Hovhannes Bachkov claimed his third European title and second at the European Men's Boxing Championships, with the Armenian standing at the top of the podium in front of a home crowd in Yerevan.

Facing France's Lounès Hamraoui in the under-63.5 kilogram final, the Olympic bronze medallist lived up to expectations, beating his opponent by unanimous decision.

His other European title came at the 2019 European Games in Minsk.

Two more Armenians made finals today, but both had to settle for silver medals.

First, Belgium's Vasile Usturoi defeated Artur Bazeyan by a 3-2 split decision in the under-57kg final, while Georgia's Georgii Kushinashvili took the under-86kg gold medal ahead of home favourite Rafayel Hovhannisyan by a 4-0 margin on points.

Aziz Mouhiidine from Italy unanimously claimed the under-92kg title with a victory over Enmanuel Reyes of Spain, and Spain were denied in the final bout of the night too when Germany's Nelvie Tiafeck defeated Ayoub Ghadfa by referee's stoppage.

Artush Gomtsyan of Georgia claimed the under-60kg crown by beating Spanish Olympian José Quiles by a 3-2 split decision.

Despite making four finals, Spain's only title today went to Martín Molina in the under-51kg category with a victory over Kiaran MacDonald of England.

Georgia ended the day top of the table, with its third gold medal going to world bronze medallist Sakhil Alakhverdovi in the under-48kg final over Bulgarian Ergynal Sebahtin.

Lasha Guruli would have hoped to make that four, but he lost the under-67kg final to Serbian Vakhid Abbasov by unanimous decision.

Serbia finished second on the medal table, with another gold coming in the under-80kg contest.

Artjom Ageyev defeated Alfred Commey of Italy by a 4-1 split decision.

Billal Bennama of France, the two-time world bronze medallist, claimed the under-54kg gold with a victory over Dylan Eagleson, but Ireland did secure a gold medal thanks to Gabriel Dossen in the under-75kg final, with the 22-year-old beating England's Lewis Richardson unanimously.

Finally, Harris Akbar secured the under-71kg gold medal for England in an all-British final against Garan Croft of Wales by unanimous decision.
