About Ramona Kuhne:
5'7" Kühne was born in Berlin, Germany on January 31, 1980. The
younger of two daughters of a truck driver, Kühne preferred to
spend time with her father in his workshop than to play with
girls her age, and played soccer with boys. Her childhood idol
was action superstar Jackie Chan. She tried to emulate Chan and
at age 12 began in the martial art discipline yiu yutsu -
against her parents' will.
Her decision paid off as her yiu yutsu career was crowned with
success. She was the Berlin and German champion several times
and in 2000 she claimed the bronze medal at the world
championship in Sweden. [More on WBAN,
Kerwat, on the other hand,
has 6 pro bouts, with five of those by KO. Fighting Kuehne
will probably be one of Kerwat's toughest challenges in her
boxing career thus far.
