On Saturday, June 4th at the Sporthal Schiervelde in Roeselare, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium, WBC Lightweight Champion, Delfine Persoon (35-1, 16 KOs) puts her belt on the line opposite UBF International Champion, Christina Linardatou (8-0, 5 KOs).
Person defended her title twice in 2015, a Unanimous Decision win against Maiva Hamadouche in November and a 9th Round TKO victory over Nicole Boss in April. She also accumulated UD win over Jane Kavulani in September and TKO8 over Florence Muthoni in February. Persoon is unbeaten in her last 26 matches and has included multiple championships.
“Black Mamba” Linardatou is young in the sport, having only been active for only two years, compared to Persoon’s seven year career. She attained her UBF strap in November after a close points win against previously undefeated Sam Smith. In March, she stopped unbeaten Lela Terashvili with a 3rd Round KO.
Experience meets prospect status come June 4th.
