AMMAN — There was heartbreak for Jordanian boxer Obadah Al Kesbah who missed out on the chance for a prestigious gold medal at the 45th Chemistry Cup in Germany due to injury, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

The 64kg fighter was unable to compete in the final due to an injury he suffered during his brilliant semifinal victory over India’s Diheraj. It means he will have to settle for silver, which is added to the bronze medal that Ziad Ishaish won in the 75kg category.

Next up for the national team is the Thailand Boxing Championships that will be held in Bangkok from June 28-July 7. The team is preparing for the 18th Asian Games that will be held in Indonesia from August 18-September 2.
