(JUNE 17) Female
Strawweight star Oezlem Sahin and local Heavyweight Werner
Kreiskott are set to be the two main attractions on a show in
Velbert, Germany this Saturday, June 18, when both fight for
World Boxing Federation (WBF) titles at the EMKA Sportzentrum.
Sahin, a former two-time world
champion born in Turkey but now residing in Ludwigsburg,
Germany, will take on Hungarian Agnes Draxler in a fight for the
vacant WBF Womens Intercontinental Strawweight championship, a
title she has held before.
With a record of 20-1-1 (6) Sahin will be a healthy favorite
against Draxler, who challenged for the WBF Intercontinental
Flyweight title in 2013, when she was still only seventeen years
old, and currently spots a 9-12 (1) ledger.
Resurrected veteran Werner Kreiskott, 22-19-2 (16), will be
looking to build on an eleven-fight undefeated streak when he
face heavy-handed Drazan Janjanin, 11-6 (10), from Bosnia &
Herzegovina for the vacant WBF International Heavyweight title.
Kreiskott (37) went 12-19-1 in his first thirty-two professional
fights, and looked resigned to a role of being a good
journeyman, losing to accomplished opponents such as Willi
Fischer, Michael Sprott, Martin Rogan and Ruslan Chagaev.
But a 2012 upset victory over former British and Commonwealth
Champion, and Mike Tyson-conqueror, Danny Williams turned things
around for him. Baring one draw, he has since defeated every
opponent put in front of him, and captured a few titles along
Now he will continue his journey against Janjanin, who earlier
this year proved his worth by going the distance with former
European Champion Alexander Dimitrenko. Having challenged for
only minor championships, this will be the 27-year-old punchers
first crack at a meaningful title, but he has proved that he has
the power to threaten Kreiskott.
Promoted by Fight Club Wuppertal, the Sahin vs. Draxler /
Kreiskott vs. Janjanin World Boxing Federation (WBF) twin-bill
has been labelled “True Fighter: Second Chapter”. A stacked
undercard will lead up to the two title fights, and local fans
can expect an entertaining evening of action.
