(JAN 21) WBAN received reliable
information yesterday, that Elina Tissen, of Germany is vying for
another title shot----this time fighting for the GBC Super
Bantamweight Championship against Kenya’s Benedetta Kaloki. The
fight is set to take place at the Warendorf Nordhein-Westfalen in
Germany, this weekend on January 24th. This information is also
listed on BoxRec’s schedule of upcoming bouts.
Kaloki turned pro less than a year ago, with a current record of
3-3. Kaloki is reported to have been a former karate kickboxing ace,
before getting into boxing.
According to Boxrec, Kaloki, has three wins with the following
fighters. Christine Auma 0-1-0; Sarah Achieng 0-0-0; and a rematch
with Christine Auma at 0-2-0. All of these fights were four round

fought a total of 25 rounds in her six bouts of fighting. So one may

With that question in mind, let’s move on to Elina Tissen…
Tissen, now 7-2-0 (4KO), won her GBC Title belt by defeating a “not
rated” Elena Dima, who was 0-2-0 going into the fight. Dima was
stopped in the fourth round. How does one win ANY title belt
fighting a winless boxer?
Tissen’s “opponents” boxing records are an accumulated 2-22-0.
Boxrec has Tissen ranked at #38 worldwide.
Neither Tissen nor Kaloki are ranked with WBAN.
