WBO #2 rated super welterweight Lukas Konecny (39-3, 19 KOs) scored a close majority decision to dethrone reigning EBU EU champion Jimmy Colas (26-5, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at the Sportarena Großziethen in Berlin-Schönefeld, Germany. It was a competitive fight all the way with Konecny just slightly busier. Scores were 114-114, 116-112, 115-113. With the win, Konecny stays in the running for a rematch against WBO champion Sergiy Dzinziruk, while Colas quickly returns on April 23 to continue in the Acaries Brothers’ “Le Grand Tournoi” jr middleweight competition in Paris.
WIBF/GBU/WBC female super middleweight champion Natascha Ragosina (20-0, 12 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over the overmatched and aptly named challenger Iva “The Terrible” Weston (12-5, 1 KO). As usual, Rasosina towered over her opponent and peppered her with punches from the outside. Weston, who had fought most of her career at welterweight or lower, finally went to the deck in the sixth round and referee Daniel Van de Wiele waved it off during Ragosina’s followup attack. Time 1:19. It was Ragosina’s eleventh defense since winning the WIBF belt in 2005.
Reigning WIBF female lightweight champion and local favorite Ramona Kühne (13-0, 3 KOs) moved down to super featherweight to claim the vacant WIBF belt via ten round unanimous decision against Judy Waguthii (7-4-1, 0 KOs). Waguthii, who previously had never defeated a fighter with a winning record nor scored a knockout, shocked everyone in the house when she dropped Kühne in round one with a straight right. Kühne, however, got it together and did enough to win on points. Scores were 96-93, 98-91, 96-93. Kühne must now decide whether she wants to keep the WIBF 130lb or 135lb belt. The card was promoted by SES Boxing.
