Netisri Still WBF World Super Bantamweight Champion

(October 4, 2023) – Undefeated Germany-based Thai Phannarai Netisri successfully defended the World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Super Bantamweight title on Tuesday, October 3, at the Grosse Freiheit in Hamburg.

Netisri, who, except for two bouts in the Czech Republic, has boxed exclusively in Germany since turning pro in 2019, scored a wide unanimous decision over American Danielle Bennett.

The defending champion found good solutions to an otherwise tricky assignment against a much taller, southpaw opponent, and was simply the better, sharper and more active boxer.

After ten rounds of boxing, judges Irene Kostenko, Dominic Kuhaupt and Joerg Ilinseer all scored the fight identically: 98-92.

Only twenty-three years old, Netisri improved her professional record to 14-0 (6), while NABF titlist Bennett lost her second world championship-challenge and drops to 7-2 (1) after winning her previous five fights.

The fight was the main event of a show promoted by Boxen im Norden.
