5'6" Bettina Csábi was born on 2nd October, 1977, in Bácsalmás, Hungary and lives in Jánoshalma, Hungary. She is trained by István Koller and managed by Felix Rácz.

After primary school she attended Bela III Secondary School in Baja and then the University of Szeged, Hungary, where she received her doctorate in law on June 29, 2003. 

Bettina began her interest in combat sports in 1986, at age 9, when she began to study kyokushin karate in Baja. She went on to win Hungarian championships in kyokushin karate in 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000. In Muay Thai, she was the Hungarian champion in 1999, 2000; IAMTF world champion in 2001 and MTA professional world champion in 2002. She is still an active kickboxer.

She made her professional boxing debut on October 28, 2000 in Tatabánya, Hungary, where she defeated Krisztina Stefula of Békéscsaba, Hungary by a four-round decision. Stefula fell to 0-2.

On November 18, 2000 in Dunaújváros, Hungary, she won a four-round decision over Marianna Hudák of Tököl, Hungary, who fell to 1-1.

The spring of 2001 was a busy time for Bettina in the ring ...

On April 22, 2001 in Dunaújváros, Hungary she knocked out Veronika Szücs of Hungary in the sixth round of a scheduled six-rounder, dropping Szücs to 0-5 as a pro boxer. Szücs has not fought since.

On May 4, 2001 in Budapest she won a four-round decision over Zsuzsanna Kormos of Hungary, who fell to 0-3 with the loss and hasn't fought since.

On May 12, 2001 in Mössingen, Germany she won a four-round decision over Heidi Fischer of Germany, who was making her pro debut.

On May 18, 2001 in Budapest, she won a six-round decision over Melinda Papp of Hungary, who fell to 0-5.

On July 13, 2001 in Budapest, she knocked out pro debut fighter Margareta Vasiliu of Romania in the final round of a scheduled four-rounder.

On October 13, 2001 at Népligeti Sportcsarnok in Budapest, Hungary, she advanced to 8-0 (2 KOs) with a four-round decision over Daniela Graff of Germany, who fell to 1-2-1.

On December 14, 2001 in Budapest, Hungary, Bettina (117 ˝ lbs) advanced to 9-0 (2 KOs) with a four-round unanimous decision over Cristina Gutierrez (117ľ lbs) of Spain who fell to 0-3-1. Csábi was the busier and tried to jab and move against a heavier and slower Gutierrez but neither showed great technical ability. Gutierrez was too slow to catch Csábi unless Csábi chose to stand and trade punches. After three rounds of relatively uninspiring action, Csábi boxing to the best of her ability, suddenly landed a solid combination and dropped the Spaniard. Although Gutierrez tried hard, her attacks were limited to clumsy rushes, which Csábi dealt with easily.

On March 9, 2002 in Budapest, Hungary, she advanced to 10-0-0 (2 KO) with a four-round unanimous decision over unranked Monika Petrova of Bulgaria, who fell to 1-3-0 (0 KO). Csábi dominated the bout and left Petrova bleeding heavily from her nose.

On June 22, 2002 in Vienna, Austria, Bettina Csábi won by TKO over pro debuter Nicoletta Lascu of Romania just 0:25 into the first round of a scheduled six-rounder, Csábi was now 11-0-0 (3 KO). 

On August 31, 2002 at Hotel Sonne in Linz, Austria, she won a second-round TKO over Zina Minai of Romania. Csábi knocked Minai down twice in the second round on the way to a 12-0-0 (4 KO) record. Mina fell to 0-2. 

On September 21, 2002 in Lugner City, Vienna, Austria, she won a fourth-round TKO over Simone Suciu of Romania, who  was making her pro debut. 

On November 9, 2002 at Trend Eventhotel Pyramid in Vösendorf, Vienna, Austria, Bettina (115˝ lbs) advanced to 14-0-0 (5 KO) and won the Austrian International Bantamweight title with a ten-round unanimous decision over unranked Monika Petrova (115Ľlbs) of Sofia, Bulgaria who fell to 1-4-0 (0 KO) in bouts reported to WBP, but may have two more wins on her docket according to some European reports. Csabi said that this fight was more difficult than her previous bout with Petrova, because Petrova was better prepared for her in this rematch.

