(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 40-36.

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 is a sampling of Gumliiska's boxing style]

 

Lastly in the fourth bout on this card, welterweight Borislava Goranova, won by a split over Tzank Karova, now 1-5-0, in a four rounder. Judges scores were 40-36, 39-37 and 40-36. The judges scores were 40-36, 37-39, and 40-36. Goranova, another longtime veteran in the sport has been boxing since 2000.
