Qais made his Olympic debut against Chatchai Butdee the experienced Thai Boxer and unfortunately this wasn't the start Qais had hoped for after a knockdown in the second round. His opponent ranked 7th in the world took the win at 0 - 3 and goes through to the next round. Following the defeat Ashfaq told BBC Sport: “I'm in the best shape of my life. I guess he's a lot older than me he's been to three Olympics and that maybe helped him.”
At only 23 years of age, Qais has achieved a great career in boxing so far and has the potential to further his success in the future.
