At last weekends show at the Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta, GA, where Mike Ruiz won the WBF Intercontinental Super Welterweight title by stopping Paul Delgado, co-promoter Lisa Hudson-Webb and WBF Supervisor Alan Santana presented an honorary “Georgia Fighter Of The Decade” Award to former World Champion Paul Williams.

Williams was paralyzed from the waist down in a motorcycle accident earlier this year, but looked to be in good spirits at ringside. He has wowed that he will walk again and maybe even return to the ring.

WBF Women’s World Middleweight Champion Christina Hammer has recently received her certificate of having passed her Abitur (German university entrance qualification) and now considers studying sports science.

The unbeaten (12-0) 21-year-old, who has already made three defences of her title, will nevertheless continue in the punching business.

“I’m the number one in the world and want to keep on proving it as long as possible. I’m looking forward to many attractive fights,” Hammer said.

After being released from prison for good behaviour, WBF Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion Amir Mansour wants to return to the ring as soon as possible.

The 39-year-old has little time to waste to build on his 16-0 (12 KO’s) record and said “I want to thank my family, friends and fans for standing at my side during these hard times.”

Mansour was jailed last December for failing to fulfil the conditions of his probation, but the WBF chose to support him and not vacate his title.
