Linkova used nice technique but Radovanovic landed the stronger punches which guaranteed her success in Sombor.

The surprise of the event

The Slovakian met with Russia’s Elizaveta Tokareva who returned to a Serbian international event after half year of break. The Russian lightweight (60kg) boxer did not find the best rhythm against the Slovakian girl and suffered an unexpected loss in Sombor. Kubalova advanced to the semi-finals and will be meeting with Serbia’s Djina Miletic in the last four of this youth weight class.

The Round-up

Norway’s Jenny Simonsen returned to the international events in September 2021 after one and half year of break and she claimed silver medal at the Silesian Open Women’s Tournament in Gliwice. The 18-year-old Norwegian moved down to the minimumweight (48kg) but she could keep her strength and speed following this change. Simonsen opened the first round better than Poland’s Oliwia Jakubczyk and took the lead on the scorecards after three minutes. Simonsen continued this performance in the same level until the end of the bout which means she can box for the gold medal with Russia’s Karina Feyzulina.
