AMMAN — Jordan’s boxers are putting in their finishing touches at the Olympic Preparation Centre ahead of the Polish International Championships in Warsaw from March 11-17, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

Jordan is sending a strong side to Europe, headed by Olympians Hussein Ishaish and Obadah Kesbeh, along with Mohammad Al Wadi, Ghassan Kesbeh, Yousef Ishaish, Zeiad Ishaish, Ali Al Hindi and female boxer Reem Shammari.

Coach Ezzeldein Aqqoun said that this event is an important stepping stone towards Jordan’s bid for medals at the 18th Asian Games this summer.

“We have a tough year ahead so this tournament will provide us with some excellent early indications of what level we are at as a squad, and as individuals,” Aqqoun said. Following Poland, the team will head to Sudan for the Arab Championships in April.

Meanwhile, the youth team is preparing for the Lithuania International Juniors Championship from March 19-25. This tournament provides Boxers with the opportunity to book places at the Youth Olympic Games that will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina this summer.
