Women on fight cards …
Susi Kentikian will be battling Carina Morena this weekend in Dusseldorf, Germany for the vacant WBA Flyweight Championship.
On the theme of professional women’s boxing … I thought I’d check out the fight cards for this coming Friday, November 30th and Saturday, December 1st using the World Schedule on BoxRec.

And the winner is … Germany with a total of three fight cards with a female bout on each one!
The big female fight, of course is the WBA Female Flyweight title match between Susi Kenttikian and Carina Moreno, which, thankfully, is being televised on Germany’s SAT1, but …. please, this is pathetic.
And here’s a question. Saturday night’s Austin Trout v. Miguel Cotto fight has a total of nine bouts on the card. Given all the incredible talent among NYC professional female fighters, not to mention women fighting out of the Northeast, not one female bout could be added by any of the count them, three promoters involved in putting the fight card together (that would be Golden Boy Promotions, SMS Promotions and Promociones Miguel Cotto)???
Oh right, it’s Showtime, but even HBO Boxing has female bouts on the undercard.
