By WBA 16/03/2009
Female WBA world flyweight champion Susi Kentikian (23-0, 16 KOs) returns to action in front of her hometown crowd. In a very attractive matchup on March 20th at the „ProSieben Fight Night“ at the famous Sporthalle in Hamburg, the “Killer Queen” will defend her WBA belt against Elena Reid. The experienced American is best known for her two grueling bouts with female ring legend Regina Halmich. ProSieben will broadcast the fight live from 10:15 pm.
Elena “Baby Doll” Reid (19-4-6, 5 KOs) is well known to the German boxing fans when she battled Regina Halmich twice. In their first bout in november 2004 Reid claimed a controversial draw. In their rematch in 2005 Halmich had to give her best to win on points this time against the powerful and lively US girl Elena Reid.
Susi Kentikian, who showed great fights in the past, will have to demonstrate her excellent skills. Unbeaten in her 23 fights with 16 coming by KO, the reigning world champion had tough battles against Hagar Finer Shmoulefeld und Anastasia Toktaulova which she has mastered superbly.
