Wallberg is a paper champion and a joke as is boxing in Sweden! The WBC is part of the same pathetic joke. They break their own rules to fulfill a poltical agenda and of course to make money as well. Her championship has absolutely no legitamacy but was bought and paid for pure and simple. Its a disgrace to the sport of boxing.

I agree with you Rick This is what made me very angry: “She was a troublesome boxer,” Wallberg told Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet. “I’m cold, so my fitness was probably not 100%.
“It was a tough match. I thought I’d have to chase her, but she came all the time.”
The Swedish organization that oversees combat sports allowed only an eight-round fight instead of the 10 that is usually required for a world title fight. There isn’t much boxing in Sweden, as it was reportedly the first eight-round bout in the country since 1967.

Wallberg, while still fighting as an amateur, fought and won against Myriam Lamare. the very same Lamare that scored heavily against Holm. Wallberg has talent and potential. and she did take 5 years off for an extended "maternity leave." Having her back in the sport is a positive aspect. She's not to blame for Sweden's backward's positition on boxing.
