Last week we reported that Japanese female fighter Naoko Fujioka (12-0, 6) was in serious talks with WBA female Flyweight champion Susi Kentikian (33-2-0-1, 17). It appears those talks have been finalised and the two have agreed to fight on November 8th in what is certainly a female super fight between two of the best female fighters on the planet.
The fight will take place at the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart, Germany, and will be Fujioka's first bout outside of Japan it will also feature as part of a very strong card headlined by a really important crossroads fight between Felix Sturm and Robert Stieglitz.
Fujioka, the current WBA female Super Flyweight champion, will be going into this bout in the hopes of becoming a 3-weight world champion and if she is successful she would become just the second ever Japanese fighter to win recognised world titles in 3 weights, following Koki Kameda. She would also become the first female fighter to achieve the impressive feat.
For Kentikian, the woman who was once regarded as the queen of European female boxing, this will be the 4th defense her current reign as world champion and follow's a 9th round TKO over South Korean fighter Dan-Bi Kim earlier this year.
Whilst we don't expect this bout to be televised in Japan the odds are German TV will carry this bout and it really does deserve the tag of being a "Super Fight", unlike many female fights.
