On May 8 in Warendorf, Germany, former three-division world champion Elina Tissen will attempt to capture the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Featherweight title when she square off with Kenyan Everline Odero.

local star “Elin The Machine”, 23-2 (6), is a former multiple world title-holder at Super Bantamweight, Featherweight and Super Featherweight, and has won fifteen of sixteen previous world championship fights, spanning ten years.

34-year-old Russian-born Tissen turned pro in 2006, and has not lost a fight since 2008. She will be a healthy favorite going into her clash with Odero, who is experienced and has faced some of the best in the world but come up short.

Odero, 10-9-2 (2), has one previous world title attempt on her record, losing a decision to another German, Jennifer Retzke, back in 2016. She has never been stopped, and in her last five outings only 37-1 Belgian Delfine Persoon has beaten her.

The Tissen vs. Odero WBF World Featherweight title fight will be promoted by Elin Boxing, with no spectators allowed due to Covid-19 restrictions.
