#1: Cecilia Braekhus “First Lady of Boxing”

Bergen, Norway
23-0, 7 KOs
Titles: WBA, WBC, WBO welterweight
Age: 32
Last fight: Win TKO-9 Oxandia Castillo
Next fight: TBA
Style: Boxer-puncher
Best wins: Anne Sophie Mathis, Mia St. John
* She has already moved into the conversation on any all-time pound-for-pound list. Tori Nelson appears to be the #1 challenger at welterweight. Several interesting challenges exist at light-welterweight and there is always middleweight Christina Hammer.
#2 Erica Anabella Farias “La Pantera”
Virreyes, Buenos Aires, Argentina
18-0, 9 KOs
Titles: WBC lightweight
Age: 29
Last fight: Win UD-10 Mary McGee
Next fight: TBA
Style: Stalker, slugger
Best wins:  Ann Saccurato, Melissa Hernandez
* A Persoon fight appears unlikely. Will “La Pantera” move to light-welterweight?
#3 Christina Hammer
Dortmund, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany by way of Novodolinka, Kazakhstan
15-0, 7 KOs
Titles: WBF, WBO middleweight and super-middleweight
Age: 23
Last fight: Win UD-10 Mikaela Lauren
Next fight: 12-06-13 TBA
Style: Boxer
Best win: Teresa Perozzi
* Owns legitimate world titles at both middleweight and super-middleweight. Perhaps her most legitimate challenger, Tori Nelson, moved down to welterweight in pursuit of Braekhus. What’s next?
#4 Yesica Yolanda Bopp “Tuti”
Wilde, Buenos Aires, Argentina
25-1, 11 KOs
Titles: WBA, WBO light-flyweight
Age: 29
Last fight: Win UD-10 Anastasia Toktaulova
Next fight: 12-07-13 TBA
Style: Ambush fighter
Best wins: Daniela Romina Bermudez, Carina Moreno, and Jessica Chavez
* A very active champion and will be in action against the ever-tough TBA in December.
#5 Anne Sophie Mathis
Dombasle-sur-Meurthe, Meurthe-et-Moselle, France
27-3, 23 KOs
Titles: WBF light-middleweight
Age: 36
Last fight: Win TKO-5 Yajaira Hernandez
Next fight: TBA
Style: Stalker, slugger
Best wins: Holly Holm, Myriam Lamare, and Jane Couch
* Not much around at junior-middle for perhaps the greatest puncher ever in women’s boxing.
