Fresh off of Historic WBO Championship Win, Christina Linardatou to Make First Super Lightweight Defense on June 7 vs. Deanha Hobbs
Christina Linardatou and all of Greece may still be basking in the celebration of the first world boxing championship performance on Greek land, but Team Empire Management and Perseas Promotions are rolling along with more championship action.
Linardatou (11-1, 6 KOs) is now set to make that first championship defense on June 7th against Australian Deanha Hobbs (8-0, 5 KOs), who currently holds the WBO Asia-Pacific Super Featherweight belt. The event is presented by Perseas Empire Promotions and will be hosted at Olympic Hall Galatsi in Athens.
The 31 year old Linardatou became Greece’s queen after crushing formerly unbeaten Kandi Wyatt for the 6th Round TKO less than a month ago.
Hobbs collected the vacant WBO junior belt with a Unanimous Decision win over Baby Nansen in December.
“Black Mamba” and “Medusa” Linardatou has a knack for dealing opponents their first defeats. She has dealt first defeats to UK Prospect Sam Smith, former WBC International Super Featherweight champion Alicia Baumgardner, in addition to Wyatt. Will Hobbs be the next one?
