The longest reigning current World Boxing Federation (WBF) World titlist, Womens Lightweight Champion Nicole Wesner, is dedicating her fifth title-defense, set for July 6 in Vienna against Bosnian Pasa Malagic, to late former WBF Executive Director Olaf Schroeder and recently passed Juergen Lutz from the WIBF.

“Olaf put all his heart into boxing and the people behind it”, says Wesner. “I always loved talking to him about not only boxing, but about many things in the world.”

“Juergen was one of the people who paved the way for female boxing to be where it is now. Both left the earth too early, but left us here to remember them. I am dedicating my fight on July 6 to their memory.”

An Austria-based German, Wesner, 15-0 (7), won the WBF and WIBF World titles in December of 2014, stopping Gina Chamie (11-1) from Hungary in three rounds. She has since made four successful defences, and added the GBU belt to her collection.

In Malagic, 12-5 (3), she will be facing a tough challenger, who has only lost to very good opponents such as current WBO World Champion Ewa Brodnicka, current WBA and WBC World Champion Jelena Mrdjenovich, then unbeaten Zerina Mehmedovic and French contender Prisca Vicot.

The aforementioned Vicot, 10-6 (2) will fight in the evenings co-feature, as she takes on an opponent to be confirmed for the Interim WBF Womens World Light Welterweight title. The undercard will feature both boxing and K1 bouts.
