Two new World Boxing Federation (WBF) Champions were crowned on Saturday night, March 22, at the Sportpalast in Bielefeld, Germany, as Hungarian promotional outfit Profibox-Promotion went abroad to present a stacked card of action-packed bouts.
Zoltan Sera captured the vacant International Super Welterweight title with a technical decision after five good rounds over fellow Hungarian Sandor Micsko. An accidental headbutt in round two cut Sera, and the injury developed to a degree that the bout had to be stopped three rounds later.
It was a split decision, as scoring referee Janos Baranyi and judge Tamas Sasvari had Sera ahead by 48-47, while judge Alexander Plumanns had Southpaw Micsko in the lead by the same score. A rematch would be very recommendable, as the boxer vs. puncher match-up was shaping up to get even better down the stretch.
Zoltan Sera improved his professional record to 14-1 (9), and Sandor Micsko, a former WBF International Champion at Middleweight, falls to 22-5-2 (16).
In another all-Hungarian battle, former two-time world title-challenger Renata Domsodi won the vacant Womens International Bantamweight title when she scored a unanimous decision over previously undefeated Alexandra Vlajk.
Domsodi set the pace from the start and quickly took control against her less experienced opponent. With nice counter-punching and hard body-shots, Domsodi was clearly the more skilled boxer, but Vlajk proved game throughout and tried in spurts to turn the tide with wild hooks.
After eight rounds of action Alexander Plumanns scored the bout 77-75, and Janos Baranyi and Tamas Sasvari both scored it 79-73, all for Domsodi.
The new champion is now 12-4 (5) in the professional ranks, while Vlajk drops to 5-1 (1).
