NAYPYITAW: Pencak silat exponent Mohd Al Jufferi Jamari got what he wanted for his wedding next year.

The 21-year-old retained the men’s pencak silat tanding Under 70kg title at the Zeyar Thiri Indoor Stadium in Nyapyitaw on Sunday. 

It was an easy win for Al Jufferi, who won the gold as a rookie at the Indonesia Games in 2011. He was just too strong for Vietnam’s Dang Toan Thang, winning with a technical knockout (TKO) 5-0 triumph in the final.

For Al Jufferi, he is going to present the gold to his fiance Noorhafiezaah Matasuki.

“It’s a wonderful feeling to win the gold again,” said Al Jufferi.

“Noorhafiezah and I are planning to get married next year... most probably in the middle of the year. This gold is a perfect gift for her as she is also a Selangor silat exponent.”

There was, however, no joy for Ahmad Shahril Zainuddin, the other Malaysian representative in Sunday’s final.

Ahmad Shahril went down 5-0 to homester Kyaw naing Thun in the men’s Under 65kg category.
