The Libyan boxing team has made a successful start at the Boxing International Championship being held in Morocco, even though it was the first experience for some of the team members in an international competition.

In the 16th round of the 63 kg category, boxer Abdelbaset Belkhair took the win over his Swiss opponent Sarmiento with a 4-1 score, according to the results published by the Libyan Olympic Committee.

His team-mate, Osama Berko, took over Guinean Al-Hassan, 3-2, in the 80 kg group in the same round.

On the other hand, Assem Doku lost his fight against Italian boxer Salvatore 5-0 in the quarter-finals of the 75 kg group.

The Libyan team consists of five young boxers, among other athletes from 53 countries competing for the Moroccan International Championship title supervised by the International Boxing Federation.
