July 28, 2021 Irma Testa wins 5 to 0 in the quarter-finals of Olympic boxing, category 54-57 kg, and wins a safe medal, a historic fact: it is in fact the first for Italian women's boxing.

The twenty-three year old from Torre Annunziata will face a Filipino opponent in the semifinal on July 31st, but in this sport there is no final for third place so at least she will get an equal bronze.



"I guaranteed the medal and it is a great satisfaction: I fought very well in the first two rounds, a little less in the third, perhaps due to a bit of fatigue. The goal remains to do well and have fun, but now mela The Filipino Petecio will be a tough rival in the semifinals, but who wouldn't be at this level? Meanwhile, this result is dedicated to my teacher and to the whole Italian women's boxing movement. " So Irma Testa after the victory against Canadian Veyre in the quarter-finals of the Tokyo 2020 featherweight tournament.
