Menzer Retains WIBF Title
By Torben L. of Denmark
November 18, 2007

     
   
   
   
   

(NOV 18) Ina Menzer retained her WIBF Featherweight Title after a exciting and tough fight against Laura Serrano of Mexico in Magdeburg, Germany last night. It turned out to be the classical boxer vs.  fighter match. Although Menzer controlled the ring throughout the bout, the smaller and more aggressive Mexican kept her busy all the way, and was able to get through Menzer's defence with more punches than usual for the technically well skilled German.

Southpaw Serrano occasional succeeded in confusing Menzer by changing stance, and occasionally succeeded with telling blows, but most of her punches were lacking in precision to have a serious effect; while Menzer had obviously problems getting through with her usually very reliable left jabs. The judges scored the bout 97-93, 97-93 & 98-92 all in favour of Menzer.

40-year old Serrano had proclaimed before the fight, that a defeat would mean the end of her career in the Ring, and she confirmed this after the fight. She also expressed her disappointment at the verdict, and was of the opinion, that she had won the fight. Under all circumstances, she gave the fans a fight showing all the best of Mexican virtues: relentless aggression, a big fighting heart and giving it all until the last bell.

Although the outcome of the fight was not what she had hope for---she can be proud of her last appearance in the square Ring. Menzer, in her post fight interview, acknowledged that Serrano had been a one of her toughest opponents, and expressed her surprise that a 40-year-old could keep her under pressure right to the end. It prompted her to make the comparison between women and good wine. It gets better with age.

In a second women's bout Asiye Ozlem Sahin won her Junior Flyweight bout against Renata Depciyh of Poland by TKO in the 3rd round.
