In the final of the boxing tournament held on Wednesday in Kazan Normatov has yielded to the Russian boxer Andrei Zamkovoi.

"I have a lack of experience (at the Universiade), Zamkovoi is one year older than me. At the next competition one needs to come and win, there will be the World Cup (in Almaty) ahead.Maybe a victory will come at the Olympics, maybe at the Universiade," the boxer said adding that at the University Games he made a lot of mistakes.

The Russian boxers have won six gold and two silver medals in the eight represented categories.
