The judges scored it 49-48, 47-48, and 49-48 for Peloumpi.
Manfredi took to her Instagram page to release a short statement on the fight.
I wana thank my team @lookyamotrainingcampofficial and my coach @coachcharlton
All the people present in a way or another.
My sponsor @watchdoapp and all the great people that compose it.
Wasn’t the result I was thinking but life is so.
Ain’t the first time that I missed closely the belt result.
Either I stop either I continue and I progress. I did chose the second option.
You will see me again with better performance.
Thanx to all – SOURIS MANFREDI
