The bout of the day

Netherlands’ Alicia Holzken robbed into the best boxers more than ten years ago when she bagged bronze medal at the 2011 AIBA Women’s Junior World Boxing Championships at the age of 15. The Dutch girl switched to other martial arts in the recent years but returned to our sport in the recent months and she has got strong targets for the upcoming years. Holzken eliminated already her first rival and met with Wales’ new sensation, Zoe Andrews in the semi-finals of the elite bantamweight (54kg). Holzken is not the tallest boxer of this weight class but she lands punches from all possible angles which paid off against the technician Welsh girl in the bout of the day. Holzken will now meet for the title with Russia’s AIBA Women’s Youth World Boxing Championships bronze medallist Anastasia Kirienko.

The surprise of the day

Greece arrived to the Nations Women’s Cup with a huge delegation, their number of the participating boxers is record in the event’s history. Their junior No.1, Anna Maria Tryfilli has got strong results from the previous international competitions but she had a tough rival on Day3, Russia’s Kristina Nevmiyanova. The Greek pinweight (46kg) boxer controlled almost all of the exchanges and her dynamism delivered for her a superb success in Sombor. Tryfilli proved her impressive skills and could be one of the favourites also at the 2022 EUBC Junior European Boxing Championships.

The Round-up

Hungary’s Patricia Petriman is a 13-year-old schoolgirl boxer who has got strong family connections to boxing as all of her brothers are involved to the sport. Petriman met with Russia’s Ulan-Ude-based Bayraa Ayusheva but she managed to win all of the three rounds against a top opponent during the first schoolgirl bout of the Nations Women’s Cup. Petriman’s teammate, Sara Varga has just joined to the junior age group but she controlled her contest over Greece’s Vlasia Mavragani and delivered Hungary’s second success during the third session.

Serbia’s best future hope among the girls is Sara Cirkovic who earned silver medal at the 2020 EUBC Junior European Boxing Championships and repeated that result at the 2021 EUBC Youth European Boxing Championships. The 17-year-old talent eliminated Greece’s Eleni Cholidi landing plenty of punches in their youth flyweight (52kg) contest. Russia’s EUBC European Junior Champion Daria Kostkina had a tough job against Hungary’s debutant Karmen Horvath but she managed to win that contest in the same weight class.

Kazakhstan sent a small delegation to the Nations Women’s Cup following their unexpected but hard situation which affected the country in January. Their ASBC Asian Junior Champion Ulzhan Sarsenbek controlled all of the three rounds against Hungary’s Fanni Laura Kovacs advancing to the final of the youth featherweight (57kg). Her teammate, ASBC Asian Elite Champion Rimma Volosenko was too strong for Russia’s Daria Dmitriyeva and stopped her opponent in the first round.
