The Bulgarians and the Russians shine in the EUBC European Confederation Junior Boxing Championships

21 September 2017 News

The third competition day was held in the 21st edition of the EUBC European Confederation Junior Boxing Championships in Albena, Bulgaria where 40 contests were in the official program. Bulgaria and Russia were the key nations in the third competition day but Kosovo also won bout today.

The following weight classes were in action on Day3: pinweight (46kg), flyweight (50kg), bantamweight (54kg), featherweight (57kg) and middleweight (75kg). The winners of today’s bouts are in the last eight and these boxers need only one further step to get a medal in the EUBC European Confederation Junior Boxing Championships.

Georgia’s Heydar Aliyev Junior Tournament silver medallist Luka Kublashvili eliminated his German rival in the first preliminary round and he had another hard job in the EUBC European Confederation Junior Boxing Championships. The 16-year-old Georgian pinweight (46kg) boxer found the best recipe against Ukraine’s EUBC European Schoolboys Champion Oleg Laguta quickly and defeated his favourite rival.

Ireland’s Jude Gallagher eliminated England’s EUBC European Schoolboys Champion Cameron Paul in the first preliminary round which was a sensation on Day1. Gallagher’s second victim was another star of the pinweight (46kg), Azerbaijan’s Heydar Aliyev Junior Tournament winner Maksud Khasmetov in Albena.

Denmark’s Sigurd Boesen was born only in 2002 but he has been competing in the international events since 2014. The young Danish talent delivered another small sensation at the pinweight (46kg) where he was enough quick to outpoint Hungary’s Zoltan Bernat in a spectacular contest in Albena.

Bulgaria’s 15-year-old Nikolay Atanasov missed his medal contest in the 2016 EUBC European Confederation Schoolboys Boxing Championships in Zagreb therefore his target is a podium place among the juniors in Albena. Atanasov, who won the gold medal in the Podgorica Trophy this year, was more effective than Estonia’s Mark Andrejev in their flyweight (50kg) bout.

Finland’s Gokmen Gorgin competed only Northern European events during his career but in his first ever continental tournament he did more than well against Israel’s Akram Ghazi and advanced to the quarter-finals in Albena. In the same bantamweight (54kg) Latvia’s Arturs Ivanovs did a small surprise when he eliminated his neighbouring rival, Lithuania’s experienced Linas Lukosevicius.

Kosovo also sent a team to the EUBC European Confederation Junior Boxing Championships to Albena where their No.1 Erdonis Maliqi controlled his contest against Slovenia’s Ziga Rebernic in their featherweight (57kg) bout. Slovakia’s Alex Triebel, whose sister is EUBC European Women’s Junior Champion, gave in everything in the final minutes against Israel’s Ahmad Nassar and turned back their contest in the same division.

Nikita Chirvon is one of the best Russian junior boxer who won the EUBC European Confederation Schoolboys Boxing Championships in 2015 and the Children of Asia Games in 2016. As an experienced junior middleweight (75kg) athlete won all of the rounds against Finland’s No.1 Nikita Nystedt and secured his place in the last eight.

Croatia’s Gabrijel Veocic has competed three EUBC continental events in the recent three years and his best result is a bronze medal from the last edition. Veocic, whose father is his coach, launched powerful punches against Lithuania’s Aras Dudenas and dominated his minutes in the ring which meant he advanced to the Top8.

Hungary’s Heydar Aliyev Junior Tournament silver medallist David Koczian lost to Greece’s Markos Michalopoulos in the Podgorica Trophy Tournament in Montenegro but this time he did a classical revenge in Albena. The Hungarian middleweight (75kg) boxer, who is member of the national squad since 2014, knew his opponent’s weak points and won the bout by unanimous decision.
