The first in action was Chinese Taipei's Lai Chu-En who came up short against the very talented Enrico Le Cruz from Holland in a 60KG bout. Lai showed some talent but was unable to show the consistency of his foe who was a worthy winner.
At 69KG we were impressed by Mongolian Tuvshinbat Byamba who took a unanimous decision over Argentinian Alberto Palmeta, with a very good performance. Byamba may not be the most talented but he's aggressive and like most Mongolian fighters he's physically very strong, as Palmeta found out. Also at 69KG's was was China's Liu Wei who was clearly beaten by exciting Lithuanian Eimantas Stanionis, who is likely to be in some fun fights during this competition.
Later today we'll see sever notable Asian fighters including Thailand's Amnat Ruenroeng and Saylom Ardee and Azerbaijan's talented Teymur Mammadov.
