Ayoub Ghadfa has no chance: in a duel with German boxing giant Nelvi Tiavak, the Spaniard counts twice before the fight is stopped due to superiority. With such an impressive performance, the 23-year-old Tiafack is celebrating his biggest international success yet.
Five years after the last title, German boxers finally won the gold medal again at the European Championship. Bergheimer Nelvi Tiavak defeated Spain’s Ayoub Ghadfa by demolishing due to his superiority in the heavyweight final (over 92 kg) in Yerevan on Monday. The last European champion was Abbas Barao of Berlin in 2017 in welterweight.
The 23-year-old of Cameroonian origin, who is training in Cologne, put in a very impressive performance. Coach Lukas Wilashek’s protection was physically superior to the Spaniard. In the second round, a stinger had to be counted twice after swipes. At the start of the third round, the towel came off the Spanish corner as a sign of surrender.
The biggest international success
Thus Tiafack celebrated its biggest international success. Three years earlier, he won the bronze medal at the European Games in Minsk and reached the quarter-finals at the World Championships in the same year. Surprisingly, he missed the Tokyo Olympics last year. Then the 120-kilogram man changed his diet and lost eleven kilos. Tiafack wants to participate in the Olympic Games in Paris in two years and then go to the pros.
The German Boxing Federation represented nine athletes in the Armenian capital. Six made it to the quarter-finals. Magomed Shachidov of Munich lost in the semi-finals to Garan Croft of Wales. Thus, he was denied entry to the final and had to take the bronze medal.
