WAKO PRO event in Marmande (France) 30/04/2016

It is my pleasure I can write report about this great event.

On 30th April, WAKO PRO had two title fights in Marmande in France. T
he Promoter of the event was Mr. Laurent Mudry.

First title was WAKO PRO European title defense in Light contact,  -69 kg. European title holder Andrea Chianese (ITA) defended his title in a very emotional fight. Challenger David Jay from Marmande wanted to have revenge and to take title away from Champion. David started very well in the first round giving his best in the same beginning of the fight.  But, Andrea was well prepared and after 5 rounds of hard and very explosive fight he won on points by split decision.

Judges:

PIERO SICURELLA (BEL) 49x49 advantage to David Jay
BRATINA SILVIA (ITA) 47x49 for Andrea Chianese
KRISTINA PILKO (HRV) 48x49 for Andrea Chianese

Referee: CHARLIE MUNOZ (FRA)

Second title fight was the main event of the evening and it was World title fight in Full contact,  -48 kg. Title was vacant.

Amadine Mudry from Marmande got chance as the WAKO PRO European champion to fight this title. Her opponent was Yulia Staforkina from Russia, ranked as No. 2 on WAKO PRO ranking in this weight class. Yulia Staforkina is current WAKO World amateur Champion in Full contact, 48 kg. She took this title on World Championship held in Dublin last year. Opening round was little bit slow with respect shown from both sides. From the second round, Yulia was very dominant in her boxing and she landed many effective shots. As the rounds were going forward she was better and better. Amandine couldn’t take the pressure and in the 5th round after a serious of big shots her coach decided to stop this fight by throwing the towel. That was the end of Amandine’s dream to become a WAKO PRO World Champion. That night Yulia was simply better and she deserved belt.

New WAKO PRO World Champion in Full contact,  -48 kg is Yulia Staforkina (RUS)
