In the semi-final match against Sweden’s Clarence Goyeram, Pavel Kostromin had received a cut to the brow but had claimed victory. In the final, against Lithuanian Eimantas Stanionis, Pavel received several sharp blows to the same place, blinding him with blood. Nevertheless, Pavel continued fighting, having been given medical assistance.

Eimantas took the lead after the first two rounds, despite Pavel putting up a worthy fight. Sadly, the referee gave preference to Stanionis both times due to Kostromin requiring medical assistance. In the third round, however, the flow of blood was significant enough for the referee to stop the match and award victory to Stanionis.

Belarusian Sergey Loban (52kg), Vazgen Safaryanets (60kg), Yevgeny Dolgolevets (64kg), Vitaly Bondarenko (75kg) and Yan Sudzilovsky (over 91kg) also fought at the 2015 European Championship in Bulgaria.

In the overall team standings, the Russian squad finished in first place, with four gold awards, followed by Ireland and the UK.

Pavel Kostromin won bronze at the 2013 European Boxing Championship, held in Minsk.
