Career highlight: Gold medallist – AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships Baku 2010

The increase in the number of rounds in the APB format should suit Artur Bril perfectly. The German youngster has already competed in three seasons of the World Series of Boxing (WSB), giving him the benefit of extremely apt physical conditioning.

Having already recorded significant success by claiming the 2010 Youth World Boxing Championships gold medal, Bril will surely be looking to assert himself amongst the competition’s lightweights, mixing it with the best in a field of immense talent to capture his first major senior title.

In the ring, he has a relaxed, flowing manner and can absorb an opponent’s shots as well as force them to make mistakes. In attack, he likes to fire off quick, violent combinations before quickly repositioning himself out of range, making him a tricky addition to the 60kg division.
