“I’m not considering a transition to professional boxing yet” – CBS TV STREAMS

20-year-old amateur boxing world champion Yuri Zakhareev said that he is not going to turn pro yet, and also spoke about his plans for the future.

“Recently, I returned from a tournament in Hungary, where very good and strong athletes from many countries, the strongest in amateur boxing, competed. I believe that it is impossible to stop at a certain peak of form, it is necessary and I really want to improve more and more.

At this stage, I am not considering a move to professional boxing. My dream and my goal is the Olympic Games in Paris and victory there. And also the victory of my country in this cruel war. Glory to Ukraine,” said the boxer.

The Paris Olympic Games will take place in the summer of 2024.
