She destroys an opponent not paying attention on her size

Irina Sinetskaya: I fight with men "to the death"!


Русская версия


Irina Sinetskaya – a heavyweight favorite in the Russian boxing team for Olympic success in London. Irina Sinetskaya is a real Tyson in a skirt. All her opponents are head and shoulders above her but fear her as death. Irina comes out into the ring and destroys an opponent not paying attention on her size.

- Men punch sharper, says Irina Sinetskaya, the most decorated amateur female boxer, who won three world and five European gold medals. My shadow boxing comes out much better than real bout – something interferes, maybe a helmet – without it fighting is more comfortable. - Unlike guys, girls always fight until the last gun is fired, - confidently states the senior trainer of the Russian national boxing team Victor Lisitsyn. – They don't give up even in hopeless situations. He said that women's boxing will never run as three-minute rounds.

- Unlike guys, girls always fight until the last gun is fired, - confidently states the senior trainer of the Russian national boxing team Victor Lisitsyn. – They don't give up even in hopeless situations. He said that women's boxing will never run as three-minute rounds.

- I don't like tall ones, - jokes Irina Sinetskaya after winning the semi-final over Anita Ducza of Hungary.

- Do you have a master stroke or tactics?

- I always dictate close combat on an opponent. I like crosses and hooks to head but upward punches to chin are not my favorite.

- An upward punch to chin mean uppercut?

- Uh, I don't know too much about the terms hook or uppercut, Irina smiles.

- You take very few punches…

- Yeah, you're right, it looks like I have the third eye and see every thing around.

- Kathy Taylor sometimes trains with men. Have you tried?

- I always spar with guys – all my troubles come from them, - smiles Irene demonstrating scares on her eyelid. – Doctors fixed them very well, almost invisible. In fact, sparring with men is very helpful for me. I fight with them to the death!
