The 3rd year dental student Tobias Eilits successfully combines studying and sports. The German student has been studying in the English Language Training Programme, and despite his young age, he has already won numerous boxing matches.
Tobias took part in two very strong matches and won over Nikolay Ivanov from “Slavia” – Sofia and the national boxer Vladimir Georgiev, who is also a part of the team of Cherno More – Burgas.

The good news about our sportsman does not stop here. He made a strong impression on the coach of the Bulgarian national team Mr. Palmi Ranchev, who personally invited him to join our national boxers.
