Former European champion Wahlstrom (22-1-1, 3 KOs), fighting out of Finland, captured her WBC female World super featherweight title in 2015, winning a 10-round decision over Natalia Vanesa del Valle Aguirre, followed with four successful title defenses, all by way of 10-round decisions, against Dahiana Santana (35-7), Anahi Esther Sanchez (14-0), Mayra Alejandra Gomez (18-5) and Melissa St. Vil (10-2-4).
