(ANSA) – ROME, APRIL 28 – While Madison Square Garden opens to women’s boxing in New York, the same happens in Rome, where Saturday is scheduled at PalaSantoro, ‘license plate’ Opi 82 and Phoenix Gym with the patronage of the FPI, the challenge for the Supermosca European Championship between the Roman Stephanie Silva and the Turin Giuseppina Di Stefano. It is a match that promises to be spectacular and will also be the first all-female boxing event organized in Italy. In fact, even the subclou will only propose ‘pink’ challenges.
For the two contenders for the European Championship it is a highly anticipated match, expected at the distance of ten rounds of two minutes each.
Stephanie Silva, 26, made her professional boxing debut in 2021 after practicing soccer and kick boxing. As an amateur boxer, trained by her mother Gloria Anticoli, she was Italian champion in 2015 (46-48 kg), vice-champion in 2014, 2016 and 2017, she won bronze at the 2013 EU Championships and 2016 European Championships.
Giuseppina Di Stefano, 37, professional since 2019, began boxing when she was already 29 and as an amateur she was bronze at the Italian championships. “I know my rival well – she says – and I know I am not favored by the predictions, but I’m sure I have prepared myself in the best way for this European derby in a tricolor key. For women’s boxing in Italy it will be an evening to remember”. (HANDLE).
