Two new World Boxing Federation (WBF) world champions were crowned on Saturday night, April 6, at the Hotel InterContinental in Vienna, Austria.

Reigning WBF Womens Intercontinental champion Michaela Kotaskova won the vacant WBF world Welterweight title, stopping Argentinian Erica Juana Gabriela Alvarez in the tenth and final round. Official time of stoppage: 1:14.

It was an impressive result for Kotaskova, from the Czech Republic but based in Vienna, as she became the first boxer to stop Alvarez inside the distance, something several big names has failed to do in the past.

Kataskova improved her professional record to 6-0-2 (3). Alvarez, entering the fight as the current Argentinian and South American champion, drops to 5-8 (0).

In the evenings co-main event, Austria-based German Nicole Wesner lost the WBF world Lightweight title when she was upset by Serbian Nina Pavlovic.

After ten round of boxing, judges Klaus Hagemann, Balcsu Gabris and Bernd Hupfer scored the fight 98-93, 97-92 and 99-90 respectively, all in favour of the underdog.

The new world champion took her misleading record to 9-5-1 (1), while Wesner, WBF world champion since 2014 and coming up short in her eighth defense, falls to 18-2 (8).

The show was promoted by Bounce Fight Night.
