Christina Hammer is a knockout in more ways than one.

There’s a new female fighter on the scene racking up wins and turning heads: Christina Hammer. She is the current WBO and WBC Middleweight Women’s World Champion.

The 26-year-old is from Dortmund, Germany, and has nine wins coming by knockout. She is also known outside the ring and is currently making a name for herself in fashion.

Hammer is sponsored by Anita, a lingerie, sports bra and swimwear brand. She chatted with Maxim in Detroit, where she was watching two-time Olympic gold medalist and potential future opponent Claressa Shields fight for the Super Middleweight Championship.

She told the media org that her uncle was a boxing trainer, and she started going to him when she was young. Her best punch is her left jab because “It’s sharp, and I have a long reach.” She believes her best fight to date was last November, which was a unification fight in Germany against Kali Reis. She picks Triple-G as her favorite boxer because he’s a knockout machine and they’re both from Kazakhstan.

She also told Maxim that she likes a polite guy with manners, and does not like guys who eat too fast. If you’re going to ask her out, plan something more than just dinner.

Learn more about her with the Maxim Q&A and check out some of her pics below.
