5'5" flyweight/junior bantamweight Nadia Hokmi (aka Nadia Imine Hokmi) was born on July 15 1977 and fights out of Strasbourg, France. 

She made her pro debut on May 3, 1996, in a six-rounder with Silke Weickenmeier of Speyer, Germany in Weickemeier's home town. Weickenmeier, a future WIBF world champion who was winless as a pro boxer at the time of this match but still competing as a kickboxer, won a decision over the debuting Nadia.

Competing on the French team in the 54-kg division of the 2000 European Cup women's amateur tournament, Hokmi defeated Marina Kozerod of Ukraine in her semi-final bout on April 7 2000 but lost to Oksana Vasilyeva of Russia in the final on April 9.

In the 106-lb division of the 2001 AIBA world amateur championships in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Nadia competed on the Polish national team (she is of Algerian descent) but lost by RSCO-3 in her preliminary bout to eventual silver medalist and future multiple world champion M.C.Merykom of India.

Hokmi returned to professional boxing on May 15 2004, in Schiltigheim, France. She weighed in at 120 lbs and won a four-round decision over Valerie Rangeard (121 lbs), a French kickboxer who had been trying her hand at pro boxing since 1998 but remained winless at 0-9 with her loss to the re-debuting Hokmi.

On November 27, 2004 in Saint Ouen, France, Nadia (119 lbs) won a four-round decision over pro debuter Monika Sobcyk (121 lbs) of Poland, who has not fought again.

On March 20, 2005 in Rumelange, Luxembourg, Nadia knocked out pro debuter Valeria Zalorikova in the first round of a scheduled four-rounder.

On April 2, 2005 at Bar-le-Duc, France, Nadia (117 lbs) TKO'd Irena Kokeniova (112 lbs) of the Czech Republic in the first round of a scheduled four-rounder, dropping Kokeniova to 0-2.

On May 28, 2005 in Saint-Denis, France Nadia (116 lbs) won a four-round decision over Monica Herzilla (116 lbs) of Poland, dropping Herzilla's pro record to 1-2.


Bettina Csabi was badly bloodied in her first fight with Hokmi

On December 10, 2005 at Magvassy Sporthall in Gyr, Hungary, Nadia (116 lbs) battled unbeaten Bettina Csabi (116 lbs) of Hungary for eight rounds of a scheduled ten-rounder for the WIBF and GBU World Bantamweight titles. Csabi was badly cut on her forehead in the second round, apparently by Hokmi's gumshield, and she ended the eighth with her face covered in her own blood. The messy injury provoked a stoppage after which Csabi received a win by a 78-75,78-75,79-75 technical decision. Csabi progressed to 26-0 with the win and offered Hokmi a return match.

On April 22, 2006 the rematch with Bettina Csabi took place at the ASE Sporthall in Paks, Hungary. Nadia (116 lbs) again battled the undefeated Csabi (116 lbs) closely, this time over the full 10 rounds for the WIBF and GBU bantamweight titles. The judges' scoring was again unanimous for Csabi: Daniel Van De Wiele (Belgium) 97-94, Bela Florian (Hungary); 97-93, Andre Van Grootenbruel (Belgium) 98-92. (For more fight photos by JollyDee, see Photo Gallery #287 on the WBAN Member Site).

On July 22, 2006 at the Markplatz in Karlsruhe, Germany, Nadia KO'd the inexperienced Anja Beger of Germany in the first round of a scheduled six-rounder, dropping Beger's record to 0-2.

On September 16, 2006 at the Reihalle in Offenburg, Germany, Nadia TKO'd Anja Beger in the second round of another scheduled six-rounder, dropping Beger's record to 0-4 (and apparently convincing Beger not to fight again).

On October 1, 2006, at the A5 Leisure Center in Bruchsal, Germany, Nadia won a four-round decision over southpaw Floearea Lihet of Romania, who fell to 4-2 (3 KO's).


Hokmi vs. Christensen in October 2006

On October 14, 2006 at Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, Denmark, Nadia (118 lbs) fought undefeated Anita Christensen (118 lbs) of Denmark for the vacant WBC, WBA and GBU bantamweight titles, losing by a controversial but still unanimous (96-94,96-94,97-94) decision.  According to WBAN correspondent Torben L., Nadia Hokmi came forward from the first bell, and it was obvious that Christensen was struggling to find a way to counter her very aggressive style, although the Danish champion had a slight reach advantage. He adds that "Anita Christensen really got her straight punches working from round 7 and scored with plenty of left-right-left combinations in the last four rounds. The first 5-6 rounds were fought at a very high pace, possibly too high for Hokmi, who appeared to be running out of steam in the later rounds."  Hokmi was unhappy with the decision and took the microphone to air her frustration after the scores were announced, calling the decision a big problem for women's boxing. Hokmi fell to 7-4-0 (4 KOs) with the loss while Christensen improved to 19-0 with the win.

On January 9, 2007 at Palazzetto dello Sport in Bergamo, Italy, Nadia (111 lbs) fought to a (96-93,95-95,92-97) draw with Simona Galassi (111 lbs) of Forli, Italy for the vacant EBU Flyweight title. This was another bout that many observers felt that Hokmi had won. Galassi, a former world amateur champion, moved her pro record to 2-0-1 with the draw.

