(DEC 14)  Last night at the Zaal Forum, Aalst, Oost-Vlaanderen, Belgium, Delfine Persoon, now 28-1-0 (13KO), won a 10th round TKO over Lucia Morelli, now 18-3-0,  to win the WIBF, WIBA and WBF Lightweight titles. According to Boxrec, Morelli went down in the sixth and the ninth round, with Persoon being deducted a point for hitting Morelli on the way down in 9th.

In a press release from the WBF, they wrote the following:

"Belgian star Delfine Persoon put on a convincing performance to dethrone Germany-based Italian Lucia Morelli of the WBF  World Lightweight title on Friday night, December 13, at the Zaal Forum in Aalst, Belgium.   This was a rematch of their 2012 shootout which Persoon won by fifth round TKO after a memorable back-and-forth brawl that some felt was stopped prematurely, but this time there was no controversy as Persoon dominated Morelli from the start."

The WBF described the fight as follows:  "Despite Persoon being in control most of the way, it was again an exciting fight where Morelli had her moments, especially with her hooks to body and head, but Persoon was the busier boxer and her combinations seemed harder and were certainly more frequent.   The now former champion was knocked down in round six and nine, and Persoon had a point deducted in the ninth when she hit Morelli while she was on the floor. Referee Daniel Van de Wiele stopped the bout at 1:40 of the tenth and final round, saving Morelli from further punishment.   At the time of the stoppage, judges Jean-Marcel Nartz, Olena Pobyvailo and Christophe Hembert all had Persoon (28) in front by 89-79."

This was Persoon's seventh fight this year!
