Kotaskova and Giger Victorious In WBF Title Fights

(December 2, 2023) – World Boxing Federation (WBF) championship fights took place in Vienna, Austria and Glattbrug, Switzerland on Saturday night, December 2.

In Vienna WBF Womens Intercontinental Welterweight champion Michaela Kotaskova defended her title against by far her most accomplished opponent to date in former WBO world Lightweight champion Maria Elena Maderna from Argentina.

The Austria-based Czech was impressive, as she stopped Maderna in the second round of one of the featured bouts of Bounce Fight Night.

Making her first defense of the title she won last April, Kotaskova improved her professional record to 5-0-2 (2). Maderna drops to 18-16-3 (2).

In Glattbrug, Switzerland, undefeated local man Rico Giger captured the vacant WBF Eurasia Light Heavyweight title in the main event of a show at the Restaurant Glatthoff.

Giger (34), fighting for his first title, stopped Germany-based Pakistani Yasir Ahmed Malik in four rounds, taking his record to 7-0 (5).

29-year-old Malik, who had taken part in two championship fights previously, falls to 9-3 (7).
