Finer’s first real international success came when she won the WIBF Inter-Continental and WIBA European Super Flyweight titles in a unanimous decision in March 2006, before capturing the WIBF Bantamweight title in October 2009, a belt she defended successfully at the Nokia Arena in Tel Aviv this April.
