EUBC: Armenian boxer scores beautiful victory over Turkish opponent, 2 more medals (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

During the EUBC Youth European Boxing Championships in Budva, Armenia’s representative Henrik Sahakyan (51 kg) scored a beautiful victory over a Turkish boxer and secured at least the bronze medal.

During the match with Cinar Mehmetan in the quarter final, Sahakyan was constantly enterprising and deprived his opponent of the opportunity to act freely. All the referees granted the victory of 5-0 to the Armenian boxer.

Erik Israelyan (60 kg) also scored a beautiful victory after leading a difficult and persistent struggle against a Spanish boxer and outscoring the latter, but not by the unanimous decision of the referees.

Armenia already has three participants in the semi-final, that is, at least three bronze medals.

On October 19, Elida Kocharyan (60 kg) made it to the semi-final.
