Undefeated World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens International Featherweight Champion Melanie Zwecker, will attempt to add the WBF Intercontinental title to her resume when she squares off with Dominican Diana Garcia on Saturday April 25 at the Pfinzhalle in Dettenheim, Germany.
Zwecker, currently 6-0 (3) since turning pro in December 2012, won the WBF International crown in May 2014 with a unanimous decision over another Dominican, Grecia Nova, and stayed busy with a first round knockout of Kristina Boras from Croatia in a non title-bout last December.
Now the 31-year-old from nearby Karlsruhe is ready to take the next step, and if she is successful in winning the vacant Intercontinental title she could soon be a legitimate contender for the Unified Womens World Featherweight title, currently held by fellow German Elina Tissen.
In Diana “La Evangelica” Garcia she will be facing a very experienced opponent who has fought some of the best in the world, and also beat a few of them, and challenged for various championships since entering the paid ranks in 2001.
Despite a modest 13-20 (4) ledger, Garcia is a tough foe for anyone, as she proved in her most recent bout when she won the Dominican Super Featherweight title, by dominating and eventually stopping the highly favored Marisol Reyes in ten rounds.
A very intriguing match-up on paper, the Melanie Zwecker vs. Diana Garcia WBF Intercontinental Featherweight title fight will be promoted by Michael Siegel.
