Ukraine won four of the ten gold medals and one silver on the final day of the world amateur championships in Baku, Azerbaijan, on Saturday.

Lightweight Vasyl Lomachenko, welterweight Taras Shelestyuk, middleweight Ievgen Khytrov and heavyweight Oleksandr Usyk won the country's gold medals and Denys Berinchyk won silver in the light-welterweight division.

Usyk won the heavyweight championship when he defeated beating Azerbaijan teenager Teymur Mammadov 25-15.

The super-heavyweight title went to Azerbaijan's Magomedrasul Medjidov who beat England's Anthony Joshua 22-21.

Beijing Olympic Games light-flyweight champion Zou Shiming of China added a third world title to his collection, winning 20-11 against Asian champion Jong Hoon Shin of South Korea.

The 30-year-old Shiming won 4-3, 9-3 and 7-5.

European flyweight champion Misha Aloyan of Russia won gold in a tough bout against Welshman Andrew Selby, winning 13-12.

Cuban bantamweight Lazaro Alvarez Estrada outscored England's Luke Campbell 14-10 win.

Ukraine's Beijing Olympics winner and world champion Lomachenko overcame Pan-American champion Yasniel Toledo Lopez of Cuba 17-12 in the lightweight category.

Lomachenko knocked his rival down with a right hook in the first round for a 6-3 lead and never looked back.

In the light-welterweight Everton Lopes, the first Brazilian to reach a final, beat Ukraine's Berinchyk 26-23 for an historic victory.

Kazakhstan's two-time world champion Serik Sapiyev missed out on a third world title, losing 10-16 to Ukraine's Shelestyuk in the welterweight class.

Khytrov won 24-22 against Japanese middleweight Ryota Murata, who had stunned world champion Abbos Atoev in the opening bout.

Khytrov was trailing 7-6 after the first round but stepped up a gear to clinch the title.
