka's Keshani Hansika Kasthuri, winning the bout by split decision. Korea's National Sports Festival winner Oh Yeon Ji proved top level performance in the previous stage of the championships and she did not give any chance to Mexico's Melissa Esquivel.

Women’s Lightweight class (60 kg):

China’s Asian Games winner Yin Junhua began her career only in 2009 but five years of experiences in our sport was enough for her to reach the top level. She had to meet with Spain’s Jennifer Miranda who also started with a triumph in the AIBA Women's World Boxing Championships in Jeju. The Chinese southpaw used quick counter-attacks as weapon in the first part of the bout while Yin Junhua moved ahead more in the final round and won the bout by unanimous decision.

Vietnam's AIBA Women's Youth World Championships silver medallist Luu Thi Duyen bagged a valuable bronze at the Incheon 2014 Asian Games and now she returned to Korea to prove her technique once again. Following her first triumph in Jeju she had to box against France's EUBC European Women's Continental Championships silver medallist Estelle Mossely. The Vietnamese boxer started well enough but her European opponent turned up the heat and won their top level contest in Jeju. Thailand's AIBA Women's World Championships bronze medallist Tassamalee Thongjan also lost her bout to Poland's Kinga Siwa and finished her appearance in the event.

Women’s Light Welterweight class (64 kg):

Kazakhstan's 21-year-old Zarina Tsoloyeva defeated strong Saida Khassenova in their National Championships and received the right to fight in the AIBA Women's World Boxing Championships. She won her opening bout in Jeju but she could realize her tactic only in the final frame against India's Ramilal Pavitra who was able to beat her by split decision in Jeju, which was their fourth place in the last eight.

Thailand's Southeast Asian Games winner 23-year-old Supaporn Srisondee developed well enough in the recent two years and arrived to the championships as medal contender where her second opponent was Argentina's Macarena Ledesma. The Thai boxer attacked more than her South American rival and controlled the first three rounds. Following the bout her Cuban coach Mr. Omar Malagon could congratulate to her which meant Thailand remained two boxers in the quarter-finals.

Women’s Middleweight class (75 kg):

China's Asian Games silver medallist and Sportaccord World Combat Games runner-up Li Qian is competing in her first AIBA Women's World Boxing Championships but she could do her very best once again in Jeju. The 24-year-old boxer, who trains in the Inner Mongolian region of the huge country, dominated the whole bout against Australia's Kaye Scott and advanced to the Top8 as lone Asian athlete in this weight class.
