(JAN 15) On Saturday, January 12,
2014, at the Boxing Hall, in Razgrad, Bulgaria, there were four
female bouts on the card, and seven men's boxing bouts featured
on this card.
In a lightweight bout, Kremena Petkova, now 9-8-1, (1KO) won a
four-round unanimous decision against Anna Savova, now 0-3-0.
Petkova has been very busy in the ring fighting five times since
fighting for the vacant WBC Silver light welterweight title in
February of 2013, when she lost by a lop-sided 10-rounder
against Klara Svensson.
Petkova has been fighting as a pro since June of 2010. Her
opponent, Savova had two fights in 2012, losing to the same
opponent Polina Pencheva. She did not fight at all in 2013, and
then took on more tough opposition when fight Petkova.
In a flyweight bout, Svetla Taskova,
now 5-32-1 (1KO), won a
four-round unanimous decision over Aleksandra Petrova, now
1-1-0. All judges scores were 40-36. Taskova's boxing career
spans from June 1998 until present. She has literally fought
anyone that are in the sport from the very best to some
newcomers. [Check out some Past footage of Svetla, when she
fought Cathy Brown in 2005.]
WBAN interviewed Taskova early in her career and she told us at
the time that she had been involved in kickboxing, boxing,
wrestling, and bodybuilding, and had begun boxing in 1994. When
Taskova was asked why she got into boxing, she had only one word
for it, "Pleasure."
In another four round bout, Galina Gumliiska, now 10-28-0 (1KO),
defeated Stefani Radeva in a lightweight competition, by a
unanimous decision. Final judges scores were 39-37, 40-36 and
Amazing as it is, Gumliiska began her boxing career in 1997 and
boxed until 2002. She then had a couple of years gap, and
returning to the ring in December of 2005, making her return (if
you can believe this) in a world title bout against the then
undefeated boxer Ina Menzer!
Gumliiska had fought many of the top female boxers, but has lost
a whopping 28 fights in her pro boxing career thus far. [Below
