Boxing Federation Women’s World Middleweight Champion Christina Hammer
(12-0, 7 KOs) is all set for her fourth title defense on September 7 at
the RWE Rhein-Ruhr Sporthalle in Muelheim, Germany when she takes on
Dominican challenger Yahaira Hernandez.
of the youngest world champions in the game, 22-year-old Hammer won the
WBF World title in February 2011 against Hungarian Diana Kiss, and has
since impressively defended her crown by defeating Sweden’s Super
Welterweight World Champion Maria Lindberg, American Vashon Living and
South African Champion Julie Tshabalala.
September 7 she will be looking to put a stamp on her dominance of the
middleweight division, where she is a clear number one in the BoxRec
computerized world rankings, in front of 4000 spectators, less than 50
kilometers from her hometown Dortmund:
am looking forward to the fight. A lot of my fans in this region are
from Muelheim, and I want to show them live, in the arena, that I am the
absolute number one in women’s boxing”, said an excited Hammer before
what will be the closest she has been to fighting at home since becoming
Yahaira Hernandez (11-3, 5 KOs) will be no easy task though, and the
Santo Domingo-boxer is hoping to make it third-time-lucky in Germany. In
2007 she lost world title-challenges to Natascha Ragosina at Super
Middleweight in Magdeburg, and at Super Welterweight to Karolina Lukasik
her most recent outing Hernandez beat fellow Dominican Mery Rancier
last December, and she has had plenty of time to prepare for the fight
against Hammer. She is confident that Middleweight is where she is most
effective, and that she will be able to go home a world champion this
“Ragosina was too big for me at Super Middleweight, and I am too big to
make Super Welterweight comfortably. Middleweight is right in between,
and I will be at my very best, at my strongest and most dangerous in
this weight class. Hammer better be ready, because she will have her
hands full. I am coming to win”.
