After being beaten in the first round, the 19-year-old Belarusian boxer managed to recollect his spirits in the second round. Two out of three judges, who assessed the fight, couldn’t determine the winner. 

The third round was won by the more experienced Irish boxer, with a final result of 30:27, 29:28, 29:28. Dmitry Asanov has earned bronze at the World Championship, thus guaranteeing himself a ticket to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Tickets are being given to all World Championship prize winners in the under 56kg category.

Asanov’s ticket is the first and only one for Belarusian boxers. Among other wrestlers at the World Championship, Mikhail Dolgolevets went further than the others, reaching the quarterfinals of the under 81kg category. Taking into account that there are no Belarusians in the APB and WSB series tournaments, their last chance to reach the Games will be the qualifying Olympic tournament, being held next June, which will determine 39 participants for the Rio Olympiad.
