Undefeated German Raja Amasheh is set for her first championship bout, when she squares off with former world title-challenger Fjleis Djendji from Serbia for the vacant World Boxing Federation Intercontinental Flyweight title on Saturday (October 27) in Sankt Ingbert, Germany.  

Having gone 13-0-1 (3) against nondescript opposition in the pro ranks, Amasheh will undoubtedly be in with her sternest test in Djendji, who is 14-14-1 (8) against some of the best boxers in the world. Amasheh has yet to go more than six rounds, while Djendji has been eight rounds three times, and ten rounds twice.

Originally from Jordan, Amasheh immigrated to Germany with her family in 1982, only three months old. Growing up, she first excelled in Kickboxing, winning a world championship in 2008 before switching permanently to regular boxing.

In the amateurs she was a finalist in the 2007 and 2008 German national championships, and she turned pro in November 2008 with a draw against current WIBF World Champion Oezlem Sahin, who was already 6-0 at the time.  Since then she has won all her fights in impressive style, and is now ready for her first title-shot.

Also turning pro in 2008, Fleis Djendji got off to a so-so start to her paid career, compiling a modest 4-4 record that year, although against very good opposition. Her career in general has been very much up and down, losing as much as she wins, but always tough and able to compete with the world’s elite.

In 2011, Djendji came up short in a challenge for the WBO Super Flyweight World title against Carolina Raquel Duer in Argentina, and she is aware that a victory over Amasheh could bring her close to a new crack at a world championship.

A victory for Amasheh could determine if she is ready for the next step, so the battle lines have been drawn for a true crossroads fight!  

The Raja Amasheh vs. Fleis Djendji WBF Intercontinental Flyweight title fight in Sankt Ingbert will be promoted by Oliver Heib and his Dog Event Boxing.
