Born near the Chechen region of Russia, Arthur Biyarslanov was four when his family left for Azerbaijan before arriving in Canada six years later in 2005, hoping for a better life and education. At age 17, he represented Canada at the 2012 AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships where he came just shy of advancing to the quarterfinals. Now a three-time Canadian champion, Biyarslanov competed at the 2014 Commonwealth Games where he lost a split decision in the second round to defending champion Manoj Kumar of India. In 2013 he began training with Adrian Teodorescu who coached, among other greats, Lennox Lewis to Olympic gold at Seoul 1988.
