Women’s Boxing: Weekend Championship Results, 10/7-10/8

Boxing sensation and Mexico’s own Ana Maria Torres (27-3-3, 15 KO’s) made a successful title defense against the Argentinian challenger Marisa Johanna Portillo (10-4-2) at Las Cabos in Baja California, Mexico by unanimous decision. The judges scored the obviously lopsided battle 100-89 across all three score cards. American referee David Mendoza took a point from Portillo for excessive holding in the sixth round which explains the judges final scoring in the 10 round bout.

Round Nine action includes the following:

 

 

Yesica Marcos, New Interim WBO Super Bantamweight Champion wins by TKO!

Argentina’s own Yesica Marco (18-0-1, 6 KO’s) the current interim WBA Super Bantamweight Title holder fought an impressive five rounds before her Brazilian challenger Simone Da Silva Duarte (10-1-0) threw in the towel for the TKO to become the interim WBO Super Bantamweight Title holder. Marco and Duarte had last met on April 9, 2010, when Marco gained the interim WBA title by unanimous decision after ten hard-fought rounds of boxing. This is Marco’s third successful defense of her interim WBA title. This was also Marco’s first fight in nearly six months having sustained a serious injury to her right shoulder.

The full fight is below (starts around 12:00 minutes in, though the pomp and circumstance is well worth it.  BTW, check out the packed stadium!).

In  a well-fought, surprisingly well-matched, title match, the Women’s WBF Flyweight Champion, Irma “La Guerita” Sanchez (21-5-1, 6 KO’s) was able to retain the championship with a unanimous decision against challenger Susana Cruz Perez (5-3, 2 KO’s).  The contest took place in Los Cabos, Mexico and was promoted by Hector Garcia’s HG Boxing.  As with many of the higher caliber women’s bouts in Mexico, it was a headlining bout televised to a wide audience on the Televisa network.

The judges decision was 97-93, 96-94 and 100-90 in the champion’s favor.  For more information on the bout, check out Saddoboxing.com.

Women’s Boxing: Two upcoming world bouts to watch for!

Women’s Boxing: Two upcoming bouts to watch for!

Flyweight Championship battle in Mexico!

Championship boxing in the 109 weight division will pit Mexico’s Irma “Guerita” Sanchez (19-5-1, 5KO’s) against Panamanian Carlota Santos (5-2-3, 4KO’s) in a battle for the WBF female flyweight belt. Fighting on the “Puños de Hierro” card promoted by HG Boxing and Hector Garcia, Sanchez is attempting to make history by being the first female Mexican boxer to hold two world championships across two weight divisions. The fight will be held tonight at the Coliseo Olimpico de Guadalajara, Jalisco.  The fights will be broadcast in Mexico by Televisa — and my guess is we’ll be able to catch fight the on streaming video as well as a YouTube posting a few days after the fight.

World Title Middleweight Belt in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad!

Tori Nelson (3-0-1) of Ashburn, Virginia will be flying down to Trinidad to face Las Vegas fighter, Lorissa Rivas (4-1, 3KO’s) to compete for the 10-round World Title Middleweight belt @ the Jean Pierre Sports Complex in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobego on July 29, 2011.  The 10-round bout will be on the same card as the 12-round championship fight for the vacant 147 lb., WBC Caribbean Boxing Federation (CABOFE) title pitting Rumanian born, Montreal-based fighter Jo Jo Dan (28-1, 15KO’s) against Trinidad and Tobego’s own Floyd Trumpet (16-8-2, 9KO’s).

In a nice piece by writer Jeff Schneider, Nelson is quoted as saying,”I knew that God was going to bless me with an opportunity to be a world champion, but never this quick. I know boxers who have fought longer and haven’t had a chance. This is a dream come true and truly a blessing.”   The full feature article about Tori Nelson in Leesburg Today is here.  There’s no word on whether the bout will be broadcast.

>>>>>REMINDER!!!

Tonight!  “Knock Out Cancer” fight card with Alicia “Slick” Ashley taking on Christina Ruiz for the vacant WBC Female Super Bantamweight World Title at the Hunts Point Market in the Bronx, NY! If you can’t get to the fight — you can find it streaming on GoFightLive TV for $9.99.  The proceeds go to fight cancer — as worthy a cause as you could ever find.  The link is here.
