Reigning World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens Intercontinental Light Welterweight Champion Oshin Derieuw, 7-0 (4), is set to continue a meteoric rise towards the top, when she fights for the vacant WBF World title on April 14 in her home-town Henin-Beaumont, France.

If successful, she will have won the WBF International, Intercontinental, and captured the world title, within the last year, and she only made her professional debut two years ago. Turning 31 a few weeks after her upcoming fight, she is not wasting any time. 

Her opponent will be Lina Tejada, 11-4 (9), a twenty-five year old from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. After almost seven years as a prize-fighter, this will be Tejada´s second shot at a world championship.

Last January Tejada lost on points to Alicia Melina Kummer in Germany, with no less than four world titles on the line. She is reportedly hell-bent on making sure she makes the most of her second chance at becoming a world champion.

Derieuw has proved in the past that she is a very gifted boxer, and Tejada will likely have an advantage in punching-power with nine of eleven victories coming inside the distance. So it will be interesting to see if technique or power prevails on April 14.
