Gerula loses to Wallberg for WBC super featherweight title

  • Print

Olivia "The Predator" Gerula failed to win back the WBC women’s super featherweight title on Saturday losing by unanimous decision to Frida "Golden Girl" Wallberg in a 10-round bout in Karlstad, Sweden.

Wallberg had won the title last November beating Gerula in an eight-round fight which left Gerula and many in the boxing community believing the judges had scored the fight incorrectly.

On Saturday as Gerula lost 99-91, 98-92 and 98-92 and was gracious in defeat.

"I didn’t get the job done tonight," Gerula said in an email to the Free Press. " Frida was the better fighter and this time around, she deserved the win."

Gerula’s record is now 13-12-2 (3 KO) while Wallberg remains undefeated (10-0, 2 KO)
