5'5" German featherweight Silke Weickenmeier was born on October 8, 1979 in Speyer, Germany and has been boxing since January 11 1995. She is managed and trained by her father Siggi Weickenmeier.

Silke began her career in combat sports in Taekwondo and in kickboxing and won German and world kickboxing titles. (Her sister Ribana is also a promising kickboxer.)

On November 1, 1995 she lost her pro boxing debut with a fifth-round TKO by Severine Grandsire of France in a scheduled six-round bout. Grandsire advanced to 1-3 as a pro boxer.

On April 16, 1996, she lost her second pro fight to Austria's Ulrike Stangl, with a six-round decision. This was Stangl's pro debut.

On May 3, 1996, she won a six-rounder with Nadia Hockmi of Strasbourg, France, who was making her pro debut.

On June 6, 1996, in Binz, Germany, she won a four-round decision in a junior lightweight bout with Darina Chakolawa of Bulgaria who fell to 0-3.

On December 14, 1996 in Bratislava, Slovakia, she fought to a four-round draw with Andrea Lapcikova of Germany, who fell to 0-2.

On May 3, 1997 Silke won the WKA 53.5-kg world kickboxing championship and successfully defended this title three times. She was voted WKA Germany competitor of the year in 1997 and 1998.

On January 4, 1997 she won the German featherweight title with an eight-round decision over Nathalie Meiss of Neu-Isenburg, Germany, who fell to 5-2 (4 KO) with the loss.

On February 28, 1997 in Saarbrücken, Germany, she won a six-round decision in a rematch with Andrea Lapcikova.

She won the WIBF European featherweight title in Speyer, Germany on 1 November 1997 by outpointing Austria's Ulrike Stangl over 10 rounds.

On January 9, 1998 in Erfurt, Germany, she won a six-round decision over Christina Nigg of Switzerland, who was making her pro boxing debut.

On May 3, 1998 in Speyer, Germany, she defended the title with a 10-round decision over Hungary's Silvia Porteleki who fell to 2-2.

On September 29, 1998 in Schlol, Germany: she won a 6-round decision over Silvia Porteleki in a non-title bout. Portleki fell to 3-3.

On November 21, 1998, at Mannheim, Germany, she retained the title with a ten-round split decision in a rematch with Ulrike Stangl of Austria. Stangl's record fell to 5-3-1 with the loss.

On April 18, 1999 in Mannheim, Germany, she moved her pro record to 8-1 and won the vacant WIBF junior featherweight world title with a unanimous (96-95, 96-94, 99-92) ten-round decision over IWBF flyweight champion Para Draine of Spokane, Washington, USA. Weickenmeier was the busier fighter throughout, but Draine came on strongly in the late going to keep it close. Draine, fighting three classes above her usual weight, fell to 8-3 with the loss. 

On January 29, 2000 at the Sachsenarena in Riesa, Germany, a standing-room only crowd estimated at 6000 saw Silke (123 lbs) and Nadia Debras (120¾ lbs) of France fight to a ten-round draw in a contest for the WIBF Featherweight title. The scorecards were 98-93 for Debras, a 96-96 draw, and 96-94 for Weickenmeier, Debras forced the action but Weickenmeier landed with the better punches. A European reporter told me "lots of heart in this one, but the lack of punch, strength, skills and tactics made it look like two windmills were clashing."

On February 26, 2000 in Mannheim, Germany, Nadia Debras (120 lbs) of France won the WIBF Featherweight title with a ten-round decision over Silke (125 lbs). This was Debras' first win as a pro boxer and gave her a 1-5-1 record, but she had held several world titles as a kickboxer.

Weickenmeier vs. Krek On May 13, 2000 at Sartory Säle in Cologne, Germany, Silke (122 lbs) won a unanimous (99-93, 98-94, 96-94) ten-round decision over Austria's Krisztina Krek (120 lbs) for the WIBF European Junior Featherweight title. This fight was anything but a breeze for Weickenmeier who had problems in the early going with Krek's style and fast-paced combinations. Krek also finished strongly and fell to 7-3 after being ill-served by the judges' scorecards, according to my correspondent Jon Fox.

On May 20, 2000 at Lohau-Halle in Sonneberg, Germany, Silke (128¼ lbs) won a six-round decision over Agnesa Vidova (129 lbs) of Slovakia.

On May 28, 2001 at the Town Hall in Speyer, Germany, 600 fans saw Silke defeat Jennifer Radinovic of Croatia on points for the WKA 57-kg kickboxing world title. Radinovic was a late substitute for Teslime Celik of Turkey. Weickenmeier, previously champion in the 53.5-kg division, controlled the fight, and Radinovic received several cautions for illegal tactics. Weickenmeier said "it was a difficult fight, particularly as my opponent was so tall".

On April 14, 2002 at Broadway Discotheque in Mannheim, Germany, Silke  advanced to 14-3-1 with a controversial ten-round majority decision over Galina Giumliiska of Bulgaria for the WIBF Featherweight title. Giumliiska fell to 3-6-0 (0 KO).

