Thirty-eight countries registered to attend in the EUBC European Men’s Elite Boxing Championships in Yerevan

The EUBC European Men’s Elite Boxing Championships will feature quickly after the IBA Women’s World Boxing Championships as the second highlight of the month of May. The competition will be held in Yerevan, Armenia between May 21-31 and the event will confirm the 13 new European Champions.

Armenia’s capital city, Yerevan hosted the 2009 AIBA Junior World Boxing Championships and the 2012 AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships in the past. The Armenian Boxing Federation never hosted any elite championships yet therefore the event will be a strong chance for the country to prove its very best.

Thirty-eight countries are planning to attend in the upcoming EUBC European Men’s Elite Boxing Championships: Albania, Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Moldova, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Scotland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and Wales.

The last edition of the EUBC European Men’s Elite Boxing Championships was the European Games in Minsk nearly three years ago. Bulgaria, Poland, Spain, Belarus, Great Britain, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Turkey, Finland, Great Britain, Armenia, Ireland, Ukraine and Russia won the fifteen gold medals in the 2019 European Games.

Altogether 317 boxers including 59 women attended in the European Games from record number of 44 nations in Minsk, Belarus. The women boxers will have separate EUBC European Boxing Championships later this year, only the male athletes can compete in the upcoming Yerevan edition.

The safety of all participants, the continuous medical checks, the social distancing, the hygienic preparations, the vaccines check, wearing masks and all of the health controls are the responsibility of the local organizers in Armenia to avoid any new Covid-19 cases during the EUBC European Men’s Elite Boxing Championships.
