Stefi Cohen faced Marcelo Nieto in his second Pro boxing match on Fight Night 3 Hafthor Bjornsson / Devon Larratt undercard on Saturday September 18, 2021 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. While the multi-time Venezuelan powerlifting record holder had an incredible performance against Colombian Nieto, they finally settled for a draw.
Stefi, now 1-0-1, won his professional boxing debut after knocking out opponent Haydee Zapa (4-4-0) on June 4, 2021 at Mundo Boxing’s Night of Knockouts in the Dominican Republic.
It’s safe to say that she caught the boxing bug after tasting her first win in the ring and the powerlifting champion decided it was something she would like to continue training and participating in. . After all, she’s competitive with just about anything and everyone wants to show off their skills in the ring these days.
The 29-year-old coach and entrepreneur has trained with Cuban boxing coach Pedro Diaz and also had a recent session with UFC fighter Paige VanZant to prepare for Nieto, a mixed martial artist with a 3-3 record in MMA.
The event was broadcast by CoreSports, however, their website was apparently shut down during the fight and we don’t have a video footage of the match at the moment, but we will update if it becomes available.

She was super excited to be able to step into the ring again to show off her progress, and she’s done a lot, taking her new business very seriously and spending a lot of time improving her skills.
We’ll assume that Stefi hasn’t finished his boxing career and we can’t wait to see his progress and his next game.
