Phannarai Netisri is still the World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Super Bantamweight champion after successfully retaining her title on Wednesday night, May 1, in Hamburg, Germany.

Making her third defense of the title she won almost exactly two years ago, the Germany-based Thai scored a unanimous decision over South American champion Maria Magdalena Rivera from Argentina.

After ten rounds of boxing, judges Janine Schilling and Irene Kostenko both scored it 97-93, while judge Dominic Kuhaupt had it slightly wider at 98-92.

Despite the relatively wide scores, it was a competitive fight and Rivera had spells of succes throughout where she gave the champion all she could handle.

Still only twenty-three years old, Netisri is now 15-0 (6) in a pro career she began in 2019. Rivera (43) travels back to Buenos Aires at 13-6-3 (3).

The fight was the main event of a show at the Grosse Freiheit, promoted by Boxen im Norden.
