England’s talents dominated their fights in the third day of the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships23 August 2018
The third competition day of the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships in Budapest was a superb success for the European boxers. England’s fantastic talents dominated their contests on Day3 and all of them showed the potential to get AIBA Youth World Championships titles.
England’s defending EUBC European Youth Champion Ivan Hope Price is the main gold medal contender of the men’s flyweight (52kg) in Budapest but he had a hard job against Romania’s Marian Gabriel Schiopu in Budapest. The 18-year-old English talent worked from longer distance against the smaller and attacking Romanian boxer. Price used up his height advantage well enough and marched into the last eight in the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships.
Following Price’s great triumph another England vs. Romania contest was held in the third competition day of the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships. Tudsbury, who claimed bronze medal in the EUBC European Confederation Youth Boxing Championships in Roseto degli Abruzzi, was also taller than his Romanian opponent. The 18-year-old English middleweight (75kg) talent used his stronger punches and shocked Simion in the second round. The referee counted Simion and the Romanian ringside abandoned their unequal contest after the second break.
Croatia’s EUBC European Confederation Junior Boxing Championships silver medallist Gabrijel Veocic defeated Hungary’s David Koczian a few weeks before the start of the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships. The 17-year-old Croatian middleweight (75kg) boxer was too quick for the Hungarian on their re-match and controlled the contest. Koczian gave in everything but Veocic used the best tactic to eliminate his rival in Budapest.
Russia’s Liubov Sharapova defeated Hungary’s Hanna Lakotar in the Golden Girl Women’s Box Cup in Sweden half year ago. Both boxers achieved already medals also in the EUBC events and they are among the medal contenders of the women’s flyweight (51kg). The younger Hungarian planned to do revenge and followed her well-built tactic in the first round successfully. The Russian boxer moved more on feet in the second round and landed tough jabs which meant she was able to beat her Hungarian rival once again this time in Budapest.
Russia’s another favourite woman boxer Nune Asatrian claimed silver medal in the EUBC European Confederation Youth Boxing Championships in Roseto degli Abruzzi and continued her strong performance in Budapest as well. The 17-year-old Russian lightweight (60kg) talent was too quick and smart for Chile’s lone woman boxer and won the contest by unanimous decision.
Hungary’s EUBC European Confederation Women’s Youth Boxing Championships bronze medallist Luca Hamori had only three losses during her whole career therefore she started the bout with high confidence. The 17-year-old Hungarian lightweight (60kg) boxer caught her US opponent Nicole Ocasio with tough jabs in the second round and led on the scorecards after six minutes of fight. Hamori felt the best fighting distance in the third and bowed out of the way her US rival in Budapest.
England’s EUBC European Women’s Youth Champion and two-time EUBC European Women’s Junior Champion Caroline Dubois started the first round in different rhythm than Australia’s Emma Lawson and dominated the opening minutes. The 17-year-old English star, who is the top gold medal contender of the women’s lightweight (60kg), saved some power for the later actions in the final round.
Finland’s EUBC European Confederation Women’s Junior Boxing Championships silver medallist Vilma Viitanen had an unlucky draw in Roseto degli Abruzzi therefore she arrived to Budapest with high motivation and after a perfect preparation. The 17-year-old Finnish boxer finished Czech Republic’s Natalie Polednikova’s road in the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships with her powerful combinations. The referee confirmed Viitanen’s RSC success in the third round which was Finland’s first success in Budapest.
