Stefi Cohen Schedule Update

Dr. Stefanie Cohen seems to have two fights scheduled. On November 21, Cohen is slated to do battle at Pabellon de Esgrima in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Stefi is also scheduled to fight at Kursaal Arena in Berne, Switzerland on December 26.

Cohen is a native of Venezuela who is based in the United States. The 29 year old is 1-0-1 with one KO. Her first fight was also in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. She won by way of third round TKO last June. Her second fight took place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates in September. Stefi showed an improved jab and good footwork on route to a majority draw.

A record-breaking powerlifter, Cohen is an entrepreneur, an author, and earned her doctorate in physical therapy and exercise physiology. She doesn't consider herself part of the influencer boxing fad. She takes boxing seriously, working tirelessly with respected trainer Dr. Pedro Diaz. Diaz helped trained the Cuban boxing team in four Olympics and the Dominican Republic team, in one. He currently coaches many quality professional fighters.

These days few boxers have two fights scheduled, so one or the other might be dropped. However, it could be good for Cohen's development to be in the ring more often than do most fighters in this era. She came late to the game but has shown impressive progress. The best way to become a better fighter is to fight.
