Austria to Host 4 WBF Title Fights Next Month
The Speedfit Sporthalle in Vienna will host four World Boxing Federation (WBF) title fights on December 7th. All four of the fights will see local fighters take on tough foreign opponents.At the start of the night fans will be able to watch WBF Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Gogi “Lionheart” Knezevic defend his title against Georgian challenger Robinson Omsarashvili. Knezevic won the title last May when he defeated Jozsef Matolcsi and this match will be his first title defence. If he retains the title he will be one step closer to taking a shot at the WBF World Title.
The undefeated Intercontinental Light Heavyweight Champion Timy Shala will also be making his first title defence when he faces German Mounir Toumi who has won his last five matches, most recently against former EU Champion Tony Averlant.
Laszlo Toth is facing Giorgi Ungiadze in a battle for the WBF International Welterweight title; it is Toth’s first title fight in the pro ranks while it is Ungiadze’s seventh championship fight since he turned pro in 2005.
The final fight of the night will be between two former world title challengers, Eva Voraberger and Fleis Djendji. The winner will claim the currently vacant Women’s Intercontinental Flyweight title.
