Eye of the Tiger is happy to announce that Erik Israyelyan, a young Armenian athlete, has taken the next step in his promising career and turned professional as part of the EOTTM team.
The young athlete has taken the amateur boxing world by storm, dominating the 60 kg. category, and earning gold at the IBA’s World Olympic Junior Boxing Championship in La Nucia, Spain, in 2022. That honour was the crowning achievement of his methodical progression through a series of major tournaments. In April 2022, he was crowned European junior champion and took home gold, after earning the bronze in 2021.
Along the way, the young athlete has fought in more than 100 bouts against quality opponents, and this has not only helped him develop the solid skills necessary to face off against top professional opponents, but also become an elite fighter.
