6th European Championships in
Vejle, Denmark

(OCT 21) Saturday saw the finals of the 6th Women Amateur Championships. 137 boxers from 27 countries competed in 13 weight divisions, from 46 kgs (102 lbs) to 86 kgs (190 lbs). A total of 124 bouts were fought to find the 13 new European Champions.

Three countries - Russia, Turkey and Ukraine - had registered competitors in all 13 weight divisions, while Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Switzerland and Wales pinned their hope for glory and a medal at the championships on a single boxer.  Russia turned out to be the most dominant country by far. No less than 10 of their 13 boxers returned to Russia with a medal to show for their efforts. 6 of gold, 1 of silver and 3 of bronze. No other country won more than 1 gold medal.

The 2007 European Championships proved, that the quality of women's amateur boxing is increasing, and that the competition is getting tougher year by year. It was clearly evident, that the method of scoring the bouts has undergone a radical change since last years championships. Only clean and telling punches were counted. To illustrate the point. At the 13 final bouts in 2006, a total of 320 points were awarded with 3 finals stopped by the outscore rule, while at this years 13 finals, only 148 points were given, with 1 bout stopped by the outscore rule and two ending in knockouts. The total number of bouts stopped by RSCO (Outscore by 15 points within the two first rounds) at the 2006 championships were 40 against 8 this year. The stricter scoring caused some frustration by some coaches, and there were even some corners throwing in the towel as a protest, to what they regarded as unfair scoring. All in all, the new principle of scoring made the bouts more entertaining to watch, in my humble opinion.
