In April 2018, in a phone call with the Tunisian TV channel "Elhiwar ettounssi", Azza announced the end of her career. The reason was because the Tunisian minister of sports "Majdouline Cherni" (who was busy with the local elections) refused to take Azza's calls in order to force Azza to accept the contract offered my the government despite Azza multiple warnings of multiple legal breaches in the contract. Azza described The Tunisian minister "Majdouline Cherni" as the worst sports minister she has ever dealt with during her tenure.


Besbes again qualified to the individual event of the 2016 Summer Olympics, and reached the quarterfinal. She was ultimately ranked 5th.


Besbes was born in a sports family: her father Ali is a former basketball player, who became a physical education teacher; her mother Hayet Ben Ghazi is a former foil fencer, who became an international referee. Her parents settled in Abu Dhabi before she was born. They had all their children–daughters Azza, Sarra, Héla and Rym, son Ahmed Aziz–take up fencing. Sarra competed in the women's épée at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, while Héla is also a sabreur, member of the Tunisian national team.

At the age of 18 she became the first female African athlete to fence in an Olympic quarter-final. She took a 9–6 lead against US fencer and World No.1 Rebecca Ward, but Ward levelled, before taking the advantage on 14–12. Besbes rallied to 14-all at the end of fencing time. The last hit required a lengthy video review and was finally given to Ward, who won the bout. Besbes incriminated a lack of support from the Tunisian Fencing Federation, which did not allow her to prepare correctly for an event of this magnitude.


Besbes qualified to the 2012 Summer Olympics as the top-ranked African fencer, this time with another Tunisian, Amira Ben Chaabane . Besbes defeated Hong Kong's Au Sin Ying in the first round, before losing out her next match to American fencer Dagmara Wozniak, with a score of 13–15.


Besbes qualified to the individual event of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing as the top-ranked fencer of the African zone. She defeated South Africa's Jyoti Chetty, then France's Léonore Perrus, before meeting Canada's Olga Ovtchinnikova in the table of 16. The bout was marred by technical glitches: after Ovtchinnikova took a 9–5 lead, she struck a hit which did not register on the electrical apparatus and was finally denied. The incident occurred twice. After the problem was resolved, Besbes struck ten hits in a row to win the bout.

In the 2008–09 season Besbes posted a top-8 finish at the Ghent World Cup and earned the gold medal at the African Championships in Dakar. The next year, she took a silver at the Africans in Tunis and reached the quarter-finals at the 2010 World Championships in Paris, before being stopped by Ukraine's Olena Khomrova. In the 2010–11 season she climbed her first World Cup with a bronze medal at the Bologna World Cup. She regained her African crown in Cairo and posted a last-16 finish at the World Championships in Catania. These results allowed her to close the season World No.8, a career best as of 2015.


She joined first the Cercle d'Escrime in Orleans, then US Metro in Paris, both clubs specialized in sabre, under a scholarship from the Tunisian Ministry of Youth and Sports. She was invited to share training sessions with the French national team. The same year Besbes posted a top-8 finish at the Junior World Fencing Championships in Belek and she took a silver medal at the 2007 All-Africa Games in Algiers.


Besbes took up fencing when she was six. She was first given a foil, but she found the weapon too quiet and switched to sabre under the coaching of Haythem Habbege and Hassen Zouari. When she was ten she joined the Tunis Air Club, where she trained until 2005, when the fencing section was closed for lack of funds. She went on training with the Tunisian national team for two years, then she moved to France.
