Heavyweights Francesco Pianeta and Francois Botha, along with female middleweight champion Christina Hammer and her challenger Yahaira Hernandez thrilled local fight fans as they showed their skill during a public workout at the “Alpincenter” in Bottrop, Germany, a famous indoor skiing arena in the middle of the Ruhr region. This was the first time Hernandez, from the Dominican Republic, has ever been in the snow. Among those on hand was German heavyweight icon Axel Schulz in support of Pianeta and visiting his “old friend” Botha. The fights take place Friday at the RWE Halle in Mülheim.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
