Hello talking fight fans once again.
Thank you very much for joining us on our special devoted to the olympics and tournaments and qualifying tournaments leading up to the olympics to be held in tokyo in july of this year.
Joining me is christian from the friday night panel and i’d like to ask: what have you discovered today, uh? Well, we’re still moving along with boxing, as you know, happening in spain right now and yesterday was day two, and it was the second day of the boxing tournament uh, where only women boxers uh were taken to the ring in the quarterfinal bouts uh yesterday, uh.
So as well as uh two of the uh, we were just talking about the indian team, two of the men’s all to the men, also advanced the quarters uh on an unrelated matter, but the indian team has had a really strong, showing moving forward here.
Um jasmine from india was impressive on the day as she uh beat the 2020 boxing champion andrea medina of the usa by unanimous decision in the 57 kilogram match, uh simranjit power of the 60 kilogram weight category, one two by unanimous verdict against the local hopeful victoria Albans lone part, as did puja rani against asunta’s asura against assunta canfora of italy in the 75 kilogram uh weight category in the other 57 kilogram weight uh about manesh moon lost to the reigning european champion, irma tesla of testa of italy by unanimous decision moving up Into the 69 kilogram category, uh lovelina borgan, sorry borgoin was outclassed by the two-time world champion and silver medalist uh sadat, delgado delgadova of russia uh.
The indian haven’t lost that one five uh five, oh uh, one of the boxers that everyone is watching in this tournament.
Of course, though, is the indian boxing legend mary comb uh, who made a winning debut to the ring at the boxing international tournament uh in valencia.
Just uh well yesterday, now on wednesday after she defeated uh, jordina sorrentino of italy in her quarterfinal match, so she was given a buy in the first opening round.
In the 51 kilogram category, the indian boxer won a close contest by a 3-2 split decision.
Uh, their results assured the six-time champion medal bronze minimally.
It was uh maricom’s, first fight in a year uh, the london 2012 bronze medalist was last in action at the asia olympic uh boxing qualifiers in oman jordan last year, where she uh that’s where she earned her ticket for tokyo in march, and it’s also perhaps why Mary was looking a little rusty, often unable to swerve out of the way of the aggressive italians punches the indian resort to a series of combinations to get back in the game in the second half of the round and attacked him sorry and attacked late in the Third, with hooks and body shots against sorrentino uh marikom, who actually just turned 38 on monday, is going to be facing off against the 2019 world champion bronze, medalist and bronze medalist virginia folkes of the united states.
Next and that’s going to be a big match to watch out for uh, but weirdly.
This actually isn’t even the only thing on mary combs calendar this week, as she was also named as one of the committee heads for the aiba so mariocom as well as uh coach, billy walsh, are among the chairs and vice chairs that were appointed to lead uh.
The new seven seven new international boxing association, uh committees, uh, the appointments – have been described, as quote one more important step in our reform program by us by the aiba president umar kremlev.
Now, with the aiba, as we know currently suspended by the international olympic committee, which is instead overseeing the boxing contest at this year’s olympics itself, uh the this panda sorry, the seven panels have been established to uh quote ensure good governance.
Kremlev claimed uh with referring to uh.
You know with refereeing, judging uh being among the ioc’s concerns and with many casting doubt on the actual results of the 2016 olympics in rio.
Uh boxing appointments anything to the refereeing or judging committee are gon na, be watched pretty closely and they’re gon na be pretty important as well.
Comb herself a six time world champion and london, 2012 bronze medalist, as i’ve already mentioned here and who will be also, as we’ve mentioned, competing at tokyo as well has been tapped to head the champions and veterans committee for the aiba.
So a big week, mary combs, having graham big week, those are the main headlines and the main takeaways today from the from the buxom tournament, i’m getting my tournaments, muddled man, there’s too many of them are there another one was announced uh last week, actually by the Aiba, oh we’ll get into that later, we’ll get into that later, more of them coming up fair enough enough.
Does that wrap us for today? Well, i said those are the those are the big headlines.
Those are the headlines for today, crap! That’S, that’s! That’S what we’ve got on the day big week for mary calm, uh women’s quarterfinals, taking place yesterday men’s quarterfinals, taking place today, uh starting tomorrow, olympic channel will be streaming the semis and the finals live, so they haven’t been doing.
They haven’t been doing anything up to this point.
You’Ve had to go through facebook and the iba’s web facebook page to find streams, uh, which are great if you speak italian.
I might add, because many are spanish, as most of them are uh la liga and the local spanish uh broadcasts, as well, so we’ll be seeing we’ll be seeing some english language broadcasting through the olympic channel for uh minimally, the semis and the finals starting tomorrow.
