The Boxam Women’s Tournament was held in Castellon de la Plana in the recent days where Germany’s AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships bronze medallist Nadine Apetz won the title of the welterweight (69kg). She defeated Australia’s AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships silver medallist Kaye Scott, Spain’s Lucia Blazquez and France’s promising Emilie Sonvico in Castellon de la Plana. We asked Germany’s Nadine Apetz about her impression, opinion and also to share with us her upcoming plans.
“The organization, the accommodation and the venue were all great in the Boxam Women’s Tournament. I really enjoyed the stay and overall experience of the tournament. The level was quite good as some of the world’s best nations were there in Spain with their top squad therefore it was a great preparation for me to the upcoming AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships.
Concerning my bouts in the Boxam Women’s Tournament all of them were not so easy for me this time. My grandfather died just last Wednesday so the day before we left for Spain. I had to hold back a lot of emotions in order to function which all burst out after my final bout in Castellon de la Plana. Mentally it was really challenging for me. Despite of all of these trouble and emotions I was able to get the gold medal in the Boxam Women’s Tournament which gives me confidence.
We are heading to the United States this week to do two test matches there and in the end of October we will be joining to a multination training camp before the start of the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships.
I really with to reach the final in New Delhi and I think I have the potential to become World Champion in November. England’s Sandy Ryan delivered a strong performance in Spain so she could be one of my main rivals in the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships,” said Nadine Apetz following her gold medal in the Boxam Women’s Tournament.
