Christina Hammer Still WBF World Champion

World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Middleweight Champion Christina Hammer successfully defended her title for the seventh time on Saturday night (March 1), when she defeated former world champion Jessica Balogun at the GETEC Arena in Magdeburg, Germany.

Going out to millions of viewers live on SAT1 television in Germany and by web-stream to boxing fans world wide, Hammer again made a clear statement that she is the best in her weight-class, and one of the very best pound-for-pound female boxers on the planet.

While the challenger was game from the outset, and tried her best to unsettle the taller champion, Hammer was just too smart and skilled, using her longer reach magnificently, and after ten rounds of boxing there was no doubt about who would get her hands raised.

All three judges had Hammer winning every round, and the fight 100-90.

Still only 23 years old, and a world champion in two weight classes after also winning and relinquishing the WBF World Super Middleweight crown last year, Hammer improved her undefeated professional ledger to 17-0 (8), while Balogun (25) falls to 23-3 (11).

Promoter of the fight was SES Boxing.
