Demie-Jade Resztan secures bronze medal at 2019 Women's World Boxing Championships
Demie-Jade Resztan has earned a bronze medal at the 2019 Women’s World Boxing Championships in Russia.
The 23-year-old Cambridge-based boxer, who fights for and trains at New Astley BC in Newmarket, was competing in the light-flyweight 48kg class.
She defeated Italy’s Roberta Bonatti with a 3-2 split decision verdict to ensure a medal.
It was confirmed as the bronze after a 4-1 split decision loss to home favourite Ekaterina Paltceva in the semi-finals, and is Resztan’s second major medal of the year after a silver at the European Championships in August.
With team-mates Kariss Artingstall (featherweight, bronze) and Lauren Price (middleweight, gold) also in the medals, Resztan was part of GB women’s best performance at the world championships
