Nikki Adler, Zecirevic New WBF Champions
On Saturday night, May 25, the World Boxing Federation crowned two new champions as Niki Adler won the vacant Womens World Super Middleweight title in Russia, and Enes Zecirevic captured the vacant International Super Middleweight crown in Switzerland.
In a rematch of their original 2011 encounter, won by Adler on points, the German stylist again beat Latvian Zane Brige by unanimous decision at the Olymp arena in Volgodonsk, on a show promoted by SKV Boxing. The title was recently vacated by another German, Christina Hammer.
Both fighters clearly came to win, and put on another entertaining fight for the fans, but Adler was often just a little bit busier and more precise with her punches.
In the end judges Alexander Margushin, Irene Kostenko and Alexander Kalinkin all scored in favour of Adler: 98-93, 99-92 and 98-92. Referee was Irakly Malazonia.
26-year-old Adler took her professional ledger to 10-0 (6), and Brige is incredibly now only 2-3-1 (1) in the paid ranks, having won the Latvian national title and with two of the losses being in championship bouts.
At the Sporthalle Badbetrieb in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland, locally based Bosnian-born Enes Zecirevic dominated the younger, but much more experienced, Mikheil Khutsisvili from Georgia.
After ten rounds of boxing, judges Jean-Marcel Nartz, Domenico Gottardi and Beat Hausammann all had Zecirevic clearly ahead with scores of 100-90, 100-90 and 99-91. Referee in this one was Fabian Guggenheim.
The new WBF International champion improved his undefeated record to 10-0 (6), while Khutsisvili lost his first bout in a while, after four wins and a draw in his last five, and drops to 26-19-5 (19).
Promoters were Team CALE Boxing Promotion and Leonardo Caputo.
