Women’s professional boxing champion Hyunmi Choi succeeded in defending her ninth with a KO victory.
◀ Report ▶
Choi Hyun-mi, a 36-year-old Brazilian veteran, faced Simone da Silva.
From the start, the two players exchanged fists fiercely.
Contrary to the expectation that it would be one-sided, it progressed in the form of a brawl until the middle of the game.
Hyun-mi Choi’s strategy, which continued to target the opponent’s abdomen, worked well.
In the ninth inning, he stole the first down…and after that, after driving his opponent crazy, he finally won by TKO.

“I said, ‘Let’s see a match in 5 rounds’, but this friend was too strong. Still, it seems like he overcame it well until the end.”
Since becoming the world’s youngest champion at the age of 18 in 2008, Hyunmi Choi, who has been undefeated with 19 wins and 1 draw, succeeded in her 7th defense in the featherweight division and 9th defense in the super featherweight division for a whopping 13 years.
He also held the title of longest-serving world champion.
