From the beginning of the battle, Sharipova was more active and more accurate than her opponent. She worked a lot on the body and performed multi-hit combinations. Chernoborodova was very good at keeping up and moved a lot, but it did not save her from a knockdown in the first half of the fourth round. 

The referee stopped the fight after a minute and ten-seconds of the fourth round. Sharipova became the M13 world champion in the light welterweight division. 

In this weight category, Sharipova also won the International Boxing Association (IBA) World Female Super Light Title in Kazan in 2020. 

For Sharipova, this victory was the 13th in her professional career. Chernoborodova also lost the first fight with Sharipova in 2017 by unanimous decision of the judges.
