Phal Sophat fights for London Olympics place

Cambodia’s boxing specialist, Phal Sophat, will vie for a dream berth in the London Olympics at an Asian qualifying tournament in Almati, Kazakhstan, this week.

The 24-year-old pugilist will compete in the under-60kg category in the event, which runs from today until April 15.

“We want to be in the Olympics. The chance of getting a wild card is slim, so Sophat has been training hard to be able to get a ticket to London,” his coach Ven Sophal, who is accompanying the fighter to Kazakhstan, said.
