Odelia Ben Ephraim to Fight Anaelle Angerville

Featherweight Odelia "Thunder" Ben Ephraim is scheduled to face Anaelle Angerville on February 4 at Gymnase les iris in Loemont, France on the outskirts of Bordeaux. This is a rematch of an April 2021 fight.

"Thunder" Ben Ephraim is a 23 year old from Toulouse, France. She won Israel amateur titles in 2018 in the featherweight division and 2019 as a lightweight. She turned pro in 2021 and dropped a points decision to Angerville in her debut. Since then, Odelia has won three fights including a decision victory last June over Karla Merida, who is currently 4-1-1.

Angerville (4-1-1) is a 33 year old from Vaulx-en-Velin, France. After winning her debut against Ben Ephraim in a close fight, she drew with her next opponent and then lost a bid for the French junior lightweight belt. Angerville came back with a win over 5-0 Amy Naert this past April. In her last fight, Angerville beat Eva Cantos a month ago.

Expect this fight to go the full eight-round distance. Both fighters have gone the distance in all of their pro bouts thus far.
