Bulgarian boxer William Cholov won the 75-kg title at the Golden Gong boxing competition. The 53rd edition of the international tournament in Skopje was held with the participation of four Bulgarian nationals, led by coach Alexander Alexandrov.

Cholov triumphed with the gold medal after leaving no chance to Orlando Holley-Sotomi (Wales) in the final. The Bulgarian demonstrated superiority throughout the match and deservedly received a 5:0 judges' vote.

In the 80 kg, Stelian Strahilov took the silver. In the final, he lost in an even match by 1:4 votes to Albanian Redis Karaj.

In the heaviest weight division (+92 kg) Petar Belberov and Yordan Morejon did not get in the ring for their last matches. Thus, they finished with silver and bronze medal respectively. In the direct match between them Belberov prevailed with 4:1 votes. In the three matches between them this year, Belberov had a 2-1 lead over the Cuban-born Morejon.
