Team USA Bags Three Golds, One Silver At 2021 World Championships

Team USA will be brimming with pride after putting up strong performances on the final days of the World Championships 2021. Team USA clinched two golds and one silver.

On his debut, Jahmal Harvey grabbed six wins in the tournament to become America’s first male elite World Champion since 2007.

He defeated Vasile Usturoi, 2019 World Champion Mirazizbek Mirzakhalilov, Brazil’s Luiz Chalot, Thailand’s Rujakran Juntrong and France’s 2020 Olympian Samuel Kistohurry.

Harvey is the first featherweight champ since Rocky Juarez achieved the feat in 1999.

The light-heavyweight World Championship title was awarded to Rahim Gonzales.

He came from behind for the second fight in a row to make history. The light-heavyweight star overcame a first-round knockdown and a second, standing an eight count in the second round to win with a 3-2 decision. In his fight against Belarus’ Aliaksei Alfiorau, the American also suffered a low blow.

Flyweight Roscoe Hill just fell short of becoming the third American at the event to bag gold.

He suffered a heavy 5-0 loss to Saken Bibossinov, who won bronze at the 2020 Olympic and 2019 World Championships.

Hill’s silver marks the first men’s elite flyweight medal since Rau’see Warren won it back in 2011.
