Mathis KOs Hernandez for WBF belt

Anne Sophie Mathis (27-3, 23 KOs) proved that she is still one of the best female boxers in the world, when she stopped Dominican Yahaira Hernandez (14-5, 8 KOs) in round five to win the vacant World Boxing Federation female super welterweight title on Saturday night at the Salle Roger Boileau in Dombasle, France. After two straight losses to Holly Holm, to whom she lost her WBF World Welterweight title, and Cecilia Braekhus, Mathis returned at her new weight with clear determination to show her hometown fans that she is back and on the hunt for a rematch with Braekhus. Mathis ended a good action fight in round five with a massive shot to the liver of Hernandez who turned away in pain. She couldn’t recover and was counted out at 1:59 of the round. The fight was promoted by Mathis long-time trainer and manager René Cordier.
