Career Highlight: Bronze Medalist – London 2012 Olympic Games

David Ayrapetyan is carrying on the tradition of his country’s success in the light-flyweight division, taking the baton from the great Sergey Kazakov, who was once a dominant force at 49kg.

The Russian has enjoyed a rich vein of success since his gold in the 2006 European Amateur Championships in Plovdiv, which he has carried onto world level. Ayrapetyan has performed at the highest level on the international stage, gaining a much sought-after podium place at the 2012 London Olympic Games by winning an impressive bronze medal.

He has also won a host of honors at the World Championships, winning silver and bronze medals at the 2009 and 2011 World Championships respectively, truly cementing his reputation as one of the stars of world boxing.

Boasting a longer career than most of his contemporaries, Ayrapetyan will be looking to use his reputation and ring experience to full effect in the APB.
