 Wahlstrom Becomes First World Champ  From Finland


 

Eva Wahlstrom crowned herself the new WBC Female World Superfeatherweight Champion Saturday night at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland. And not only that: The 34-year-old is also the first ever Finnish boxing World Champion in history!

Wahlstrom clearly dominated Natalia Vanesa del Valle Aguirre (Argentina) in a fight for the vacant title and earned a well deserved unanimous decision. Judge Freddy Rafn (Denmark) scored the bout 100-90, Jürgen Langos (Germany) saw it 99-91 while Ventsislav Nikolov (Bulgaria) had it 97-93.

5,000 fans at the Hartwall Arena enthusiastically celebrated the new champ who could be on a collision course with former titlist Diana Prazak from Australia.
