Ema Kozin is still the World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Middleweight Champion, after scoring what is arguably her most significant win to date, defeating former IBF World titlist Chris Namus at the CPI Box Club in Donauwoerth, Germany on Saturday night, October 17.

Also the WBF World Champion at Super Middleweight, Kozin retained the Middleweight crown for the third time, scoring a unanimous decision over Uruguay´s Namus (33), who at times gave the 21-year old southpaw from Slovenia plenty to think about.

Judges Diana Drews-Milani and Maurizio Rinaudo both scored the fight 97-93, while judge Dominic Kuhaupt had it slightly wider at 98-92, all for Kozin who improved her professional record to 20-0-1 (10). Namus drops to 25-6 (8).

In the co-featured bout of the evening, previously undefeated local girl Jessica Schadko was upset by classy 20-year-old Irish underdog Katelynn Phelan in their fight for the vacant WBF Womens World Welterweight title.

Phelann was a step ahead of Schadko from the start, and was leading on the cards by scores of 50-45, 49-46 and 49-46 when Schadko was retired before the start of round six, giving the visitor a technical knockout victory.

The new WBF World Champion improved her professional ledger to 4-0 (1), and Schadko, still only nineteen and with plenty of time to rebound, sees her record dip to 8-1 (2).

A third WBF championship fight on the card saw another underdog upset the apple-cart, as Jan Marsalek from the Czech Republic came from behind to wipe out previously unbeaten Fatih Duebues to win the vacant International Light Welterweight title.

Marsalek (33), fighting for and winning his first pro title, viciously knocked out Duebues cold with a clean left hook at 0:33 of round nine, taking his record to 8-2 (7). Duebues (26) falls to 4-1 (4).

The show, broadcast live world-wide on Youtube, was promoted by CPI Promotions.
