In the early rounds Perozzi dictated the high pace of the match and put Hammer under pressure. The young German was able nonetheless to keep cool and counter attack. The opening rounds were even.

The fifth round saw the turning point of the 10 round bout as Hammer got in a number of clear shots which started to slow Perozzi down and the German began to dominate the fight. However the fighter from Bermuda was dangerous every minute. The fight ended with a unanimous win on points for Christina Hammer – the new WBO champion and the youngest German boxing world champion ever. (Translated from http://www.boxen1.com)
