Klara Svensson Wikipedia
Svensson was born and raised in Höllviken, south of Malmö. She was regarded as one of the best and most promising young Swedish boxers thanks to her successful amateur career, during which she won a medal in every World Championship event in which she participated. At the 2006 World Championships she won a silver medal, which was followed by bronze at both the 2008 and 2010 events. She also won bronze and silver at the 2006 and 2007 European Championships, respectively.
Svensson is currently signed to Sauerland Promotion, and is trained by former professional boxer Joey Gamache in Copenhagen. She made her professional debut on 11 June 2011, winning a four-round unanimous decision (UD) over Andrea Rotaru, who also debuted. In her sixth fight, on 22 February 2013, Svensson won the vacant WBC Silver super-lightweight title by defeating Floarea Lihet via ten-round UD. Svensson scored six wins in 2013, and on 13 September 2014 would win the WBC interim super-lightweight title in a UD over Marie Riederer. One defence of the title was made, in a UD against Lucia Morelli on 29 November 2014. This subsequently earned Svensson an opportunity to fight for the full WBC female super-lightweight title, held by Erica Farias. Svensson lost the bout by UD, which took place on 2 May 2015, and was also knocked down by Farias in the fifth round.
