Rola El Halabi Successfully Defends her WBF Title; and wins the vacant WIBA and UBF Titles

(MAY 11) Last night in Germany, WBF Light welterweight Champion Rola El Halabi successfully defended her title after what was described in a press release that the fight was a "grueling war" with American Victoria Cisneros in Ulm, Germany.  El Halabi also won the vacant Light welterweight WIBA and UBF Light welterweight title.

Both fighters went all out in this heated affair, and it was clear from the start that both were prepared to go through fire to win. The challenger had declared that she would do anything to bring the title back to her kids on Mothers day, and the champion was equally determined to not let that happen.

Cisneros knew only one way, forward, and landed with heavy hooks to the body throughout the fight, but El Halabi countered nicely with hard uppercuts and quick combinations to body and head. Regardless of how many times El Halabi connected with massive bombs, Cisneros kept coming at her.

After ten pulsating rounds of boxing, going back and forth, judges Vincent Dupas (France), Uwe Lorch (Germany) and Bernd Hupfer (Germany) scored the bout 97-93, 97-94 and a too wide 98-93, all in favor of Halabi, who deserved to win but undoubtedly got one of her hardest tests in a true world-class encounter.

Rola El Halabi, making her second title-defense, improved her professional record to 14-1 (7), while Victoria Cisneros falls to a very deceiving 11-15-2 (4) ledger. Both boxers did themselves and women´s boxing proud, and a rematch would certainly be an attractive option.

On the same night about 150 Kilometers away in Russheim, Germany, undefeated Melanie Zwecker captured the vacant WBF Womens International Featherweight title with a convincing victory over Grecia Nova from the Dominican Republic.

In a fully packed arena, Zwecker and Nova put on a good fight where the visitor tried to unsettle the hometown favorite with wild attacks, but Zwecker managed to keep her off with excellent counter-punching. When Nova attacked, Zwecker often connected with a hard straight right hand to stop her in her tracks.

In round six, Zwecker injured her right hand badly but impressively kept her cool and did well in boxing almost exclusively with the left for the last two rounds. In the end there was no doubt who the winner was, as the judges voted 80-72, 79-75 and 78-74 for Zwecker.

The new WBF International Champion is now 6-0 (2), working her way towards a possible challenge of WBF World Champion Gaelle Amand from France. Grecia Nova drops to 11-21-4 (3).
