Diana Prazak to fight Frida Wallberg June 14th for WBC/WIBA and WBAN Belt!

(APR 12) Australian world champion super featherweight Diana Prazak will make her second attempt to unify the division (WBC/WIBA) when she faces Swedish champion Frida Wallberg on June 14.

Prazak was scheduled to fight Wallberg in November but the fight was cancelled at late notice due to the Swede being injured.

Prazak was matched against Victoria Cisneros on the Fire and Ice undercard in December last year in New Mexico but again, injuries changed the course of her career. Myriam Lamare was to fight Holly Holm in the main event but also withdrew hurt. So Prazak stepped up to fight the Preacher’s Daughter herself.

Her full time coach where she now lives in Los Angeles, Lucia Rijker, had also been preparing Lamare and decided that Prazak would be up to the challenge despite the higher weight.

So Prazak faced the pound for pound queen of women’s boxing, the 12-time three weight division world champion and one of the most successful female boxers in the world on December 7 for the IBA  light welterweight world title.

Prazak lost on points but won over the crowd with her courage and tenacity. But 140lbs is not her natural weight class. So she is pleased to be resuming her campaign at super featherweight where she belongs and holds the WIBA title after stopping Canadian Lindsay Garbatt in Melbourne, Australia in 2011.

She will be fighting Frida Wallberg for the WBC,  WIBA, and WBAN super featherweight championship of the world in Stockholm, Sweden. Her year training with Lucia Rijker has sharpened her skills and power and she is probably better prepared than she was in December to face Wallberg, Sweden’s most successful female boxer and veteran of 48 wins out of 53 amateur fights and the current WBC champion, undefeated in 11 fights with 0 KOs while Prazak is 13-2 with 7 KOS.
