(ANSA) – BOLOGNA, FEB 1 – Italy’s freshly crowned national
welterweight champion Pamela Malvina Noutcho Sawa says she is
dreaming of entering the ring in Las Vegas where her idols
fought.
    Noutcho Sawa was born in Cameroon 28 years ago and after
qualifying as a nurse at Bologna University now works at the ER
in the Ospedale Maggiore in the Emilian capital.
    Noutcho Sawa told ANSA she had taken up boxing “by chance” in
2015, during training at a centre for homeless people in Bologna
which also had a gym.
    “They organised a boxing course, I enrolled and I’ve never
looked back”, she said.
    Noutcho Sawa has continued remote training despite the COVID
restrictions she is living with, also in her work as a nurse.
    “It takes the same things to be a nurse and to do boxing:
concentration, courage and being able to face, each time, a
different opponent, finding solutions to make the patient get
better or to win a match.
    “My dream? I’m always joking about it with my trainer: to get to
La Vegas and fight in the ring where the great champions have
faced off”. (ANSA).
