Hammer UD-10 Reis

Munich, Germany

November 5, 2016

Christina Hammer, 159 ½, moves to (20-0, 9 KOs) with a ten-round, unanimous decision over Kali Reis, 158 ¼, by the scores (100-90/ 98-93/ 98-93). With the win, Hammer, Dortmund, Germany, retains the WBO World female middleweight title and secures the WBC World female middleweight strap. Reis, Providence, drops the WBC middleweight title in her first defense winning the prestigious title with a ten-round, split-decision over Maricela Cornejo in New Zealand in April. With the loss, Reis drops to (10-6-1, 4 KOs).

The 26-year-old Hammer has held the WBO middleweight title since October 2016 and briefly held the WBO super-middleweight title. Reis, 30, performs at a higher level than her record might otherwise indicate. She’s faced a who’s who of the welterweight and middleweight divisions, a list that includes Aleksandra Lopes, Tori Nelson,  Mikaela Lauren, Teresa Perozzi, Hanna Gabriels, and has twice entered the ring to face Hammer losing ten-round verdict to the long-time champion in May 2015.

Hammer is one of the pound-for-pound best in women’s boxing, and Reis should prove to be a high-level contender for the foreseeable future.
