Tegucigalpa 2017

All seven Canadian female boxers are going for gold at the  AMBC Continental Championships

 

Boxing Canada is making history at the 2017 AMBC Continental Championships as all seven Canadian female boxers are moving on to finals and will be fighting for gold, which is unprecedented. “I’m not surprised that every member of our female National team has made it to the finals. They are a very talented group of boxers led by Olympian Mandy Bujold and they went to Honduras on a mission to win gold.” said Pat Fiacco, Boxing Canada’s President. “This is a great start on the road to Tokyo 2020.”  Indeed, this is a fantastic way to kick off to the new Olympic quadrennial as AIBA has announced last week that two additional women’s division will appear at the 2020 Olympic games. The weight categories will be confirmed in July.

 

The AMBC Continental Championships are taking place from June 10th until the 19th in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and are regrouping all weight categories for men and women. Here are the face-offs that are expected for our Canadian female boxers during the finals on Friday June 16th:

 

48 Kg Kim Clavel (CAN) vs Irismar Del Valle Cardozo Rojas (VEN)
51 Kg Mandy Bujold (CAN) vs Virginia Fuchs (USA)
54 Kg Sara Haghighat-Joo (CAN) vs Leonela Sanchez (ARG)
57 Kg Sabrina Aubin (CAN) vs Marcela Arias (COL)
60 Kg Caroline Veyre (CAN) vs Beatriz Iasmin Ferreira (BRA)
75 Kg Tammara Thibeault (CAN) vs Oshea Jones (USA)
81 Kg Marija Curran (CAN) vs Jessica Paola Caicedo Sinisterra (COL)

 

Unfortunately, the fate of our male National boxers has been different during the competition as four men have lost their first fights and only Olympian Arthur Biyarslanov is still in the competition in the hope to obtain his berth for the AIBA 2017 Men’s World Championships.
