From the beginning, the clear advantage of physical condition on the part of the Polish woman was noticed. Fighting from the reverse position, Koszewska tried to keep the duel at bay, ending the actions with the left cross. The representative of Uzbekistan, who was also fighting from the position of the left, shortened the distance, looking for the opportunity to inflict the Polish woman on wide strokes.
Karolina Koszewska deftly leaned against Uzbeczka’s blows, countering with precision. This was also noticed by the judges who unanimously awarded the round to Poland. At the beginning of the second edition, a medical consultation was necessary, because the nose of the Uzbek representative was bleeding a lot.
The 39-year-old Pole carried out the tactical plan well, which Karolina Michalczuk outlined in the corner, effectively breaking her rival with straight lines. Koszewska did not engage in exchanges, he boxed from a distance, gaining more and more advantages. Again, the referees unanimously awarded the round to Poland.
