Since the World Boxing Federation was originally founded by American Larry Carrier in 1988, many of the sport’s biggest names have won a WBF title, and proudly defended the blue, red and gold belt all over the world.

In the Champions Of The Past Series we take a closer look at some of the boxers who held WBF titles in years gone by, from lesser known champions to world renowned fighters, legends of the sport and current or future Hall of Famers.


Germany´s former World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Featherweight Champion Goda Dailydaite was born in Lithuania on August 19, 1985.

A graduate of the Duisburg-Essen University, she studied Spanish and Sport while competing in the amateurs, where she had more than sixty bouts and won several German championships before turning professional in 2010.

Athleticism is something of a “family-thing”, as Dailydaite´s mother, Alma Ruppel, besides being a successful biochemist, was a top-level Olympic-style Diver who, at forty-eight, won the European Masters.

On June 12, 2010, Dailydaite entered the paid ranks on a small show at the Halle Suden, located in an industrial area of German town Dorsten. Goda fought compatriot and fellow debutant Lisa Schewe, winning by fifth round knockout.

Her second fight didn't come as quickly as she probably would have preferred, as she had to wait six months before recording a unanimous decision over Czech Hana Horakova (1-2).

But the wait between fight one and two was thoroughly made up for in her third bout, April 2, 2011, when Dailydaite won a land-slide ten round decision over Austria´s former world title-challenger Doris Koehler (7-8-1), who was coming off two victories.

That victory proved that Dailydaite was one to look out for, so when she was matched with Adriana Tertilte (2-2) a couple of months later she was a big favorite. But Dailydaite´s fight on June 17, 2011 in Gelsenkirchen, stood out for something else than her third-round victory.

17-year-old Tertilte was the opponent sanctioned to fight Dailydaite, 25 at the time, and she was announced as the person coming to the ring, just as she was announced in the ring. But later it was revealed that she was not really the boxer fighting.

Instead it was discovered by the German boxing commission that Sarah Huebner (0-1) was in the opposite corner, and that major foul play had occurred. It was determined that Dailydaite and her team knew nothing about the scam, so she rightfully kept the victory.

Dailydaite finished 2011 with two more decisive victories, and since she insisted on being moved along quickly, she, and her team, jumped at the chance when a fight with Arleta Krausova (6-1) was made possible, with the vacant WBF World and Interim WIBF World Featherweight titles on the line.

Krausova, from Usti nad Labem in the Czech Republic, had only come up short against one of the best in the game, when she lost a decision to another German in Ramona Keuhne (17-1) for the WBF, WBO and WIBF world titles in April of 2011.

So she was certainly a stern test, and a very worthy co-challenger, when the two squared off on April 20, 2012 in Dortmund. Some would even say that Krausova was the more deserving of the world title-opportunity, but Dailydaite was not about to let the opportunity pass her by.

After ten entertaining and competitive rounds, where Dailydaite was just a little bit busier and more sharp, she was rightfully declared the winner and new WBF (and Interim WIBF) World Featherweight champion by scores of 98-92, 99-92 and 99-91.

At this point it looked as if the sky was the limit for Dailydaite. 26 years old, 7-0 and with two world championship belts on her mantelpiece. Unfortunately it was not to be, and she would only win one more fight before calling it a day.

On September 29, 2012, back in Dortmund, she beat Bosnian former world champion Irma Adler (12-2) in what ended up being for the Interim WIBF Super Featherweight title, when both were not able to make the featherweight limit.

It was an excellent victory, a clear unanimous decision, over a very good and accomplished opponent, and the momentum appeared to be intact for the new budding super star of womens boxing. But then almost a year of inactivity followed.

When Dailydaite returned to the ring, August 24, 2013, she fought undoubtedly the best and most accomplished opponent of her career in Ina Menzer (30-1), who had held WBC, WBO and WIBF world titles, and was 16-1 in world championship fights.

Due to her inactivity, the WBF and WIBF titles had been stripped from Dailydaite, so she didn't enter the ring as champion. While the vacant WIBF world title was on the line, only the Interim WBF World Featherweight crown was up for grabs as Australian Shannon O´Connell now held the full version.

Menzer was just too good for Dailydaite on the night, and floored here twice in the third round. While she beat the count both times, and showed plenty of heart, it was an up-hill battle from that point, and Menzer won a clear unanimous decision (97-92, 100-88, 100-88).

Menzer (32) had announced before the fight that win, lose or draw, this would be her last fight. At 8-1 (2), after only three years as a pro and only just turned 28, Goda Dailydaite decided to follow suit, and also retired from boxing.

Since then she has worked for the city of Dortmund, and stays connected to boxing by training youngsters alongside her own former trainer Thorsten Bruck.
