Odelia Ben Ephraim to Defend Title in June

Odelia "Thunder" Ben Ephraim is scheduled to defend her French featherweight title on Friday, June 7 at Patinoire Municipale Jacques Raynaud in Blagnac, France. This is a hometown fight for Ben Ephraim, who trains out of the Blagnac Boxing Club.

The 24 year old has now recovered from an injury that forced her to pull out of a European title fight in January. With a record of 5-2, Ben Ephraim is an accurate volume puncher who throws intelligent and well-placed combinations.

Thunder last fought on November 24 when she captured the vacant French featherweight belt. In that contest, she gave an impressive performance against Lydie Bialic, a former sparring partner, although Odelia was somewhat disappointed with her showing. For this fight, she hopes to incorporate more of the skills she displays in training, such as changing angles and targeting the body to a greater degree.
