(OCT 27) Ozlem Sahin (6-0-1,
KOs 3) is back. Saturday, Sahin and her opponent Janina Benz (3-2-0,
KOs 1), had the only female boxing match at the Arena Boxpromotion
event in Cuxhaven/Germany.
Although Sahin had no opportunity
to fight these last ten months for lack of fight arrangements
she seems to have lost nothing of her speed and punch. Right
from the beginning, Sahin dominated her opponent at will,
who is also an experienced and successful kickboxer.
Over and over again Sahin landed
her furious right-left combinations. In the third and fourth
round almost every jab of Sahin proved successful, and they hit
her opponent hard.
In the fourth round, Benz’ head sagged after a right-hand punch
from Sahin but she managed to recover quite quickly. The last
two rounds followed the by then well-established pattern, with
Benz seeming severely shaken in round six. The judges scored the
light flyweight fight 60:54, 60:54, 58:56.
Sahin, who fought
her first six-rounder, demonstrated once more why many people
consider her the greatest talent in German female boxing.
