Born in Greece, her home is in Athens. However, Areti has been training since July 2011 under ALEX WILKEY in the TKO Gym, London, England, where she is managed by JOHNNY EAMES.

Before this fight she had an amateur boxing record of 28 wins, and 7 losses Twice winning a Silver Medal as Runner Up in the 60 Kilogram's class in the Women’s Amateur World Championships in 2002 and 2003

Her record as a Full Contact Kickboxer was even better, winning the Women’s World Championship in the 60 Kilos weight class. Triumphant in 29 of her 30 fights.

Granted an annual licence by the British Boxing Board of Control she is keen to make her way as a professional boxer and is looking for sponsorship.

Her opponent: KRISTINE "Rattler" SHERGOLD (31) from Exeter, Devon, England who, after a short period as an amateur boxer has had an uneven record as a professional with 4 wins and 5 losses.

 MASTRODOUKAS ARM IN VICTORY

As soon as the fight ended the Referee Jeff Hinds unhesitatingly raised MASTRODOUKA'S arm as winner. It being confirmed when the score was announced as 60 points to 55 in her favour.

This was a good fight and a credit to womens' professional boxing. Both women where here to fight, and fought well - giving and receiving good punches. SHERGOLD should not be too disappointed with her loss against such an experienced opponent. She maintained a high work rate and bravely continued to attack right up to the end despite being continually punished for her aggression by the talented Greek. She had difficulty landing telling punches on her slippery advisary. Homogenic MASTRODOUKA fights like a man. She is very fast with both her fists, and moves well, delivering combinations to her opponent's head and body - wherever she sees an opening. Although describing herself as a Southpaw she seemed equally adept at leading with either hand. She continued to work inside with a good variety of punches. Her prefight record speaks for itself !

As a professional boxer MASTRODOUKA advances to 1 win and no losses, and SHERGOLD drops to 4 wins 6 losses

Speaking to your correspondent in her dressing room after the fight MASTRODOUKA in halting English paid tribute to her opponent. " I think it was a good fight. I think Kristine went inside to win and she did her best. She was a good fighter but I was better I was sick for two weeks (during training) ... I think I will be better (next time) Thank you "


SHERGOLD following previous practice refused to be interviewed.
Obviously upset by the decision she quickly left the building for her long journey home.
