Italy’s Rio 2016 Olympian Irma Testa – I have enough experiences to do well in New Delhi01 November 2018
The Italian woman’s boxing team is one of the strongest ones in Europe and their top talent Irma Testa is ready to deliver at least a medal from the upcoming AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships. Testa was Rio 2016 Olympian boxer in spite of the fact she will be turning to 21 only in the end of this year.
Italy will be sending nine boxers to the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships to New Delhi and the coaches of their delegation are expecting medals from the strong squad. Their lightweight (60kg) No.1 Irma Testa was AIBA Women’s Youth World Champion, AIBA Women’s Junior World Champion and she is planning to do something big in her second AIBA Women’s Elite World Boxing Championships.
“I started my preparations to the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships quickly after the EUBC European Confederation Women’s Boxing Championships. The current preparation for New Delhi is going well, we are trying to perfect my strengths and focusing on things that are the best for me.
In the last EUBC European Confederation Women’s Boxing Championships in Sofia I made mistakes and I learnt about those faults. Since then I attended in the Boxam Women’s Tournament in Spain where I claimed a bronze medal. Our team will leave to Russia today where we will finalize our trainings for the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships.
I feel trained and I am happy that the preparations went according to our schedule. I am expecting to make great AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships in India and I would like to win an important medal.
My worst rival is called Irma Testa, my results depends on my mood. If I am calm I am not afraid of anyone, only my minds can beat me. I spent the whole year in the Olympic Training Centre of Italian Boxing Federation in Assisi. We trained three-times a day, we had the focus also on the quality foods and relaxations after the sessions.
Now I have 100 bouts during my whole career and I think I have enough experiences to do well in India” said Italy’s Taipei 2015 AIBA Women’s Youth World Champion and Rio 2016 Olympian Irma Testa.
