Germany’s Franklyn Dwomoh delivered the fastest success of the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships

The Germans arrived at the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships with a new team but some of the boxers are well-experienced in the line-ups. Franklyn Dwomoh competed at EUBC Championships between 2016 and 2018 and he regained his place in the top squad after two and half years of break.

The German has just moved up to the light welterweight (64kg) before the start of the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships where he faced first with Hungary’s newcomer Patrik Petriman. The Hungarian had the massive height advantage in this preliminary contest but he was not able to use it in the first exchanges. Dwomoh’s left-handed hook was more than heavy for the inexperienced Hungarian who went down to the floor. The German boxer needed only 21 seconds to decide the contest, therefore, his debut was just a simple warm-up for him.

Trofimcuk put the Croatian under pressure also in the third round and his impressive power was the difference today. The strong Lithuanian exceeded the previous expectations and eliminated Grabic by a large margin of differences.
