An Olympics boxing fighter from Lithuania, Eimantas Stanionis grew up as a fighter. When his father left him, he had always been fighting in the streets. His mother finally took him to a local gym where he learned mixed martial arts. He was 13 years old when he laced on a pair of boxing gloves. That experience motivated him to come back to the gym.
As an amateur fighter, Stanionis has an impressive record. He has competed in 14 fights. Out of 14, he has 13 wins and one loss. Most of his wins were by technical knockouts (TKO). Stanionis has two (2) wins under a youth national title, four (4) senior national crowns, and the 2015 European Champions. In the 2016 Olympics, he lost to Shakhram Giyasov in the second round.
Despite losing in the Olympics, this became his open door to professional boxing. In 2017, Stanionis had a total of four wins, three of which were knockouts. In 2018, he won three times, defeating Hector Munoz and Erick Daniel Martinez by TKOs, and Levan Ghvamichava, an eight-round unanimous decision by the judges.
The following year, Eimantas Stanionis proved to be unstoppable by delivering another three wins. The two fights were by stoppage, defeating Samuel Figueroa and Evincii Dixon, and another knockout against Julio Cesar Sanchez. Before his fight with Samuel Figueroa, he suffered torn ligaments and a broken right wrist. But he continued the fight, notwithstanding the pain of his injury.
After recovering from his injury, Stanionis returned to boxing and faced one of the toughest opponents of his career. He fought against Justin DeLoach, another skilled boxer-puncher, and managed to deliver a ninth-round TKO victory.
