European Championship Rotterdam 2011
by Lucia Rijker
October 23, 2011

     
   
   
   
   

(OCT 23)  I came early to secure myself a nice spot with a perfect view on the ring. In no time the place was sold out because the Beb van Claveren memorial took place right before the opening of the finals, this allowed a hundred of old-time boxing fans to fill the arena.

Full of excitement,  I was waiting for one of my favorite fights of the evening and for a dream coming true to see: Women’s Boxing on a high quality and competitive level performed by all ages and races and backgrounds.

I felt like a mother watching her children.

My expectations of Katie Taylor Ireland vs. Sofia Ochigava Russia, was very high, since I considered them both pound for pound the best fighters of the tournament, however, Sofia was a bit disappointing in this final bout.

Katie totally controlled the fights with her faints and her bouncing powerful focused movements, so Sofia wasn’t able to get any momentum, for her powerful counterpunches.

Like a deer in the headlights Sofia was 'checkmated"  by Katie’s mastery!

Pound for pound fighter of Europe (maybe even the world) Katie Taylor.
