Raja Amasheh’s next fight scheduled for March 6th in Berlin, Germany

Raja Amasheh will defend her WBC Silver Flyweight Championship on March 6th in Berlin. The fight will be broadcasted live on Eurosport. After her last fight back in October Amasheh is highly interested in a rematch with Amira Hamzaoui from France.

Raja said: “I’m very happy to announce that my next fight will be in Berlin on a card promoted by EC Box-Promotion. We informed Amira and her team that we are enforcing our rematch option. The lawsuit she filed against the German boxing commission (Bund Deutscher Berufsboxer) has officially been declined. I hope that she will fulfill her contractual commitments and step up so we can settle the score in the ring.”
