An absolutely world class fight over 10 rounds. The reigning World Champion Elina Tissen delivered a spectacular fight against the Interim World Champion Nina Meinke.
Nina got better into the fight and started very strong.
But Elina dominated more and more this fight.
After several hard left-hooks of world champion Tissen, a bad cut on Meinke’s right eye opened, which seemed to affect her in addition.
In the following rounds Nina did not find any more correctly into the fight and had to take some more effective hits from her opponent. Finally Elina Tissen won a ten-round split decision over Nina Meinke
The judges decided in favor of the defending champion with 99-91, 97-93 and 94-96.
