Career highlight: Gold medalist – Summer Universiade Kazan 2013
2012 Ukrainian National Champion Dmytro Mytrofanov possesses a deep determination and resilience characteristic of so many boxers from his native country.
The man from Chernigov has already managed to garner a wealth of experience on the international circuit boxing in another of AIBA’s pioneering tournaments, the World Series of Boxing (WSB). Competing first for Mexico Guerreros before switching to home team Ukraine Otamans, Mytrofanov has won three of his four bouts in the competition.
In the ring, the 2012 Ukrainian National Champion likes to mix it up, walking his opponents down by working behind a strong leadright hand and then firing off hard, energy-sapping body shots, extracting the steam from his opponent.
Mytrofanov’s blend of sheer will and sublime skill makes him a dangerous competitor capable of going all the way in the APB tournament.
