Kiwitt & Simon Jr. Set To Collide For WBF World Title

(November 15, 2023) – On November 24 at the Deutches Haus in Flensburg, Germany, Freddy Kiwitt and Harry Simon Jr. will collide for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Super Welterweight title.

“Pretty Boy” Kiwitt, 24-3 (14), a Liberian born German, is a former African (ABU) and WBO European champion, besides having won various smaller accolades, but this will be his first crack at a world championship.

The 33-year-old turned pro in 2013 and had his first seven bouts in the United Kingdom, but has since gone back and forth, fighting in both Germany, the U.K. as well as Ghana and Denmark. Now he has settled his career in Germany, where he has won seven straight since 2021.

Namibia´s Simon Jr., 20-1 (14), is the 26-year-old son of former WBO world Middleweight champion Harry Simon. He entered the paid code in 2017, and won the Namibian national Light Welterweight title in 2019. This will also be his first world title fight, and by far the biggest fight of his career.

The intriguing WBF world title fight will headline a show promoted by Kahrlo Rueda, who is staging his fifth card in the north German city, only a few kilometres from the Danish border.
