Hammer Retains WBF Crown, Thomas and Browning Draws
by WBF
July 14, 2013
     
   
   

(JULY 14) World Boxing Federation Womens World Middleweight Champion Christina Hammer retained her crown on Saturday night, July 13, at the Energie Verbund-Arena in Dresden, Germany when she unanimously outpointed tough Swedish challenger Mikaela Lauren.

Promoted by Sport Events Steinforth, this was the sixth successful defense for the undefeated 22-year-old Dortmund-resident Hammer, since she won the WBF title in February 2011.

In Lauren, Hammer was up against a skilled and persistent challenger, but while it was a tough battle between two world class boxers it was clear that Hammer was the better fighter in almost every round.

Lauren tried everything she could to get the upper hand, but Hammer was effective with hard counter combinations and rarely let the Swede get the better of the exchanges.

After ten entertaining rounds of boxing, judges Frank Michael Maass, Terry O'Connor and Alejandro Lopez scored the bout 100-90, 99-91 and 98-92 in favor of the defending champion, who improved her spotless record to 15-0 (7).

Mikaela Lauren (37) travels back to Stockholm with only her third loss in twenty-two fights (19-3, 7 KOs), and can be happy that she put up a respectable performance against the number-one middleweight in the world.

Also on Saturday night, but thousands of miles away across the Atlantic, at the Madison Civic Center in Madison, West Virginia, USA the WBF North American Cruiserweight title remained vacant when co-challengers Bobby Thomas Jr. and Warren Browning fought to a draw.

This was a rematch of their January bout which Thomas (12-1-1, 9 KOs) won after two rounds when Browning (17-3-2, 12 KOs) retired on his stool due to an arm injury.

This time the fight went all ten rounds, and both boxers gave everything they had to win, only to see the judges at ringside unable to separate them when the decision was announced.

A third fight could be in the making, as the spectators definitely got their money’s worth. Special guest in attendance was former undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the world James “Buster” Douglas.

Promoters were Chase Hill of Black Eye Promotions, in association with Jerry Thomas.
