Odelia Ben Ephraim to Face Tijana Draskovic Tomorrow

Odelia "Thunder" Ben Ephraim is scheduled to face Tijana Draskovic tomorrow at Salle Polyvalente des Ramiers in Blagnac, France. This bout is slated to go six two-minute rounds. Ben Ephraim weighed in at 125 pounds while Draskovic came in at 125.5 pounds..

Ben Ephraim (3-2) is a 23 year old resident of Blagnac, France. She fought an eight-rounder less than month ago, a split decision loss to Anaelle Angerville for the French featherweight title. Ben Ephraim's other loss came in her debut, also against Angerville. Odelia is 3-0 against everyone else.

Draskovic, an 18 year old southpaw from Zrenjanin, Serbia, has an unimpressive 1-5 record. But her five losses came against opponents with a combined record of 28-2-3, so she has been in very tough. She has never been stopped. Draskovic and Ben Ephraim have a common opponent, Angerville, to whom Draskovic also lost. Tijana has experienced far more success as an amateur kickboxer than as a pro boxer.

Draskovic last fought on Sunday, a six round points loss. Though she has been in tough and has never been stopped, the native of Serbia hasn't been too competitive against those formidable foes. She hasn't won a round on a judge's card in three of her losses. The event is slated to air on Fight Nation.
