Zakaria Ismail (75kg to 81kg):
 "In Penang, he did well and beat the Malaysian SEA Games representative, so I think he can do well at the SEA Games, too."

Leong Jun Hao (64kg to 70kg): "He's a strong boy and he too has improved a lot. I think he can surprise."

Ridhwan Ahmad (56kg to 60kg): "For him the target is definitely gold, after the two bronzes in 2011 and 2013. He has dropped down a weight class so he's going to be stronger than a lot of his rivals, and he's very positive."

Solihin Nordin (60kg to 64kg): "I feel the referee was too eager to stop Solihin's semi-final bout at the 2013 SEA Games. He won a bronze even though he lacked experience then, but he has gotten a lot more exposure since then and swopped weight classes with Ridhwan. I believe in him."