On March 31, 2007 at Daimler Benz in Karlsruhe, Germany, Nadia TKO'd Pia Mazelanik of Dorsten, Germany in the second round of a scheduled four-rounder, dropping Mazelanik to 3-1.

On May 25, 2007 at the Fight Night Arena in Cologne, Germany, Nadia (111 lbs) lost a controversial ten-round split (97-93,92-98,93-97) decision to rising German star Susianna Kentikian (112 lbs) for the WBA Flyweight title. Kentikian started better but she appeared to go into a lull in the middle of the fight, before raising her game again in the final rounds. Unlike earlier opponents of the Armenian-born dynamo known as Susi the "Killer Queen", Hokmi did not let Kentikian settle down and wasn't intimidated by her always-aggressive and busy style. Kentikian improved her record to 17-0 with this win.

On October 13, 2007 at Herrmann-Gieseler-Halle in Magdeburg, Germany, Nadia (113 lbs) TKO'd Svetla Taskova (111 lbs) of Bulgaria in the fourth round of a scheduled eight-rounder.  Taskova, a perpetual "opponent" in European rings, fell to 4-21-1 (1 KO) with the unsurprising loss. 


Hokmi (purple) vs Kentikian in Hamburg

On December 7, 2007 at Alsterdorfer Sporthalle in Hamburg, Germany, Susi Kentikian retained her WBA Flyweight Title and gained the WIBF Flyweight Belt recently vacated by Regina Halmich, with a 10-round unanimous decision over Nadia.  The judges scored the bout 97-94, 96-94 and 97-95 for Kentikian.  WBAN correspondent Torben L. reported that "Particularly in the first rounds, the home town girl succeeded with combinations to the body of the taller Frenchwoman, often ending with one or two blows to the head once the guards came down. Hokmi scored most with her left jab, and looked best when she was able to keep the aggressive Kentikian at length. The good skills of Hokmi became evident when she was under pressure on the ropes. Susi Kentikian has stopped many of her former opponents, when she managed to catch them on the ropes and peppering them with punches from all angles. But Hokmi's good defensive skills enabled her to weather the storm and only let fairly few punches slip through her guard, when Kentikian had her backed up against the ropes. Kentikian's quick reflexes made her (a) difficult target for Hokmi, while her fast hands found their target frequently and adding up on the scorecards. But it was far from one-way traffic. Hokmi got through with some telling right hands as well as her left jab, and looked especially strong in the 5th and 8th round. Kentikian suffered a small cut over her left eye in the ninth round, while Hokmi was bleeding from the nose throughout most of the fight."   Kentikian, who is evidenly one of the crown princesses seeking to occupy to the super-star throne left empty by the retirement of Germany's boxing Queen, improved to 19-0-0 (14 KOs) with the hard-fought win while Hokmi fell to 8-6-1 (5 KOs).

On May 31, 2008 at Salle Roger Boileau in Dombasle-sur-Meurthe, Meurthe-et-Moselle, France, Nadia won a third-round TKO over Elena Miftode of Bucharest, Romania, who retired after the third round. Miftode's ecord fell to 6-10-0 (3 KO's) with the loss.

On May 15, 2009 at Stade Joffre Lefebvre in Lingolsheim, Bas-Rhin, France, Nadia won a econd-round TKO over Claudi Ferenci of Slovakia who fell to 1-4-0 (0 KO's) with the loss.

On December 5, 2009 at Salle Florival, in Guebviller, Haut-Rhin, France, Nadia won an eight-round unanimous decision over Isabelle Leonardi of Clichy la Garenne, France who fell to 4-7-1 (0 KO's) with the loss.  The bout was for the French bantamweight title.

On January 23, 2010 at Salle des Dragons in Saverne, Bas-Rhin, France, Nadia won a six-round decision over Renata Szebeledi of Budapest, Hungary who fell to 2-6-0 (1 KO) with the loss.

On March 19, 2010 at Salle des Sports in Metz, Moselle, France, Nadia Hokmi won a six-round decision over Doris Koehler of Vienna, Asutria, who fell to 5-8-1 (1 KO).

On June 5, 2010 at Stade Joffre Lefebvre in Lingolsheim, Bas-Rhin, France, Nadia (115 lbs) won a ten-round unanimous (100-90,99-91,99-91) decision in dominant fashion over Elena Reid (114 lbs) of Las Vegas, NV, USA for the vacant WBF Junior Bantamweight title. Hokmi improved to 10-6-1 (2 KO's) with the win while Reid, a former IFBA, WIBA and IWBF Flyweight champion, fell to 19-6-6 (5 KO's).

On June 18, 2011 at Stade Joffre Lefebvre in Lingolsheim, Bas-Rhin, France Nadia Hokmi won a clear 10-round unanimous decision over Turkish-born Hlya Şahin of Cologne, Germany for the WIBF Junior Bantamweight title.  Hokmi progressed to 18-6-1 (8 KO's) while Şahin fell to 20-3 (2 KO's).

Hokmi has been the victim of several dubious decisions that did not do justice to her performance in the ring.  Her future in the sport  may depend as much on the skill of her managers in negotiating fights with neutral judging as it does on her own skill in the ring.
