When Serbian Eva Bajic Halasi fought Mikaela Lauren for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Female World Super Welterweight title in October of 2012, she was still only twenty-eight years old but had already come up short in WBO/WBC and IBF world title-challenges.


A four-time European and World Kickboxing Champion, she entered the fight against Lauren (16-2), in Stockholm, Sweden, with a professional boxing record of 10-5 (9), and gave a good account of herself before also losing her third crack at world honors, by unanimous decision.

But it would not be long before Bajic Halasi was finally also a World Champion as a boxer!

In her very next outing, in March of 2013, she took on Ivana Habazin (10-0) from Croatia, for the vacant IBF World Welterweight title in Berlin, and this time she would not be denied, as she impressively defeated the favorite by clear decision.

That night would prove to be the highlight of her boxing career, as she, for whatever reason, never defended the IBF title. She continued to compete at the highest level thought, and has lost three additional attempts at world titles, to Layla McCarter at Super Welterweight and twice to Ema Kozin at Middleweight.

Her record includes at regular who's-who of the best in the world, so its quite deceiving that Bajic Halasi´s record currently stands at 14-18 (9). At 36 years of age, she is probably past her best, but she never shied away from a challenge and always gives it her best shot.
