Career highlight: Gold medallist – Asian Boxing Championships Amman 2013
Spindly Kazakh technician Anton Pinchuk is a neat, clever boxer who makes his mark on a fight by using a dominant jab, something seldom seen in the Heavyweight division.
Owing to his lengthy arm span, Pinchuk uses every inch of a significant reach advantage to control the action of a fight, manipulating his opponent from distance with a prodding jab and outworking them from range.
From the dominance established by these tactics, together with his tidy work on the outside, Pinchuk likes to follow up by slicing through opponents’ guards with a strong and powerful straight right hand.
A fighter from the Kostanai region of Kazakhstan, Pinchuk won his country’s National Championship in 2012 and one year later was the gold medalist in the 2013 Asian Boxing Championships in Amman, Jordan.
Having stamped his authority as one of the best boxers on the continent, Pinchuk now looks ahead to doing the same on a worldwide scale in the APB on his quest for Rio 2016 Olympic Games qualification.
