Voraberger and Arrazola Score Upsets

Vienna, Austria:

On October 22, 2016, Eva “The Golden Baby” Voraberger, 114 ½, Vienna, won the vacant IBO World female super-flyweight title, the vacant WIBF World super-flyweight title, and the vacant Global Boxing Union (GBU) World super-flyweight title with a ten-round, unanimous decision over Eileen Olszewski, 112 ½, New York, by the scores (98-92/100-90/99-91).

With the win, Voraberger improves to (21-5, 10 KOs) whereas the 48-year-old Olszewski drops to (10-7-3, 1 KO).

Eva Voraberger, 26, has shown improvement over the past two years defeating world-class battlers Teeraporn Pannimit (TKO-8) and Renata Domsodi (SD-10). Her most recent loss, a ten-round, majority-decision defeat to the pound-for-pound ranked Esmeralda Moreno, in April, is arguably more impressive than her two mentioned victories.

On the undercard, in a quarterfinal bout of the WBC Diamond Belt Flyweight tournament, veteran banger Ana Arrazola, 112 ¼, Tlalnepantla, Mexico, in an upset of sorts, slugged her way to a ten-round unanimous decision victory  (96-94/96-94/97-93) over Raja Amasheh, 111 ½, Karlsruhe, Germany. Arrazola, with the closely-contested victory, adds the WBC Silver flyweight title to the WBC Silver light-flyweight title she secured in January 2016.

Arrazola, 34, improves to (26-11-3, 13 KOs) and Amasheh, also 34, goes back to the drawing board dropping to (19-1-1, 4 KOs).
