N. Korean female boxer loses title after skipping match

   SEOUL, Feb. 26 (Yonhap) -- A female North Korean boxer has been stripped of her international championship after missing a defense match for unspecified reasons, a South Korean official from the sporting body said Thursday.

Ryu Myung-ok, 26, became super flyweight champion of the World Boxing Council Female division in October 2007. She has not appeared in a title match since defending her championship against Mexico's Ana Maria Torres in April last year. The WBC Female is an affiliate of the World Boxing Council (WBC).
