Women’s Boxing: Anne Sophie Mathis defeats Cindy Serrano.

Women’s Boxing: Anne Sophie Mathis defeats Cindy Serrano.

Anne Sophie Mathis (l) v. Cindy Serrano

Current WBF, WIBA and WIBF Women’s Welterweight title holder Anne Sophie Mathis (25-1, 21-KO’s) defeated Cindy “Checkmate” Serrano (15-4-1, 7 KO’s) with a commanding display of her considerable boxing skills on Saturday night in Yutz, France.  Reporters on the scene noted that Serrano was outclassed, but that her deep reserves of stamina and grit kept her in the game to the finish.  All three judges scored the ten-round bout 100-90.

Boxing Press quoted Mathis as saying, “it was very hot here tonight, but it was a good experience going the distance.  She was tough, and you can’t win by knockout every time.”

Anne Sophie Mathis is slated to fight Holy Holm (30-1-3, 9 KO’s) this coming December on Holly’s home turf in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Cindy Serrano’s younger sister Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano (12-0-1,8-KO’s) recently grabbed the vacant IBF Super Featherweight title defeating contender Kimberly Conner.

Women’s championship boxing in South Africa!

Women’s championship boxing in South Africa!

In a first for women’s boxing, South African women’s boxer Noni “She Bee Stingin” Tenge (10-0-1, 8 KOs) will be challenging the IBF Women’s Welterweight current champion belt-holder and New Zealand’s own, Daniella “The Diamond” Smith (10-1) on June 11th at the Carnival City Big Top Arena in Johannesburg, South Africa.  According to promoter Branco Milenkovic, this will be the first legitimate women’s championship fight to be staged in Africa — not to mention South Africa.

Tenge, 29, is undefeated and also holds the WBF Women’s Welterweight crown — though the thinking goes that the IBF crown is the bigger “jewel.”

Smith captured her world championship belt this past November when she defeated Jennifer Retzke.  In an article on May 20th in New Zealand’s The Northern Advocate newspaper,  Daniela Smith, 38, is quoted as saying “It’s the first time that I’ll be fighting at altitude and so that’s going to be different but hopefully it won’t make too much of a difference.” (Click here for link.)

Smith has also noted that there’s not a lot of footage on Tenge, so she is preparing for everything and anything for her upcoming bout.

For a preview of the upcoming action, check out the video footage of Daniella Smith in her bout against Jennifer Retzke.  No word yet on the media outlet for the South African championship duel.
