Professional Armenian woman boxer Tamara Elen-Hovhannisyan is already well recognized in the international arena. In December 2004 in Siberia she won the title of the champion of Asia, and before that she had become the World Champion in kick-boxing.
At the end of February Tamara will leave for the USA to take part in the world championship of box, where she will fight with sportswomen from USA, Spain, and Canada. Up to now Elen-Hovhannisyan has paid all the expenses herself, but now she will leave for the USA on the invitation of the Armenians living in the USA, among whom is David Torosyan, a well-known boxer of Soviet Armenia, who later on worked as a coach.
It is also worth mentioning that Tamara is the only professional boxer woman and she continues to represent Armenia in the international arena.
