Azerbaijani boxer Elvin Mamishzadeh (48 kg) has defeated Armenian rival David Ayrapetyan representing Russia at the European Championship in Moscow.
In the light of Azerbaijani boxers' failures, Elvin Mamishzadeh`s convincing victory is very important since Ayrapetyan is a 2009 world vice-champion. The 38th European Boxing Championship is underway at Moscow's Megasport Sports Palace bringing together 300 athletes from 44 countries.
On June 11, Elvin Mamishzadeh will compete with winner of the Ovanes Danielyan (Armenia) – Denis Shkarubo (Ukraine) bout.
