After the fight, Micah expressed his gratitude, through his Twitter account, to all those who'd supported him.

In March of last year, Duke Micah won the WBC international bantamweight title, knocking out Mexico's Jonathan Aguilar in the eighth round.

World Boxing Council female middleweight champion, Christina Hammer (22-0, 10 KOs) fights tough former world champion Tori Nelson (17-1-3, 2 KOs) on June 22 in Detroit, Michigan.

Hammer comes from defending her crown, last November, knocking out Gifty Amanua Ankrah from Ghana.

While Tori Nelson lost against the super middleweight champion of the WBC, superstar Claressa Shields.

Hammer has dominated the women's middleweight division since 2010. The 27-year-old boxer commented that the training camp she held in the mountains was amazing and helped her a lot to improve.
