Susi “Killer Queen” Kentikian


On May 31 in Krefeld, Germany, one of the  best in women’s boxing, Susi “Killer Queen” Kentikian (32-2, 16 KOs) of Hamburg, Germany, will defend the WBA female flyweight title against Dan-Bi Kim (9-2-1, 2 KOs) fighting out of Anseong City, South Korea. It will be the first action for Kentikian since she dismantled Simona Galassi in her second defense of the WBA world title in December 2013. The 23-year-old Kim, who has never scaled above 108 pounds, will try her luck at the 112 pound limit for the first time. Kim measures 4’ 11” two inches shorter than Kentikian. She does boast a 2009 unanimous decision victory over the hard punching Jolene Blackshear winning the IFBA minimumweight title in the process. The 26-year-old Kentikian, who was considered the ‘comeback fighter of the year’ in 2013 by many, is facing a durable but limited opponent in Kim likely resulting in a wide points win. During her career, the “Killer Queen” has faced a who’s who in women’s flyweight boxing winning the WBA title for the first time just two years into her stellar career. During her 14 successful title defenses, she also picked up the WBO and WIBF flyweight belts. 2012 proved to be a tough year for Armenian born Kentikian as she dropped her world titles to Californian flyweights Melissa McMorrow and Carina Moreno. She rebounded in 2013 winning three fights recapturing her most of her prime form.
