Ramona Kühne, Christina Hammer Retain WBF World Titles
In front of a good crowd at the Brandenburg Halle in Frankfurt/Oder, live on free web stream worldwide, and televised by SAT 1 in Germany, World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Champions Ramona Kuehne and Christina Hammer successfully defended their crowns on Friday night, December 6.
Super Featherweight World Champion Kuehne put on a convincing performance as she beat old foe Renata Domsodi from Hungary.
Their original encounter, in January 2012, ended inconclusively when Domsodi suffered a bad cut, resulting in Kuehne winning by TKO in round eight. This time there would be no questions afterwards as to who is better of the two.
After an even first round, Kuehne started to take over in round two and from round four it was one-way traffic as a sharp and determined champion punished the game but out-gunned Hungarian.
In round six referee Paul Thomas had seen enough and waved the fight off when Domsodi continued to take punches without firing anything back. The time was 1:50.
This being the fifth successful defense of the WBF title she won in June 2010, Kuehne improved her professional record to 21-1 (7). Domsodi drops to 11-4 (5).
In the co-feature, Christina Hammer showed once again that she is undoubtedly the best female Middleweight in the world, outclassing Mexico’s Carmen Garcia to retain her WBF world title for the sixth time.
Hammer took control from the start and it was quickly clear that the challenger was in over her head, as the champion landed almost at will.
Midway through the first round, Hammer forced Garcia to the ropes and unleashed a quick flurry of punches, many of which connected, and after 1:42 of the round referee Ingo Barrabas jumped in to save Gacia.
Only 23-years-old, Hammer now holds an undefeated ledger of 16-0 (8), while Garcia (19) travels back to Mexico at 10-3 (5).
With few challenges left at Middleweight at the moment, Hammer could, for the right fight, be headed back up to Super Middleweight, where she won and relinquished the WBF World title earlier this year.
The Kuehne vs. Domsodi, Hammer vs. Garcia WBF World Championship doubleheader was promoted by SES Boxing.
