Boxing: 2022 IBA Youth World Boxing Championships

Post by Saffron Lenin »

Young Indian boxers continued their dominance at the IBA Youth Men’s and Women’s World Boxing Championships 2022 as seven of them stormed into the finals after their stunning victories in La Nucia, Spain.


Youth Asian champions Vanshaj and Vishwanath Suresh marched ahead along with Ashish to maintain all-win record for India in the men’s semifinals whereas Kirti (+81kg), Bhawna Sharma (48kg), Devika Ghorpade (52kg) and Ravina (63kg) progressed in the women’s section.

While Chennai boy Vishwanath claimed 4-1 win over Juanma Lopez of Puerto Rico, Vanshaj (63.5kg) and Ashish (54kg), who hail from Haryana, posted close 3-2 and 4-3 triumphs against USA’s Deshawn Crocklem and Uzbekistan’s Khujanazar Nortojiev respectively in their thrilling semifinal encounters.

Women boxers, on the other hand, recorded comfortable wins apart from Kirti’s 3-2 victory against Kazakhstan’s Assel Toktassyn.

Ravina and Bhawna outpunched their Kazakh opponents Assem Tanatar and Gulnaz Buribayeva respectively by unanimous decision. Maharashtra girl Devika got the better of USA’s Aameedah Joy with a 4-1 margin.

Meanwhile, four other Indian women in action—Tamanna (50kg), Kunjarani Devi Thongam (60kg), Muskan (75kg) and Lashu Yadav (70kg)—signed off with bronze medals after defeats in their respective semi-finals.

Indian boxers have reasserted their supremacy at the prestigious championships as 11 out of 17 quarter-finallists went on to confirm medals—highest for any country at the on-going edition, wherein close to 600 boxers have participated from 73 countries.

Uzbekistan are second with 10 confirmed medals while Ireland and Kazakhstan are placed jointly in the third position with seven medals each.

India’s dominance in the women’s section is another highlight of the tournament as eight pugilists have secured medals which is most for any country followed by Kazakhstan (5) and Uzbekistan (4).

Bhawna, Devika will fight for gold on Friday along with all three male boxers while others will play their finals on Saturday (November 26) at the same venue.

Most youth results are bogus. I don’t buy into even an iota of their significance. Don’t want to take away the sheen from the youngsters, but they amount to nothing in the real world. I’ve never seen any reports of junior results in the USA except a few like tennis grand slam juniors, which do mean something. Maybe golf does too. Even those are rare. All these in India are just good enough for exorbitant felicitations and copy and paste coverage in media.

No tournament is irrelevant......I know a lot of good boxing nations do not perform well in tournament...it may be because they didn't sent their best Or may be our junior level is good but as they reach their adult age, they didn't get enough tournaments as boxers of England or Ireland gets
