Artayev wins Athens award
Bakhtiyar Artayev
Olympic welterweight champion Bakhtiyar Artayev has been unveiled as the best boxer of the Athens boxing tournament.

Artayev won the Val Barker award after ending his Games with victory over Cuban Lorenzo Aragon on Sunday.

The 21-year-old Kazak, who had defeated Russian double Olympic gold medallist Oleg Saitov in his semi-final, won a 36-26 decision after a fierce contest.

He dented an otherwise perfect day for the Cubans, who won each of the other three finals they contested.

Yan Bhartelemy Varela, Guillermo Rigondeaux and Mario Kindelan added to two titles won by Cuba on Saturday.
