Post Comments Thread For: Former Amateur Great Vladimir Yengibaryan Passes Away At 80

A tragic death of Omar Henry on Feb. the first wasn’t the only loss boxing has suffered on this date. News has come out, that Vladimir Yengibaryan, the second Olympic champion in the history of Soviet boxing, passed away at age 80 in Los Angeles, California.

Yengibaryan, a proud Armenian and the native of its capital Yerevan, started his career as a bantamweight. His first of three European championship wins came in the 1953 competition, where he captured the Gold as a lightweight. Yengibaryan would repeat honors in 1957 and 1959 - both in the light welterweight division - and also captured Bronze in the 1955 Games.

His crowning achievement as an amateur came in the 1956 Summer Games in Melbourne, scoring four consecutive decisions to capture Olympic Gold in the welterweight division. Yengibaryan was one of three Soviet boxers to win Gold that year, marking the beginning of its dominance in Olympic competition. [Click Here To Read More]
