Erica Anabella Farias (13-0, 7-KOs) defeated Liliana Palmera (18-8, 12-KOs) to retain the WBC Female Lightweight title in an active bout with a lot of wide bombs and some nice combinations by Farias.

The fight took place at the Club Ingeniero Huergo in Comodoro Rivadavia, Chubut, Argentina.  Female boxing is particularly popular in Argentina, and women’s bouts are routinely broadcast on Argentinian television.

Farias let her hands go in the second round to start to take Palmera apart and stayed in control of the fight throughout.  She momentarily rocked Palmera with a flurry of punches at the end of the fourth round and there was some question as to whether Palmera would continue.  The fifth round saw Palmera struggling to get back into the fight, but by the end of the round, the fight was called by TKO.

Video of the complete fight (in Spanish), starts at approximately, 8:00 minutes in.
