Sweden’s top woman boxer Agnes Alexiusson – I want to be the best I can and go as far as I can in New Delhi04 November 2018
Sweden’s 22-year-old Agnes Alexiusson had to miss the last edition of the EUBC European Confederation Women’s Boxing Championships in Sofia but she recovered from all of her injuries and she is among the medal contenders of the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships.
The AIBA Women’s Youth World Champion and EUBC European Women’s Youth Champion talent prepared in Sweden, in Germany and also in Nigeria to prepare well to the upcoming event. The AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships will be taking place in New Delhi.
“I started my preparations to the upcoming AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships this summer and my plan was to get as many fights as possible but unfortunately I got a bad cold just before the Tammer Tournament.
We spent several days on a training camp in Germany with Great Britain, Ireland, United States and the local squad. I was in Nigeria in a training camp and a competition earlier this autumn which was a tough and interesting experience for me. I met with one of the best Nigerian woman boxer Oluwatoyin Oladeji in that meeting.
I want to be the best I can and go as far as I can in the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships in New Delhi. I will be focusing only one fight at a time in India. It feels good that I am in great shape therefore I am super excited before the start.
There are many good boxers at the lightweight (60kg) so I think it is a quite open class and will be a tough competition. Now I have already 121 bouts and I am ready to reach a top result also in the elite level after my youth successes.
Work and training take up most of my time but I love to relax with a good series or spending time with movies, friends and family of course,” said Sweden’s Agnes Alexiusson who is expecting a good result in New Delhi.
