Armenian boxer renounces champion belt

Armenian boxer Karen Chukhajyan, who represents Ukraine, has renounced the WBA International champion belt in the semi-middleweight professional boxing category.

“We renounced the belt. In the beginning, we wanted to defend the title, but we faced hepatitis and then the coronavirus. In addition, we split from Sparta Boxing Promotions, and at that moment, there was no other person to organize the duel. This is why we decided to renounce the belt,” XSPORT cites Karen Chukhajyan.

On February 1, 2020, Chukhajyan had defeated Russian boxer Sergey Vorobyov and scored the vacant WBA International belt.
