Durens, Ogayre assured of Asian Elite bronze after sensational wins

In his international debut, light flyweight Mark Lester Durens made quick work of his opponent in the 2021 Asian Elite Men’s and Women’s Boxing Championships held at the Grand Ballroom of the Le Meridien Hotel in Dubai, UAE, Tuesday evening (Manila time). 

Durens’ tough right proved to be too much for Kuwait’s Mansour Khalefah in a first round referee stoppage win to advance to the semifinals of his weight division.

Stunning his opponent with 10 seconds left in the opening stanza, Durens sensed blood, connecting on a powerful overhand right for a standing count. It proved to be enough as referee Dr. Beki Poroska deemed that the Kuwaiti could no longer continue.

Durens will next face Indonesia’s Kornelis Kwangu Langu, who defeated Kazakhstan’s Daniyal Sabut via a dominant unanimous decision, on Friday.
