But the boxer of Leganes, which is measured in Kazakh Saken Bibossinov, but Escobar has already demonstrated what he is capable of doing in a ring in the round of 16 against a five-time European champion like the Bulgarian. Daniel Asenov, which he clearly surpassed.
The Kazakh Bibossinov – who left the French in the account Billal bennama– He is another very difficult man and even more so at -52 kg, since we remember that for Tokyo Games The -49kg category was eliminated, so that those who formed it have risen to -52kg, configuring a very strong division. Resident in Shymkent and at the age of 24, Bibossinov can be considered as one of those covered boxers who little by little are carving out his career. Until 2019 Saken He does not win the national tournament of his country, and when he does, the doors are opened for him; He had done well before, but was behind other Kazakh fighters.
