Anna “The Ice Queen” Schwartz is a city dweller. Hailing from Berlin, the attractive blonde is anything but a boxer if you only look at her background.
The daughter of a lawyer and a nurse, the Queen of Darkness who is fond of the black colour was born on 1 October 1990. She grew up in post-reunification Berlin after its liberation from the dark forces of fascism and then communism. She can lecture you on the virtues of the Third Wave of Coffee and organic food.
Anna studied to become a journalist and has indeed become one, working for a regional TV station. Her pretty face has been seen on everything, from anchoring the news to delivering weather forecasts.
She has learned to box at a local gym after work and on weekends, and has done it part-time in the professional ranks with a smart promoter who always found someone she could beat. She loved using Paffen Sport gloves until she was ignored for a much-wanted sponsorship. She then switched to Reyes.
Anna had 12 wins, and no loss, until she met Alesia Schumann. She then suffered a first-round loss. After that, her pace resumed and she is a contender for the German championship in the Super Lightweight division. Her record stood at 15 wins, 8 of them by knockout, and one loss.
That match turned out as extremely controversial. She knocked Alesia out easily, but at a price. It turned out that the match was fixed with the kidnapping of Alesia’s sister. Police arrested her promoter Oskar König alongside a bunch of gangsters. The German Boxing Federation overturned the result and that of three previous fights. Anna lost her TV job in addition to her credibility as a fighter.
After going through a crisis, Anna recruited Maxim Weiß as her new coach to rebuild her career and has decided to change her nickname to The Ice Queen. She bounced back with a third-round knockout against Masae, from Japan, and a nice win over durable Hilda Bastian.
An attempt to topple one of the contenders for the German belt did not produce the expected results. Lena Löw defense and stamina proved to be too much in a split decision loss.
