Boxer Rouzbahani breaks though to Olympic quarterfinals
Iran's boxer Ehsan Rouzbahani has advanced to the quarterfinals of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The Iranian 24-year-old beat Bahram Muzaffer from Turkey 18-12 at the Excel Centre, London.
“It was a very hard fight. As I had already said, I didn’t know my rival. Anyway, I tried my best and won the match,” light heavyweight boxer said.
Rouzbahani will fight Adilbek Niyazymbetov from Kazakhstan in the quarterfinals
on August 8.
“I’ve not faced my Kazakh opponent so far but I know he is a powerful boxer. I will get advice from my coaches and I am going to defeat him,” Rouzbahani said.
The Iranian had defeated Colombia's Jeysson Monroy in his first match.
