WBF Tripleheader in Germany with Doberstein vs Martinez headlining

On Friday March 8 at the Saarlandhalle in Saarbruecken, Germany, DOG Eventboxing presents a World Boxing Federation Championship-tripleheader featuring two Intercontinental title fights and one International championship bout.

The main event sees local hero Juergen Doberstein facing Spaniard Blas Miguel Martinez for the vacant Intercontinental Super Middleweight crown.

Doberstein, 24 years old and from nearby St. Ingbert, is the reigning German champion and spots a professional record of 13-1-1 (4). He won the vacant national title in May 2012 against former titlist Christian Pawlak, and followed up on that win by stopping Polish prospect Michal Nieroda in his next bout.

In Blas Miguel Martinez (31), Doberstein will be in with his most experienced foe so far, a man who has compiled a 18-6 (9) ledger against good opposition and fought for a variety of titles since turning pro in 2007. Martinez is coming off two stoppage victories in his adoptive home country Switzerland.

In the co-feature, Women’s Intercontinental Flyweight Champion Rajah Amasheh defends against late substitute Agnes Draxler from Hungary who steps in to replace former European champion Corina Carlescu.

After winning the WBF title last October with a landslide unanimous decision over Serbian Fleis Djendji, Amasheh, 14-0-1 (3), will be looking for an impressive performance in her first defense against Draxler, 4-3 (0).

A victory for Amasheh will move her one step closer a shot at WBF World Champion Irma Sanchez from Mexico, so a lot will be at stake for the 30-year-old German.

Finally, in an all-Hungarian clash of southpaws, veteran Ferenc Hafner (37), 17-2 (10), square off with hard-punching young gun Sandor Micsko (26), 14-3-2 (11), for the vacant International middleweight title. It shapes up to be an interesting evening of championship boxing in Saarbruecken!
