Pencho Milkov met with the athlete of Lokomotiv Boxing Club Viktorio Iliev and his coach Alexey Ribchev. The mayor awarded the young Ruse boxer for the title in the category up to 60 kg at the European Boxing Championships for juniors and girls, which took place a few days ago in Porec, Croatia.

"Your victories in the ring are not only a triumph that is appreciated by the sporting public, but they also determine how you will influence society as a whole and especially adolescents. My advice to you is to influence others so that they see in your face a calm and balanced person who uses his strength to take care of the weaker ones", the mayor addressed the Ruse athlete. He wished Viktorio Iliev success in the next competitions for which he is preparing.

In the city of Porec the boxer showed his best and defeated the Ukrainian Bogdan Celdik with a score of 4:3 in the final match. His coaches in Croatia, as part of the national team, were the Olympic champion Stoyka Krasteva and Fikret Eredzebov.

The young boxer shared his expectations for the upcoming Olympic Games, which will take place this summer in Paris. He has won a quota for participation and hopes to represent Ruse and Bulgaria properly.

In 2023, Viktorio Iliev won a gold medal at the Junior World Boxing Cup in Budva, Montenegro. For his success he was again awarded a cash prize by the Mayor of Ruse Municipality.

The meeting was also attended by the Deputy Mayor Borislav Rachev and the Director of ME "Sports Properties" Lachezar Ivanov.
