Khazar Student Wins Hand-to-Hand Combat

On April 15-16, 2016, Joshgun Mammadov, third-year philology major of Khazar University School of Education, competed in hand-to-hand combat (85+ kg weight class) in the Eurasian Cup in Batumi, Georgia. In the first round, Mammadov defeated Bahman, an Iranian fighter. In the second round, he was matched against a Georgian citizen of Armenian descent who refused to fight against him. In the final round, he defeated Hashim, an Iranian fighter, to take second place in the competition. We also note that Joshgun Mammadov is in the 90+ kg weight class, but there were no other fighters in that weight class so he was awarded 1st place.
