Boxing heads back to the Motor City as DAZN hosts an undisputed women’s super-featherweight title fight from the Masonic Temple in Detroit, MI. The champion Alycia Baumgardner (14-1, 7 KOs) defends her titles against Christina Linardatou (14-2, 6 KOs). This is a rematch from their 2018 fight, where Linardatou handed Baumgardner her first and only loss by way of a split decision. That was then, and this is now. Baumgardner is the undisputed champion at 130 lbs, while Linardatou is looking to score another victory against a familiar foe.
Baumgardner is fresh off the split decision victory over Mikaela Mayer (18-1, 5 KOs) in October as the two continue to go back and forth every chance they get as the bitter rivalry continues. The champion Baumgardner was back in the ring four months later and scored a unanimous decision victory over Elhem Mekhaled (16-2, 3 KOs). Now Baumgardner looks to avenge her only loss while heading towards a potential fight with the undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor (22-1, 6 KOs) in the future or a showdown with Amanda Serrano (44-2-1, 30 KOs).
The 35-year-old Linardatou is on a two-fight win streak since losing to Taylor in 2019. She will have to try and make it two in a row against Baumgardner, although the odds are certainly against her with the fight being in Detroit. Can Linardatou secure the victory and position herself for another significant fight later this year?
