Christina Hammer


Christina Hammer (16-0, 8 KOs) defends her WBF & WBO middleweight titles this weekend against former welterweight title challenger Jessica “Sugar J” Balogun (23-2, 11 KOs) at GETEC Arena, Magdeburg, Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany. The 25-year-old Balogun showed well in losing a unanimous decision against long-time welterweight champion Cecilia Braekhus in June 2012. Since, she has only entered the ring once, earning a fifth-round knockout of Daniela David in November 2013. Balogun brings to the title fight excellent hand & foot speed and a near lethal right hand that has stopped nearly half of her opponents. Though a welterweight, she is the most serious challenge to Hammer’s supremacy at middleweight since Hammer faced down a challenge from Maria Lindberg nearly three years ago.
