Yuh Defeats Campana To Retain WBF Intercontinental Title
Former two-division world champion Hee-Jung Yuh made a successful second defense of the World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens Intercontinental Super Flyweight title on Saturday, August 31, in her home-town of Gimhae, South Korea.
Using her excellent boxing skills, Yuh fended off the challenge of game challenger Loetizia Campana, from France but fighting out of Thailand, scoring a clear unanimous decision after ten fast-paced and entertaining rounds.
Campana, who had won three straight in Bangkok coming into this bout, tried to unsettle the more experienced champion, but Yuh had an answer for everything and appeared to be in control of the fight from start to finish.
Judges Joong-Suk Kwon, Yeong Jae Yu and Hoo Sik Choi scored the fight 98-93, 100-94 and 98-94 respectively.
39-year-old Hee-Jung Yuh, who held IFBA and WIBF world titles at Super Flyweight and Bantamweight between 2012 and 2014, takes her impressive professional record to 22-3 (11). Loetizia Campana drops to 8-6 (3).
