Amira Hamzaoui fights Isabel Milan on April 23 in France
World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Flyweight Champion Amira Hamzaoui will make her second title defense on Saturday April 23 at the Hall des Sports Pierre Gaspard in her hometown of Epernay, France, when she takes on Mexican Isabel “La Estrella” Milan.
Hamzaoui, 12-1 (5), won the WBF World title in October 2014 by beating then undefeated champion Raja Amasheh in Germany, and made her first defense last April in Epernay with a unanimous decision over resilient Hungarian challenger Alexandra Vlajk.
After a thorough training camp where she has prepared by sparring the likes of WBF Womens World Light Flyweight champion Anne Sophie Da Costa, reigning French champion Sandy Coget and undefeated prospect Justine Lallemand, Hamzaoui is now ready for a tough challenge from Milan.
Isabel Millan, 15-2-1 (8), is a pro since 2011, and will be fighting outside of her native Mexico for the first time in what will also be her first world championship bout. Last August she captured the WBF International Flyweight title, and has since stayed busy with two non-title fight victories, most recently in February, while waiting for her big chance.
The boxers have each expressed how hungry they are to put on a great performance and to leave no doubt about the result, so if they both manage to deliver on their promises inside the ring it is bound to be a fast-paced and action-packed affair.
Promoted by Jerome Vilmain and the Boxing Club d´Espernay, the Hamzaoui vs. Millan WBF Womens World Flyweight title fight is the main event of a highly anticipated event, and fans are expected to turn up in large numbers to support the local heroine.
