Cohen to Fight December 26

Dr. Stefanie Cohen announced that she is scheduled to fight next on December 26 in Switzerland. Ironically, in many Christian countries, December 26 is called Boxing Day.

Fighting at featherweight, Cohen is 1-0-1 with one KO thus far in her pro career. In her first fight, she stopped Haidde Zapa in the third round of their June 4 bout held in the Dominican Republic. Cohen was the aggressor in her debut. On September 18, Stefi fought Marcela Nieto to a majority draw in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Cohen showed much improved footwork and a quick jab in that fight.

A doctor of physical therapy and exercise physiologist, Cohen is a record-breaking powerlifter and a social media influencer who is serious about her new sport. Though she has used social media to build up her business, Hybrid Performance Method, Stefi doesn't want to be included in the new genre of influencer boxing.

"I am an influencer who also boxes," the U.S.-based native of Venezuela said in a recent interview with iFL TV. "I've always been an athlete first."
