Nemat YOKUBOV (Uzbekistan), a gold medal winner in the up to 90 kg weight category among men.

– I won my third gold medal at the Asian SAMBO Championships. As Roy Jones Jr. said, “Becoming a champion is a lot easier than holding that title.” I succeeded to win, and I wish to thank the Uzbekistan SAMBO Association for their assistance in my preparation for the competition, for the training camp that we passed in the run-up to the event.

The final fight went off successfully: first I managed to perform the "fireman’s carry", then conduct a hold. To me, this victory is very significant, but my ultimate goal is to win the World Championships. That's why I regard these competitions as an important stage on my journey to the World Championships.

The Asian SAMBO Championships was held in the Indian city of New Delhi from September 13 to 15. Medals of the tournament were won by representatives of 19 countries of the continent. General sponsor of the tournament is Rosneft oil company.
