Hammer & Kuehne Defend WBF World Titles December 6

World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Champions Christina Hammer (15-0, 7 KOs) and Ramona Kuehne (20-1, 6 KOs) are set to defend their titles on Friday December 6 at the Brandenburg Halle in Frankfurt/Oder, Germany.

SES Boxing promotes, and the show will be televised live in Germany on Sport 1.

Hammer (23) won the WBF World middleweight title in February 2011, and will be making her sixth defense when she takes on 19-year-old Mexican Carmen Garcia (10-2, 5 KOs).

Last May the Dortmund-fighter moved up to Super Middleweight to dethrone reigning undefeated WBF World titlist Zita Zatyko (15-0-1) to become a two-weight world champion, but she is now fully focusing on dominating the middleweight division.

In Garcia she will be facing a young, hungry up-and-comer who is entering her first world championship fight. Nicknamed “La Demoledora” (the devastating), she turned pro in 2011 and suffered a couple of early losses, but is coming off six straight victories.

World Super Featherweight Champion Ramona Kuehne (33), one of the most accomplished female fighters in the sport today with multiple world titles in three weight classes on her resume, captured the WBF title in 2010 and now rematches Hungarian Renata Domsodi (11-3, 5 KOs) in what will be her fifth defense.

In her last title-defense Kuehne outclassed Brazilian Halana Dos Santos to win a landslide unanimous decision this past March. But that is her only fight since the first Domsodi bout in January 2012, as injuries has kept her out of regular action, and she should expect a tougher night in Frankfurt.

In their original encounter, Kuehne won by eighth round technical knockout when Domsodi was stopped due to a deep cut. The 34-year-old from Budapest will now get a second shot, and with two clear victories in her last two bouts she will travel to Germany full of confidence.

Also on the card will be former world heavyweight title-challenger Francesco Pianeta taking on undefeated Robert Teuber, and an interesting all-German Cruiserweight clash between undefeated Dennis Ronert and former top-contender Kai Kurzawa.
