October 22, 2014. Fireworks guaranteed! Two Female World Champions will collide when WBA World Flyweight Champion Susi Kentikian squares off with WBA World Super Flyweight Champion Naoko Fujioka on the Sturm vs. Stieglitz undercard on November 8, 2014 at the Porsche-Arena in Stuttgart, Germany.
“This will be one heck of a fight. She’s one of the world’s finest fighters”, Kentikian (27), who is currently preparing with her coach Magomed Schaburow in Cologne, Germany, said. “It’ll be a great challenge but those are the fights I want. I want to give the fans a great show and dominate a strong opponent. I can’t wait for fight night!”
The unbeaten Fujioka (39), from Japan, is regarded as one of the best female boxers. She currently holds the WBA World Super Flyweight title and is a former WBC World Minimumweight champion. She is looking to win her third championship when she moves down in weight to challenge Kentikian in Stuttgart.
Kentikian, of course, wants to erase the zero from Fujioka’s professional record. In her last fight, the “Killer Queen” defended her crown via a spectacular ninth round technical knockout on May 31 against Dan-Bi Kim, also from Japan. “I’ll be even better this time around”, Kentikian promised. “I’m in tremendous shape and I promise that Fujioka won’t stand a chance on November 8.”
