Day 2 update from the Feliks Stamm Memorial in Warsaw, Poland.
This afternoon I was in the first bout against Lydia Boussaida of France. This was the second time I fought Lydia this year. She is a very tough opponent and the last fight we had was very close but today I was able to keep the momentum going from my win yesterday and came out with a 13-8 Win. Again today I felt very good in the ring and was able to control the fight from the opening bell, I knew when I had to pick it up and used my speed to out-point my opponent.
In the other 51kg quarter-final bout, on my side of the bracket Lisa Whiteside of England faced Clenia Costa of Brazil. This was a very close match going back and forth between both boxers. Lisa Whiteside came out with with the win in the end.
Therefore, my opponent for the semi-finals will be Lisa Whiteside of England. The bout will take place tomorrow April 25th at 11am (5am Kitchener)
