Bopp fights very average opposition under her protected umbrella in A'tina...last time she left she was torn up by Jesica Chavez...another point, is rarely foreign WBO officials brought in, almost always all 4 from her homeland...what about it Paco???

Susi Kentikian vs Jesica Bopp can be a very good action fight,the german will win IMO.
