Armenia's boxing team member Narek Abgaryan reckons that his first opponent at the Olympics is an ''awkward'' boxer.
''There is a phrase in boxing an ''awkward opponent''. This athlete was an ''awkward opponent '' for me. I haven't come across such an awkward opponent long ago. He was very slack; it's difficult to fight against someone who is far from boxing. I already know my next rival. Though the Chinese athlete is world prize-winner he is not invincible,'' Abgaryan stressed.
Abgaryan won Uganda's representative in the first bout at the Olympic Games.
