The Light Welterweight (64 kg) division of AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) has already produced many exciting contents, and two more world class battles are scheduled for Saturday night at Palazzetto dello Sport , Manerba del Garda Italy.

Number one ranked Artem Harutyunyan (GER) impressed despite losing to APB Champion Artem Zakaryan (RUS) in the Inaugural Title Match, and the German star begins his attempt to meet the Russian titleholder for the third time when he faces fourth ranked Evaldas Petrauskas (LIT) in Italy.

2013 European Championships bronze medalist Harutyunyan has proven to be an excellent addition to APB, with his entertaining style earning him a legion of new fans.

The 25-year-old has enjoyed victories over both Abdelkader Chadi (ALG) and Boris Georgiev (BUL), while his lone defeats have come against the phenomenal Zakaryan.

Petrauskas won a bronze at the London 2012 Olympic Games at just 20-years-old, and has been unlucky in this competition after suffering three narrow defeats.

His APB career highlight thus far was undoubtedly his memorable stoppage over Boris Georgiev during the Ranking Phase, which gives him the power advantage over his German opponent.

Harutyunyan has experience of competing over the eight round distance however, and enjoys tremendous stamina which will become especially beneficial as the fight progresses.

Both boxers have plenty of energy and skill, which means their styles should gel very well in Italy.

The winner of the contest will next meet either second ranked Carlos Aquino (ARG) or third ranked Abdelkader Chadi (ALG) in Cycle I Round 2.

Aquino is on a three fight APB winning streak, while Chadi has won three of his first four matches in this excellent competition.

 

Match Resuls:

  • Artem HARUTYUNYAN (GER) vs Evaldas PETRAUSKAS (LTU)
  • Carlos AQUINO (ARG) vs Abdelkader CHADI (ALG)
