Turkmenistan was represented by five athletes at the World Boxing Championships in Yekaterinburg.
Nuryagdy Nuryagdyev (under 81-kg weight category), who won his first fight 3:2 against Jack Bowen (Australia), showed the best results among our compatriots.
However, he lost to 22-year-old Benjamin Whittaker (Great Britain) in the 1/8 finals.
It was the first that the Turkmen boxers have prepared for the world championships under the supervision of a renowned Ukrainian coach Vladimir Dvortsov.
