(ANSA) – YEREVAN, MAY 29 – The Italian heavyweight (92 kg) Abbes Aziz Mouhiidine, vice world champion, qualified for the final of his category of the European Boxing Championships in Yerevan by beating the British Lewis 5-0 in the semifinal Williams. Tomorrow, for the gold, the Irpinia fighter will face the Spaniard Emmanuel Reyes, who today beat the Armenian Narek Manasyan 5-0. The winner will also receive a hundred thousand dollars in prize, 50 thousand for those who will be silver.
Instead, it is bronze for the other two Italian boxers (in total today there were seven) who got into the ring in this last round of semifinals. To say the least questionable was the verdict that deprived Federico Serra, in his 51 kg match, of the victory against the other British MacDonald, who constantly suffered from the pressure and blows of the blue but was declared the winner 3-2. . Defeated also Michele Baldassi, who ‘dances’ in the ring but fails to get the better of the Belgian Usturoi, who wins 5-0. It is therefore third place for the blue.
The balance of Italboxing in these European Championships, where it had brought 12 athletes, is 5 bronze medals, while to know the metal of the other two we will have to wait for the finals of Commey and Mouhiidine tomorrow. (HANDLE).
