Women’s Boxing Upcoming Championship Bouts!
In front of a crowd of 5,000 people cheering, “Mexico, Mexico,” Mariana Juarez defended her WBC Flyweight title against Gabriela Bouvier from Uruguay and won by TKO in the 7th round. With the stoppage by the Referee, Mariana’s record improved to an impressive 29-5-2 with 14 KOs.
Coming up this Saturday, May 21, 2011, Mexico’s Mariana Juarez (28-5-3, 13 KOs) will be defending her first Women’s WBC flyweight world title challenge against Uruguay’s undefeated Gabriela Bouvier (6-0-1). The bout will be held at the Entertainment Center of Morelia Michoacán in Mexico. The fight will co-feature two other title fights and is promoted by Boxeo de Gala. For those who might not remember, Juarez captured her title by defeating Simona Galassi on March 11th. There is no word on a media outlet as yet, however, my guess is you’ll be able to find it as a video streaming event.
Kaliesha “Wild Wild” West (13-1-2, KO’s 4) is defending her Women’s WBO Bantamweight title as the main boxing event on the “IFS8: Mass Destruction” fight card featuring MMA & Muy Thai bouts! No opponent has been announced as yet.
The fight, promoted by Red Scorpion Promotions will be held on June 18, 2011 in the Pico Rivera Sports Arena in Pico Rivera, California. For folks in California, ticket information can be obtained from Team West @ firstname.lastname@example.org or (240) 498-1478. There is no word yet on a media outlet for the event, but I’ll bet it’ll be available on streaming video so watch for it!
