ARMENIAN 'STAR' IN WOMEN'S BOXING IN GERMANY
The professional boxing match between Suzy Kentikian and Lucy Khornikova in
Hamburg ended on the 37th second. A mighty punch of the Armenian boxer
knocked Khornikova out bringing her the 3d victory on professional ring.
Most of the spectators were displeased with such a swift final. But not
Suzy's fans. Boxers of Hamburg's "Agon" boxing club arrived with posters
reading "Suzy - Golden Girl". The 17-year-old Armenian boxer of only 1.55 cm
of height is called "a million dollar kid" in Hamburg.
Together with her family Suzy left Armenia for Hamburg in 1996. They lived
in a deportees' camp for a few years. Despite persistent threats of being
deported from Germany, they are still there.
Suzy entered a boxing school with her brother 5 years ago. A series of
victories won her the title of master and she took up professional boxing.
Today, Suzy's family has no problems with German authorities. Executive
director of the boxing club, Peter Hanbats, thinks that Suzy is the most
perspective boxer among Germany's women boxers.
