Hagar Finer did exactly what was expected of her in Tel Aviv. She retained her WIBF bantamweight crown by undoubtedly defeating Latvian challenger Agnese Boza with a fifth-round technical knockout (the fight was called by the referee). In a fight that started slow, Hagar picked up the pace and began landing punch after punch until her opponent was rendered defenceless.

“I hope the Israeli people will get to know her even more,” her trainer and manager Ra’anan Tal said. “We want to defend the title here in Israel because the refereeing abroad is hostile against us. We need to support boxing. In Israel we have sports besides soccer, and Hagar’s achievements should not be for naught. We need the Israeli people to pump money into the sport.”
