From what we under-stand female boxing legend Naoko Fujioka (12-0, 6) is seriously considering an off to fight in Germany in November against the insanely popular Susi Kentikian (33-2-0-1, 17), in what would be a WBA female Flyweight title bout.
Fujioka, the current WBA Super Flyweight champion, would be expected to drop a weight for the bout though in all honesty she is a small Super Flyweight and the drop down in weight shouldn't be an issue in the slightest, in fact we suspect she'd be more comfortable at 112lbs.
What should make the bout especially attractive for Fujioka is the fact that a win over Kentikian would actually see her becoming a 3-weight world champion, the first Japanese female to accomplish the feat, and it would also allow her to show off her sensational talents to a European audience.
Of course fighting in Germany does come with risks and many fighters have suggested that it's impossible to win a decision there. We have seen Kentikian lose twice by decision but it still be a risk for Fujioka to consider before taking the offer.
We suspect that the bout will be agreed in the coming days and will be formerly announced very soon for a date in early-to-mid November. If it is agreed then we have a genuine female super fight on our hands, it's not often we can say that!
