The World Boxing Association (WBA) awarded the American Alicia Napoleon as Boxer of the Month in August after her defense against Schemelle Baldwin, while the Mexican Anabel the “Wasp” Ortiz was the Honorable Mention.

The oldest sanctioning body in the world also published its monthly ranking with the corresponding movements in each of the lists by weight category.

Napoleon defended her crown for the second time last Thursday in a fight in Connecticut. The New York native got a technical knockout in four rounds against the American Baldwin also to maintain her belt of the super welterweight category, which she has owned since March of 2018.

For her part, veteran Anabel Ortiz won the 12th defense of the minimumweight version of the WBA belt by unanimously defeating Venezuelan Maria Milano last Saturday. The Mexican native won at the La Paz Arena, in Baja California, and has been a champion since November of 2013.

Napoleon now has a record of 12 wins, 1 loss, and 7 knockouts. Meanwhile, Ortiz has 30 wins, 3 losses and 4 knockouts.
