03 April 2017 News

18 Nations in Medal: two golds for England and Romania; 1 gold for France, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Georgia and Bulgaria

The numbers and the level expressed by boxers from the first championship Under-22 have passed most optimistic forecasts.

The event, strongly desidered by President EUBC Franco Falcinelli, confirmed the validity of the idea.

The organization was at the height of the event and a applause is aimed at EUBC Executive Director Alexander Yegorov who handled the event in the best possible way.

The ring set up in Braila, the city on the Danube delta in Romania, have risen nearly 200 boxers and many of these fighters have the qualities to continue into a career at the top.

It was a tournament under the banner of balance: out of 30 participating countries 18 Nations have arrived in the semifinals and 12 in the final (of which 8 won gold).

Average age of boxers

42 boxers were born in 1998, between 18 and 19 years old, 25% of total participants. The average age of the winners is 20.7 years; well below the limit.

Three of the winners are less than 20 years: Asenov (52 kg), Titary (56 kg) and Georgian Madiev (69 kg) has just turned 19 years old in February.

The oldest is the Ukrainian Khyzhaniak, already Youth champion in 2012, and vice-2011 European Junior, who last March 8 has accomplished 22 years.

Many of the participants took part in the Junior and Youth European and World Championships. Among those present, Italians Arecchia and Di Serio, the Moldova Bucsa, Croatian Plantic and Russian Gadzhimamedov, European champions youth 2014 and 2015, as well as German Kadiru who won in 2014 and 2015.
