Amir Hossein Dolati defended his throne in the Iranian Junior National Championships.
The Iranian Junior National Championships was held in the city of Nahavan just before the start of the ASBC Asian Confederation Junior Boxing Championships. Amir Hossein Dolati was able to defend his title in the event in Nahavan and proved he is one of the best Iranian boxer in this age group.
The number of the male boxers was 134 in the Iranian Junior National Championships in Nahavan which shows the background is strong in the country. Boxers who were born in 2001 and 2002 were eligible to compete in the Iranian Junior National Championships where 13 champions have been crowned.
The pinweight (46kg) is the lowest category in the junior level of boxing where Sobhan Sahraei bagged the first gold medal in the Iranian Junior National Championships following his success against Pouria Abdolmaleki. The second gold medal of the Iranian Junior National Championships was taken by 15-year-old Balal Gurchani who was too smart for Saeed Ahmadi in the final of the light flyweight (48kg). Iran's new sensation at the flyweight (50kg) 16-year-old Mohsen Azizpour eliminated Junior National Championships silver medallist Shahriar Janati in the semi-final and continued his winning path against Heydar Aliyev Junior Cup competitor Abolfazl Hajizade in the final of the national event. Azizpour exceeded the previous expectations with his title and defeated two favourites in Nahavan.
The next gold medal at the light bantamweight (52kg) was achieved by Mobin Alaii who outpointed Ali Gholami in the final. The lightweight (60kg) delivered a great final between Mohammadreza Naghavi and Ali Dehbashi in the event and the judges were hard job to pick the winner of the bout. Naghavi gave in everything in the final round and his efforts were enough to get his first national title.
