“London Olympics will have a great role in Azerbaijani sport. This Olympics will differ in both number of sportsmen and strength”, Secretary General of the National Olympic Committee, vice-president of Box Federation Aghajan Abiyev told apasport.az website, APA reports.

Experienced specialist especially noted that we left for London with strong staff: “Now there are many world and European champions and medalists in our Olympic team. We expect for medals from them. As regards the boxing, being represented in London Olympics with 8 sportsmen is success of our federation. There are world and European champions, and two silver medalists of the Mundial in our team.
