(MAR 28) Last night at the MBS
Arena, Potsdam, Brandenburg, Germany, in what appeared to be a
not-to-difficult bout for Ramona Kuehne, 128¾, of Germany, she
successfully defended her WBO, WBF, WIBF titles when the fight
was stopped by a TKO in the seventh when it appeared that her
opponent Gina Chamie,127¾, of Hungary injured her elbow.
In the corner when the fight was
not going to be continued Chamie held on to her teammate tightly
as the fight was stopped at that time. [see video]
If you can make it through the
non-actioned fight there are several rounds posted on the net
and I have provided those links at the bottom of this
Looking at the tale of the tape,
Chamie came into the fight with a 8-0 record, and even took a
WBC Youth title fight against a 5-12 fighter in one of her last
fights with a fighter ranked at about #62 on BoxRec.
Going into this fight Chamie was rated #14 (as a lightweight)
Kuehne, now 22-1 (8KO), is rated #4 with Boxrec. Kuehne is
rated #6 with WBAN, and Chamie is off the map with WBAN.
It is amazing to WBAN that this fight warranted three world
titles---and how did three federations all approve of such a
sanctioning of a unification of belts. So let's see who
was rated ABOVE Chamie and could have been a much more
competitive and probably more deserving of such a unification.
On WBAN, here are the opponents that we see in Kuehne's weight
Diana Prazak #1 with Boxrec, and WBAN's and WBC's champion;
Amanda Serrano #2, Claudia Lopez #3, Zarika Njeri #4.
On Boxrec, who was rated
Diane Prazak #1, Hyun-Mi Choi #2, Claudia Lopez #3, Kuehne is
#4, Amanda Serrano #5, Maureen Shea #6, Tiffany Junot #7,
Lissette Medal #8, Cindy Serrano #9, Natalie Aquirre #10, Eva
Wahlstrom #11, Ruth Aquino #12, Natasha Spence #13...The
list goes on....because she is not listed as a "Super
Featherweight....she is listed as a "lightweight".
So let's go to the lightweight division, where she is listed on
Women in this sport want
recognition. They want credibility. They want
higher purses and greater opportunities. These types of
uninteresting multi-world title fights do little for the
sport----believe me I have covering it for close to 16 years on
the net---and I would not pay to see this fight.
