Mohammedi to battle Belkacem on 20th April

Dailydaite-Krausova and Mohammedi-Belkacem  Battle For WBF Titles On April
20th

On Friday April 20 in Dortmund, Germanys undefeated Goda Dailydaite, 6-0
(2), takes on Arleta Krausova, 6-1 (2), from the Czech Republic for the
vacant World Boxing Federation Women’s World Featherweight title on a show
promoted by Khalil Boxpromotion.

Born in Lithuania in 1985, Goda Dailydaite is now residing in Essen, not
far from Dortmund. She turned pro in June 2010, and already in her third
fight, in April 2011, she won an Intercontinental title by defeating
Austria’s Doris Koehler by ten round unanimous decision.

Dailydaite has since scored additionally three victories, and is aiming to
take her career to the next level against Krausova. The 31 year old from
Usti will enter her second world title fight, having lost a spirited
challenge of WBF Super Featherweight Champion Ramona Kuehne on points last
year.

In her last outing Krausova won a minor championship by defeating another
German, Pia Mazelanik, this past November. That bout, like the
Kuehne-challenge, also took place in Germany, so fighting for titles
against Germans in Germany is nothing new to Arleta Krausova.

On the same night in Les Pennes-Mirabeau, France, WBF Intercontinental
Light Heavyweight Champion Nadjib Mohammedi will put his title on the line
against Algerian-born Swiss Mohamed Belkacem at the Salle Jean Roure. This
will be the first defense for Mohammedi, who won the title last year at
the same venue against Georgian George Tevdorashvili.

Being a former French and European Union Champion, as well as a former WBO
World title-challenger, Mohammedi, 25-3 (13), is the more accomplished of
the two. But former Swiss Champion Belkacem, 20-4-1 (9), is no stranger to
competing at championship level himself, and a year ago he proved his grit
by losing a competitive decision to current WBF World Champion Doudou
Ngumbu for the African Boxing Union crown.

The winner of the Mohammedi vs. Belkacem WBF Intercontinental Light
Heavyweight title fight, promoted by Robert Safrani and B C Center, could
be in line to challenge the aforementioned Ngumbu for the World
Championship, so a lot is on the line this coming Friday. The loser will
have to get back in line.
