"According to preliminary information we expect over 200 boxers from 29 countries. And, as the President of our Confederation Serik Konakbayev noted, it is crucial for us to see participation of such countries as Afghanistan, Bhutan, Libya, Pakistan and Syria. Despite the challenging situation, these states find ways to develop boxing", Executive Director of Asian Boxing Confederation Bagdaulet Turekhanov said


    Full rosters of 13 countries were registered as follows: India, Iran, Jordan, Kazakhstan, China, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Uzbekistan and South Korea.