On January 18, 2003 at Grugahalle in Essen, Germany Daisy Lang (121 lbs) of Bulgaria fought Weickenmeier (121 lbs) to a ten-round (96-94 Lang, 95-95, and 97-93 Weickenmeier) draw for the Global Boxing Union (GBU) junior featherweight title. Lang fought with a pre-existing knee injury that gave her problems in the later rounds, while Weickenmeier had problems making the weight but moved well and was more aggressive in the middle rounds. Weickenmeier appeared to run out of gas in the later rounds, perhaps due to her effort to make the weight, and Lang battled back into it despite her knee injury and an apparent calf cramp. Lang progressed to 16-1-1 (6 KO).

On May 10, 2003 at Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle, Stuttgart, Germany, a crowd estimated at 6000 saw Daisy Lang (121½ lbs) of Bulgaria win a ten-round majority (96-94,96-94,95-95) decision over Weickenmeier (121½ lbs) for the GBU Junior Featherweight title. Both were cut by head butts in a rough fight, Lang getting a badly swollen nose and Weickenmeier needing 20 stitches at a Stuttgart hospital.

Daisy (left) ended it with a badly swollen nose, and Silke (right) with a cut above her left eye. The majority decision was controversial, in part because of head butts, elbows and punching behind the neck by Lang in the first and fourth rounds, for which she was admonished by the referee. Silke Weickenmeier tried to establish herself with a more technical style and was clearly the fan favorite. Weickenmeier was given a standing ovation after the bout while Lang was booed and whistled for several minutes. Weickenmeier's team protested the decision to the GBU, asking that Lang be disqualified and the title again vacated. Lang's team countered that both boxers had been injured because Weickenmeier had fought carelessly. The judges' decision for Lang stood and she progressed to 17-1-1 (6 KO) while Weickenmeier fell to 14-4-3 (0 KO).

On September 20, 2003 at Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle in Stuttgart, Germany, a crowd estimated at 2000 saw Silke win the GBU Super Bantamweight title on a tenth-round TKO of Krisztina Poropszki of Esztergom, Hungary. "I am very content with this fight, because I showed I can box at a high level" said Weickenmeier. Poropszki fell to 5-4-1 (0 KO) in fights known to me, but her record was reported by some German media as 12-4.

Trisha Hill lands to Silke WeickenmeierOn February 14, 2004 at Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle in Stuttgart, Germany, Silke was TKO'd by Trisha Hill of Kennesaw, Georgia in the seventh round to win the WIBF Featherweight Title. Weickenmeier was unable to continue for the seventh after Hill broke her nose in the sixth. Hill improved to 7-3-1 (4 KO) with the win while Weickenmeier fell to 15-5-3 (1 KO). [Fight report and photos]

On May 5, 2004, WIBF president Barbara Buttrick issued the following press release:  "The WIBF has received, from the BDB, an analysis report of urine samples which showed Trisha Hill as having a substance in her system Norandrosterone - 5 ng/ml.  Upon receiving this report we did an extensive research, also confirmed with the World Anti Doping Association that this is an offence against the anti doping rules.   We therefore have no other option than to strip Trisha Hill of the World Featherweight Title and return it to Silke Weickenmeier.  Although we accept that Trisha Hill did not knowingly take anything illegal, we would warn boxers to thoroughly investigate the probable repercussions of any supplements or medications they may be using."


Weickenmeier works on Urbaez in a corner

On September 11, 2004 at DM Arena in Karlsruhe, Germany, Silke (120¼ lbs) defended her GBU Super Bantamweight title with a ten-round unanimous decision over Judith Urbaez, a.k.a. Austria Urbaez Urena (122 lbs), who fell to 6-3-1 (KO).

On February 15, 2005 at Alte Reithalle in Stuttgart, Germany, Silke defended her WIBF Featherweight title with a ten-round unanimous decision over Jayla Ortiz of Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. Ortiz fell to 11-7-4 (3 KOs).

On May 28, 2005 at the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle in Stuttgart, Germany, Silke (120 lbs)  defended the GBU Super Bantamweight Championship over Miki Kikukawa (120 lbs) of Nagoya, Japan with a 10-round unanimous (98-92,97-92,96-94)  decision.

On October 22, 2005 at the Brandberge Arena in Halle, Germany, 24-year-old Ina Menzer (5'6", 125½ lbs) of Mönchengladbach, Germany won a ten-round unanimous (97-93,98-92,98-92) decision over Silke (124½ lbs) for the WIBF Featherweight title.  Weickenmeier fell to 17-6-3 (1 KO) with the loss while Menzer, a former German amateur 60-kg champion, improved to 10-0-0 (4 KO's). 

Silke WeickenmeierWeickenmeier says that "A fight does not start with with my fists. It begins in the head and ends there also", as she tries to fight an intelligent, tactical fight.

In Silke's spare time she supports many social causes and tries to be a role model for the many young women who see her fights on German TV.
