(SEPT 19) Slovenian Ema
Kozin will contest the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF)
Womens World Middleweight title on Saturday October 14 at Hala
Tivoli in Ljubljana, taking on former three-time world
title-challenger Florence Muthoni from Kenya.
Still only eighteen years old, undefeated Kozin, 10-0 (6), can
become the youngest WBF World Champion in history if victorious,
and proved this past weekend (September 16) that she is ready
for the championship level by scoring a ten-round unanimous
decision over Georgian Elene Sikmashvili in Germany.
32-year-old Florence Muthoni, 11-5-2 (5), will be trying to make
it fourth-time-lucky in world championship fights, after a draw
and a narrow split decision loss in IBO challenges against
Jennifer Retzke (14-1-1), and a unanimous decision defeat to
Svetlana Kulakova (8-0) in a WBA tilt.
This is a genuinely facinating clash between youth and
experience, and while Kozin must be considered a healthy
favourite fighting on home turf, Muthoni can in no way be
underestimated. It will be her sixth bout outside Kenya, so she
is not new to fighting away from home.
The Kozin vs. Muthoni WBF World title fight will be one of the
main attractions of CFC 4, a massive combat sports event
featuring professional boxing, MMA and K1. Promoted by Rudolf
Pavlin, the show will be broadcast live on Pay-Per-View via
