22 September 2017 News

The fourth competition day was held in the 21st edition of the EUBC European Confederation Junior Boxing Championships in Albena, Bulgaria where the preliminary stage finished. Altogether 32 preliminary and 12 quarter-final bouts were held which meant 12 boxers are already medallists in the EUBC European Confederation Junior Boxing Championships.

The best 92 boxers remained in action and among them 80 athletes have got the chance to join to the guaranteed 12 medallists in Albena. The following weight classes were in action on Day4: light flyweight (48kg), light bantamweight (52kg), featherweight (57kg), lightweight (60kg), light welterweight (63kg), light middleweight (70kg) and light heavyweight (80kg).

Bulgaria’s Podgorica Junior Trophy winner Yasen Radev moved up to the light flyweight (48kg) in the recent months and met with Hungary’s junior No.1 Richard Bernath in the important quarter-final. The Bulgarian boxer delivered his best ever performance and eliminated his favourite rival in the fourth competition day which means Radev is a guaranteed medallist in Albena.

Moldova’s Junior National Champion Adrian Bucsa, whose elder brother Dorin was gold medallist in the 2014 EUBC European Confederation Youth Boxing Championships, worked hard in the recent one year to reach the European top level. The Moldovan light bantamweight (52kg) boxer was enough shape today to beat Lithuania’s Nedas Gudomskas.

Montenegro’s Nenad Markovic competed already in three editions of the EUBC continental events in the schoolboys and junior levels. The 16-year-old boxer met with Germany’s Hamad Rasul in the preliminary round of the light bantamweight (52kg) and his confident style delivered for him a place in the quarter-finals.

Russia’s Junior National Champion Boris Karibian arrived to Albena as one of the main favourite of the light bantamweight (52kg) but he needed to do his very best in his preliminary contest against Czech Republic’s Kevin Godla. Karibian, whose elder brother Albert is member of the Russian elite team and WSB squad, did superb last round and marched to the last eight in Albena.

Slovakia’s Alex Triebel and Kosovo’s Erdonis Maliqi both won their previous contests with superb performance in Albena but they met each other in the important quarter-final of the featherweight (57kg). The Slovakian boxer had enough advantage after the second round to win their key contest which meant Triebel achieved his best ever result during his career with that guaranteed bronze medal.

Kosovo’s Podgorica Junior Trophy silver medallist Drilon Thaci is an experienced junior boxer from the international events who worked well in the fourth competition day when he met with Lithuania’s Vitas Karosas. The Kosovan lightweight (60kg) boxer was aggressive in the contest and deserved his triumph against his Baltic rival.

Lithuania’s Aleksandr Trofimcuk lost his first contest in the 2016 EUBC European Confederation Schoolboys Boxing Championships therefore he was more than motivated in Albena. The Lithuanian light middleweight (70kg) talent is only 15 but his fighting spirit and effective punches amazed the crowd against Slovakia’s Lukas Ferneza. Trofimcuk advanced to the semi-final where his next opponent will be Bulgaria’s Stoil Stanoev.

Ukraine’s EUBC European Schoolboys Champion and two-time Junior National Champion Yurii Maidakov eliminated Turkey’s Kaan Aykutsak in the first preliminary round and continued his winning path against Germany’s Salvatore Cotrone in the quarter-final of the light middleweight (70kg).

Italy’s Mattias Zdrinca had only 18 contests before his contest against Germany’s Berkan Sahin but he was able to do successful tactic on Day4. The Podgorica Junior Trophy winner Italian light heavyweight (80kg) boxer knew his German opponent and found the best fighting distance in their narrow contest which flew him into the last eight in Albena.
