Comments Off on Tenge Defends WBF World Title Against Szabados

If the action in the ring lives up to the “Queens of War” billing which has been attached to the event, fans are in for a treat when World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Super Welterweight champion Noni Tenge defends her title against Hungary´s Szilvia Szabados on Friday March 18.  Tenge, who won the WBF world title last December with a unanimous decision over compatriot Julie Tshabalala, will clash with Szabados at the Durban International Convention Centre in South Africa, on a show promoted by Mileham & Malinga.

As one of the most accomplished female boxers in the sport, Tenge has compiled an impressive 15-1-1 (10) record and captured WBF, IBF and WBA world titles at Welterweight before moving up to Super Welterweight for the Tshabalala encounter last year.

In 25-year-old Szilvia “Sunset” Szabados, 11-5 (4), she will be facing a tough and experienced competitor in her first title-defense. While the Hungarian has yet to make her big breakthrough, she has repeatedly proven her worth against some of the best at world level.

In 2014 she lost a decision to fellow Hungarian Zita Zatyko for the WBF world Super Middleweight crown, and the following year she came up short, also on points, in a WBC world Super Middleweight title-challenge against undefeated Nikki Adler in Germany.

Coming off a convincing victory in Slovakia this past February, she is now down at her more natural weight, and has traveled to South Africa with the intention of causing a big upset and taking home the WBF world Super Welterweight championship.
