Hammer Backs Klara Svensson To Defeat Mikaela Lauren

Christina Hammer believes Klara Svensson (16-1, 5 KOs) will defeat Mikaela Laurén (27-3, 12 KOs) when the Swedish rivals meet for the interim WBC Female World Welterweight title on September 10 at the Hovet in Stockholm.
 
The WBO World Female Middleweight Champion, who fought and beat Laurén in a 2013 World title fight in Dresden, has been helping Svensson prepare for the blockbuster clash with a series of sparring sessions at her Dortmund gym.
 
Having been impressed with what she has seen from the ‘Swedish Princess’, the undefeated fighter is predicting another loss for her former foe Laurén.

‘’I think Klara is the clear winner,’’ said Hammer. ‘’She is the stronger, more intelligent fighter and she can use the ring well. Mikaela is a good fighter but she is not on the same level as Klara. It will be a good match for female boxing but I can only see one winner.’’
 
The 26 year-old, who was kissed by Laurén at the weigh-in for their World title bout, believes the Stockholm-fighter’s antics outside the ring do not endear her to the public, making Svensson the fan-favourite for their domestic showdown.
 
‘’Mikaela craves attention and will do anything to get it,’’ she says. ‘’She talks a lot of bullshit and is a little bit trashy, but that’s her style. Klara is the smarter one and I think she is better for the public and that’s why the fans want her to win.’’
 
Hammer has revealed she will be ringside supporting the Malmo-boxer as the she looks to claim the WBC’s interim World title and land a shot at female pound-for-pound number one Cecilia Brækhus.
 
‘’That would be an interesting fight,’’ said the German boxer. ‘’The old generation versus the new, but first Cecilia must beat Anne Sophie Mathis.’’
 
Despite her high praise for Svensson, Hammer admits she would be willing to share the ring with the 28 year-old one day.
 
‘’Of course, why not,’’ she says. ‘’I love boxing and I’m willing to fight anyone.’’
