Balogun KO-5 David
On 16 November, 2013, in Aachen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, perhaps the #2 welterweight in the world, Jessica “The Hammer” Balogun, 146 ½ , returned to the ring after a 17-month hiatus and scored a fifth round knockout of Daniela David, 142 ½. Balogun (23-2, 11 KOs) last saw action in June, 2012 dropping a unanimous decision to Cecilia Braekhus. In that welterweight title bout, Balogun of Aachen, Germany, performed well winning three rounds on two of the scorecards.
David, Bucharest, Romania, prior to this bout was inactive for three years losing ten of her previous eleven fights. In 2009, David lasted ten rounds losing a unanimous decision to Balogun. With this loss, David drops to (4-22-1, 1 KO) and is nothing more than an opponent.
The 24-year-old Balogun, with some seasoning, may someday develop into a long-reigning champion.