On April 12, 2003 at Aktív Sporthalle, Güssing, Burgenland, Austria, Bettina (118 lbs) won by a KO at 0:48 in the first round over Ramona Telefan (119Ľ lbs) of Romania. Csábi was now 15-0-0 (6 KO) while Telefan fell to 1-2-0 (0 KO).  [Video]

On November 15, 2003 at Trend Eventhotel Pyramid, Vienna, Austria, she TKO'd unranked Simone Suciu of Romania in the fifth round of a scheduled six-round bout. WBAN correspondent Jolly Dee reported, "Several boxing fans and experts were worried about Bettina because she has had a bout of pneumonia for a while and she was boxing with her sickness because she did not want to get this match cancelled. Fortunately, her boxing performance showed no doubt because she did a really great job in the ring. Each round was won by her. In addition Bettina won the 4th round with 2 points because the Romanian was warned. In the 5th round Suicu's trainer had to give up the fight, (throw in the towel) since the Romanian boxer's nose had got broken and started to bleed." Csábi is now 16-0-0 (7 KO) while Suciu fell to 0-5-0 (0 KO).

On February 21, 2004 at Sport Hall in Tapolca, Hungary, Bettina (113Ľ lbs) TKO'd Ágnes Varga of Hungary in the second round of a scheduled six-rounder. A WBAN correspondent writes "In the first round, Csábi landed a series of combinations that hurt Varga. Just when Varga looks like she is gaining control over the fight, Csábi comes back with the power. In round two, in the first minute of that round, Csábi landed a solid punch to Varga's head. Varga shaken, the referee stopped the fight." Varga was making her pro debut.

Up to this point, Bettina Csábi had compiled a solid 17-0 (8 KO) record against mostly unranked bantamweights with few wins to their credit.  It was time for her to move up to more challenging competition ...  

On April 17, 2004 at Fönix Sport Center in Debrecen, Hungary, Bettina Csábi (114ľ lbs) won the vacant WIBF-GBU Bantamweight title with a ten-round unanimous (96-95,97-93,98-93) decision over Galina Koleva Ivanova (116Ľ lbs) of Bulgaria. Ivanova, who had soundly defeated her fellow Bulgarian Daisy Lang for the WIBF Junior Bantamweight title in November 2003, fell to 5-4 (0 KO) with this loss. 

This win established Bettina Csábi as a world-class pro boxing contender. She has said that she intends to go down a few pounds to campaign at Flyweight in future.

On June 12, 2004 at Westend City Center in Budapest, Hungary,
Bettina (116 lbs) won by a sixth-round TKO over Viktória Vörös (5' 8˝", 120Ľ  lbs) of Györ, Hungary in a scheduled six-rounder. Vörös, making her pro boxing debut, was a late substitute after Csábi's original opponent Eva Liskova backed out of the fight. Vörös is a former amateur kickboxing World Cup silver medalist.

Bettina Csábi vs. Viktoria Milo in Nagykálló

On September 25, 2004 at Sporthall of Nagykálló in Hungary,
Bettina Csábi fought local heroine Viktoria Milo to a ten-round majority (97-94,97-93,95-95) decision for the vacant WIBF-GBU Super Flyweight title. According to WBAN correspondent JollyDee, "The bout was qualitative and balanced as well. Bettina's jabs were dominating the match, but the Milo was better in the near and her body shots were very dangerous. At the beginning of the match Csabi was the dominant however in the middle of the fight Milo succeeded in taking charge. When the fight ended, both boxers believed to be the winner. In my opinion at ringside 96-94 of Csábi was the most objective. With her victory Csábi has proved that she is in the elite, and Regina Halmich's official challenger."  (For weigh-in and fight photos by JollyDee, see Photo Galleries #206 and #209 on the WBAN Member Site).
