TEHRAN, Aug. 29 (MNA) – The 75-kg Iranian boxing fighter Hirbod Eslami has bagged a first ever gold medal for Iran at 2021 ASBC Asian Junior Boxing Championships in Dubai, UAE.

On the last day of the 2021 ASBC Asian Junior Boxing Championships in Dubai, UAE, Iran's 75 kg boxer Hirbod Eslami defeated his powerful Uzbek opponent to win the gold medal.

In the 75-kg final, Eslami narrowly defeated Nekboyev to win the gold medal for Iran for the first time in years.
