Career highlight: Bronze medalist – AIBA World Boxing Championships Chicago 2007
Yet another boxer bringing solid international pedigree to the APB, Adem Kilicci has built a stellar CV on the international stage, culminating in winning bronze at the 2007 AIBA World Boxing Championships in Chicago.
This success was followed by a silver medal in the Mediterranean Games in 2009 in Pescara, before claiming gold in the same tournament in 2013. He also won a silver medal in the 2011 European Boxing Championships on home soil in Ankara.
Kilicci, who also won a silver medal in the 2004 World University Championships, is a boxer of beautiful balance and movement, who lands crisp, straight punches on his opponent before effortlessly gliding away from trouble and then deftly flitting back into range with hurtful punches.
Kilicci’s style and talent will make for a quality addition to the APB ranks and the Turk should relish the opportunity to achieve yet further glory in the tournament.
