Tibor Feja and his Feja Promotion is staging a major WBF doubleheader on
Saturday May 12 in Budapest, Hungary, featuring an interesting female
world title defense, and two local boxers clashing for the vacant
Intercontinental Super Middleweight strap.

World Boxing Federation women’s World Bantamweight Champion Renata
Szebeledi, 15-9 (8), is making the first defense of her title against
tough Romanian Eva Marcu, 7-3 (2), in a rematch.

The two fought last June, with Szebeledi coming out on top after a rough
encounter, and now Marcu will get her chance at redemption and her first
world championship.

In her first bout after defeating Marcu last year, Szebeledi travelled to
Germany to capture the WBF World title with an inspired performance
against local favorite Pia Mazelanik. Since then she has racked up three
non-title victories, before dropping a close decision in an IBF Super
Flyweight challenge against Simona Galassi in Italy.   Now back at her
natural weight, Szebeledi is looking forward to defending her world
championship in front of her local fans, and with Marcu coming off a fresh
victory last month she is sure to be in for another hard challenge.

In the second WBF title fight of the night, Budapest-rivals Attila Baran,
9-2 (4), and Janos Olah, 10-8-1 (3), will duke it out for the vacant
Intercontinental Super Middleweight championship. Both have mixed in minor
championship territory in their careers, but Baran (19) has youth on his
side, while Olah (30) is the more experienced and tested.

It shapes up to be an interesting night of championship boxing in Budapest
on May 12, and while Szebeledi and Baran must be considered slight
favorites, it is bound to be competitive action in both fights.
