AMMAN — Jordan has a new Arab youth boxing champion after Bader Smreen clinched gold in Egypt, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

The youngster won the 69kg weight, beating Egypt’s Ramadan Bakri in the final fight. There was more success for Jordan with Fu’ad Ushosh winning bronze in the 64kg, while Mohammad Al Zaboub took bronze in the 52kg category.

The success will boost Jordan’s prospects for medals at the Asian Youth Championships taking place in Thailand in April, which will act as a qualifier for the Youth Olympic Games to be held in Buenos Aires this summer.
