As we promised the women’s division are ready! And one must say that this time we got some real great videos. Some of them “old news”, some real classics, and some that could be a first time watch for some of you. But we have tried do mix it up a little bit, so we do have some from across the World. ladies..you`r up next!
We start of at the Dutch Open in 2011. Margarita Čiuplytė (Lithuania) was at the time among the absolute top fighters of the world. EC champion several times, an later that year runner up in the World Championship in Japan! On the other side, Sara Hägge (Sweden) At that time did Hägge her international debut. The result of the fight made no surprise, but the spirit of the challenger did..
Next fight up, European Championship in Spain, the year 2010. A real intense fight between two rivals in the middleweight at that time. Inga Mikštaitė (Lithuania) vs Csenge Szepesi (Hungary) Both very aggressive, Mikštaitė maybe with an little technical advantage, but Szepesi with an extreme drive. Since former champions in the middleweight, Edit Abraham had moved up to heavyweight, the middleweight top spot was open..!
