Ramona Kuehne Makes Sixth WBF World Title Defense
On Friday March 28, World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Super Featherweight Champion Ramona Kuehne will be making her sixth title-defense at the MBS Arena in Potsdam, Germany, on a show promoted by SES Boxing.
Kuehne, 21-1 (7), will face undefeated 24-year-old Hungarian Gina Chamie, who enters her third title bout, but first world championship opportunity, with a fine 8-0 (4) ledger.
“Ramona Kuehne is an experienced champion, but I will be coming to take the title back to Hungary”, said Chamie when the pair recently met at a press conference in Potsdam, near the champion’s hometown Berlin.
“I have to be careful of her hard body-shots, but I can’t, and won’t, hide in the ring, and I will be fighting hard to make it a great fight.”
Having heard it all during a career that started in 2006 and have brought her world titles in three weight classes, Kuehne is not particularly impressed with her opponent’s statements:
“This is a classic fight between experience and youth. But with my experience of many title fights, and the fact that we will be fighting in front of my fans, gives me great confidence and motivation.”
“Of course she wants to win my title, but a lot of opponents have tried and failed in the past.”
The SES Boxing show, including the Ramona Kuehne vs. Gina Chamie WBF World title fight, will be streamed live and for free world-wide on www.ran.de and www.myvideo.de from 19:00 CET.
