(MAY 13) Greek female
fighter Areti Mastrodouka (9-0) sensationally captured three
World Titles on Saturday (9th May) against Spanish opponent Loli
Munoz (12-14-3) winning via unanimous points decision in her
hometown of Athens in front of a crowd of around 2000. London
based Mastrodouka, trained by Alec Wilkey at Poplar’s Lansbury
ABC, came away with the WBF, WIBF and GBU belts after an
exciting Super- Featherweight unification match up at
Panathinaikos FC Stadium Hall where the bout was staged.
‘The Master’ Mastrodouka appeared
to dominate the early exchanges of the bout by landing the
cleaner shots by countering the hard working Munoz. Both
fighters kept a high pace throughout which made for some good
viewing for the onlooking support and it was evident that Munoz
was coming to win, but it was the superior boxing skills of
Mastrodouka which were apparent with some sharp jabs and
straight left hands catching the eye of the judges.
At the final bell it was unmistakably Mastrodouka’s hand that
was raised by referee Toni Tiberi with all 3 judges in her
favour with scores of 98-94, 98-93 and 100-90. The Greek
southpaw was presented with the WBF and WIBF belts to the
delight of the Athens crowd to add to the World GBU title she
won last time out against Hana Horakova (6-11).
As a result unbeaten 39 year-old Mastrodouka can now look at
some bigger fights in the Super Featherweight division with the
chance to unify more titles by pitting her wits against the best
in the world.
