AZERBAIJAN BECAME CHAMPION

IV Universal Fight Championship ended on November 30 in Kiev. Two Azerbaijani athletes Kenan Mehdiyev (under 70 kg) and Samir Ilyasli (80 kg) won silver medals, while Zaur Islamov (90 kg) gained bronze medal.

Elsever Bagirov (95 kg) was illegally deprived of his golden medal because of referee’s intrigues. However, Azerbaijani side appealed against this decision and gained the justice from the panel of judges. Elsever became the gold medal winner.

E. Bagirov is Lachin born, 26, and trains in the sporting society “Gemruk” and the five-year student of the Azerbaijan State Academy of Physical Culture and Sports.
