The Armenian Boxing Federation President Arthur Gevorgyan at the meeting with reporters summed up the last year and spoke about future changes.
“Yes, we close the year without Olympic qualifications, but we shouldn’t resent. We had only one opportunity at the World Championship and we saw how close Hovhannes Bachkov was to winning a qualification. He fought perfectly and lost to one of the best boxers of the world. England which is considered a boxing country hasn’t got a qualification yet, Ukraine, too. We still have chances of obtaining qualification. There are two qualifiers in Istanbul and Baku. We are ready to fight for qualifications. The Boxing Federation has accepted a new order for coaches. From now on, all coaches must take the test and get a certificate. The federation will organize seminars before the exam which will be held by a testing system. Unlicensed coach’s alumnus won’t take part in the Armenian Championship. It was previously decided to organize a boxing qualifying tournament in December but the Sports Council considered it inexpedient”, Gevorgyan said.
