WBO Jr. Lightweight Female World Champion Ewa Brodnicka Retains her title in Poland

#Poland #AndStill WBO Jr. Lightweight Female World Champion Ewa Brodnicka (17-0, 2 KO), of Poland, defeated Janeth Pérez (24-4-2, 6 KO), of México, via majority decision at the Jelenia Gora Coliseum. Scorecards: 97-93, 95-95 & 96-94. Promoter: Tymex Boxing Promotion. TV: Poland PolSat Sport HD

The 10-round fight was a tight, nervy affair with the aggressive Mexican pushing forward most of the night but getting picked off by the more technical Pole with her jab. Brodnicka was taller than her opponent and used sharp footwork to keep her distance, forcing Perez to lunge in and expose herself.

The victory takes the unbeaten Pole to 17 wins in 17 fights, and she now must be eyeing up a super-fight against another world champion. She could get into the ring against Hyun Mi Choi of South Korea, who is the WBA Champion, Maiva Hamadouche, the IBF World Champion from France or Finland’s WBC Champion Eva Wahlstrom.

If Brodnicka is feeling very adventurous she could step up in weight class and face off against boxing superstar Katie Taylor at Lightweight. Taylor, from Ireland, has made a big name for herself in the United States and is set to defend her four titles against Belgian Delfine Persoon at Madison Square Garden on June 1 this year.
