Born on November 22, 1976 in Karlsruhe, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. A former standout amateur kickboxer, she began boxing in 1994. With technical precision and an aggressive style, the 5’ 3” “Dangerous Lady” would capture world titles in three weight divisions.
In the only defeat of her career, she lost her first title shot to Yvonne Trevino (TKO by 4) in April 1995 for the vacant WIBF flyweight title. Halmich, who was world champion for the majority of her career, reigned twice as WIBF flyweight champion, first from 1995-1999 and again from 2003-2007. Over two reigns she defended the title 28 times. She won the WIBF super flyweight championship in 1998 from Maria Rosa Tabbuso via 6th round TKO and captured the IWBF super flyweight title in 2004 with a unanimous decision over Daisy Lang. Halmich also held the WIBF light flyweight belt from 1999-2002 and successfully defended 10 times. A national hero in Germany, Halmich, who was guided by Hall of Fame promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl, routinely drew millions of television viewers to her bouts and popularized women’s boxing in Europe.
She retired in 2007 with a professional record of 54-1-1 (16 KOs) that includes wins over Jill Matthews, Hollie Dunaway, Elena Reid, Kim Messer and Delia Gonzalez.
